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.
Researchers have developed a new analysis based on a river’s catchment area as opposed its length.
Living in Geologic Time: The making, breaking, and backpacking of North America’s Continental Divide.
Digital hydrographic maps have transformed global environmental studies and resource management. A major database update will provide even clearer and more complete views of Earth’s waterways.
Phosphorous stored in watersheds and affects water quality for decades. A new model predicts phosphorus accumulation and depletion, and the consequences for water quality conservation measures.
As river ice cover decreases, the physical and biological changes to river ecosystems vary with the watershed characteristics and river size.
A new study transforms a classic conceptual framework into a quantitative classification of streamflow generation patterns.
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.
