Portable Experimental Hillslope


Paper Published in Hydrological Processes

Recently published in Hydrological Processes, "A portable experimental hillslope for frozen-ground studies" by Dyan L. Pratt and Jeffrey J. McDonnell can be found here.

This paper showcases a new freezable tilting hillslope physical model for hydrological system testing under a variety of climate conditions with the ability to perform multipe freeze/thaw cycles. The portable exerimental hillslope has high potential for frozen-ground studies investigating processes related to preferential flow development under freeze-thaw cycles, permafrost thaw impacts on flow and transport, temperature induced viscosity effects on slope-scale hydraulic conductivity and moisture release conditions.
