Anthropogenic changes to inland water nutrient cycles: sky to sea

Dr. Taylor Maavara
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 

Rivers are the great connectors of the freshwater cycle, providing essential services to humans and ecosystems, including drinking water, transportation channels, food security, waste assimilation, and water purification.

Deciphering spatio-temporal patterns and using reactive transport models to improve process and understanding 

Dr. Bhavna Arora, Energy Geosciences Division 
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 

Reactive transport models (RTMs) are essential tools to address a broad range of environmental problems such as acid mine drainage, radionuclide contamination, climate change and water resources management. The role of RTMs has been expanding in recent years to quantify processes from bedrock to canopy and from pore to watershed scales. However, this expanding role of RTMs brings significant scientific challenges, such as incorporating heterogeneity in models given that data are sparse, multi-sourced and convoluted. In addition, predicting future ecosystem response is problematic because different spatio-temporal factors impact system behavior and need to be represented adequately in models.
