    The Four Quadrants from Coopersmith et al. [2012] pre-1980, and Post-1980

    (a) (top) The four quadrants from Coopersmith et al. [] pre-1980, (b) (bottom) The four quadrants, post-1980. Low seasonality and earlier precipitation peak (dark blue), low seasonality and later precipitation peak (light blue), higher seasonality and nonarid (yellow), higher seasonality and arid (red).

  • Dye Penetration into the Sand Bed Under Neutral, Losing, and Gaining Conditions

    Dye Penetration into the Sand Bed Under Neutral, Losing, and Gaining Conditions

    Time series photographs of dye penetration into the sand bed under neutral, losing, and gaining conditions. Flow was from left to right at an overlying water velocity of 12.3 cm s−1.

  • Wellington Catchments

    Wellington Catchments

    (a) Wellington catchment A, (b) Wellington catchment B, and (c) Wellington catchment C. The resolution of RGB images for Wellington catchments A and C is 20 cm. Resolution for catchment B is 50 cm.

  • A Typical Completed Pink Salmon Redd in South Prairie Creek

    A Typical Completed Pink Salmon Redd in South Prairie Creek

    (a) Schematic cross section showing redd building (after Burner []) and (b) plan-view image from our 2009 study showing a typical completed pink salmon redd in South Prairie Creek. Arrows show flow direction. (a) Females cut at the bed, inducing lift forces that excavate particles and create characteristic pit-and-tailspill topography. Periphyton on the undersides of particles in elevated positions in the tailspill provide clear evidence that female salmon have moved them there. The white shapes in the tailspill of the redd depicted in Figure b outline grains we sampled after marking their locations on the photo in the field. Redd boundaries in Figure b were readily identified based on absence of periphyton and pit-and tailspill topography. We marked them with weighted flagging tape (as shown in Figure b) for measurements of redd dimensions. Flag in middle of tailspill marks its crest.

  • Monthly Schematic Representation of Moisture Sink Regions for the Period 1980–2012

    Monthly Schematic Representation of Moisture Sink Regions for the Period 1980–2012

    Monthly schematic representation of moisture sink regions for the period 1980–2012. The sources of moisture (bottom maps) are those detected in Figure . Only negative values of E-P larger than −0.05 mm d−1 are plotted and shown in the same colors as the corresponding oceanic source regions. Overlapping continental regions are plotted using the appropriate shading mask. E-P fields are calculated by forward tracking from the defined moisture sources.

  • Patchy Evaporating Surface with Different Spacing for Pores within a Cluster and at its Periphery

    Patchy Evaporating Surface with Different Spacing for Pores within a Cluster and at its Periphery

    Patchy evaporating surface with different spacing for pores within a cluster and at its periphery. (a) Using Voronoi tessellation the dry region is assigned to the closest pore (blue—small spacing, red—large spacing), resulting in large spacing (or small local surface water contents) for pores at periphery and large water contents for pores within the cluster. (b) Definition of parameters used in the evaporation model formulated as superposition of evaporation of individual pores with cluster radius RC, areal fractions of clusters ΦC, and by assigning the entire cross-sectional area to clusters with circles of size RC + SC.

    An Adaptive Multiscale Approach for Modeling Two-phase Flow in Porous Media Including Capillary Pressure

    Example 1: Saturation distribution of (a) the fine-scale simulation and (b) the multiscale simulation at t=3×105 s; permeability field (1) (Figure ), pc=0.
