Community Resources to Advance Watershed Systems Science

Following are examples of Watershed Science community efforts focused on enabling innovation through community coordination.

  • Network of Watershed Research Testbeds
    ESS program supports a network of watershed testbeds within the contiguous United States where national laboratory, university and interagency partners work in interdisciplinary teams to address priority research objectives and to advance watershed system science for energy.
  • Worldwide Hydrobiogeochemical Observation Network for Dynamic River Systems (WHONDRS)
    A consortium of researchers and other interested parties that aims to understand the hydrologic, biogeochemical, and microbial impacts of sustained high-frequency water level fluctuations in river corridors from local to global scales. [website]
  • Mercury Aqueous Speciation Database (AQUA-MER)
    A database and toolkit for researchers working on environmental mercury geochemistry. AQUA-MER is useful for researchers who want to investigate mercury speciation in defined environments i.e., to which chemical elements and groups it will bind and in what proportions, given an input of concentrations of chemicals.
