Ben Livneh

Research Scientist
CIRES

Biography

Ben joined PSD in August, 2014. Previously, his doctoral research focused on land surface model development relevant to both land-atmosphere interaction, hydrologic prediction, and cold-season processes. His recent projects have explored the hydrologic impacts of bark beetle and dust-on-snow disturbance on Colorado River streamflow. Additionally, he has developed a daily hydro-meteorological data set over the conterminous U.S. (1915-2011) at a 1/16 degree (~ 6km) spatial resolution that has been widely used. Ben is primarily interested pursuing projects that quantify hydrologic impacts across multiple spatial and temporal scales relevant to water resource management.
