Water resources management, hydrological sciences
Dr. Lane's research is on the intersection of physical hydrology and water management, with a focus on more efficiently allocating scarce freshwater resources for humans and ecosystems under increasing stressors. Her research group performs applied, interdisciplinary investigations to advance understanding of coupled human - natural river systems using a combination of field measurement and modeling (physically-based, water planning, statistical, geospatial, etc.). She has also lead several efforts to integrate emerging research and technical tools to guide coordinated instream water management in the western U.S. from the stream rich to the state scale.
