  • Port Gamble sewage plant to protect shellfish, recharge groundwater

    The historic town of Port Gamble is about to get a new-fangled sewage-treatment plant, one that will allow highly treated effluent to recharge the groundwater in North Kitsap. The old treatment plant discharges its effluent into Hood Canal, causing the closure of about 90 acres of shellfish beds. After the new plant is in operation, those shellfish beds are likely to be reopened, officials ...

  • Deep thinking on the world’s oceans

    Changes in deep ocean conditions affect global climate, with deep warming contributing to sea-level rise and the deep ocean absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide. To assess change, researchers determine the amount of energy (in the form of heat), water and gases (including carbon dioxide), entering and exiting the ocean. They rely on valuable but infrequent deep ocean measurements from ships, ...

  • Encouraging signals from the deep

    World attention is focused these days on the rescue efforts to free 33 trapped miners from a collapsed mine in Chile. It is a story of heroism, determination and technological achievement in the face of almost unimaginable obstacles. But despite the joy of the (hopefully) successful Chilean rescue efforts, there remains a larger global issue regarding the social, economic and environmental ...

  • Microplastics discovered in the deep, open ocean

    A unique study by scientists at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) will provide valuable new insights into the concentrations of microplastics in the open ocean from surface to the sea bed. Professor Richard Lampitt and Dr Katsia Pabortsava, who lead microplastic research at NOC, said “There is considerable uncertainty about the concentration and characteristics of the many ...

  • Capturing and storing CO2 deep underground

    CSIRO and the CRC for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) hosted a seminar today on the latest research and technology underpinning carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS).  The seminar, held at the Australian Resources Research Centre in Perth, was officially opened by the Western Australian Minister for Energy; Resources; Industry and Enterprise, The Hon. Francis Logan. Experts from ...

  • Shedding light on the cinderellas of the deep sea

    Ocean sponges from shallower waters have already been shown to be valuable sources for new medicinal drugs to treat cancers and for antibiotics, and it is expected that deepwater sponges will be equally valuable, if not more so. A groundbreaking new report, Deep-sea Sponge Grounds: Reservoirs of Biodiversity, which consolidates knowledge on the biology and ecology of deep-water sponge grounds, ...

  • Deep geologic repository for radioactive waste

    The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has announced the availability of up to $175,000 under its Participant Funding Program to assist groups and individuals to participate in the environmental assessment of Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) proposed facility for the long-term disposal of low and intermediate level radioactive waste in Ontario. To receive funding, successful ...

  • REMOTE LEVEL MONITORING OF DEEP RIVERS

    Remote River Monitoring with SmartScan25 SolidAT solution for Remote River Level Monitoring is now enhanced with the introduction of GaugerTX. Until recently, GaugerGSM sensors were deployed, allowing measurements of river depth ranges up to 9.5 meters (31’). GaugerGSM are ultrasonic level sensors compactly integrated with GSM communications. GaugerGSM, together with GaugerNET, a web-based ...

  • Moving Bed Reactors

    Mobile bed biological systems (MBBR) have experimented a strong impulse in the last times due to their flexibility and simplicity in enlargement works for existing WWTP and application in newly constructed plants, since it allows modular facilities, greatly replacing the presence gained by the MBR (membrane bioreactor) system with lower costs. All this has been possible thanks to high ...

  • Deep concern over invisible threat to Antarctic glaciers

    The Antarctic ice shelf is under threat from a silent, invisible agency – and the rate of melting of glaciers has trebled in the last two decades. The ocean waters of the deep circumpolar current that swirl around the continent have been getting measurably warmer and nearer the ocean surface over the last 40 years, and now they could be accelerating glacier flow by melting the ...

  • Improved oxygen conditions in the Baltic deep water

    Oxygen conditions in the south eastern Baltic have improved thanks to an inflow of oxygen-rich water from the North Sea during November/December 2011. This inflow has also caused the concentrations of phosphate and silicate to increase in the surface waters, which could cause excessive algal blooms this summer. As a result of the relatively large inflow from the Kattegat to the Baltic ...
