A new technique using dissolved noble gas tracers sheds light on how water moves through an aquifer, with implications for water resources and their vulnerability to climate change.
Nationwide, civil engineers consider precipitation values from NOAA to design their structures. But those values are missing another contributor to flood risk: snowmelt.
A new model quantifies the relative contributions of denitrification and other processes of nitrogen uptake, such as by plants, from groundwater in riparian areas around streams.
A Montana researcher has developed a map for predicting how climate change may alter the water supply.
A new study shows that mesquites employ hydraulic redistribution to move water between soil layers in the savannas of Santa Rita.
Field data, new technologies, numerical modelling, and geostatistical methods can be combined to improve understanding of the interactions between surface water and groundwater.
The authors of a recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics describe how isotope hydrology offers new insights into interactions at the interface between soil, vegetation, and the atmosphere.
Scientists review several decades of research on the complex freshwater reach where fluvial and tidal forces meet.
Tidal rivers are a vital and little studied nexus between physical oceanography and hydrology.
