Rock moisture in the news and on the radio


Our multi-year study tracking rock moisture at the Eel River Critical Zone Observatory was recently published and was featured on various print news outlets and even, the radio!  The long-term monitoring was funded by the National Science Foundation Critical Zone Observatory Program and conducted at the University of California Angelo Coast Range Reserve.

We’re continuing to monitor rock moisture with old and new tools to understand how water storage in weathered bedrock impacts ecological processes and bedrock weathering. Stay tuned!
