Using Time-lapse Geophysics to Monitor Hill Slope Hydrologic Processes (Andrew Parsekian and students)

This project uses geophysics to characterize snowmelt driven hydraulic processes and interactions with conifers on a steep sub-alpine hill slope in the Medicine Bow National Forest. Time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), seismic refraction, and temperature profile time- series reveal spatial and temporal patterns of soil moisture from daily to seasonal scales  in this snowmelt-driven hill slope. This video details the installation process of the sensors.
