HIGHLIGHTS – JAWRA DECEMBER 2016
Mittelstet and Storm developed a method to identify and quantify legacy phosphorus at the watershed scale using a mass-balance approach and uncertainty analysis.
Hathaway et al. examined the influence of changes in streamflow from diversions on potential responses of groundwater-dependent riparian vegetation.
Safeeq and Hunsaker quantified hydrologic characteristics of southern Sierra Nevada headwater watersheds across a range of climatic conditions.
Coats et al. used a range of statistical procedures to estimate temporal and spatial trends in nutrient and sediment loading to Lake Tahoe.
Burnham et al. used interview data to assess major challenges climatic and social changes pose to Utah’s water future and to evaluate potential solutions.
Bieger et al. improved equations relating bankfull widths, depths, and cross-sectional areas to drainage areas in streams across the United States.
VanderMuelen et al. characterized nutrient status of lakes in Upper Midwest national parks and used paleolimnological techniques to compare modern nutrient conditions to pre-1900 conditions.
Sharp et al. employed a groundwater reactive transport model to identify potential management practices to remediate Se contamination in southeastern Colorado and assessed the economic and institutional constraints of these practices.
Kea et al. identified trends and patterns in the establishment, funding mechanism, and magnitude of stormwater utilities (SWUs) by analyzing location, population density, home value, and year of establishment for a comprehensive national SWU database.
Boutwell and Westra explored relationships among coastal populations, wetlands, hurricane-tropical storm intensity, and economic damage using factor analysis.
