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.

Using Math To Better Understand River, Valley Networks

Australia should prepare now for dry times ahead by ‘banking’ its water underground when rainfall is plentiful.

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

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).

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...

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...
