WRRC Brown Bag Seminar: Requiem for the Santa Cruz: An Environmental History of an Arizona River

Sep 3 2014 - 5:00am - 6:30am

Robert H. Webb will discuss his recently published book, "Requiem for the Santa Cruz: An Environmental History of an Arizona River (link is external)." For thousands of years, the Santa Cruz River has been a focal point in Southern Arizona. A detailed reconstruction of riverine changes in the vicinity of Tucson, Ariz., reveals the interrelationships among riparian ecosystems, water supply, flood control and land use.

Robert H. Webb is an adjunct professor in Hydrology and Water Resources and an associate scientist in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Arizona. He is the co-author -- with Julio Betancourt, Roy Johnson and Ray Turner -- of "Requiem for the Santa Cruz: An Environmental History of an Arizona River" (UAPress, 2014).
