  • British Geological Survey quantifies nitrate storage in unsaturated zone

    To estimate nitrate stored in the unsaturated zone on a global scale between 1900 and 2000, the British Geological Survey (BGS) linked mathematical models of nitrate leaching from the base of the soil zone with estimates of groundwater recharge, unsaturated-zone porosity, and the depth to groundwater. Its modeling showed substantial continuous increase in nitrate stored in the unsaturated zone ...

  • Fitting pieces for biosensors

    Research and industry are increasingly exploiting the potential of aptamers. As well as their application in research, medical diagnosis and treatment, aptamers are also interesting as a basis for biosensors for use in environmental analysis because their characteristics enable them to identify and bind target molecules as surely as a key fits a lock. In a new book, researchers at the Helmholtz ...
