Read recent peer-reviewed publications by Texas Water Resources Institute and Texas A&M AgriLife scientists:

Groundwater management in the borderlands of Mexico and Texas: Rosario Sanchez, Ph.D., TWRI, and Gabriel Eckstein, Texas A&M University School of Law, examine stakeholders' perspectives on borderland groundwater through 44 surveys and personal interviews, analyzing local views on groundwater governance and paths forward.

Moving from measurement to governance of shared groundwater resources: The inaugural issue of Nature Water included Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientists co-authoring a Perspective article on democratizing groundwater governance to sustain aquifer-dependent communities.

Catch up on water-related research news from universities around Texas:

Looking for answers to climate-related challenges: Texas Tech University researchers will use a NASA grant to observe West Texas precipitation and other weather events.

Hurricane Harvey more than doubled the acidity of Texas’ Galveston Bay, threatening oyster reefs: Texas A&M University researchers show that Hurricane Harvey rainfall resulted in Galveston Bay waters two to four times more acidic than normal for at least three weeks after the storm.

Urban gardens are good for ecosystems and humans: Scientists at the University of Texas examined impacts of urban farms on biodiversity, local ecosystems and the well-being of humans.
