This project involves the monitoring of rain basin green infrastructure (GI) elements at Biosphere 2 (B2). The goals of this project are to: (1) investigate BMPs for storm water harvesting, (2) demonstrate to the public and UA students simple approaches to storm water management, and (3) reduce the water consumption at B2 for landscaping. This project has research, education, and outreach objectives. The project also provides opportunities for UA students to learn about GI, to participate in rain basin installation, and to gain skills in ecological research and environmental monitoring.
