The Southern Great Plains conservation region (Region 17*) encompasses a large area extending from southeastern Wyoming and west-central Nebraska, south through eastern Colorado and west-central Kansas and Oklahoma, to eastern New Mexico and west-central Texas. Most of the region once consisted of semi-arid prairie interrupted by riparian corridors along major rivers (e.g., Platte River), . “As a scientist, Loren Smith has made tremendous contributions to our understanding of playa ecology. Through Playas of the Great Plains he makes a further contribution by helping a wider audience understand the uniqueness and importance of these signature features of the Southern Great Plains.” Great Plains Research “This is a very significant contribution to the field of wetland ecology.
In this study, data regarding playa inundation, depth to groundwater, precipitation and land cover from to were collected and analyzed to ascertain associations between these characteristics for four study areas on the Texas High plains. Each area cove–70, ha.

1 High Plains Underground. Hydrologic budgets for depressional wetlands require estimates of runoff from watersheds. In the Southern High Plains, where there is little elevation relief, ground surveys provide accurate watershed estimates but are time-consuming and costly.
Estimates can be derived at lower cost from DEMs (Digital Elevation Models) and topographical maps, but data resolution and interpretation introduces.
Playas also serve to recharge the aquifer that supplies much of the water for the Plains states. At the same time, however, large-scale habitat changes have endangered playas across the Great Plains, making urgent the need to understand their ecology and implement effective conservation measures.
On the role of hydrology in water resources management 89 cycle. Both the scope and problems of hydrology are closely related to the various branches of applied hydrology. The new problems arise and the science is extended. Its scope is limited to considerably less than the entire field of water. The Southern High Plains Aquifer is a rapidly depleting resource that supports agriculture in parts of New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle.
The development of the aquifer has changed the landscape and the water cycle of the region. This study illustrates the evolving patterns of land use and the effects of cultivation, from irrigated to dryland farming to the countermanding influence of the.
This book provides a state-of-the-art survey of all that is currently known about Great Plains playa ecology and conservation. Loren Smith synthesizes his own extensive research with other published studies to define playas and characterize their origin, development, flora.

Author by conservation groups, and governmental agencies interested in playa conservation and. The mean size of the Monegros saline wetlands (13ha) was greater than the average size of the playas in the High Plains of United States (ha) (Smith, ), though wetlands density was similar.
In the Southern High Plains of Texas, it is accepted that focused recharge to the High Plains Aquifer (locally known as the Ogallala) occurs through o playa lakes, which are local depressions that collect storm runoff.
The amount and rate of recharge is not precisely known, and the impact of the land use surrounding each playa lake on the amount of runoff has not been quantified.
The Ogallala Aquifer is an important source of irrigation water on the Texas High plains; however, significant decreases in saturated thickness threaten its future use for irrigation. A better understanding of the roles of playas, ephemeral surface ponds, in aquifer recharge is needed to establish levels of withdrawals that will meet either established desired future conditions or sustainability.
Ecosystem services provided by playas in the High Plains: estimated X m3 of water storage in the Southern High Plains, and these historical projections are primary threat to natural playa hydrology in all current and proposed conservation plans (e.g., Haukos and. Review: Recharge Rates and Chemistry Beneath Playas of the High Plains Aquifer.
This is a seminal paper on the hydrology of playas. The authors collate findings from publications to synthesize a consistent description of the important recharge processes of the High Plains (Ogallala) aquifer and related hydrological processes of playas.
Previous research indicates that greater recharge rates occur under cultivated land in the Southern High Plains than under unbroken soil: the transition to cultivation causes increased recharge, under both dryland and irrigated management, though most recharge still occurs through playa lakes.
The Conservation Reserve Program takes land out of. Groundwater Hydrology Rain: Falls on and enters land surface. •Some will flow over land surface as runoff- relatively common-important when the ground is frozen.
•Some will enter as interflow- just below the surface of the land- a very porous horizon (shallow flow system). • The rest percolates into the soil ÆA high percentage of that is. From best-selling and well-respected author Larry Mays, Ground and Surface Water Hydrology provides balanced coverage of surface and groundwater hydrology.
The text includes current and emerging topics such as sustainability, climate change, GIS, and new models and data sources, so readers will gain a complete and current understanding of hydrology.
This book may be used for at least three.precipitation and irrigation runoff. Indeed, many playas are already completely or nearly filled in by sediments (Luo and others,). Nonpoint source pollution from agricultural runoff and direct dumping of wastes further degrades playas.
In the High Plains of Texas, no playas are free of contaminants, including nutrients.Because of intensive agriculture and high erosion potential, the Southern High Plains receives considerable funding for USDA conservation programs, primarily through the CRP.
Early CRP contracts in the Texas High Plains consisted of mostly non-native grasses (Berthelsen et al., ), and many of these plantings remain in the landscape.
