The Republican River, shared by three states, Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas, has yielded de- pleted streamflow at the Nebraska-Kansas border for about 20 years when compared to values preceding 1970. Based on model results estimating the average annual water balance of the basin, it is concluded that the observed decline in runoff cannot be explained by changes in climatic variables over the area; rather, it is the result of the combined effects of the following human activities: crop… Expand
INTEGRATED GROUNDWATER/SURFACE WATER MODEL FOR THE LOWER REPUBLICAN RIVER BASIN, KANSAS: A PROGRESS REPORT
The Republican River Basin encompasses approximately 24,540 square miles of eastern Colorado, southern Nebraska, and northern Kansas that drain to the Republican River above the gaging station atExpand
Comment on 'Evaluation of the impact of groundwater irrigation on streamflow in Nebraska' by Fujian Wen and Xunhong Chen
The authors perform trend analysis of climatic and discharge data of Nebraska’s major streams. They conclude that the only watershed where a significant and systematic decline in streamflow can beExpand
Decreased Runoff Response to Precipitation, Little Missouri River Basin, Northern Great Plains, USA
High variability in precipitation and streamflow in the semiarid northern Great Plains causes large uncertainty in water availability. This uncertainty is compounded by potential effects of futureExpand
ANALYTICAL MODELING OF IRRIGATION AND LAND USE EFFECTS ON STREAMFLOW IN SEMI-ARID CONDITIONS: FRENCHMAN CREEK, NEBRASKA
Summary Availability and uncertainty in input data are the primary constraints of groundwater modeling. Analytical models assimilate the key and important data, but capture the major traits of theExpand
Geochemical Recharge Estimation and the Effects of a Declining Water Table
The High Plains aquifer (HPA) is one of the largest aquifers in the world and is critical for agricultural production in the United States. In Kansas, irrigation using the HPA has resulted in steepExpand
Anthropogenic Hydrological Cycle Disturbance at a Regional Scale: State-Wide Evapotranspiration Trends (1979-2015) Across Nebraska, USA
Abstract Trends in monthly evapotranspiration (ET) rates across Nebraska, the most intensely irrigated state within the US, were calculated by the calibration-free version of the nonlinearExpand
Seasonal energy and water balance of a Phragmites australis-dominated wetland in the Republican River basin of south-central Nebraska (USA)
Summary Climate and vegetation strongly influence the water cycle on local to regional scales. A change in the surface energy and water balance, especially in dry climatic regions, can have aExpand
Analyzing streamflow changes: irrigation-enhanced interaction between aquifer and streamflow in the Republican River basin
Groundwater-fed irrigation has altered surface and groundwater interactions in the Republic River basin (RRB) in the midwestern United States, where agriculture heavily depends on irrigation. TheExpand
Separation of the impacts of climate change and human activity on runoff variations
Abstract A practical approach to separate the impact of the processes of climate change (CC) and human activities (HA) on streamflow is presented. A non-parametric Mann-Kendall-Sneyers test, combinedExpand
