Connecting the Hydrologic Cycle From Hillslopes to River Networks

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This collaborative research will generate the first model that links the water and carbon cycles of river catchments by focusing on the interactions of water movement and organic carbon in hillslope soils, individual stream reaches, and over the entire river network.
