HIGHLIGHTS – JAWRA DECEMBER 2015
In two companion papers, one by Domagalski and Saleh and the other by Saleh and Domagalski, the authors use SPARROW models to simulate annual phosphorus loads and concentrations and to evaluate the spatial distribution of total nitrogen sources, loads, and watershed yields of streams in California and adjacent states.
Pendergrass et al. examine the influence of bird habitation of bridges on stream bacteria.
Zhang et al. assess long-term nitrogen and sediment trends in non-tidal Chesapeake watershed rivers.
Brody et al. analyze the effects of land use and land cover on flood losses along the Gulf of Mexico coast from 1999 to 2009.
McCandless et al. present bank-full regional curves for the Alleghany Plateau, Valley, and Ridge; Piedmont; and Coastal Plain regions of Maryland.
Pradhananga et al. evaluate landowner motivations for civic engagement in water resource protection.
Hancock et al. develop a geospatial method to identify locations of concentrated runoff from agricultural fields.
Tang et al. use fly ash as a marker to quantify culturally-accelerated sediment accumulation in playa wetlands.
Villines et al. use GIS to delineate headwater stream origins in the Appalachian coalfields of Kentucky.
Petersen-Perlman and Wolf identify strategies for initiating cooperation and enhancing security in transboundary river basins.
Reiter et al. examine spatio-temporal patterns of open surface water in the Central Valley of Calfornia during 2000-2011and evaluate the influences of drought and land use.
Williamson et al. develop a TOPMODEL-based approach to classify ephemeral, intermittent, and perennial stream reaches.
