Gund Fellow, Asim Zia, discusses his research as part of the UVM ESPCoR research project, "Research on Adaptation to Climate Change" (RACC) in the Lake Champlain Basin. Asim is leading the agent based modeling that will help answer question 3 of the project, "In the face of uncertainties about alternate climate change, land use and lake response scenarios, how can adaptive management interventions (e.g. regulation, incentives, treaties) be designed, valued and implemented in the multi-jurisdictional Lake Champlain Basin?" The RACC project is a five-year 20 million dollar NSF funded ESPCoR project.

In addition to Asim, Gund Fellows Chris Koliba, Jon Erickson, Donna Rizzo, and Austin Troy are all part of the research team examining the overarching question of, "How will the interaction of climate change and land use alter hydrological processes and nutrient transport from the landscape, internal processing and eutrophic state within the lake and what are the implications for adaptive management strategies?".
