Recent beetle epidemics have driven tree die-offs across North America, and previous studies predicted an increase in annual streamflow would follow—but a new study shows this may not be the case.
Rain falling on bare soil can form a hard crust that prevents further infiltration. But do these crusts worsen land degradation or help to prevent it?
New satellite observations show connection between solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence and soil moisture—a key mechanism behind drought onset.
Given enough time, short-term variations in temperature, precipitation, and solar radiation influence the fluxes of water and carbon through ecosystems.
Colonies of tiny caddisflies slow stream sediment transport with their silk nets.
Researchers determined the environmental conditions most likely to trigger a cholera epidemic in a region in eastern Congo.
