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 and channel heads.  The study also suggests that hydropedological patterns are critical to understanding DOC …

New paper on lidar DEM evaluation by Cody Gillin

Gillin, C.P., Bailey, S.W., McGuire, K.J., Prisley, S.P., 2015. Evaluation of lidar-derived DEMs through terrain analysis and field comparison, Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, 81(5): 387-396, doi: 10.14358/PERS.81.5.387. Abstract Topographic analysis of watershed-scale soil and hydrological processes using digital elevation models (DEMs) is commonplace, but most studies have used DEMs of 10 m resolution or coarser. …

Paper published on mapping of hydropedologic spatial patterns

A paper from Cody Gillin’s master’s thesis was accepted last week.  The manuscript titled “Mapping of hydropedologic spatial patterns in a steep headwater catchment” will be published in a special issue on hydropedology in the Soil Science Society of America Journal.  This paper appears in the special issue with another paper on the same project, …

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 in a headwater catchment at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire, USA was …

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 Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest.  This study was initiated by Patricia Brousseau’s REU project in 2008. …

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.

Welcome Brad

Brad Bowers recently joined the group as a field technician for the Hubbard Brook Hydropedology project.  Brad will be responsible for collecting water samples, tending to field equipment, and helping with field-based activities on the project.  He is also beginning his M.S. program this fall with Dr. Mark Green at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. …

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 are part of our Hydropedology project, which is focused on explaining the spatial and temporal variation …
