Storage Dynamics Across Scales

Session ID#: 23898

Session Description:
Terrestrial water storage is the first-order state of a river basin serving as the link between incoming water from precipitation and its release as runoff or evapotranspiration. Basin storage can be highly sensitive to changes in climate, land use/cover change and anthropogenic activity, further affecting the behavior of runoff and evapotranspiration. Current challenges in storage studies include adequate measurements, modelling and thorough theoretical understanding of rainfall-storage-release interactions. The objective of this session is to create the proper venue for modelers, data analysts and field scientists to exchange ideas and experiences across scales, from global to hillslope/field. The session welcomes contributions on monitoring, modeling and hypothesis testing on the following topics: a) assessing past, present and future projections in basin storage, b) modeling of storage effects on the partition of precipitation, c) theoretical developments on storage and runoff sensitivity, d) exploring the interaction and feedbacks between anthropogenic activity and storage dynamics.
