New publication on urban energy balance
The authors examine urban energy flux variability across landcover and climate gradients of urbanized Los Angeles County.
Visualization and Ecohydrologic Models: Opening the Box
Naomi Tague and James Frew outline a framework for increasing the usefulness of ecohydrologic models through better visualization.
Hanan’s commentary on Megafires
Dr. Erin Hanan wrote a timely commentary addresses the debate on fires in the West.
New Publication! Snow, runoff, and counteracting influences
This research highlights how runoff losses/gains due to changes in snow dynamics as a result of climate change are mediated by site specific conditions.
New Book: Mountains in the Greenhouse
Longtime Tague Team Lab collaborator Don McKenzie just published a new book – a great, accessible, science book for the public introduction to the mountains we study and enjoy so much.
New Pub! Impacts of forest‐fuel treatments and wildfire on hydrologic fluxes in the Sierra Nevada
In this April Ecohydrology publication, “Fuels treatment and wildfire effects on runoff from Sierra Nevada mixed‐conifer forests” – RHESSys, constrained with spatially distributed field measurements, was used to assess the impacts of forest‐fuel treatments and wildfire on hydrologic fluxes in two Sierra Nevada firesheds. Saksa, P.C., Bales, R.C., Tague, C.L., Battles, J.J., Tobin, B.W., Conklin, M.H. (2019)Continue reading “New Pub! Impacts of forest‐fuel treatments and wildfire on hydrologic fluxes in the Sierra Nevada”
New Pub! Vertical processes and the nitrate concentration–discharge relationships in a semi‐arid watershed
In this new publication “Sensitivity of nitrate concentration‐discharge patterns to soil nitrate distribution and drainage properties in the vertical dimension“, the authors argue that vertical ‘variable source area’ (VSA) processes may be as important as lateral VSA in determining concentration-discharge relationships in a semi‐arid watershed. Chen, X., Tague, C.L., Melack, J.M., Keller, A.A. (2020) SensitivityContinue reading “New Pub! Vertical processes and the nitrate concentration–discharge relationships in a semi‐arid watershed”
New publication on Urban Vegetation impact from Drought
This study looks at the response and potential impacts of drought on urban vegetation, and the ecosystem services it provides to cities – where >50% of the worlds populations resides. Miller, D.L., Alonzo, M., Roberts, D.A., Tague, C.L., McFadden, J.P. (2020) Drought response of urban trees and turfgrass using airborne imaging spectroscopy, Remote Sensing ofContinue reading “New publication on Urban Vegetation impact from Drought”
New Publication on implications of Active/Passive management on abandoned cropland
In this study, the RHESSys model is used to study the post response (including potential climate change scenarios) of hydrologic and vegetation dynamics to an Active Management strategy (i.e. shrub clearing as a result of natural revegetation) in an abandoned cropland catchment of the Central Spanish Pyrenees. Khorchani, M., Nadal-Romero, E., Tague, C., Lasanta, T.,Continue reading “New Publication on implications of Active/Passive management on abandoned cropland”
