Caption for July 2013 Agricultural Research magazine article, "Turning Trees Into Fighter Fuels." In Arizona, hydraulic engineer David Goodrich (right) and technician Jim Riley are working to improve modeling estimates of watershed-level rainfall runoff and erosion—information that will help guide decisions on where, and how many, juniper trees can be harvested without having an adverse effect on runoff and erosion.
Caption for March 2011 Agricultural Research magazine article, "ARS Scientists Strategize To Save a Desert River." Technician Jim Riley (left) and hydraulic engineer Dave Goodrich download water-level data from the Rostrin Basin, a flood detention pond in Sierra Vista, Arizona, which will aid in calculating the recharge rate to the ground-water aquifer.
