a r t i c l e i n f o Water resources and agricultural applications require the knowledge of evapotranspiration (ET) over a range of spatial and temporal scales. Due to paucity of surface based hydro-meteorological stations, the spatial resolution of ET estimates is fairly coarse and is not particularly suitable or reliable for hydrologic modeling, water(More)
The mining of oil sands in northern Alberta leaves behind large open pits, tailings, and overburden piles in which the surface and subsurface hydrology has been completely disrupted. Extensive reclamation work is required to reconstruct the entire landscape and reestablish the various elements of the hydrologic cycle. Syncrude Canada Ltd. has established a(More)
Diarrheal diseases remain a serious global public health threat, especially for those populations lacking access to safe water and sanitation infrastructure. Although association of several diarrheal diseases, e.g., cholera, shigellosis, etc., with climatic processes has been documented, the global human population remains at heightened risk of outbreak of(More)
West Nile virus (WNV), mosquito-borne and water-based disease, is increasingly a global threat to public health. Since its appearance in the northeastern United States in 1999, WNV has since been reported in several states in the continental United States. The objective of this study is to highlight role of hydroclimatic processes estimated through(More)
INTRODUCTION Cholera, an infectious diarrheal disease, has been shown to be associated with large scale hydroclimatic processes. The sudden and sporadic occurrence of epidemic cholera is linked with high mortality rates, in part, due to uncertainty in timing and location of outbreaks. Improved understanding of the relationship between pathogenic abundance(More)
