    • 1. Introduction to the Symposium 

      Selker, John (introductory speaker); Rodriguez-Iturbe, Ignacio (introductory speaker) (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    • A1. Landslide Patterns as Fingerprints of Climate Change and Basin Scale Integrated Risk 

      Convertino, M.; Morales, F.; Troccoli, A.; Linkov, I.; Catani, F. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Landslides are extremely important geomorphic events which sculpt river basin ecosystems by eroding hillslopes and providing sediments to coastal areas. However, at the same time landslides are hazardous events for ...
    • A1. Modelling hysteresis in sediment transport and continuous distributions of eroded sediment 

      Sander, G.C.; Parlange, J.-Y.; Barry, D.A. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Sediment transport hysteresis occurs due to the different sediment fluxes for the same discharge on the rising and falling limb of the overland flow hydrograph. Experimental field data has shown that the common shapes of ...
    • A2. Effect of Rock Fragment Coverage on Soil Erosion 

      Jomaa, S.; Barry, D.A.; Brovelli, A.; Heng, B.C.P.; Sander, G.C.; Parlange, J.-Y. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Rain splash soil erosion in the presence of rock fragments was tested in laboratory flume experiments under controlled conditions. The surface area exposed to rain splash erosion was adjusted by placing rock fragments onto ...
    • A2. Influence of Antecedent Moisture Conditions on Inter-rill Soil Erosion 

      van Meerveld, Ilja (H.J.) (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Few studies have looked at the effects of antecedent soil moisture conditions on inter-rill soil erosion and in many models soil erodability parameters are considered constant, even though it is well known that the soil’s ...
    • A3. Effect of Antecedent Conditions on Soil Erosion Dynamics in a Laboratory Flume 

      Jomaa, S.; Barry, D.A.; Brovelli, A.; Heng, B.C.P.; Sander, G.C.; Parlange, J.-Y. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      The effect of antecedent conditions on precipitation-driven soil erosion dynamics through multiple rainfall events was investigated using a pair of 6-m • 1-m flumes with 2.2% slope. Three experiments denoted H6, H7-E2 and ...
    • A3. Selected Aspects of Hydraulic and Hydrologic Soil Erosion Processes 

      Römkens, M. J. M. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
    • A4. A Web-Based BMP Selection Tool to Minimize Pesticide Transport 

      Saia, Sheila M.; Brooks, Erin S.; Easton, Zach M.; Baffaut, Claire; Boll, Jan; Steenhuis, Tammo S. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Farmers rely on best management practices to reduce pesticide transport to surface waters and groundwater. There are a variety of tools available to help soil and water conservation managers optimize agricultural best ...
    • A4. Hydrologic Controls on Wind Erosion in Arid Landscapes 

      D’Odorico, Paolo (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Wind erosion is a dominant geomorphological process in arid landscapes. It contributes to the loss of soil resources and the emission of mineral dust, with major impacts on regional climate, biogeochemical cycles and human ...
    • A5. Identifying Susceptible Areas for Gully Erosion Using a Geospatial Analysis 

      Tebebu, Tigist Y; DeGloria, Stephen D.; Steenhuis, Tammo S (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Many studies have noted that gully erosion, the severe stage of soil erosion, has become one of the most challenging environmental problems restricting the long term productivity agriculture and water quality in developing ...
    • A6. A Simple Hillslope Erosion Model for Saturation Excess Runoff Tested in the Ethiopian Highlands 

      Tilahun, Seifu A.; Guzman, Christian D.; Engda, Tegenu A.; Zegeye, Assefa D.; Collick, Amy S; Rimmer, A.; Steenhuis, T. S. (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      A simple hillslope erosion model is developed and tested for watersheds ranging from 100 ha to 180,000 km2 in Ethiopian Highland. The erosion model is a simplification of Hairsine and Rose (1992) in which sediment ...
    • A7. Decision Making and Analysis Tools for Bio-surveillance and Sustainable Watershed Management 

      Safwat, Amr; Teklitz, Allen; Whiteaker, Tim; Nietch, Christopher; Maidment, David; Best, Elly P.H.; Yeghiazarian, Lilit (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      The biggest challenges in mitigating water contamination with chemical and biological agents are (1) identification of their sources, and (2) lack of real- or near-real time assessment of environmental processes. This ...
    • B1. Laplace - Boussinesq: 3-1. 

      van de Giesen, Nick; Steenhuis, Tammo S.; Parlange, Jean-Yves (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      In 1993, Jean-Yves Parlange developed a very generic solution for the Laplace equation in the archetypal drainage geometry of an aquifer on an impermeable layer between two parallel drains with linearized boundary conditions. ...
    • B1. Recession Slope Analysis Coefficients, Low Flows, Groundwater and Precipitation Responses for Climate Change Studies 

      Sharma, Asha N; Pereira, Vania; Walter, Michael Todd (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Recession slope analysis has often been used to estimate aquifer thickness, i.e. groundwater depth. Here we look at long term trends in the coefficients of this analysis for several large watersheds in areas potentially ...
    • B2. Modelling (Flash) Floods in a Dutch Lowland Catchment 

      Brauer, Claudia; Teuling, Ryan; Overeem, Aart; van der Velde, Ype; Hazenberg, Pieter; Warmerdam, Piet; Kloosterman, Peter; Uijlenhoet, Remko (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      On 26 August 2010 the eastern part of The Netherlands and the bordering part of Germany were struck by a series of heavy rainfall events. We investigated the unprecedented flash flood triggered by this exceptionally heavy ...
    • B2. The Isotopic Age of Runoff in Natural Flow Systems 

      Duffy, Christopher (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      This paper outlines a theory describing fundamental controls on the isotopic “age” of runoff from watersheds. In this context “age” is defined as the time since the water and environmental tracer entered the system as ...

      Telyakovskiy, Aleksey S (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      The Boussinesq equation describes water flows in unconfined groundwater aquifers under the Dupuit assumption that the equipotential lines are vertical, making the flow essentially horizontal. It is a nonlinear diffusion ...
