ABSTRACT:
Hydrology, climatology, and biology interact over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Continuous interaction among climate, soils, landuse, and vegetation shape the hydrology and ecology of a landscape. Long-term measurements of such variables at various time and space scales provide a foundation for understanding ecosystem processes, and document changes in the local, regional, and global environments.
