Want to Understand Drought? Follow the Water!

With support from the National Science Foundation, civil engineer Chris Duffy and his team at Penn State are tracking rainfall, where it flows, how much is absorbed by plants and soil, how water turns rock into soil, where soil builds up and where it erodes, and how the water flows into rivers, streams and underground aquifers.  credit:  NSF
