Article
Full-text available
Rivers and streams, when fully connected to their floodplains, are naturally resilient systems that are increasingly part of the conversation on nature‐based climate solutions. Reconnecting waterways to their floodplains improves water quality and quantity, supports biodiversity and sensitive species conservation, increases flood, drought and fire...

Article
Beaver dams are gaining popularity as a low‐tech, low‐cost strategy to build climate resiliency at the landscape scale. They slow and store water that can be accessed by riparian vegetation during dry periods, effectively protecting riparian ecosystems from droughts. Whether or not this protection extends to wildfire has been discussed anecdotally...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Beaver dams are increasingly being discussed as a tool to build drought and fire resiliency at the landscape scale-particularly for riparian and wetland ecosystems. While the ability for beaver-dammed riparian areas to be buffered against the effects of wildfire has been observed and discussed anecdotally, it has not yet been quantified. Our study...
Article
People with disabilities are chronically underrepresented in many geoscience departments across the country. There are a number of proposed reasons why this underrepresentation persists, one of which is lack of instructor training in designing accessible curriculum and making high-quality accommodations. This not only puts students with accessibili...
Article
Beaver damming creates and maintains riparian ecosystems in arid regions, which are often afflicted by seasonal and multi‐year droughts. We hypothesize that beaver ponds act as buffers against the effects of drought on nearby riparian vegetation via the following mechanism: beaver ponds formed upstream of each dam retain water during wetter parts o...
Chapter
Residual stress (RS) is often implicated in the failure of parts or assemblies, but there has not been any quantification or statistics collected on RS induced failures. Using the ASM Failure Analysis Database™, 147 individual case histories of failure analysis involving residual stress were identified and categorized based on various criteria. Inf...
