Seminar: Groundwater Dynamics in Headwater Regions under a Changing Climate

27 May 2016

Groundwater systems receive significant recharge in high-altitude headwater regions. Seasonal and longer term variations in surface temperature and precipitation are expected under a changing climate, which could substantially impact groundwater recharge and subsequently groundwater storage and discharge to surface waters downstream. This presentation by Dr. Shemin Ge from the University of Colorado-Boulder addresses this question as it relates to groundwater flow in headwater regions.
