EGU Abstract: Potential impact of lava flows on regional water supplies: case study of central Oregon Cascades volcanism and the Willamette Valley, USA

This abstract was just submitted to the European Geosciences Union meeting for a session on “NH9.9. Natural hazard impact on technological systems and urban areas.” I won’t get to go to Vienna in April, but at least a little bit of my science will. Thanks to Natalia for finding a …

Abstract: Using Computer Modeling To Asses Hydraulic Parameter Transferability From An Undeveloped To An Urban Watershed With Stormwater Infrastructure

Rounding out the abstracts from our group for the 2012 Geological Society of America meeting, Colin Bell will be presenting preliminary model results. USING COMPUTER MODELING TO ASSES HYDRAULIC PARAMETER TRANSFERABILITY FROM AN UNDEVELOPED TO AN URBAN WATERSHED WITH STORMWATER INFRASTRUCTURE BELL, Colin D., Dept. Infrastructure and Environmental Systems, UNC …

Abstract: Evaluating restoration effects on transient storage and hyporheic exchange in urban and forested streams

A third abstract from our group for the 2012 Geological Society of America meeting: EVALUATING RESTORATION EFFECTS ON TRANSIENT STORAGE AND HYPORHEIC EXCHANGE IN URBAN AND FORESTED STREAMS OSYPIAN, Mackenzie L., Civil Engineering, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Charlotte, NC 28262, mosypian@uncc.edu, JEFFERSON, Anne J., Department of Geology, Kent …

Abstract: Characterizing the effects of hydrometeorology and stream networks on urban stream temperature response to precipitation

I’ll be presenting recent graduate Brandon Blue’s work on urban stream temperatures in the urban hydrology session at the GSA meeting this fall. The following abstract will pair nicely with Charles’s work on stormwater management and stream temperatures. Characterizing the effects of hydrometeorology and stream networks on urban stream temperature …

Channel network extent in the context of historical land use, flow generation processes, and landscape evolution in the North Carolina Piedmont, Earth Surface Processes and Landforms Here’s the abstract: Intensive agricultural land use in the 18th through early 20th centuries on the southeastern …

Abstract: Evalulating restoration effects on transient storage and hyporheic exchange in urban and forested streams

Mackenzie Osypian presented the following poster at the Society for Freshwater Science Annual Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky in May 2012.   EVALUATING RESTORATION EFFECTS ON TRANSIENT STORAGE AND HYPORHEIC EXCHANGE IN URBAN AND FORESTED STREAMS   Osypian, M. L., Clinton, S. M., and Jefferson, A. J., Millions of dollars are spent each …

Abstract: Timescales of drainage network evolution are driven by coupled changes in landscape properties and hydrologic response

I will be at the CUAHSI 3rd Biennial Colloquium on Hydrologic Science and Engineering on July 16-18, 2012 in Boulder, Colorado. I’ve been asked to speak in a session on the co-evolution of geomorphology and hydrology. This is a cool opportunity for me, as I’ve been thinking about co-evolution in …
