Monitoring and Modeling the Terrestrial System from Pores to Catchments

Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, 96(10):1765–1787.

Capsule Summary Observing and modeling the water and energy flow from soil pores to catchments and from the groundwater to the atmosphere via a strong interdisciplinary effort Most activities of mankind take place in the transition zone between four compartments of the terrestrial system: the unconfined aquifer including the unsaturated zone, surface water, vegetation, and atmosphere. Mass, momentum, and heat energy fluxes between these compartments drive their mutual state evolution. Improved understanding of the processes that drive these fluxes is important for climate projections, weather predictions, flood forecasting, water and soil resources management, agriculture, and water quality control. The different transport mechanisms and flow rates within the compartments result in complex patterns on different temporal and spatial scales, which makes predictions of the terrestrial system challenging for scientists and policymakers. The Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 32 (TR32) was formed in 2...
