The geology and the structure of Earth’s critical zone control subsurface moisture storage potential and determine the resilience of forest and river ecosystems to drought.
River basins are dynamic environments that are always changing and reorganizing under geologic forces. New research investigates how this shape shifting influences aquatic speciation and extinction.
Forest degradation may be as widespread as deforestation in the Amazon, but its impact on energy, carbon, and water fluxes is less well understood.
El marco teórico que estudia los límites planetarios define cuánta perturbación humana pueden soportar los diversos procesos del sistema terrestre, pero puede que no describa adecuadamente el ciclo del agua o la medida en que lo hemos alterado.
Billions of people rely on water resources that originate across borders. New research evaluates how climate change and increased water demand could affect future water stress.
New research examines how shifts in aboveground ecology influence belowground hydrology in the Arctic.
The planetary boundaries framework defines how much human disturbance various Earth system processes can take, but it may not adequately depict the water cycle or the extent to which we’ve altered it.
A new study uses the planetary boundaries concept to formulate an approach to water management that considers both global and local limits to water cycle modifications.
A new analysis technique could help scientists improve the temporal resolution of satellite gravity data and see trends in terrestrial water storage and movement in near real time.
A new study compares the accuracy of three observation-based methods of calculating snow water equivalent, a key component in water management.
