  • Challenge 3: Hydrology

    The water of Hubbard Brook flows downstream into the larger Pemigewasset River watershed. 


    If we zoom out beyond the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, we see that the Hubbard Brook watershed is nested within the larger Pemigewasset River watershed...

    …which is within the greater Merrimack River watershed, and this drains into the Atlantic Ocean.  

    Likewise, if we zoom in on the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, we see that smaller streams flow into the mainstem of Hubbard Brook and those small watersheds are nested within the Hubbard Brook watershed. 

    Scientists here aim to measure all the water entering and leaving nine of these small watersheds.


    What word describes the balancing of water gains and losses?
