Spatial heterogeneity in the response of winter wheat yield to meteorological dryness/wetness variations in Henan province, China (2024)
Journal Article
Li, C., Gu, Y., Xu, H., Huang, J., Liu, B., Chun, K., & Octavianti, T. (2024). Spatial heterogeneity in the response of winter wheat yield to meteorological dryness/wetness variations in Henan province, China. Agronomy, 14(4), 817. https://doi.org/10.3390/agronomy14040817

Knowledge of the responses of winter wheat yield to meteorological dryness/wetness variations is crucial for reducing yield losses in Henan province, China’s largest winter wheat production region, under the background of climate change. Data on clim... Read More about Spatial heterogeneity in the response of winter wheat yield to meteorological dryness/wetness variations in Henan province, China.

The IAHS Science for Solutions decade, with Hydrology Engaging Local People IN a Global world (HELPING) (2024)
Journal Article
Arheimer, B., Cudennec, C., Castellarin, A., Grimaldi, S., Heal, K., Lupton, C., …leaders, W. (in press). The IAHS Science for Solutions decade, with Hydrology Engaging Local People IN a Global world (HELPING). Hydrological Sciences Journal, https://doi.org/10.1080/02626667.2024.2355202

The new scientific decade (2023-2032) of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) aims at searching for sustainable solutions to undesired water conditions - may it be too little, too much or too polluted. Many of the current iss... Read More about The IAHS Science for Solutions decade, with Hydrology Engaging Local People IN a Global world (HELPING).

Dynamic hydrological niche segregation: How plants compete for water in a semi-arid ecosystem (2024)
Journal Article
Zhao, Y., Wang, L., Chun, K., Ziegler, A., & Evaristo, J. (2024). Dynamic hydrological niche segregation: How plants compete for water in a semi-arid ecosystem. Journal of Hydrology, 630, Article 130677. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2024.130677

Hydrological niche segregation (HNS), specifically the variation in root water uptake depth among coexisting species, is an understudied area of research. This is especially the case in semi-arid ecosystems, such as China's Loess Plateau (CLP), where...

The nature and extent of bomb tritium remaining in deep vadose zone: A synthesis and prognosis (2024)
Journal Article
Huang, Y., Evaristo, J., Li, Z., Chun, K., Sutanudjaja, E. H., Cardenas, M. B., …van Genuchten, M. T. (in press). The nature and extent of bomb tritium remaining in deep vadose zone: A synthesis and prognosis. Vadose Zone Journal, https://doi.org/10.1002/vzj2.20304

Tritium present in deep vadose zones is a useful tracer for estimating groundwater recharge, but its full utility is constrained by not knowing where and for how long the tritium tracing method remains applicable. We obtained 44 tritium profiles from... Read More about The nature and extent of bomb tritium remaining in deep vadose zone: A synthesis and prognosis.

Application of multiple stable isotopes to aid identification of the origin of regional and organic animal products in Hesse, Germany (2023)
Journal Article
Gatzert, X., Chun, K. P., Hermanowski, R., Mäder, R., Breuer, L., Gattinger, A., & Orlowski, N. (2023). Application of multiple stable isotopes to aid identification of the origin of regional and organic animal products in Hesse, Germany. Isotopes in Environmental and Health Studies, 59(4-6), 490-510. https://doi.org/10.1080/10256016.2023.2273941

There is an increasing global demand for regional and organic produce. However, the growth of these markets depends on consumers’ trust. Thus, novel methods must be developed to aid the verification of the origin of produce. We built on our previous...

A review of the performance of CHIRPS and future research directions in hydro-climatic studies (2023)
Journal Article
Du, H., Tan, M. L., Zhang, F., Chun, K., Li, L., & Humayun Kabir, M. (in press). A review of the performance of CHIRPS and future research directions in hydro-climatic studies. Theoretical and Applied Climatology,

Long-term gridded precipitation products (GPPs) are crucial for climatology and hydrological research to overcome the limitations of gauge observations. Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station data (CHIRPS) provides long-term daily...
