Supporting champions in river management
Published Online: May 05 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1445
River champions are humble and quiet leaders, they build and use social capital effectively and work and think across a range of temporal and spatial scales. We need river champions because they can help to build social connection and trust, making meaningful participation more effective and efficient. River champions can be supported if we reward the time they invest and prioritize social connection.

Sediment dynamics and implications for management: State of the science from long‐term research in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, USA
Published Online: Jun 21 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1454
Diverse best management practices (BMPs) are implemented across watersheds to reduce downstream sediment loading by addressing agricultural, urban, and streambank sources and sediment storage zones. A better understanding of sediment sources, transport, delivery, and impacts will help target these management actions.

A review of applications of fractional advection–dispersion equations for anomalous solute transport in surface and subsurface water
Published Online: May 11 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1448
A number of factors that can lead to non‐Fickian transport. The hyporheic zones, side pools, vegetation growth, fallen trees, and large stones in a river can trap contaminants and result in a heavy‐tailed breakthrough curve. The high permeability zones in an aquifer can lead to preference flow and to the early arrival of solutes.

Colloid transport through soil and other porous media under transient flow conditions—A review
Published Online: Apr 26 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1439
Colloid transport through a dual‐permeability system: (a) colloids transport through macropores; (b) during drainage the macropore empties first and colloids attach to the macropore‐walls; (c) colloids move with water to increasingly narrower‐pores and are filtered by the soil–matrix along the way; (d) during imbibition colloids move with water back into macropores.
