Latest Alkalinity Stories
Human activities are changing the water chemistry of many streams and rivers in the Eastern U.S., with consequences for water supplies and aquatic life, so reports a new study in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
Human activities are changing the basic chemistry of many rivers in the Eastern U.S. in ways that have potentially major consequences for urban water supplies and aquatic ecosystems, a University of Maryland-led study has found.
A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists. The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.
A continental-scale chemical survey in the waters of the eastern U.S. and Gulf of Mexico is helping researchers determine how distinct bodies of water will resist changes in acidity.
COVINGTON, La., June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With everyday expenses and stress on the rise, like gas prices and job pressures, Texans could use a helping hand. Today, Evamor Artesian National Water kicks off an Encounter Goodness movement to help relieve the day-to-day stresses of life.
Projects address concern for acidifying marine ecosystems.
Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...
