How Forest Structure Influences the Water Cycle

The article below, published in the EOS Earth and Space Science News by Kate Wheeling on October 15, 2019 highlights a research article from the Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences, which discusses the relationship between forest structure and the water cycle.

Remote Sensing of the Terrestrial Water Cycle

I have been keeping busy looking at recently published books by publishers (you can browse publisher websites from my homepage menu) and I recently came across this monograph entitled “Remote Sensing of the Terrestrial Water Cycle” edited by Venkat Lakshmi et al..

This book is a product of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Chapman Conference, which was held in February 2012. Chapman conferences are usually “small, topical meetings designed to permit in-depth exploration of specialized subjects in a manner not possible at large meetings” (AGU, 2015).

As such the following information can be found in this monograph:

-An in-depth discussion of the global water cycle
– Approaches to various problems in climate, weather, hydrology, and agriculture
– Applications of satellite remote sensing in measuring precipitation, surface water, snow, soil moisture, groundwater, modeling, and data assimilation
– A description of the use of satellite data for accurately estimating and monitoring the components of the hydrological cycle
– Discussion of the measurement of multiple geophysical variables and properties over different landscapes on a temporal and a regional scale.

Information in this text can be found under the main topics of precipitation, evapotranspiration, surface water, groundwater, data and modeling, soil moisture and snow.

Due to the fact that this document discusses snow, a phenomenon that does not occur in our country, I know that persons may not see it as suitable, however, since it discusses the above topics, I see it as a very comprehensive text. I guess I will do more research and see whether it is a good fit for the agency.

It should be noted that this text is is a valuable resource for students, as well as, research professionals in the hydrology, ecology, atmospheric sciences, geography, and geological sciences communities.
