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 ...
Mapping the base of the Cambrian aquifer through geophysical modeling of Precambrian topography, southern Wisconsin
This project will address uncertainty in the topography and depth to the Precambrian basement that is the base of Wisconsin’s Cambrian sandstone aquifer. Basement topography exerts strong co
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...
