Water on Tap

29 min 45 sec ago
Monday, October 27, 2014 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

A new opportunity to learn more about H2O in a relaxed, informal environment. Speakers will present water-related talks to a diverse audience. It is an opportunity to engage the broader Corvallis community about important ideas in water management. Buy a brownie, pull up a pint from Oregon Trail Brewery, meet locals interested in water issues, and support a local business and community resource. This month, students working on the Transboundary Freshwater Dispute Database will present a series of talks on their work.

If you are interested in presenting a 25-minute or 50-minute talk at a future event, please contact Brett Boisjolie.

Willamette Water 2100 Webinar: Modeling the Human Side of Water Scarcity in the Willamette Basin

29 min 45 sec ago
Wednesday, October 8, 2014 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Abstract

To predict the when, where, and how of future water scarcity in the Willamette Basin we have developed a model that integrates natural system components of water supply with the human system components of water demand. Constructing an economic model for the human side of this system presents a number of challenges. Some of these are different from and others are similar to the challenges faced by those modeling the biophysical system components.

This seminar will describe some of those challenges, and explain how we have tried to address them. We’ll describe the models we have constructed for agricultural water use and urban water use. These two models have empirical and theoretical underpinnings, and they have strong similarities as well as important differences. In both cases, the models represent powerful tools for addressing questions about future water scarcity: first, they provide a basis for predicting how the demand for water will grow in the future as human and natural systems change; second, these same models represent a way to quantifying the impact of water availability on social values in terms of the costs or benefits of changing water scarcity, as well as the costs and benefits of policy actions aimed at mitigating water scarcity.

Dr. Jaeger's work is part of the Willamette Water 2100 Project.
