Fulbright Lecture
The lecture describes methods, techniques and tools about how to close the gap
between natural resources managers and disaster managers. The approach
presented enables researchers, managers and practicioners to better
communicate and find solutions through effective collaboration. Key roles play
here the Understanding Soil Processes and Ecosystem Services at various
Renschler’s research at the BOKU combines two of his major contributions: the
Geospatial interface for the Water Erosion Prediction Project (GeoWEPP), a
geographic information systems (GIS) software tool and the PEOPLES
Resilience Framework. Both enable to assess the impact of climate and land
use/cover change on runoff, soil erosion and flood dynamics and to design more
integrated watershed management strategies for sustainable development and
more resilient communities.
Geospatial Project Management (GeoProMT) is also introduced to better
analyze and assess geo-spatial physical and non-physical processes in
landscapes (a special course on this topic starts May 25 2016; see link below).
Chris Renschler, Associate Professor in Geography at the University at Buffalo The State University of New York, USA, is currently Fulbright Visiting Professor at
the BOKU through the end of June 2016.
