By including imprecise historical written records in their calculations, researchers were able to decrease uncertainty in estimations of future flood frequency.
Three-dimensional simulations suggest that some aquifers may be more vulnerable to contamination from leaky oil wells than others.
A new study finds a widely used water tariff does not effectively deliver subsidies to intended beneficiaries in Nairobi, Kenya.
A new modeling framework offers insight into how specific lakes' water levels respond to short- and long-term climate trends.
River researchers find a mathematical relationship that predicts the average shape of a riverbed over a defined distance, opening the door to new ideas about modeling braided rivers.
The results of a new study suggest that an improved understanding of the processes mobilizing mercury in soils will be necessary to predict water quality impacts.
An empirical study of water allocation and planning in five states concludes that they lack a statewide strategy to manage the impacts of climate change on water resources.
Researchers take a retrospective look to see if precipitation and flooding due to El Niño could have been predicted a priori.
Researchers use high-resolution simulations to reexamine the rainfall events that led to one of the most destructive floods in U.S. history.
A new framework provides scientists with a more precise understanding of potential evaporation from drying land surfaces.
