Regenerative water alliance

You're invited to join us in regenerating the water cycle of our planet.

We are activating a global network of watershed communities and water practitioners. By working to infiltrate rainwater into the landscape we help lessen water scarcity, reduce excessive heat, and interrupt the cycle of drought, fire, and flood.

we can do this . . . and we must.

scientific papers

There is a lot of science behind the new water paradigm, though it is scattered across many sub-disciplines of climate science and ecology. Together with others such as yourself, we hope to create a map of this knowledge and codify it into a set of water principles. To begin this endeavor we offer the extensive database you'll find below of over 300 papers spanning around 30 categories.

Small Water Cycle, Moisture Recycling: Evapotranspiration Affects Rain

*Water vapor travels 500-2000km in tropics before it becomes rain again in moisture recycling. It travels 3000-5000km in temperate regions, and 7000 km in desert regions. Time of recycling is 3 to 20 days, except in deserts where it is much longer.

A new metric for estimating local moisture cycling and its influence upon seasonal precipitation ratesAnderson, B.T., A.C. Ruane, J.O. Roads, M. Kanamitsu, and G. Salvucci, 20081984
