Research

research overview

  • Dr. Barnard's research is focused on investigating how vegetation processes affect water flow dynamics and pathways in soil and streams, and conversely, how water flow paths affect vegetation function in mountainous terrain. The ultimate goal is to improve our knowledge of how changes in land-use and/or climate will affect water resources and ecosystems. This interdisciplinary research uses state-of-the-art techniques to reveal patterns and processes at scales ranging from the leaf to the watershed.

Teaching

courses taught

  • GEOG 1001 - Environmental Systems: Climate and Vegetation
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Lect. and lab. Introduces the atmospheric environment of the Earth: elements and controls of climate and their implications for hydrology, vegetation, and soils. Emphasizes distribution of physical features across the Earth's surface and interactions between humans and their environment, especially those leading to global change on the decade to century time scale.
  • GEOG 4371 - Forest Geography: Principles and Dynamics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Surveys principles of forest geography and ecology. Includes both individual tree responses to environmental factors and species interactions within communities. Emphasizes forest dynamics and their relation to management problems. Same as GEOG 5371.
  • GEOG 4990 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Summer 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2019
    Offers thesis research under faculty supervision. May be repeated up to 6 total credit hours. Instructor consent required.
