Toward catchment hydro‐biogeochemical theories
Published Online: Dec 03 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1495
To develop hydro‐biogeochemical theories, we will need to acknowledge the challenge of data scarcity in the era of “big data”, to expand measurements beyond disciplinary boundaries, stream channels, and common places, and to fuse process‐based and data‐driven modeling tools, all within the framework of hypothesis testing.

It's the product not the polymer: Rethinking plastic pollution
Published Online: Oct 22 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1490
Plastic alternatives are ubiquitous and persistent in the environment. This can was retrieved from the bed of a reservoir near the source of the River Trent in September 2018. Its use by date was November 2016.

Beaver: Nature's ecosystem engineers
Published Online: Nov 27 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1494
This article reviews the state‐of‐the‐art scientific understanding of the beaver as an ecosystem engineer. It summarizes how beaver impact: (a) ecosystem structure and geomorphology, (b) hydrology and water resources, (c) water quality, (d) freshwater ecology, and (e) humans and society.

The benefits and negative impacts of citizen science applications to water as experienced by participants and communities
Published Online: Oct 12 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1488
A substantial review of citizen science applications to water showed that benefits, and especially negative impacts, experienced by participants and communities are seldom researched. We describe the benefits and negative impacts that can occur to encourage their greater consideration when designing citizen science projects.

Advanced Reviews

A little relief: Ecological functions and autogenesis of wetland microtopography
Published Online: Dec 03 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1493
In wetlands, a little relief or microtopographic variation in the soil surface influences numerous hydrological and biogeochemical processes, creating strong feedbacks with ecological patterns, and functions that are important for management and conservation.

Applications of Google Earth Engine in fluvial geomorphology for detecting river channel change
Published Online: Dec 01 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1496
Cloud‐based computing, access to big geospatial data, and virtualization could revolutionize remote sensing applications in fluvial geomorphology. Google Earth Engine offers transformative potential for the large‐scale spatiotemporal quantification of river channel change, enabling deterministic science at scales defined by the user and determined by the phenomena of interest.

Estimation of coastal aquifer properties: A review of the tidal method based on theoretical solutions
Published Online: Nov 30 2020
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1498
A variety of theoretical models are currently available for estimating coastal aquifer properties using tide waves as boundary conditions. This article reviews the most popular models and analytical solutions that can be used as a theoretical basis for the tidal method, clarifies the limitations, and indicates topics for future research.
