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...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As a child, we all learned about how the rings of a tree could tell us how old the tree was. Did you know that now we can know how much rainfall occurred year-to-year through this same tried and true method? Well, with a twist. A research study led by a team from the University of Leeds has used tree rings from eight cedar trees in Bolivia to determine and document a 100-year history of rainfall across the Amazon River Basin, the...

A Better Look At Salinity From SMOS
2012-10-01 08:26:12

Earth observation measurements shouldn´t be taken with a pinch of salt. ESA is comparing readings of sea-surface salinity from drifting floats to confirm the SMOS water mission´s measurements. Since its launch in 2009, ESA´s Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite has been helping us to understand the water cycle. As with any Earth observation mission, it is important to validate the readings acquired from space. This involves comparing the satellite data with...

Catskills Watershed Polluted By Hurricane Irene
2012-09-26 16:28:52

The water quality of lakes and coastal systems will be altered if  hurricanes intensify in a warming world, according to a Yale study in Geophysical Research Letters. Bryan Yoon, the study´s co-author and a doctoral student at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, found that last summer during Hurricane Irene–the worst storm in the New York area in 200 years–record amounts of dissolved organic matter darkened Catskill waters and affected the Ashokan...

Climate Change And Land Use Affect Water System
2012-09-26 07:39:37

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online We don't yet understand the how the connections between water sustainability and hydrologic processes will be affected by climate change, but to better this understanding, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has teamed up with the United States Departments of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). The collaboration has awarded grants totaling almost $27 million through the Water Sustainability and Climate...

To Protect Species And Ecosystems Major Changes Are Needed
2012-09-19 09:02:58

A landmark study has found that climate change is likely to have a major impact on Australia´s plants, animals and ecosystems that will present significant challenges to the conservation of Australia´s biodiversity. The comprehensive study by CSIRO highlights the sensitivity of Australia´s species and ecosystems to climate change, and the need for new ways of thinking about biodiversity conservation. “Climate change is likely to start to transform some of...

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...

Environmental science is a science that contains a wide range of scientific disciplines. These disciplines are grouped together based on the natural environment which they encompass and interact with. These sciences include physical, chemical, and biological components. Environmental science provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environmental systems. The most common way environmental science is studied is through the work of one individual or small team drawing on the...
