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.
Research in Yosemite National Park offers a new benchmark for understanding water balance changes in a mountainous basin 4 decades after its natural wildfire regime was reestablished.
Most representations of the water cycle are flawed, researchers found by analyzing over 450 diagrams: The effects of humans, seasonal changes, and different biomes are often neglected.
The first spatially realistic catalog of synthetic flood event risk across the entire United States uncovers high-risk areas and estimates the probability of another Katrina–level flood loss.
While vast volumes of fresh groundwater are located offshore, pumping these reserves can also deplete on-shore aquifers and cause land subsidence.
Cities can reduce surface runoff and increase groundwater recharge by encouraging their residents to implement simple, hydrologic modifications on individual buildings and single-family parcels.
Mandated wastewater injection reductions in effect since 2016 are inadequate for preventing future, large-magnitude earthquakes in the state, according to a new induced seismicity model.
Grain size and sediment delivery pathways from the Ganges delta have been used to model downstream facies changes.
A new study presents a framework for finding the best optimization algorithm.
High-resolution modeling of summertime streamflow in the Pacific Northwest reveals the effects of glacial retreat on streamflow will vary by elevation.
