Water Resource Policy, Planning, and Management

Water themes have long occupied my attention, starting with my master’s program in Water Resources Management and continuing through to my current studies of hazards planning and stormwater management. This work includes both physical/hydrological dimensions as well as behavioral aspects at the public and private level.

Note that in an attempt to honor the confusing spirit of copyright law, I’ve not uploaded PDFs of my papers to this page, but

  • I provide pointers to most of the publishers’ websites, which typically provides at least access to each paper’s abstract
  • I’ve made most of these available as full text through www.researchgate.net and
  • I’m happy to send PDFs attachments to individuals under the fair use doctrine, so contact me via email if interested
