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

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

Filtration, Irrigation, and Preliminary Instrumentation

Kevin, Brian, and I installed a reverse osmosis filtration system, an irrigation line, an electrical line, and several data instruments/loggers. This included pounding a 7-foot copper grounding rod into the ground. The filtration system is used to change the chemistry

Hoop-House at Coweeta

Construction on the soil model at Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory has begun! We will be using the model for a water and nutrient reaction and transport experiment to answer questions, such as: What is the dominant process (e.g., biogeochemical or hydrologic) for
