Overview

Streams around the world flow toward the sea in floodplains. All along this transit, there is exchange of water between the stream itself and the surrounding sediments which form the floodplain. Many chemical, biological, and geological processes occur when water moves back and forth between streams and these flood plain sediments. Streams and Groundwaters focuses on the consequences of water flow between streams, their underlying sediments, and surrounding landscapes. Certain to appeal to anyone interested in stream ecology, the management of stream ecosystems, or landscape ecology, this volume should become a oft-opened reference.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Details interactions between stream drainage basins and their underlying sediments, including the discharge of water from adjacent soil and bedrock environments. Sections examine the hydrology and physical structure of streams, biogeochemistry, and organismal ecology, with chapters on stream chemistry and riparian zones, surface and subsurface dissolved organic carbon, subsurface macrofauna, and microbial communities in hyporheic sediments. Jones teaches biological sciences at the University of Nevada. Mulholland works in the environmental sciences division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Annotation c.

Meet the Author

Jeremy B. Jones, Jr. studies land-water interactions, how processes occurring in terrestrial ecosystems impacts the movement of carbon and nutrients into streams, and how nutrients are used within stream ecosystems. His research has a particular focus in northern environments where climate change is thawing permafrost resulting in the release of carbon and nutrients from previously frozen soils, and altering the hydrologic connections between watersheds and streams. A central theme to this research is coupling between climate change, watershed and stream hydrology, and ecology.
