Dr. Schwalm is interested in the interactions between the terrestrial biosphere, climate, land cover, ecosystem state, and land management practices. He recently completed a study on the 2000-2004 drought in western North America, an analysis that merged land surface and climate model simulations, remote sensing, field based data, surface weather station data, stream gauge data and inventory data. Prior to joining the Center, he was a research professor at the School of Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability at Northern Arizona University. Dr. Schwalm holds a B.A. from Cleveland State University, a Master’s from the University of Montana, and a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota.
