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

New paper by Gannon on organizing groundwater regimes and response thresholds by soils

JP Gannon had a paper accepted this week in Water Resources Research titled “Organizing groundwater regimes and response thresholds by soils: A framework for understanding runoff generation in a headwater catchment.” Here’s the abstract: A network of shallow groundwater wells

New paper on the hydropedology of Hubbard Brook

A new paper was accepted this week in the journal Geoderma.  The paper shows how spatial patterns of soil development reflect the influence of transient groundwater within the soil profile in nearly all landscape positions throughout a headwater catchment at the

Seminar at UVA today

Kevin will be presenting work on the Hubbard Brook hydropedology project at UVA’s Department of Environmental Sciences Seminar today. It always fun visiting our colleagues up the road, but we really need to do it more often.

Project update: Spring break ground-penetrating radar & REU

About a month ago, JP and Cody drove up to Hubbard Brook to spend their spring break running a ground-penetrating radar (GPR) survey in Watershed 3 to estimate depth to bedrock and glacial till thickness.  Both JP and Cody’s projects
