New paper on streamflow response to forest management and increasing precipitation extremes

Dr. Charley Kelly, a former lab member and now with the Division of Forestry and Natural Resources, West Virginia University, had a paper accepted in Geophysical Research Letters this week.  The study re-examines several paired watershed studies from the Coweeta Hydrologic Lab,

New paper linking water age and solute dynamics at Hubbard Brook

Paolo Benettin’s paper was just accepted, which was the result of his study abroad visit here in the lab during the fall 2013 and spring 2014.  The manuscript explores water age-dependent transport in estimating weathering-derived solute export.   The model predicts water travel time dynamics

New paper showing alternative source of stream dissolved organic carbon in a headwater catchment

JP Gannon just had another paper accepted in Water Resources Research this week.  The study suggests that dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in headwater streams may be generated from shallow to bedrock regions in the catchment, which mostly occur near the catchment divides

Creating a research brand – advice from my Ph.D. advisor published today in Science

Published in the working life section of Science, Jeff provides some good advice for early career academics – it’s “critical to find one’s focus and voice and have it heard—quickly.”  He discusses how early career scientists need to develop brand identity

Contribution to new textbook on the critical zone

A new textbook called Principles and Dynamics of the Critical Zone was just published.  I co-authored a chapter of the book on Ecohydrology in the Critical Zone with Georgianne Moore, Peter Troch and Greg Barron-Gafford.  Here is the publisher’s description of the

Two new papers on water travel times in catchments

Two new papers are available in Water Resources Research on water travel time estimation in catchments.  Both represent collaborations with colleagues to advance techniques in understanding the transient nature of travel time distributions.  We’re getting closer and closer to answering
