Hydrologic Vulnerability of Sagebrush Steppe Following Pinyon and Juniper Encroachment
Abstract Woodland encroachment on United States rangelands has altered the structure and function of shrub steppe ecosystems. The potential community structure is one where trees dominate, shrub andExpand

Hydrologic Response to Mechanical Shredding in a Juniper Woodland
Abstract We investigated soil compaction and hydrologic responses from mechanically shredding Utah juniper (Juniperus ostesperma [Torr.] Little) to control fuels in a sagebrush/bunchgrass plantExpand

Snow distribution, melt and surface water inputs to the soil in the mountain rain–snow transition zone
Summary The timing, magnitude, and spatial distribution of snow cover and the resulting surface water inputs (SWI) are simulated at a small catchment located in the rain–snow transition zone ofExpand

Can wildfire serve as an ecohydrologic threshold‐reversal mechanism on juniper‐encroached shrublands
Woody plant encroachment on water-limited lands can induce a shift from biotic (plant)-controlled resource retention to abiotic (physical)-driven losses of critical soil resources. TheExpand

Ecosystem Water Availability in Juniper Versus Sagebrush Snow-Dominated Rangelands☆
ABSTRACT Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis Hook.) has greatly expanded in the past 150+years and now dominates over 3.6 million ha of rangeland in the Intermountain Western United States. TheExpand

Hydrologic and Erosion Responses of Sagebrush Steppe Following Juniper Encroachment, Wildfire, and Tree Cutting
Abstract Extensive woodland expansion in the Great Basin has generated concern regarding ecological impacts of tree encroachment on sagebrush rangelands and strategies for restoring sagebrush steppe.Expand

Contributing factors for drought in United States forest ecosystems under projected future climates and their uncertainty
Abstract Observations of increasing global forest die-off related to drought are leading to more questions about potential increases in drought occurrence, severity, and ecological consequence in theExpand

Trends and sensitivities of low streamflow extremes to discharge timing and magnitude in Pacific Northwest mountain streams
Path analyses of historical streamflow data from the Pacific Northwest indicate that the precipitation amount has been the dominant control on the magnitude of low streamflow extremes compared to theExpand

Modeling the isotopic evolution of snowpack and snowmelt: Testing a spatially distributed parsimonious approach
Abstract Use of stable water isotopes has become increasingly popular in quantifying water flow paths and travel times in hydrological systems using tracer‐aided modeling. In snow‐influencedExpand

Eleven Years of Mountain Weather, Snow, Soil Moisture and Streamflow Data from the Rain–Snow Transition Zone – the Johnston Draw Catchment, Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed and Critical Zone
Abstract. Detailed hydrometeorological data from the rain-to-snow transition zone in mountain regions are limited. As the climate warms, the transition from rain to snow is moving to higherExpand
