Coastal California fog—a key source of water for the iconic redwood tree—has declined by a third. Can a trace gas, carbonyl sulfide, be used to assess the effect on plant productivity?
Students use real data sets to explore how population changes, power generation, and water-saving strategies affect surface and groundwater use.
Accounting for key soil and snow variables shows a much higher impact on simulated permafrost area than uncertainties in land cover and climate data.
The largest body of fresh water on Earth governs the exchange of gases between water and the atmosphere that makes it a carbon sink for the entire region.
The amount of moisture transpired from leaves increases for some tree species but drops on average.
