Scientific insights from the Agricultural Research Service’s long-term study sites underpin dozens of models and research methods that guide global land management and conservation practices.
River basins are dynamic environments that are always changing and reorganizing under geologic forces. New research investigates how this shape shifting influences aquatic speciation and extinction.
A new study quantifies persistent phosphorus in a drainage basin in Sweden and points out risks and oversights to factor in to future stream management.
It’s about dam time: Beavers are acknowledged for their firefighting skills in five recent blazes.
As heavy rain falls more frequently, the land alongside a river has a greater effect on the waterway’s nutrient levels—for better or worse.
A new map of global river systems is based on crowdsourcing and the latest topography data sets.
Clear air policies have led to dramatic reductions in acid rain and improved ecosystem health, but it now appears that climate change could counteract those gains.
Lakes in the US and Europe have been getting more tea-colored over the past 30 years, and this “browning” trend may increase nutrient levels and affect lake water quality.
Studying the Prairie-Pothole Region of North America could help improve water resource management across the continent.
Increased glacial melt is boosting winter streamflows by filling aquifers, a new study on an Alaskan river suggests.
