Keith is currently conducting research in coordination with Dr. J. Pomeroy and national and international collaborators to develop and apply fully distributed models of snow and forest hydrology to mountain environments to evaluate climate and ecological sensitivity of snow hydrological processes. This includes the design and management of a hydrometeorological field campaign, consisting of a large network of research-grade instruments to evaluate how forest vegetation structure and neighboring clearings influence micrometeorology and the spatial patterns of meltwater availability.
