The WaterSES project
WaterSES is an international interdisciplinary group working to understand and compare the social-ecological dynamics causing and caused by water scarcity in three very different watersheds in Spain, Oklahoma and Idaho.
WaterSES incorporates four place-based pilot study areas – arid southern Spain, the south-central Great Plains of Oklahoma (US), and the Portneuf and Treasure Valley of Idaho (US), that have different climates, water needs and socio-ecological dynamics, but are all experiencing new regional, societal demands for limited water resources.

The Social-Ecological Research Lab of Idaho State University is seeking graduate students to join the lab who are interested in Ecosystem Services valuation and Social-Ecological Systems. The research project will focus on using GIS modeling tools (InVEST and ARIES) to quantify and explore trade-offs and synergies between ecosystem services for watershed management and planning.
