SEFS assistant professor Britt Johnson is an author on two recently published scientific papers.

The most recent was published in the Aug. 2020 issue of the Journal of Hydrology and is titled, “Paired air-water annual temperature patterns reveal hydrogeological controls on stream thermal regimes at watershed to continental scales.”

The study found that paired air-water annual signals are a promising tool for stream thermal regimes, and that air temperature adds critical information for water thermal regime classification. Read the abstract for the paper here.

The other paper was published in 2019 in the journal Soil Science. The paper, called “The Influence of Slash Pile Burning on Meadow and Upland Forest Soil Micronutrients in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, United States” looked at how prescribed burns effect nutrient cycling, especially the response of micronutrients in the soil.
