Hydrometric and hydrochemical runoff characterization and modeling across multiple land covers in Panama

Research Question

Panama Canal operations depend entirely on secure freshwater supplies to its reservoirs, however this critical natural resource's flow is sensitive to land management decisions. To better manage water resources, hydrological investigations are needed to quantify how runoff and groundwater supplies differ between different tropical land covers.
