Spatially distributed tracer‐aided modelling to explore water and isotope transport, storage and mixing in a pristine, humid tropical catchment
Rapidly transforming headwater catchments in the humid tropics provide important resources for drinking water, irrigation, hydropower, and ecosystem connectivity. However, such resources for downstream use remain unstudied. ...
Tracing Water Sources and Fluxes in a Dynamic Tropical Environment: From Observations to Modeling
Tropical regions cover approximately 36% of the Earth’s landmass. These regions are home to 40% of the world’s population, which is projected to increase to over 50% by 2030 under a remarkable climate variability scenario ...
Headwaters drive streamflow and lowland tracer export in a large‐scale humid tropical catchment
Headwaters are generally assumed to contribute the majority of water to downstream users, but how much water, of what quality and where it is generated are rarely known in the humid tropics. Here, using monthly monitoring ...
Modelling non‐stationary water ages in a tropical rainforest: A preliminary spatially distributed assessment
Pristine tropical forests play a critical role in regional and global climate systems. For a better understanding of the eco-hydrology of tropical “evergreen” vegetation, it is essential to know the partitioning of water ...
Member and Bayesian mixing models consistently indicate near‐surface flowpath dominance in a pristine humid tropical rainforest
The impacts of forest conversion on runoff generation in the tropics have received much interest, but scientific progress is still hampered by challenging fieldwork conditions and limited knowledge about runoff mechanisms. ...
Projected climate change impacts on tropical life zones in Costa Rica. Progress in Physical Geography: Earth and Environment
Efforts to protect tropical ecosystems aim at implementing biological corridors across the national territory of Costa Rica. However, potential near-future climate change challenges the effectiveness of such conservation ...
