Natural and anthropogenic impacts on a freshwater wetland, Lake Bogoria, Kenya
gail ashley, Rutgers University-New Brunswick
Introduction Wetlands are an important water resource in arid regions (<400 mm annual precipitation) and may also provide grazing opportunities for farm animals. Permanent freshwater wetlands are also important ...

Artesian blister wetlands, the intersection of geomorphology and hydrogeology
gail ashley, Rutgers University-New Brunswick
Groundwater and Geomorphic Processes Many geomorphic processes (such as slumps and landslides) involve groundwater, but this invisible component of the hydrologic cycle does not always receive the attention or ...

Eco-geomorphic response to river flow regulation downstream of Gavins Point Dam, Missouri River, South Dakota
Samantha Greene
Fluvial geomorphic processes interact with ecological processes along the terrestrial-aquatic interface to create a dynamic and complex environment. This environmental interface is often referred to as the ...

Development of Palimpsest Landscapes
Jasper Knight
In Physical Geography, a palimpsest landscape is one where, in any given region, the different landforms that make up the landscape are not of the same age, with some surface landforms being very young because they ...

Automatic extraction of flow paths from digital elevation models
Kyungrock Paik, Korea University
Once a raindrop falls on the ground, it flows downward. During this journey, the raindrop joins other raindrops and the mass/volume of the water increases, flowing along creeks, streams, and rivers. This is called ...

Influence of Dam Operations on Geomorphology and Sediment in the Colorado River corridor, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
Amy Draut
Large dams can greatly alter the physical and biological environments of rivers, by changing the magnitude and timing of flows, sediment transport, and water temperature. One of the most iconic landscapes in the ...

Restoration of the Elwha River system, Washington, through dam removal
Amy Draut
Most of the world's rivers contain one or more dams. On streams and rivers in the U.S. alone there are more than 75,000 dams large enough to store more than one year's runoff capacity, and many more dams ...
