By adding support for spatially variable velocity fields and anisotropy, the CoSMoS simulation package can more accurately reproduce physical phenomena.
A new study transforms a classic conceptual framework into a quantitative classification of streamflow generation patterns.
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.
Novel use of standard, single-station seismological techniques can be used to remotely monitor aquifer systems.
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.
As heavy rain falls more frequently, the land alongside a river has a greater effect on the waterway’s nutrient levels—for better or worse.
A hidden trove of groundwater is left over from the last ice age.
A new long-term flume experiment shows that bed load gravel travels downstream in recurring, 10-hour pulses even when water flow and sediment supply are constant.
A new information-processing framework helps researchers tease out the factors driving ecological shifts over short timescales.
Cohn emphasized the use of hydrologic science for the public good, to protect ordinary citizens from flood and pollution hazards and to reduce losses from natural disasters.
