Abstract: Mining, smelting, and use of tungsten (W) have increased rapidly in the past few decades, but recently the US EPA declared this element an “emerging contaminant of concern,” because it is likely a carcinogen. Despite the health concerns, remarkably little research has yet addressed the environmental transport and fate of tungsten. As dissolved tungsten ...

Abstract: High-elevation catchments are highly dynamic systems which are undergoing rapid hydrological changes. Seasonally, headwaters are responsible for the transport of large volumes of runoff and sediment (fine and coarse) to the downstream channel network, which tend to adjust to the upstream-imposed liquid and solid fluxes. Predicting how mountain rivers will change under different future ... Read more about "EESS Special talk on "Sediment Supply: The Underrated Ruler in Bedload Transport""

During the last decade, many scientists developed and deployed ‘’smart- pebbles’’ in fluvial (and other rapidly changing environments) in an attempt to monitor sediment dynamics. In parallel, Inertial Measurements Units (IMUs) have been tested in laboratory experiments focusing mainly on fluvial single grain entrainments and sort-term motions (simulating either costal or river hydrodynamics). Despite the ... Read more about "What smart pebbles can and cannot do: A discussion on the common notions regarding IMU sensors and the prospect of using them in (fluvial) geomorphological research."
