A 10 per cent increase in global land evapotranspiration from 2003 to 2019

Nature | May 26th, 2021


Accurate quantification of global land evapotranspiration is necessary for understanding variability in the global water cycle, which is expected to intensify und

Emerging trends in global freshwater availability

Nature | May 17th, 2018


Freshwater availability is changing worldwide. Here we quantify 34 trends in terrestrial water storage observed by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) sat

GRACE Groundwater Drought Index: Evaluation of California Central Valley groundwater drought

Remote Sensing of Environment | July 3rd, 2017


Quantitative approaches to assess the complexity of groundwater drought are hindered by the lack of direct observations of groundwater over space and time. Here,

Post-Drought Groundwater Storage Recovery in California's Central Valley

American Geophysical Union (AGU) | October 5th, 2021


California's Central Valley has experienced chronic groundwater depletion over the past few decades, the rate of which was amplified by droughts in 2007–2009 and 2012

Projecting groundwater storage changes in California’s Central Valley

Nature | August 27th, 2018


Accurate and detailed knowledge of California’s groundwater is of paramount importance for statewide water resources planning and management, and to sustain a

Time-varying land subsidence detected by radar altimetry: California, Taiwan and north China

Nature | June 21st, 2016


Contemporary applications of radar altimetry include sea-level rise, ocean circulation, marine gravity, and icesheet elevation change. Unlike InSAR and GNSS, which are wi

Using Sentinel‐1 and GRACE satellite data to monitor the hydrological variations within the Tulare Basin, California

Nature Scientific Reports | March 9th, 2022


Subsidence induced by groundwater depletion is a grave problem in many regions around the world, leading to a permanent loss of groundwater storage within an aquifer and
