Forecasting Future Water Levels Of Crucial Agricultural Aquifer
2013-08-27 06:24:50

Kansas State University If current irrigation trends continue, 69 percent of the groundwater stored in the High Plains Aquifer of Kansas will be depleted in 50 years. But immediately reducing water use could extend the aquifer's lifetime and increase net agricultural production through the year 2110. Those findings are part of a recently published study by David Steward, professor of civil engineering, and colleagues at Kansas State University. The study investigates the future...

Water scientists are using heat to measure the extent to which some of Australia’s inland rivers and streams could dry up due to over-extraction of groundwater. During the Millennium Drought a number of rivers and streams in the Murray-Darling Basin dried up partly as a result of over-extraction from the aquifers that normally keep them flowing. In a bid to understand the problem better and to help federal and state water managers secure our water supplies, researchers...

Groundwater Pumping Leads To Sea Level Rise
2012-05-09 07:44:38

As people pump groundwater for irrigation, drinking water, and industrial uses, the water doesn´t just seep back into the ground – it also evaporates into the atmosphere, or runs off into rivers and canals, eventually emptying into the world´s oceans. This water adds up, and a new study calculates that by 2050, groundwater pumping will cause a global sea level rise of about 0.8 millimeters per year. “Other than ice on land, the excessive groundwater extractions are...

The water cycle (or hydrologic cycle) describes the continuous movement of water above, below, and on the planet. Since the water cycle is in fact a "cycle", there is no beginning or end. Water exists in three states: liquid, vapor, and ice. Although the balance of water on our planet is fairly constant, individual water molecules may come and go. The water cycle is driven by the sun. The sun heats the oceans and allows water to evaporate into the air. The sun also heats snow and ice which...
