Assessing climate and terrestrial water storage controls on evapotranspiration variability: towards improved understanding of watersheds as coupled nature-human systems (2017-07-13)Terrestrial evapotranspiration (ET) is an important eco-hydrologic process the couples the land surface water and energy budgets, links the water, carbon and nutrient cycle, and represents the largest water consumption ...
Long-range extracellular electron transport by dissimilatory metal-reducing bacteria across a physical separation (2018-04-18)Nanopores in anaerobic sediments are stores of secondary minerals like Fe and Mn oxides that are often the most abundant electron acceptors for microbial respiration. The reduction of these minerals is catalyzed almost ...
Modeling biotic and abiotic decay of trichloroethylene (TCE) using the Reactive Multi-Species Transport in 3-Dimensional Groundwater Aquifers (RT3D) code (2017-04-27)Removal of dense non aqueous phase liquids, DNAPLS, such as trichloroethylene, TCE, is vital to improving the health of groundwater systems. TCE contamination of groundwater systems is of significant concern and its removal ...
(2015-12-01)This dissertation was motivated by a study of the July 2010 Kalamazoo River oil spill. The spill occurred due to a pipeline rupture, releasing approximately 1.1 million US gallons of diluted bitumen into Talmadge Creek, ...
(2017-04-07)Understanding the behavior of combining flows in open-channel junction is of interest in environmental and hydraulic engineering. The complexity of the junction flow problem stems from flow mixing, secondary circulation, ...
Sensor data analytics and web applications to improve monitoring and understanding of lake processes (2017-12-05)Lakes are complex systems that involve numerous physical, chemical and biological processes. With modern sensor technology, large amounts of sensor data on lake water chemistry are being generated to help researchers ...
