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.
Rivers and valleys form intricate branching patterns, which have inspired some scientists to develop a theoretical understanding of river-network geometry.
Australia should prepare now for dry times ahead by ‘banking’ its water underground when rainfall is plentiful.
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).
A new 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 world’s largest river system.
