Noelle Patterson is a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Davis, studying hydrology with a focus on rivers and streamflow. For the last year, Noelle has lived in Reno, NV, close to her study sites on the Truckee River. Noelle has a particular interest in how streamflow interacts with ecological systems, and how human management of rivers can change these systems. 

Her talk is broken up into three core sections:

  1. What is a watershed?
  2. Brief history of the Truckee River Basin
  3. Cottonwoods of the Lower Truckee River.
