New research examines how shifts in aboveground ecology influence belowground hydrology in the Arctic.
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.
A new research effort has mapped 35 years of naturalized streamflow for 2.94 million river reaches worldwide: an invaluable dataset for hydrology, biogeochemistry, ecology, and remote sensing.
One hundred fifty years ago, the explorer and scientist argued that the West needed smart development. Now the fast-growing region is playing catch-up.
Large stones in streams provide crucial habitat for fish. Modeling the boulders and streamflow offers fresh insights into how water engineering projects alter aquatic habitats.
Hydrology has evolved as a transdisciplinary, data-driven science in a remarkably short period of time.
The field of hydrology embraces the balance of worldwide systems and local behavior.
A new project harnesses the power of the winter backcountry recreation community to gather data that are vital to understanding snow, from winter hazards to water resources.
Multiple factors often interact to amplify the effects of severe storms, droughts, and other extreme water-related events.
Bacterial DNA provides a good estimate of river discharge.
