2020 Darcy Lecture: Hydrology from the bottom up: how groundwater shapes the water cycle

This lecture by Prof. Reed Maxwell will explore the linkages between groundwater and the rest of the hydrologic cycle. It will discuss some fundamental relationships that describe groundwater's interconnections with land surface fluxes and how recent advances in our understanding these feedbacks can help us more holistically manage our watersheds.
