Researchers: Jennifer Burney (GPS), Steven Davis (UC Irvine), Amir AghaKouchak (UC Irvine), Jack Brouwer (UC Irvine), Frances Moore (UC Davis)
Location: California

California's food, energy, and water systems (FEWS) are interdependent and increasingly stressed by growth in resource demands, environmental policies, and severe and persistent drought. Integrating methods from geosciences, engineering, and economics, the team is modeling system interactions at a level of detail that will advance our understanding and help to inform future decisions on resource management in California and elsewhere.
