Groundwater Recharge Investigations on the Nueces River, TX

Rempe Group member Caroline Hackett investigates the role of alluvium deposits in the process of groundwater recharge from the Nueces River to the underlying Trinity and Edwards Aquifers in south-west Texas. Using stream discharge gain-loss surveys, dye tracer testing, geophysical surveys, and water chemistry measurements, we study the storage capacity and transit times of surface…

Rempe Group Takes Over New Orleans (AGU 2017)

The American Geophysical Union 2017 Annual Meeting in New Orleans was a whirlwind. There were many posters from Rempe Group members and collaborators, in between many po’boys and beignets!      D. Dralle, W.J. Hahm, D.M. Rempe, N. Karst, S.E. Thompson, W.E. Dietrich, 2017, Identifying the Dynamic Catchment Storage That Does Not Drive Runoff,American Geophysical Union…

Rempe Group at GSA 2017, Seattle

The Rempe Group had a strong showing at the 2017 Geological Society of America (GSA) Annual Meeting in Seattle! Dr. Rempe and Alison presented results of their field work at the Eel River site in a session titled The Critical Zone as Heterogeneous Media: Implications for Physical, Chemical, and Biological Processes.  Neera and Caroline presented their research…

Water Monitoring Installations at Sagehorn Ranch

P. Southard The most recent trip to the Eel River Critical Zone Observatory provided the Rempe Research Group with an opportunity to aid UC Berkeley collaborators with the installation of new equipment for hydrological monitoring at Sagehorn Ranch.  UC Berkeley post-doc David Dralle and Ph.D. student Jesse Hahm first installed a flume in a gully feeding…

Sampling with an audience

September 2017 A. Tune One of the Rempe Research Group field sites, the Eel River CZO, had a number of visitors this September to view the collaborative research being done at field sites within the Angelo Coast Range Reserve. The group included researchers from the Critical Zone Observatory Network, the National Science Foundation, and other universities. ERCZO PIs…

Star-gazing and well-logging

Star-gazing and well-logging

September 2017 L. Schmidt In some places, thin soils mean that many plants must take root in in the fractures of shallow bedrock. Compared to soils—which are comparatively easy to access and measure—the moisture dynamics of near-surface bedrock are poorly understood. This means that we don’t understand how plants rooted in bedrock are supported by bedrock. For instance, how do plants…

We study how the evolution of the near-surface environment drives hydrologic and ecologic processes.  We use a diverse set of hydrological and geophysical field techniques to probe the interior of mountainous landscapes to understand how surface and subsurface processes influence water resources to vegetation, rivers, and the atmosphere.
