An existing levee database accounts for just one fifth of the country’s actual total levee count, limiting the study of how these embankments affect riparian ecosystem health in the United States.
Even though natural logjams in rivers continuously change and maybe short-lived, their effects in terms of geomorphic diversity and habitat can be surprisingly long-lasting.
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.
This device allows scientists to measure how much snow is trapped in canopies and predict changes to snowpack—a critical factor in annual water availability.
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 simple, yet quantitative, index is demonstrated to quantify reductions in the peak flood resulting from multiple reservoirs, arranged in series along the same river reach.
Tree rings confirm that in northern Australia, the past 40 years have experienced more rain than any similar length of time in the past 600 years.
Quantifying integrated hydrological processes, biogeochemical reactions, and mineralogical characteristics can help predict water quality and quantity for mine-waste rock piles.
Another significant step has been taken in methods for managing water resources in the face of climatic changes and other future uncertainties. Dynamic adaptation is becoming a reality.
A new model helps shed light on residue mulch, an important regulator of surface soil conditions.
