The projects listed below include bibliographic information for publications after 1995. Information for 1994 and earlier years are available in a series of published annual reports. The last such report published is:
Ecology: Investigate biologic and microbiologic processes that affect and are affected by the quality of water and evaluate environmental factors that determine the ecology and biogeochemistry of surface water and ground water resources.
Geomorphology and Sediment Transport: Understand stream-channel morphology and erosional processes that govern the source, mobility, and deposition of sediment.
Ground-Water Chemistry: Investigate inorganic, organic, and biochemical reactions affecting water quality in relation to mineralogic, geochemical, and hydrologic conditions in the ground-water environment.
Ground-Water Hydrology: Understand processes that control movement and availability of subsurface water, its transport of dissolved substances, microbes, particulates and other fluid phases, and its interactions with the geological environment.
Surface-Water Chemistry: Assess natural and contaminant chemicals in water and sediment, and study fundamental chemical and biochemical processes that affect the movement of organic systems.
Surface-Water Hydrology: Quantify, understand, and model the physical processes controlling the distribution and quality of the Nation's surface-water resources.
