Chirripó Hydrological Research Site: advancing stable isotope hydrology in the Central American Páramo
The Chirripó Hydrological Research Site (CHRS) is located within the Chirripó National Park, Costa Rica (between 3,100-3,820 m asl) whereby ~100 km2 are covered by Páramo, a high‐elevation tropical grassland ecosystem. A ...
Chirripo Hydrological Research Site: advancing stable isotope hydrology in the Central American Paramo
Tropical mountainous ecosystems are recognized as providers of valuable ecological and hydrological services (Viviroli et al, 2007). In Central America, the P aramo, a high-elevation tropical grassland ecosystem, extends ...
Headwaters drive streamflow and lowland tracer export in a large-scale humid tropical catchment
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2020)
Headwaters are generally assumed to contribute the majority of water to downstream users, but how much water, of what quality and where it is generated are rarely known in the humid tropics. Here, using monthly monitoring ...
Key hydrological processes in the Del Azul Creek basin, sub-humid Pampean Plain
(Elsevier B.V., 2021-02)
Groundwater plays an important role in the economic development of the Chaco-Pampean Plain (Argentina), where industry, agriculture and cattle farming are the main economic activities. The 66% of the country's population ...
A preliminary isotope-based evapotranspiration partitioningapproach for tropical Costa Rica
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2021-07)
Spatially and seasonally distributed information on transpiration (T) fluxes is limited in the tropics. Here, we applied a coupled isotope mass balance model to separate water fluxes of T and evapotranspiration (ET) from ...
Isotopic variability (δ18O, δ2 H and d-excess) during rainfall events of the north American monsoon across the Sonora River Basin, Mexico
(Elsevier Ltd, 2021)
The economic activities of the Sonora strongly depend on groundwater extraction, which is generally of recent meteoric origin. Understanding the hydrological functioning in this semi-arid region, located in northwestern Mexico, ...
