Abstract Study region Oil palm cultivation has rapidly expanded worldwide due to demands for food oils and the potential for liquid fuel production. However, there is a scarcity of research on the hydrologic impacts of oil palm plantations at a watershed scale, especially in Latin America. We focus on a watershed typical of intensive palm oil production in Tabasco, Mexico. Study focus A Soil and Water Assessment Tool model was calibrated to simulate long-term streamflow in the study watershed. T...

Abstract. Climate change and energy security promotes using renewable sources of energy such as biofuels. High woody biomass production achieved from short rotation intensive plantations is an appealing strategy that is growing in many parts of the world. However, broad expansion of bioenergy feedstock production may have significant environmental consequences. This study investigates the watershed-scale hydrological impacts of eucalyptus plantations for energy production in a humid subtropical ...

Coarse temporal (i.e., annual) and spatial (i.e., watershed) scales camouflage water stress associated with withdrawals from surface water and groundwater sources. To address this “curse of scale”, we developed a framework to characterize water stress at different time scales and at fine spatial scales that have not been explored before. Our framework incorporates surface water–groundwater interactions by accounting for spatially cumulative consumptive and nonconsumptive use impacts and associat...

ABSTRACTThis study aims to develop pavement performance zones specifically for flexible pavement design for the state of Michigan. Different from climate zones, pavement performance zones are regions with overall homogeneous pavement distresses, and they can make a more reliable guide for the pavement design in a region. Air temperature, pavement surface temperature, and pavement distress predicted from mechanistic-empirical design were utilized to create the pavement performance zones. In detai...
