Our group is working on several projects at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire. These projects have been funded by a variety of sources including NSF Hydrologic Sciences, NSF Geobiology and Low Temperature Geochemistry, NSF LTER, NSF DBI-REU, USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station, and Plymouth State University.
Runoff generation processes
- Investigating the threshold nature of subsurface flow processes and contributing areas in Watershed 3 of the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest.
- Graduate Students: Joel Detty (PSU), Josh Benton (VT)
Spatial patterns in valley-wide stream chemistry
- Linking network patterns and processes of streamwater chemistry across scales in Hubbard Brook Valley.
- Collaborators: Christian Torgersen (USGS), Gene Likens (Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies), Don Buso (Cary Institute), Winsor Lowe (Montana), Scott Bailey (USFS)
- The use of stable water isotopes to partition runoff and estimate water transit time through components of the landscape.
- Collaborators: John Campbell (USFS), Mark Green (Case Western U), Paolo Benettin (University of Padova)
- Development of a linked hydrological and biogeochemical model of spatially-explicit processes for virtual experiments.
- Collaborators: Karin Rebel (Utrecht)
- Graduate Student: Sija Stofberg (Utrecht)
Biogeochemical hotspots and denitrification
- Hot spots and hot moments of soil denitrification in northern hardwood forests.
- Collaborators: Peter Groffman (Cary Institute), Christy Goodale (Cornell), Jennifer Morse (Portland State U.), Sarah Wexler (University of East Anglia), Scott Bailey (USFS)
Lateral Weathering Gradients
- Lateral weathering gradients typify critical zone architecture in glaciated catchments
- Collaborators: Scott Bailey (USFS), Don Ross (UVM), Brian Strahm (VT), Madeline Schreiber (VT)
- Graduate Students: Amanda Pennino (VT), Josh Benton (VT), Stephanie Duston (VT), Jenny Bower (UVM)
