  • Seeps important in watershed nitrogen retention

    Globally, the mobilization of nitrogen has increased significantly due to human activities, such as industrial and agricultural development. As a result, over the past decades, eutrophication in coastal ecosystems has increased. Watershed nitrogen retention is an important mechanism to decrease nitrogen loading to downstream water bodies. Generally, in the northeastern U.S., the amount of ...

  • Water hits and sticks: findings challenge a century of assumptions about soil hydrology

    Researchers have discovered that some of the most fundamental assumptions about how water moves through soil in a seasonally dry climate such as the Pacific Northwest are incorrect -- and that a century of research based on those assumptions will have to be reconsidered. A new study by scientists from Oregon State University and the Environmental Protection Agency showed -- much to the surprise ...

  • New model simulates US groundwater and surface water interactions

    A new model to simulate groundwater and surface water interactions has been released by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The groundwater and surface water FLOW (GSFLOW) model simultaneously accounts for climatic conditions, runoff across the land surface, subsurface flow and storage, and the connections among terrestrial systems, streams, lakes, wetlands, and ground water. 'GSFLOW can be used ...

  • Unlocking the water held by US forests not so easy, say experts

    Can forests, which process nearly two-thirds of the nation’s water supply, be managed to help slake our growing demand for water and avert the worst consequences of climate change? A new report from the National Research Council suggests a need for caution in trying to tap greater water output from forests, and recommends more research and citizen involvement to help protect water quality and ...

  • OpenMI for climate modelling

    In a novel approach to represent the coupling between the land surface and atmosphere, DHI and DMI (Danish Meteorological Institute) are exploiting OpenMI technology to link hydrological and climate models.
