The discovery of ℠wonky holes´ — strange freshwater seeps resembling miniature volcanoes on the seafloor — is giving Australian water scientists important new insights into the nation´s groundwater resources, and how they may be used by coastal communities. Wonky holes — named by fishermen whose nets they snagged, threatening to capsize their boats — were first found in a 60 km-wide strip fringing the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) coastline. These...

“Talk about unintended consequences,” Dodson grinned. “I did this survey as an information gleaning and sales tool to sell Infiltration, and it went not just viral, it went ballistic.” “My book is about self defense in a rural area, but these respondents were from urban areas as well, and I´ve been told that they feel as threatened by a silent government. The numbers (79%) say they do not believe the government is telling the truth as far as homeland...

Using Math To Better Understand River, Valley Networks
2012-12-06 16:23:13

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers wrote in a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) that they have used math to explain different characteristics of river and valley networks. Rivers and valleys form intricate branching patterns, which have inspired some scientists to develop a theoretical understanding of river-network geometry. MIT scientists have created a mathematical theory to discover a common...

Sinking the local groundwater table by as little as 10 meters below the surface can kill an Australian landscape, researchers at the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT) warned today. And in a groundbreaking advance, a team from NCGRT and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has come up with an early warning system that can potentially tell Australian groundwater managers and users when they are in danger of taking too much water away from the trees....

Australia should prepare now for dry times ahead by ℠banking´ its water underground when rainfall is plentiful, according to an important new scientific study. "There is enormous national potential to store surplus water in aquifers, ensuring sufficient water is available for cities, homes, industry, farming and the environment when drought strikes", says researcher Andrew Ross of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT). “We need to start...

Previous Predictions Of Groundwater Flooding Doubles With Future Sea Level Rise
2012-11-12 11:08:42

University of Hawaii “‘ SOEST Scientists from the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) published a study today in Nature Climate Change showing that besides marine inundation (flooding), low-lying coastal areas may also be vulnerable to "groundwater inundation," a factor largely unrecognized in earlier predictions on the effects of sea level rise (SLR). Previous research has predicted that by the end of the century, sea level may rise 1 meter. Kolja Rotzoll, Postdoctoral...

New methods might allow polluted sites to be investigated and monitored long term at significantly reduced costs. Authorities and those who have to remediate polluted sites in Europe might therefore be able to save costs and use these to treat other areas. This is the conclusion of the EU research project ModelPROBE, which was coordinated by the UFZ and the results of which were presented to the public on Friday 21, September 2012 at the international REMTECH Expo exhibition in Ferrara, North...

Water Pollution
2013-03-25 12:43:15

Water pollution is the contamination of bodies of water including rivers, oceans, lakes, aquifers and groundwater. Water pollution is when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into a body of water without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects the plants and organisms that reside in these bodies of water. In almost all of the cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and populations, but to the natural biological communities as...
