Soil clay content is an important characteristic that affects many hydraulic and mechanical properties of soil; clay mineral type is important for their prediction.
Despite conventional assumptions, a new study shows that evolutionary proximity of species defines root water uptake strategies, not their position in landscape or ambient environment.
New research provides a theoretical explanation of channel cross section geometry dependence on flow rate that is commonly observed and described with power-laws.
A rare atmospheric phenomenon that transports large quantities of water vapor into the coastal watersheds of the western USA is responsible for up to 10–20% of intense snowmelt events in the region.
Terrestrial water loss may explain the lack of previous budget closure in global mean sea level rise.
A new deep learning approach bridges ground rain gauge and radar data with spaceborne radar observations of Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission to improve precipitation estimation.
The 2021 Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission will measure water surface elevation, slopes, and inundations of rivers as narrow as 50 meters.
A rare attempt to directly estimate leaf area in a tropical African broadleaved forest suggests that there may be more tree foliage than previously estimated.
Do climate models truthfully mimic how drying soil affects land-surface budget partition?
High spatial and temporal resolutions of a data set on a proxy for plant photosynthesis, as well as contiguous global coverage, have great utility for a variety of applications.
