I am working in three key areas:
- Human dimensions of moisture recycling
- Ongoing work examining the social dynamics of human well-being.
- Working with researchers at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (NOAA) on climate change impacts to precipitationsheds
- Continuing work on the governance of moisture recycling (see paper)
- Working with researchers at University of Bonn on moisture recycling interactions with societies in Central Dry Region of Myanmar
- Adaptive capacity and climate change
- Frontiers of sustainable science
My PhD research aimed to understand the dynamics between sources and sinks of atmospheric moisture, particularly how terrestrial evaporation is related to downwind, terrestrial precipitation. Work from a pilot study was published in 2012 in Biogeoscences (Keys et al. 2012), and ongoing work continues apace (e.g. Keys et al., 2014, Keys et al., 2016, Keys et al., 2017). Here is an (old!) informal whiteboard talk where I described my research while a PhD student at the Stockholm Resilience Centre.
