Groundwater-surface water exchange within montane and alpine regions of the Front Range and Rocky Mountains, Colorado
MetadataShow full item record
Climate-change modeling scenarios have projected that drought will be more likely to occur in dry regions of the world, surface-water and groundwater availability is likely to decrease, and water quality will be negatively impacted. Characterizing how excess nutrients and pollutants are naturally removed via groundwater and surface water exchange is a great topic of interest for ecologists, water managers, and agricultural researchers. The future timing of the water cycle becomes more important as air temperatures increase and precipitation occurs as rain instead of snow. This hydrologic change ...
