Tuolumne River

Ecogeo undergrads begin expedition in the Tuolumne Watershed

The Tuolumne River: Ecogeomorphology's spring 2016 outdoor laboratory

Follow UC Davis' ecogeomorphology students over the next two weeks as they apply their interdisciplinary classroom education to one of California's iconic watersheds: the Tuolumne. Students of hydrology, ecology, engineering, geomorphology, and economics work together to integrate their knowledge in this capstone course and test what they've learned at UC Davis in an expedition setting.

Center exhibits Tuolumne photos through Oct. 10

The Center is blessed with several researchers and instructors who double as photographers. Come see their work on display through Oct. 15 at the UC Davis Buehler Alumni Center art gallery. Directions

Titled Lessons from the Tuolumne, the exhibition shows students and researchers at work and play in the central Sierra's Tuolumne River watershed.

Drought's impact, from Sierra to Pacific

The Center's Theodore Grantham and Joshua Viers lead a Mercury News special on the drought with their new research findings on the state's water demands. The analysis shows California's water heavily oversubscribed, with five times more water committed than flows through all the state's rivers and streams combined.
