Bruce is a Full Professor in the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Along with John Nieber, Bruce is leading the North Shore Community Climate Readiness project’s hydroclimatic modelling work. Their work involves combining data describing historical climatological conditions (like average monthly high temperatures) and historical environmental conditions (like average daily snow depths) with projections derived from global climate models to provide estimates of how conditions on the North Shore will change between 2016 and 2045.
In addition to leading the North Shore Community Climate Readiness project’s hydroclimatological work, Bruce has a variety of other research focused on understanding the quantity and quality of surface waters influenced by agricultural practices. Bruce also has extensive experience modeling water flows in disturbed agricultural watersheds.
