Crystele Leauthaud is currently finishing a PhD at the University of Montpellier 2 within the French Research Institute for Development in France and Kenya. Her research focuses on assessing the impacts of changing hydrological regimes on floodplain grasslands and subsequently on the societal benefits pastoralists obtain from them.The research presented at the EGU General Assembly 2012 focused on characterizing the hydrological processes of ecological importance in a data-scarce environment through a water system balance and the use of remote sensing techniques.
