New paper: Seasonal versus transient snow and the elevation dependence of climate sensitivity in maritime mountainous regions

Jefferson, A. 2011. Seasonal versus transient snow and the elevation dependence of climate sensitivity in maritime mountainous regions, Geophysical Research Letters, 38, L16402, doi:10.1029/2011GL048346. Abstract: In maritime mountainous regions, the phase of winter precipitation is elevation dependent, and in watersheds receiving both rain and snow, hydrologic impacts of climate change …

Heat in the Southeast

Cross-posted at Highly Allochthonous Here in Charlotte we had a hot summer. We barely escaped the dubious distinction of hottest summer on record, with an average temperature of 81.1° F (27.3 ° C) between 1 June and 31 August. The record had been set in 1993, when Charlotte recorded an …

Is Anne a hydrologist? geomorphologist? hydrophillic geologist? or whathaveyou?

The major theme of my research is analyzing how geologic, topographic, and land use variability controls hydrologic response, climate sensitivity, and geomorphic evolution of watersheds, by partitioning water between surface and ground water. The goal of my research is to improve reach- to landscape-scale prediction of hydrologic and geomorphic response to human activities and climate change.

Post-doctoral Scholar – Oregon State University Hydrogeomorphic response to changing climates in the Pacific Northwest

Described below is a great post-doc opportunity to work with fantastic people. (I should know, I did my PhD and post-doc in this research group.) We are looking for someone to co-lead a multi-year, inter-institutional research effort to characterize and forecast the effects of changing climate on streamflows and geomorphic …

What does 2010 hold for water in the Charlotte region?

The Catawba Riverkeepers provide their take on the water and environment issues facing the Catawba River watershed and surrounding areas. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ut130iDhaKo] Since I’m posting this on January 1st, I suppose I should offer some prognostications for Charlotte area water resources  in the coming year. I’m not much at predictions, but …
