Hydrology & biogeochemistry of mountain basins
Mountain hydrology & biogeochemistry

What's new!!

With Roger Bales' move to UC Merced in 2003, his research group is undertaking a new projects on the hydrology and biogeochemistry of seasonally snow-covered catchments. The Sierra Nevada is close at hand, and there are excellent opportunities for field research, modeling of snow and watershed processes, and remote sensing.
