WaDE: Watershed Dynamics and Evolution

Watersheds such as the Tennessee River Basin are changing rapidly because of human impacts on the environment including changes in the way we use land. These changes can alter water storage and the impact of rainfall runoff at a time when rain events are becoming more frequent and intense. The Watershed Dynamics and Evolution project aims to better predict the consequences of intense precipitation and changes in land use on how watersheds function.
