CSAS News: January 2010

Jeff Deems, new  member of CSAS Board of DirectorsEric Kuhn and Jeff Deems Join the CSAS Board of Directors

During their Annual Meeting in October 2009, the CSAS board of directors voted to expand the board to nine members, creating two vacancies, in hopes of recruiting one new member to represent the Colorado water stakeholder community, and another other new member representing the research community, and a research institution.  We were extremely fortunate that both Eric Kuhn, the General Manager of the Colorado River Water Conservation District, and Jeff Deems, a newly appointed staff scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center and with Western Water Assessment, sister institutes within CIRES at the University of Colorado, recently consented to accept those new board of director positions.  Both were officially elected to the CSAS board effective January 15, 2010.  Eric brings an encyclopedic resume of water management experience and research as well as his comprehensive engagement in Western and Colorado River water policy issues and organizations to the CSAS.  Jeff’s recent post-doctoral work at the University of Washington placed him squarely in the vanguard of mountain snow hydrology science and he will pursue that work in his new capacity as a staff scientist at Western Water Assessment by developing, in collaboration with Painter and the CSAS, a new generation of watershed-scale snowmelt modeling that incorporates dust affects on snowcover albedo and snowmelt energy budgets. See our Staff/Board Bio page, for bios on each of our Board and Staff members.
