  • Tungsten groundwater contamination

    Originally thought to be non-toxic, tungsten is replacing lead in fishing weights and in ammunition for hunting and recreational shooting. However, recent studies indicate that (under certain environmental conditions) some forms of tungsten can move readily through soil and leach into groundwater. A Kansas State University scientist investigates. Tungsten is a naturally occurring metallic element ...

  • Groundwater evaluation platform

    SuperGeo Technologies has developed a data platform for groundwater recharge areas in order to evaluate the recharge potential. The platform is able to assist researchers in delimiting groundwater recharge areas and also in determining parameters such as recharge rate, pumping rate, flow rate and recharge potential. Water resource protection is one of the most important policies in Taiwan. ...
