Shrubs and trees across the United States routinely sip water stored in bedrock, a discovery that has implications for the terrestrial water cycle.
Decisions about water use will have to reflect changing trends in the local hydroclimate.
Scientists studying wood samples preserved by Old Faithful have determined that the famous geyser was dormant for several decades during the 13th century due to a megadrought.
El marco teórico que estudia los límites planetarios define cuánta perturbación humana pueden soportar los diversos procesos del sistema terrestre, pero puede que no describa adecuadamente el ciclo del agua o la medida en que lo hemos alterado.
New research highlights differences in drought and flood hazards globally under 1.5°C versus 2°C temperature increases and estimates associated human and economic effects.
The planetary boundaries framework defines how much human disturbance various Earth system processes can take, but it may not adequately depict the water cycle or the extent to which we’ve altered it.
A new study uses the planetary boundaries concept to formulate an approach to water management that considers both global and local limits to water cycle modifications.
New research looks at how changes in the arrangement of trees and canopy thickness influence the transport of water from the land surface to the atmosphere.
A pair of revisions to the Energy Exascale Earth System Model improves its ability to capture late afternoon and nocturnal rainfall as well as the timing and movement of convection.
Scientists link vegetation mosaics in California to patterns of weathered bedrock.
