Students from watershed measurements (WR 417) spend the afternoon measuring streamflow on the Poudre
Our special issue at WRR 'Emergent aquatic carbon-nutrient dynamics as products of hydrological, biogeochemicial, and ecological interactions' is now open for manuscript submissions.
Lead-PI and ESS department head John Moore has been awarded an NSF STEM-C grant to investigate:"Research on Effects of Integrating Computational Science and Model Building in Water Systems Teaching and Learning". This is a multi-university/institution grant and the Watershed Hydrology group is a member of the CSU team. Congrats to John!
The McIntire-Stennis program has funded projects led by Covino and Wohl to investigate the role of valley meadows of Rocky Mountain National Park in altering streamflow dynamics. PhD student Deanna Laurel from the Wohl research group is leading these efforts.
Project led by Sara Rathburn receives funding to investigate the use of seismic and infrasound signals to monitor flow and transport in rivers
" Flow, Sediment Transport and Nutrient Flux Monitoring using Seismic and Infrasound Signals"
led by Sara Rathburn and together with collaborators Dr. Rick Aster and Dr. Brian Bledsoe has received funding from the CSU Water Center to investigate the use of seismic and infrasound to measure streamflow and sediment load during high flow events when conventional techniques are impractical.
Undergraduate honors student and lab member Joe DiMaria was awarded a prestigious NSF S-STEM Fellowship to support his studies and research. Joe is investigating stream-groundwater exchange dynamics in an active beaver meadow in Rocky Mountain National Park. Congratulations Joe!!
Thank you for visiting the watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry research group at Colorado State University. We are interested in understanding the physical, biological, and human influences on hydrological and biogeochemical processes across spatial and temporal scales.
