Are we really running out of water?
Kate Brauman looks at how much of our water we’re using on a global basis, and finds it's less straightforward than it sounds.
Kate Brauman is the lead scientist for Global Water Initiative at the Institute on the Environment at the University of Minnesota, where she studies the coupled interaction of land-use change and water resources. Kate brings together the study of hydrology and plant-water relations with economics and policy to explore the effects of land cover on water delivery to downstream users. She is focused on hydrologic ecosystem services and global water availability and use, particularly by agriculture.
