The impact of dissolved organic matter composition on the formation of disinfection by-products in groundwater
Naturally occurring dissolved organic matter (DOM) poses a risk to human health when it reacts with disinfectants (e.g., chlorine) to form harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs) during drin...
Dynamics of Arsenic concentration and speciation in Wisconsin private drinking water wells
As a naturally occurring element, Arsenic (As) in drinking water can cause skin, bladder, lung, liver, colon, and kidney cancer as well as various other health issues such as blood vessel da...
Improving water and nitrogen use efficiency under changing weather variability in the Central Sands
Wisconsin Central Sands (WCS) potato and vegetable producers are facing increasing pressure to adopt farming practices – specifically irrigation and nitrogen (N) management – to minimize the
Anthropogenically driven changes to the metagenome of a shallow groundwater and its effect on aquifer reactivity
Microorganisms are endemic to subsurface environments, and it is accepted that they drive most geochemical reactions within aquifer systems. This is true for basic geochemical reactions that...
New proxy-based hydrological reconstructions over the past five centuries in southwest Wisconsin
Effective water resource management for the present and future requires a long-term temporal perspective on the variability of past water resources. Instrumental records are insufficient to ...
Historic changes in groundwater use by trees in Wisconsin due to high-capacity groundwater pumping and climate variability
Depletion of groundwater resources is a global scale problem. The availability of groundwater resources are changing due to compounding drivers including climate-induced recharge variability...
Linking groundwater and nutrients to monitor fen ecosystems using airborne imaging spectroscopy
Fens are unique and often isolated ecosystems of high conservation value in Wisconsin because they provide habitat for many rare plant and animal species. Their identity is inextricably link...
