In the past two centuries, the sea's acidity level has risen 26 percent, mirroring the proportion of carbon dioxide it absorbs from the air, they said in a report to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) meeting in South Korea.
González-Pinzón was recently awarded a faculty water research grant by the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) to implement a hydrological modeling framework that allows estimates of water budgets from stream flow data.
A radioactive wastewater treating method comprises the steps of: firstly performing a reverse osmosis treatment on the radioactive wastewater, then transporting the radioactive wastewater into a continuous electric desalination unit for treating, and further removing the radionuclide for making the discharged wastewa
Once the fourth-biggest lake in the world, the eastern basin of the Aral Sea in central Asia is now completely dry. It is the result of a Soviet-era project to divert rivers for agriculture and a lack of rainfall at its source.
group of scientists at the University of Southern Denmark have developed what they're calling a "crystalline materials that can bind and store oxygen in high concentrations." In other words, they've figured out how to pack a room's worth of oxygen into a bucket full of crystals.
ince 2011, Google has been challenging innovative teens aged 13-18 from all around the world, to use their technology and scientific know-how to transform the world into a better place. Contestants are categorized into three age categories (13-14, 15-16, 17-18) and five semi-finalists are selected from each.
Water stress — the general scarcity of freshwater for people who need it — is considered by many scientists as one of the biggest challenges facing humanity and struggling ecosystems in a world increasingly affected by climate change.
Glaciers and ice-sheets are neglected but vital microbial habitats. Microbial processes in glacial systems act as "sentinels and amplifiers" of climate change impacts on glacial systems, thus ice-microbe interactions assume importance on both societally-relevant and evolutionary timescales.
The wastewater left over from the process is not only highly radioactive, but also is contaminated with heavy metals salts known as halides, which are not suitable for consumption,according to the scientists.
Building upon a long-standing academic relationship between DRI faculty and their colleagues at China's Hohai University, the new collaboration will develop a joint-international laboratory that will facilitate faculty and student exchanges; water resources management and training, and&nb
