After the dam comes out: groundwater-stream interactions and water quality impacts of former reservoir sites

Next week, the Watershed Hydrology Lab will be well represented at the CUAHSI 2014 Biennial Colloquium. We’ll be presenting four posters, so here come the abstracts… After the dam comes out: groundwater-stream interactions and water quality impacts of former reservoir sites Krista Brown and Anne Jefferson Over that past decade, …

Sensitivity of precipitation isotope meteoric water lines and seasonal signals to sampling frequency and location

This work is being conducted by undergraduate lab member, Allison Reynolds. Allison presented her work as part of the CUAHSI/USGS Virtual Workshop on applications of laser specs to hydrology and biogeochemistry. From that workshop, she will have an extended abstract published in a USGS open file report, and her poster …

GSA 2013: Revisiting watershed drainage density: New considerations for hydrologic prediction

While I’ll be missing the festivities at the 125th anniversary edition of the the Geological Society of America, my able collaborator Sarah Lewis will be presenting our work in a session on “Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology: Past, Present, and Future.” Here’s what she’ll be showing off: Revisiting watershed drainage density: …

AGU 2013: Transient Storage versus Hyporheic Exchange in Low-gradient Headwater Streams

Abstract season is upon us. I’ll be at AGU, where there looks to be loads of good sessions, including one on “Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions: Physical, biological, and chemical relevance“. Hopefully, my work (abstracted below) will be part of this session. Transient Storage versus Hyporheic Exchange in Low-gradient Headwater Streams A.J. …

Brock Freyer defends his MS on the Mighty Mississippi

Today, Brock Freyer will be defending the results of his M.S. research. The title of his research project is: Fluvial Response to River Management and Sediment Supply: Pool 6 of the Upper Mississippi River System, Southeastern Minnesota. Brock’s committee is composed of Anne Jefferson (advisor), John Diemer and Ross Meentemeyer. …

Mackenzie Osypian defends her thesis on stream restoration and transient storage

Mackenzie Osypian is defending her MS research in Civil Engineering at UNC Charlotte, April 22nd at 4:00 pm in McEniry Hall 441 on the UNC Charlotte campus. Mackenzie is advised by Anne Jefferson and Sandra Clinton. John Daniels and Jim Bowen are on her committee. Mackenzie’s research is titled: “Evaluating …

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.
