Martian Water Clues From Groundwater Behavior On Earth

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online By studying the behavior of groundwater at different densities, a team of Australian scientists is hoping to help with the study of water on other planets, as well as water conservation strategies here on Earth. The team is currently working on the theory that groundwater runs faster whenever it contains salt, heat, radioactive waste or polluted fluids from landfills – all of which raise the water’s density and therefore the speed...

Water scientists are using heat to measure the extent to which some of Australia’s inland rivers and streams could dry up due to over-extraction of groundwater. During the Millennium Drought a number of rivers and streams in the Murray-Darling Basin dried up partly as a result of over-extraction from the aquifers that normally keep them flowing. In a bid to understand the problem better and to help federal and state water managers secure our water supplies, researchers...

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

University of Hawaii “‘ SOEST 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). Previous research has predicted that by the end of the century, sea level may rise 1 meter. Kolja Rotzoll, Postdoctoral...

A portion of the groundwater in the upper Patapsco aquifer underlying Maryland is over a million years old. A new study suggests that this ancient groundwater, a vital source of freshwater supplies for the region east of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, was recharged over periods of time much greater than human timescales. "Understanding the average age of groundwater allows scientists to estimate at what rate water is re-entering the aquifer to replace the water we are currently extracting...


Word of the Day
attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
