DSSS: The Soil is Not Enough: the Ecohydrologic Consequences of Critical Zone Evolution

November 3 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Abstract Channel incision into landscapes underlain by bedrock creates a network of channels bordered by hillslopes. These hillslopes are typically conceived of as being mantled by a conductive, moisture-retaining soil overlying a poorly conductive bedrock. This soil moisture is exploited by plants, creating a dynamic link between atmospheric processes and evapotranspiration. Here I report the results of over thirty years of hydrologic field investigations that shows that weathering of the underlying bedrock increases porosity and conductivity, leading to significant hydrologic…
