Lynker Staff Publishes Research in AGU Journal

Peter La Follette, Fred Ogden, and Ahmad Jan authored an innovative research paper that was published in the AGU journal “Water Resources Research” called Layered Green and Ampt Infiltration with Redistribution. Simulating the fraction of precipitation that infiltrates into soil often presents a substantial challenge to hydrologic modelers; results that are both accurate and computationally inexpensive […]

Lynker Wins Pine Point Project’s Feasibility Study!

Dr. Jim McCord and supporting Lynker staff will provide consulting services related to mine water management, hydrology, hydrogeology, hydrologic modeling and impact analysis for the Pine Point Project’s Feasibility Study and the Environmental Assessment. Situated in Canada’s Northwest Territories, with nearly 60 lead-zinc deposits stretching over a 20 km x 80 km area and characterized as complex paleokarst hydrogeology. Water […]

Lynker’s Dr. Vargas Recognized as One of the Incredible Women Advancing Hurricane Research

Lynker’s Hurricane Modeler, Maria F. Aristizabal Vargas, Ph.D., has been recognized as one of the seven incredible women advancing hurricane research and forecasting. Working at NOAA’s Environmental Modeling Center, Maria develops coupled forecast models to better represent how the ocean drives hurricanes, including their track and intensity. These models are critical for forecasting storms as they estimate […]

Lynker Staff Awarded ESIP Lab Award!

Lynker staff Rachel Bash and Mike Johnson, PhD  won an Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Lab Award to tackle the lack of standard methods to find and access Earth system data related to water, wildfire, and the environment. They are building an open-source project that federates thousands of data sources in a common catalog and will […]

Lynker’s Lead Hydrologist Co-Authored Paper in Communications Earth & Environment Journal

Lynker’s Lead Hydrologist, Keith Jennings, PhD, co-authored a paper on “Recent Decreases in Snow Water Storage in Western North America” published in the Communications Earth & Environment Journal. The work, led by University of Vermont Postdoctoral Researcher Kate Hale, examines how climate change threatens the ability of western North American mountains to act as water […]

Lynker Presented at the California Water and Environmental Modeling Forum

Lynker’s Dr. McCord Jim and Justin Clark presented at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the California Water and Environmental Modeling Forum (#CWEMF) in Folsom Lake, California. The theme for 2023, “Modeling for Integrated Water Management,” was well attended by water modeling experts from across the US. Dr. McCord presented his paper that compared and contrasted […]

Lynker Contributes to Whale Research Across the Hawaiian Archipelago

Lynker’s Research Specialist, Eden Zang, along with many others, is making important contributions with new research asking the question: Does more than one population of humpback whales occupy the Hawaiian archipelago?  Their research uses sound monitoring and a remotely operated surface vehicle equipped with sound recorders to track the presence of koholā throughout the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
