Researchers modeled and mapped how eight key aspects of human societies affect hydrological cycles.
Students and community members monitor the health of mountain water reserves, which capture and release water, evening out wet and dry periods downstream.
Mounting evidence suggests the need for improved water planning strategies and revamped hydrological models.
New dating of glacial features reveals predictable glacier behavior in response to climate warming and cooling in the Everest region in the past 8,000 years.
Data from 45 burned sites help researchers better understand climate change and wildfires’ impact on snowpack.
The new graph convolutional recurrent neural network (GCRNN) will enable water utilities to forecast water use, even if some sensors fail.
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.
The complex interactions between forests and the water cycle might end up with more rain falling in the ocean—far from a thirsty land.
Exploratory modeling in California’s Central Valley indicates that evaluating the costs, benefits, and risks to individual providers is necessary to ensure the viability of future water projects.
Satellite data combined with in-situ observations on terrestrial water storage change and human water consumption provides a more accurate picture of runoff dynamics at sub-basin scale.
