    The Tizinafu watershed has a complex mountainous terrain in the western Kunlun Mountains; little study has been done on the spatial and temporal characteristics of snow cover in the region. Daily snow cover data of 10 ...
  • Sheet, stream and shelf flow as progressice ice-bed uncoupling: Byrd Glacier, Antarctica and Jakobshavn Isbrae, Greenland

    The first-order control of ice thickness and height above sea level is linked to the decreasing strength of ice-bed coupling along flowlines from an interior ice divide to the calving front of an ice shelf. Uncoupling ...
  • Viability of karezes (ancient water supply systems in Afghanistan) in a changing world 

    Macpherson, G.L.; Johnson, William C.; Liu, Huan (SpringerOpen, 2015-09-09)
    The Afghanistan population living far from rivers relies upon groundwater delivered from karezes (sub-horizontal tunnels). Karezes exploit unconfined groundwater in alluvial fans recharged largely by snowmelt from the Hindu ...
  • Investigation of Urban Air Temperature and Humidity Patterns during Extreme Heat Conditions Using Satellite-Derived Data 

    Hu, Leiqui; Monaghan, Andrew J.; Brunsell, Nathaniel A. (American Meteorological Society, 2015-11)
    Extreme heat is a leading cause of weather-related human mortality. The urban heat island (UHI) can magnify heat exposure in metropolitan areas. This study investigates the ability of a new MODIS-retrieved near-surface air ...
