This project will examine overall patterns of watershed and riparian function in East River Colorado and LA River, as modern paired watershed systems of different land use. Work will focus on fire ecohydrology and disturbance of these watersheds, and analyzing solute/nutrient flux, isotope hydrology.
A) Disturbances; we will focus on the combined wet weather and dry weather contributions and supply to the LA River and its tributaries, and how disturbances (e.g. wildfire, drought, atmospheric rivers) affect runoff, recharge, and water supply.
B) Functional Zonation; we will examine overall patterns of watershed and riparian function including solute/nutrient flux and isotope hydrology along the course of the LA River and its tributaries.
