Modeling soil processes: Review, key challenges, and new perspectives
(Soil Science Society of America, 2016-05-13)
The remarkable complexity of soil and its importance to a wide range of ecosystem services presents major challenges to the modeling of soil processes. Although major progress in soil models has occurred in the last decades, ...
Using an integrated hydrological model to estimate the usefulness of meteorological drought indices in a changing climate
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016-10-13)
Droughts are serious natural hazards, especially in semi-arid regions. They are also difficult to characterize. Various summary metrics representing the dryness level, denoted drought indices, have been developed to quantify ...
Analysis of long-term groundwater storage trends in the Wairau aquifer, New Zealand
The Wairau Aquifer covers a small proportion of the Wairau catchment in the Marlborough District of New Zealand just prior to the river discharging into the sea. The aquifer is almost exclusively recharged by surface water ...
Model selection on solid ground: Rigorous comparison of nine ways to evaluate Bayesian model evidence
(AGU Publications, 2014-12-19)
Bayesian model selection or averaging objectively ranks a number of plausible, competing conceptual models based on Bayes' theorem. It implicitly performs an optimal trade-off between performance in fitting available data ...
Estimating climate-change effects on a Mediterranean catchment under various irrigation conditions
Study region: The Lerma catchment, a small (7.3km²) sub-catchment of the Ebro Basin in northern Spain. Study focus: The Lerma catchment underwent a monitored transition to irrigated agriculture, using water from outside ...
Quantifying river-groundwater interactions of New Zealand's gravel-bed rivers: The Wairau Plain
(Wiley on behalf of the National Ground Water Association, 2017-12-21)
New Zealand’s gravel-bed rivers have deposited coarse, highly conductive gravel aquifers that are predominantly fed by river water. Managing the groundwater resources is challenging because the recharge mechanisms in these ...
