Latest Environmental science Stories
Detecting drought before it causes more catastrophe: the news could go down like a cool drink of water for regions feeling the heat.
What happens when physicists play (using mathematical instruments) with the genetics of populations?
The world's biodiversity is in an ongoing dramatic decline that despite conservation efforts remains unprecedented in its speed and predicted effects on global ecosystem functioning and services.
After several years of discussions, researchers from Aarhus University (Denmark), Lund University (Sweden) and Stockholm University (Sweden) have determined that nutrients from the land are the main cause of widespread areas of oxygen depletion.
One of the most serious threats to global biodiversity and the leisure and tourism industries is set to increase with climate change.
This year’s National Groundwater Awareness Week comes at a much needed time for the discussion of groundwater concerns such as coal mining, fracking, pollution and conservation.

"In a state facing epic water shortages, LINX systems are the solution for so many California homes and business that are faced with nitrate-contaminated water." San
A long held belief says that oxygenation of the atmosphere and oceans were a pre-requisite for the evolution of complex life forms. However, the latest study suggests that the first animals helped oxygenate the world's oceans.
Reducing the size of the Lake Erie "dead zone" to acceptable levels will require cutting nutrient pollution nearly in half in coming decades, at a time when climate change is expected to make such reductions more difficult.
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 Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published online bi-monthly by CSIRO Publishing. The journal publishes original research and review articles on all aspects of environmental chemistry, including those addressing the chemistry of air, water, soil, sediments, space and biota. Topics include atmospheric chemistry, geochemistry, climate change, marine chemistry, water chemistry, polar chemistry, fire chemistry, astrochemistry, earth and geochemistry, soil and sediment...
The International Journal of Biometeorology is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the International Society of Biometeorology. The journal publishes original research papers, review articles, and short communications on studies examining the interactions between living organisms and factors of the natural and artificial physical environment. It publishes articles in the following fields: Earth and environmental science, life...
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...
