Vadose Zone Journal outstanding paper award for our study on observed and simulated isotopic differences in mobile and bulk soil water
Our manuscript on "Measuring and Modeling Stable Isotopes of Mobile and Bulk Soil Water" was selected for the Outstanding Paper Award, 2020 by the Vadose Zone Journal Editorial Board. The "article was selected based on how it has advanced knowledge in the profession, the effectiveness of communication, methodology, originality, and impact". All ASA, CSSA, and SSSA awardees were announced in the latest CSA news that can be found here. I am personally very happy to see that our work has made some impact and was well received by the community. The presented study is a great example for a successful collaboration where data and model code have been shared openly to gain new understanding in subsurface hydrological processes. The work was done within the EU-funded VeWa project and you can find more publications and info here.
Special Issue in HESS on "Water, isotope and solute fluxes in the soil–plant–atmosphere interface: investigations from the canopy to the root zone"
We are welcoming contributions to a special issue in Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. The idea to this special issue arose out of successful conference sessions held at EGU and AGU. This special issue will bring together the vibrant ecohydrological community addressing a better understanding of hydrological processes taking place from the canopy to the root zone. Many of these dynamic interactions between vegetation and soil affecting water, isotope and solute fluxes are not yet well understood. The special issue should therefore further address open questions and new opportunities within the ecohydrological community regarding methodological developments such as the analysis of stable isotope, soil moisture, throughfall or solute dynamics. We keep the submission open for all submissions within its scope. The editors for this special issue are Natalie Orlowski, Matthias Sprenger, Josie Geris, Pilar Llorens, Lixin Wang, and Miriam Coenders-Gerrits. Please contact us in case you have questions regarding manuscript submissions.
