Modeling salt movement and halophytic crop growth on marginal lands with the APEX model
Saline soils negatively impact crop productivity in nearly 20% of irrigated agricultural lands worldwide. Cultivation of highly salt-tolerant plants, or halophytes, may increase productivity compared to conventional ...
Modeling Head-of-Reservoir Conditions at Shasta Lake, California to Evaluate Downstream Juvenile Fish Passage
Restoration of Chinook salmon and steelhead is a priority in the Sacramento River Basin because they were listed under the Endangered Species Act in 1989 and 1998, respectively. Shasta Dam and Reservoir, constructed in ...
Mechanistic water balance approach for reconstructing past streamflow using tree ring (proxy) records
Long-term records of streamflow are important for water resources planning and management purposes. The extent of instrumental streamflow records is about 100 years at most which may not provide an adequate picture of past ...
Assessing water resources in Khorezm, Uzbekistan for the deveopment of aquaculture
Aquaculture is currently the world's fastest growing animal-producing sector. The Khorezm province in southwestern Uzbekistan has over 450 small lakes that could be developed for aquaculture, diversifying the local economy ...
Instrumenting Wildlife Water Developments to Collect Hydrometeorologic Data in Remote Nevada Catchments
Hydrologic models estimating the contribution of surface water runoff to groundwater recharge often require inputs of precipitation data. However, models estimating precipitation in Nevada are based on extremely limited ...
