December 2017 Water bLog Newsletter now available

December 7, 2017

As water researchers, we challenge ourselves to see water-related issues from a fresh perspective in our quest to find new and better solutions. Often this means either taking a much closer look or backing off to view things in a broader frame of reference. In this issue, we look at projects on both ends of the spectrum, from the microscopic to the regional.

These projects represent only a fraction of the active research underway at the UCWRR aimed at solving water-related natural resources problems throughout Utah, the nation, and the world.
