... in the process to remove the largest remaining dam on the Cuyahoga River. The 60-foot-tall Gorge Dam in Cuyahoga Falls once powered trolley cars in Akron. The park's head of natural resources management, Mike Johnson, says the $70,000 hydrology study will model the effect of a free-flowing river.

Although he's in the geography department, Ficklin is a physical scientist and much of his research focuses on how climate changes affect the hydrologic cycle, watershed hydrology, surface water, groundwater and water quality modeling and drought modeling assessment. "Water is important for a lot of ...
He has been the lead soil scientist on a team that is conceptualizing a new approach to addressing broad-scale questions about how plants, soils, hydrology and climate interact.

Pressure from the 600,000 inhabitants in Utah Lake's watershed has taken a serious toll on its hydrology, ecology and overall health. Perhaps just as troubling is the declining symbolic health of Utah Lake. What Utah Lake means to us is changing, and its status as a defining natural landmark appears to be ...
Since the 1990s, efforts to restore the hydrology and ecology of Utah Lake have made real progress. Most invasive carp have been removed, the native June sucker are recovering and the sustaining water flow and deltas of the Provo and Spanish Fork rivers are being restored.
