Submarine Canyons Important Source Of Marine Invertebrate Diversity, Abundance
2013-08-28 11:44:54

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Submarine canyons play an important role in maintaining high levels of biodiversity of small invertebrates in the seafloor sediments of the main and northwestern Hawaiian Islands, according to research from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. What’s more, scientists have used this data to draw new connections between the levels of faunal diversity and the heterogeneity of submarine canyon landscapes at various spatial scales. “Submarine canyons...

Forecasting Future Water Levels Of Crucial Agricultural Aquifer
2013-08-27 06:24:50

Kansas State University If current irrigation trends continue, 69 percent of the groundwater stored in the High Plains Aquifer of Kansas will be depleted in 50 years. But immediately reducing water use could extend the aquifer's lifetime and increase net agricultural production through the year 2110. Those findings are part of a recently published study by David Steward, professor of civil engineering, and colleagues at Kansas State University. The study investigates the future...

A new model to predict the risk of contaminants in groundwater will save those who use it significant time and money, highlighting drinking water quality issues in the process. This model is currently being implemented in China to determine the spread of groundwater contamination by arsenic. "Arsenic poisoning due to the use of contaminated drinking water is a major health problem in many parts of the world," explained Dr. Luis Rodriguez-Lado, a researcher on the model design team....

Sharon Kleyne interviews Water Engineer Neil Grigg, PhD about Water Conservation. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) August 21, 2013 One way to encourage water conservation and help the public understand water’s immense value in their lives, might be to charge consumers what water is actually worth. The suggestion was recently proposed by noted Water Engineer Neil Grigg, PhD, during an interview by radio host and water researcher Sharon Kleyne. Dr. Grigg is a Professor of Civil Engineering at...

In a new informative article by SureAqua, water purification company, an inquiry is made into the role that is played by droughts in the World Water Crisis. (PRWEB) August 21, 2013 Planet Earth's surface area is made up of 70% water, of which only 2.5% is fresh. Unfortunately two-thirds of this is glaciers and polar ice caps. Two billion people world wide rely on ground water as their source of potable water and roughly half of America relies on groundwater. In a new informative...

Endorheic Basin
2013-04-18 22:40:14

An endorheic basin, from the Ancient Greek endon, meaning “within” and rhein, meaning “to flow”, is a closed drainage basin that holds onto water and does not allow outflow to other external bodies of water, such as oceans or rivers, but joins instead into lakes or swamps, seasonal or permanent, that equilibrate via evaporation. Basins such as these might also be referred to as closed or terminal basin or as internal drainage systems. Usually, water that has built up in a drainage...

A drainage divide, water divide, divide, or watershed is the line that separates neighboring drainage basins. In flat country the divide may be invisible (just a notional line on the ground either side of which water starts its journey to different waterways). While, in hilly country, the divide lies along peaks and ridges. Drainage divides are important geographical, and sometimes political boundaries. Roads and railways often follow divides to minimize slopes and marshes and rivers....

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...

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...
