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 from water stable isotope data and represents geochemical dissolution at the catchment-scale as a simple first-order kinetic …

Welcome Paolo!

Paolo Benettin, a Ph.D. student from the University of Padova in Italy, arrived last week and will join our lab group for the next 9 months. He will be working on watershed modeling of transport processes and using stable isotope tracer data from our research site at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire. …

Dr. Nicolas Zegre from WVU visited this week

I want to thank Nic Zegre for visiting with us in the lab this week. Nic was invited to Tech for a seminar in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation. He packed the seminar room with his talk on “Characterizing the impacts of mountaintop removal mining on catchment hydrology.” Nic is an assistant …

Streamwater Nitrogen Dynamics in the Shenandoah National Park

    Todd Scanlon is visiting us this Monday and will give a seminar on stream nitrogen dynamics from the Shenandoah Watershed Study. More information about the seminar can be found on the VWRRC website. There will also be some time for faculty and students to speak with Todd from 2:00 to 3:30 in 136B …

How good is good enough?

Rhett Jackson, from the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at University of Georgia, visited us today for a departmental seminar.  His topic on forestry best management practices (BMPs) was interesting especially the question at the heart of his talk…how good is good enough?  The point he made is that while there are some …
