Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Arid but habitable regions around the world depend on limited water resources for drinking and crop irrigation. Any disruption or contamination of the water supply could be a major problem for a local population. The Draa Basin in Sub-Saharan Africa is one such region, as it has relied on runoff from Morocco's High Atlas Mountains. It has also been dammed and directed toward oases hundreds of miles to the south. A group of...

Human activities are not the primary cause of arsenic found in groundwater in Bangladesh. Instead, a team of researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Barnard College, Columbia University, University of Dhaka, Desert Research Institute and University of Tennessee found that the arsenic in groundwater in the region is part of a natural process that predates any recent human activity, such as intensive pumping. The results appear in the March 4 edition of the Proceedings...

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...

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...
