Webinar! Thermal Energy Transport and Saltwater Intrusion Modelling with HydroGeoSphere
HydroGeoSphere Research Highlight - Physics based hydrological modeling to predict soil moisture in a cold climate mesoscale catchment
Thank you @Keshav (one of our newest hires) for sharing his research with the rest of the team.
In this study HydroGeoSphere model was constructed for an agriculturally dominated watershed in the Red River Valley, Manitoba, to determine the soil moisture variability in cold climate in deeper soil layers. #climatechange is expected to produce more fluctuations in precipitation across the globe and cause more frequent extremes in soil moisture, including floods and drought which have major impacts on agriculture and infrastructure. Forecasting can help mitigate the impacts of soil moisture extremes by providing warnings about upcoming extreme events and prompt mitigation measures.
HGS RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT – Subglacial Meltwater Recharge in the Dongkemadi River Basin, Yangtze River Source Region
This HydroGeoSphere paper investigates the influence that the Dongkemadi Glacier (on the Tibetan Plateau) and deglaciation plays on catchment scale hydrologic processes:
HGS RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT – Analysis of drought conditions and their impacts in a headwater stream in the Central European lower mountain ranges
A study by researchers at the University of Bayreuth (@Sven-Frei @Sven-Frei-0) investigating the impacts that climate change may have on drought conditions in forested catchment with riparian wetland. There will likely be a shift in the water balance resulting in increases drought duration, intensity, and frequency.
This study provides a potential blueprint for those interested in simulating climate change impacts on hydrology at the catchment scale.

HGS RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT – Impacts of Coastal Shrimp Ponds on Saltwater Intrusion and Submarine Groundwater Discharge
This paper investigates the potential impact that aquaculture can have on solute transport and saltwater intrusion in coastal settings. In shrimp pond #aquaculture, saline ponds are perched on top of agricultural soils above a freshwater aquifer. In this study the authors have investigated several scenarios (varying pond water salinity, ponded water depth and farm/pond width) to see how it impacts a previously unstudied process contributing to groundwater salinization.
