My picks of the September literature

Haggerty, Roy; Martí, Eugènia; Argerich, Alba; von Schiller, Daniel; Grimm, Nancy B. 2009. Resazurin as a “smart” tracer for quantifying metabolically active transient storage in stream ecosystems J. Geophys. Res., Vol. 114, No. G3, G03014
(Roy will be talking about this work in our session at the GSA Annual Meeting next month.)

Harman, C. J.; Sivapalan, M.; Kumar, P. 2009. Power law catchment-scale recessions arising from heterogeneous linear small-scale dynamics Water Resour. Res., Vol. 45, No. 9, W09404
(Ooh, this sounds really cool. I’ve been interested in heterogeneity in watersheds for a while, and this looks like an interesting take on the topic.)

Moussa, Roger 2009. Definition of new equivalent indices of Horton-Strahler ratios for the derivation of the Geomorphological Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph Water Resour. Res., Vol. 45, No. 9, W09406

Philip Brunner, Craig T. Simmons, Peter G. Cook
Spatial and temporal aspects of the transition from connection to disconnection between rivers, lakes and groundwater
Journal of Hydrology, 376: 159-169

Astrid Lambrecht, Christoph Mayer, 2009, Temporal variability of the non-steady contribution from glaciers to water discharge in western Austria, Journal of Hydrology, 376: 353-361.
(Relevant to my Mt. Hood work.)

I. P. Holman, M. Rivas-Casado, N. J. K. Howden, J. P. Bloomfield, A. T. Williams. 2009. Linking North Atlantic ocean-atmosphere teleconnection patterns and hydrogeological responses in temperate groundwater systems. Hydrologic Processes. 23(21): 3123-3126.
(The invited commentaries (like this one) in HydroPro are almost always worth a read to see what leading hydrologic thinkers are thinking about.)

Tiwari, V. M.; Wahr, J.; Swenson, S. 2009. Dwindling groundwater resources in northern India, from satellite gravity observations Geophys. Res. Lett., Vol. 36, No. 18, L18401
(This is at least the third paper I’ve seen on this topic in the past month. It is big big news.)

Some of these papers will be useful for my teaching (Fraley et al. and Schenk and Hupp), one will be useful in revising a paper from my Ph.D. research (Navarre-Sitchler et al.), and the rest are of general research for on-going projects or projects in the design stage. I hope they give you a flavor of the sort of things that set spinning the research gears in my mind.
