Forecasting the Probability of Future Groundwater Levels Declining Below Specified Low Thresholds in the Conterminous U.S.

Posted on September 22, 2017 | Category: Technical Publication . Uncategorized |

Abstract
We present a logistic regression approach for forecasting the probability of future groundwater levels declining or maintaining below specific groundwater-level thresholds. We tested our approach on 102 groundwater wells in different climati

Phosphorus Sequestration in Sediments Along the Salinity Gradients of Chesapeake Bay Subestuaries

Posted on September 22, 2017 | Category: Technical Publication . Uncategorized |

Abstract
We used a sequential extraction technique to compare the forms and amounts of particulate phosphorus (PP) deposited in the top meter of sediment spanning salinities from 0 to 10 in three Chesapeake Bay subestuaries: the Potomac, Choptank, an

A calibration-free, robust estimation of monthly land surface evapotranspiration rates for continental-scale hydrology

Posted on September 22, 2017 | Category: Technical Publication . Uncategorized |

Continuous simulation of monthly evapotranspiration rates for 1979–2015 was performed by the latest, calibration-free version of the complementary relationship of evaporation over the conterminous United States. The results were compared to similar e

More local water for Los Angeles could mean a drier Los Angeles River

Posted on September 21, 2017 | Category: Technical Publication . Uncategorized |

Local leaders are working to make greater Los Angeles more reliant on local water in order to prepare for a hotter and more crowded future. A UCLA study published today is a reminder that achieving water independence would require a delicate balancin

Effects of municipal solid waste- and sewage sludge-compost-based growing media on the yield and heavy metal content of four lettuce cultivars

Posted on September 21, 2017 | Category: Technical Publication . Uncategorized |

Abstract
Compost has been recently suggested as an alternative to peat for the preparation of growing substrates in soilless cultivation systems. However, some physico-chemical properties of compost may reduce plant performance and endanger the quali
