The Lowman lab studies how spatial and temporal changes in water availability impact overall ecosystem health, productivity and sustainability.

Lowman and Barros (2018, Ecological Modelling) – A prognostic phenology model is coupled to a land-surface hydrology model to determine how periods of intermittent drought affect canopy development during the growing season and impact carbon and water fluxes between vegetation and the atmosphere.
Lowman et al. (2018, Remote Sensing) – The role of wetlands as a water store that boosts productivity during the dry season in the Upper Zambezi River Basin in Southern Africa is explored.
