Understanding and predicting the geomorphological response of fluvial and tidal channels to bank retreat underpins the robust management of water courses and the protection of wetlands.
Some deltas are susceptible to land loss during sea level rise, whereas others gain land because of changes in the courses of rivers.
A record-length turbidity current triggered by river flooding has revealed a new link between the surface and the deep sea.
Policymakers, industry and conservation professionals, and tribal members explore pathways to a sustainable future for the millions of people reliant on the “lifeblood of the American West.”
Drought continues to threaten Maui’s native land-based and marine ecosystems, water resources, and traditional ways of life. But conservationists have hope—and ways to fight back.
Benefits might accrue for both wildlife and climate resiliency if more floodplains along the lower Missouri River were allowed to flood.
A new method shows a key relationship between the width and makeup of Earth’s river channels over time. The technique could be applied to other terrestrial bodies, such as Mars.
Findings of a new study have implications for water quality, aquatic ecosystem health, and water treatment and management as the world warms.
Dam-building has decreased the amount of sediment transported by rivers, while land use changes have increased the amount.
Winter is fading away, but the answers may be beneath the ice; a new collection on winter limnology tackles the unknowns.
