VT News story on new project about forest and water interactions in New Zealand

VT News Article The Forest Flows program will focus on developing methods to predict and optimize water use and supply in planted forests to answer the questions: Where is the water? Where is it going? And who gets to use it? This new project will involve collaborators in New Zealand, Australia, and institutions in the …

New project focusing on forest-water interactions in New Zealand

We are beginning a new study as collaborators on a large project in New Zealand led by Scion, which is a government-owned company that carries out scientific research for the benefit of New Zealand. In this study, we will be examining competition for water between forests and downstream users. Read more about this project here …

Congrats Carrie!

Carrie Jensen successfully defended her dissertation on temporary streams. We’re proud of her and wish her well as she moves on to new things.  Special thanks to her committee for their help and support: Andy Dolloff, Daniel McLaughlin, Durelle Scott, and Yang Shao.

PhD Assistantship in Biogeochemistry at Virginia Tech for a project at Hubbard Brook

We are seeking applicants for a Ph.D. research assistantship in the biogeochemistry of forested ecosystems.  Research will focus on the fate and transport of weathering products across spatial gradients within watersheds.  Project goals include characterizing dynamic solute fluxes that will help us understand how ecosystems respond to and recover from different global change drivers. The …

Carrie’s manuscript on temporary stream dynamics in the Appalachians

Carrie Jensen’s first paper was accepted in Hydrological Processes this week.  Her work is about characterizing the spatial and temporal dynamics of headwater stream wetting and drying.  This manuscript documents patterns of stream network expansion, contraction, and disconnection in watersheds from New England, Appalachian Plateau, Valley and Ridge, and Blue Ridge physiographic regions.  Her research …
