Laura Rico, University of California - Irvine The cause? Increased high-elevation plant growth fueled by climate warming Freshwater runoff from the Sierra Nevada may decrease by as much as one-quarter by 2100 due to climate warming on the high slopes, according to scientists at UC Irvine and UC Merced.

Endorheic Basin
2013-04-18 22:40:14

An endorheic basin, from the Ancient Greek endon, meaning “within” and rhein, meaning “to flow”, is a closed drainage basin that holds onto water and does not allow outflow to other external bodies of water, such as oceans or rivers, but joins instead into lakes or swamps, seasonal or permanent, that equilibrate via evaporation. Basins such as these might also be referred to as closed or terminal basin or as internal drainage systems. Usually, water that has built up in a drainage...

A drainage divide, water divide, divide, or watershed is the line that separates neighboring drainage basins. In flat country the divide may be invisible (just a notional line on the ground either side of which water starts its journey to different waterways). While, in hilly country, the divide lies along peaks and ridges. Drainage divides are important geographical, and sometimes political boundaries. Roads and railways often follow divides to minimize slopes and marshes and rivers....

The water cycle (or hydrologic cycle) describes the continuous movement of water above, below, and on the planet. Since the water cycle is in fact a "cycle", there is no beginning or end. Water exists in three states: liquid, vapor, and ice. Although the balance of water on our planet is fairly constant, individual water molecules may come and go. The water cycle is driven by the sun. The sun heats the oceans and allows water to evaporate into the air. The sun also heats snow and ice which...
