When it comes to understanding America’s coastal fisheries, anecdotes are gripping – stories of a choking algae bloom, or a bay’s struggle with commercial development. But when it comes to taking action, there’s no beating big data.
A new study, the Projected Impact of Climate Change on Water Availability and Development in the Koshi Basin, Nepal, by researchers from the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) in Nepal, assesses the likely impact of climate change on water resources development in the Koshi River basin and generates projections for the 2030s and 2050s.
A new NOAA nationwide analysis shows that between 1996 and 2011, 64,975 square miles in coastal regions -- can area larger than the state of Wisconsin -- experienced changes in land cover, including a decline in wetlands and forest cover with development a major contributing factor.
Sewer systems are among the most critical infrastructure assets for modern urban societies and provide essential human health protection. Sulfide-induced concrete sewer corrosion costs billions of dollars annually and has been identified as a main cause of global sewer deterioration.
Minnesota’s approach to protecting wild rice from sulfate pollution faces a key test this week. A group of scientists recruited from around the country will evaluate the state’s analysis of a series of research projects designed to determin
Pharmaceuticals, personal care products, herbicides and flame retardants are increasingly showing up in waterways. New Stanford research finds that a natural, low-cost solution – clams and mussels – may already exist for these contaminants of emerging concern, or CECs.
Dr. Guy Fipps, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service irrigation engineer, was recently named Professional Engineer of the Year at the meeting of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineersin Montreal, Canada.
This report is a synthesis of climate science relevant for management and planning for Colorado’s water resources. It focuses on observed climate trends, climate modeling, and projections of temperature, precipitation, snowpack, and streamflow.
A researcher at the Desalination Research and Technology Institute in Jubail, an affiliate of the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), has received six patents from the Australian government for works related to the development of polymer precipitation preventers, the Saudi Press Agency reported Wednesday.
Bringing interested citizens and water users together, providing a neutral forum focusing on water related issues and challenges, and becoming a part of the solution for long-term water quality improvement and conservation in a non-regulatory way, in this connection improving water quality and quantity providing for a clean and healthy future for ourselves and future generations.In this connection Gomal Damaan Area Water Partnership GDAWP launched a website www.gdawp.org which is the first Area Water Partnership website in the Global Water Partnership GWP family with all visual activit
The Columbia River basin in the Pacific Northwest offers great potential for water power; hydroelectric power stations there generate over 20 000 megawatts already. Now a simulation model will help optimize the operation of the extensive dam system.
