Hydrogeological properties of degrading permafrost come to fruition with a new 3-D modeling study that highlights the increasing role of groundwater in the water cycle of high-latitude areas.
A new study suggests that the commonly used split sample approach in hydrology, where time series are divided into a part for model calibration and a part for model validation, should be abandoned.
A medida que las inundaciones aumentan en frecuencia e intensidad, los productos químicos enterrados en los sedimentos de los ríos se convierten en “bombas de tiempo” que esperan activarse.
Road salt is primarily to blame for the shift, though the water remains within safe levels for now.
Dams and deforestation have chipped away at the millions of cubic meters of wood that flow through rivers and out to sea.
Concrete, used in everything from streets to skyscrapers, needs sand, often mined from active rivers in developing countries with little oversight. Researchers can now use satellites to keep watch.
Phosphorous stored in watersheds and affects water quality for decades. A new model predicts phosphorus accumulation and depletion, and the consequences for water quality conservation measures.
A new study explores a possible proxy for seasonal freshwater input that could elucidate changes in alpine snowpack as the planet warms.
New research on Kiribati’s beleaguered atolls paints a complex picture of reef recovery.
Shrinking snowpack, thawing permafrost, and shifting precipitation patterns have widespread consequences. Can new technologies—and public policies—help communities adapt?
