The 2017 flash drought that parched the entire state of Montana and most of South Dakota, severely impacted the profitability of ranchers and farmers. In western Montana, fires burned some of the largest acreages in recent history.
In 2007, METER scientists developed a Thermal and Electrical Conductivity Probe (TECP) probe for NASA’s Phoenix Scout Mission, which landed on Mars May 25, 2008. The solar-powered lander collected data for five months until the sunlight waned, ice took over, and communication ceased.
As water resource management grows more complex, the cost of water increases and humanity’s food consumption soars to an all-time high, optimizing crop yields through efficient irrigation is becoming crucial.
Researchers are developing plants and management practices that help sports turf stand up to frequent use and perform well even during fall months.
Twelve tailor-made lysimeters help researchers uncover answers today that will help us better respond to changing environmental conditions tomorrow.
Climate change models predict earlier snowmelt and rainstorms that will be less frequent and more intense. What does this mean for the Utah Wasatch Plateau?
