Water, Energy, and Biogeochemical Budgets (WEBB)
Why is this research important?
Since its inception, the objective of the WEBB project has been to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research to improve understanding of processes controlling exchange of water, energy, and solutes among atmospheric, terrestrial, and aquatic environments. The WEBB program uses the "small watershed approach", which takes advantage of well-defined hydrologic inputs and outputs and well-quantified basin characteristics of small watersheds to develop the critical link between plot-scale studies and large regional surveys and monitoring programs. This link then supports the effort to inform the public, government and land managers on the issues facing water supplies and provides them with the specifics needed to perform the needed action.
