Welcome David!

A new student, David Lee, joined our lab this week.  David completed his B.S. at the University of Florida in environmental engineering in 2015. David was most recently working for the US Forest Service as a forestry technician/wilderness ranger and was

Carrie awarded VWRRC grant and coauthored GRL paper on strontium isotope dendritic network models

Carrie Jensen was awarded a student seed grant through the Virginia Water Resources Research Center for her dissertation work on storm dynamics of expansion and contraction of temporary headwater streams.  Andy Dolloff, with the US Forest Service Southern Research Station and the

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,

Winter is Coming

I have been going to Coweeta every one or two weeks for the past two months to monitor sprinkling events on the soil model. Although I am measuring only one thing, water, being precise is actually very difficult. There are

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

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

Sprinkling on the model

Kevin, Brian, and I went to Coweeta to improve the irrigation system. They installed a pressure pump to the water line, then we placed tipping bucket rain gauges at randomized locations, and then Brian turned on the water. Water pressure
