Research Theme: Terrestrial Hydrosphere

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Terrestrial Hydrosphere
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

Water is central to life on land, and this research covers the properties, processes, chemistry, and quality that pertains to it in whatever form it takes: solid, liquid, or gaseous; surface water or groundwater.
