2014 Publications from Stroud Center Staff and Collaborators

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

Peer-reviewed publication of our research, education, and restoration activities is a fundamental tool for all staff at Stroud Water Research Center. This process often represents years of hard work, collaboration, and interacting with our peers throughout the world.

The articles below represent the pinnacle of our annual effort to communicate our research and education findings to our respective peer-communities. Many of these articles are published online via professional society journals and are available throughout the world at libraries and institutions of higher education.
