Overviews

A review of groundwater in high mountain environments
Published Online: Oct 08 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1475
Conceptual model of high mountain hydrogeological processes. Water is stored below the ground surface in talus slopes, moraines, alluvial deposits, wetlands, and bedrock aquifers. Groundwater flow is impacted by geologic heterogeneity and structures, and permafrost as it drains to springs, mountain rivers, wetlands, or contributes to mountain‐block recharge, helping to sustain mountain streamflow or basin water resources, particularly during dry periods.

Water in war: Understanding the impacts of armed conflict on water resources and their management
Published Online: Aug 27 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1480
The scientific evidence synthesized in this review shows that research on the impacts of armed conflicts on water resources and their management focuses on the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Asia and Africa. Publications are often single case studies and do not consider insights from other parts of the world.

Glacio‐hydrological model calibration and evaluation
Published Online: Sep 22 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1483
Glacio‐hydrological models are used to estimate glacier melt contribution and analyze future changes due to climate change and glacier retreat. An essential step in the modeling process are the calibration and validation of the model, for which different strategies exist. Especially stepwise and multi‐data calibration are important when modeling glacierized catchments.

New horizons for dredging research: The ecology and politics of harbor deepening in the southeastern United States
Published Online: Oct 08 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1485
Harbor deepening projects in the southeastern United States illuminate a global phenomenon that has accelerated in recent decades: navigable rivers and coastal estuaries are being dredged to new depths as port authorities and governments compete to benefit from new generations of massive oceangoing ships (Base imagery sources: Esri, DigitalGlobe, GeoEye, i‐cubed, USDA FSA, USGS, AEX, Getmapping, Aerogrid, IGN, IGP, swisstopo, and the GIS User Community).
