Hydrologic Regulation of Dissolved Organic Matter Biogeochemistry From Forests Through River Networks

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This collaborative proposal will generate the mathematical models that simulate stream flow in White Clay Creek and the movement of water carrying dissolved organic carbon from soils to the stream. Standing on the stream bank, scientists have been looking both upslope and downstream, focusing on the interactions of water movement and organic carbon supply and investigating processes within the hillslope soils, individual stream reaches, and the entire river network.
