  • Drinking water in Gaza Strip contaminated with high levels of nitrate

    Palestinian and German scientists have recommended to the authorities in the Gaza Strip that they take immediate measures to combat excessive nitrate levels in the drinking water. 90 per cent of their water samples were found to contain nitrate concentrations that were between two and eight times higher than the limit recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), say the researchers from ...

  • Shale gas extraction linked to water contamination

    A new study suggests shale gas extraction leads to methane contamination of underground water sources and calls for thorough surveys of methane levels at extraction sites. The study presents a timely insight into a relatively under-researched area of science that will help support decisions on the future of shale gas exploration. Shale gas, or natural gas extracted from sedimentary rocks ...

  • Deep-water fish remove over a million tonnes of CO2 in Irish-UK waters every year

    Deep-water fish living along the Irish-UK continental slope remove more than a million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere each year, according to a recent study. Continental slope ecosystems play an important role in carbon sequestration, which should be considered before exploiting deep-water resources, say the researchers. Transport of carbon from the ocean surface to deep water is affected by ...

  • `Chemical fingerprints` could reveal source of mercury pollution

    Scientists have described a new method for tracking down the source of mercury pollution from burning coal. By analysing the chemistry of the pollution, it is possible to identify which region the coal was originally from. Mercury pollution in the atmosphere comes mainly from coal-fired power stations and chemical plants. Mercury is naturally present in coal and is emitted when it is burned as ...

  • Nitrate pollution management workshop

    At the European level, surface and groundwater nitrate pollution remains of major concern, despite considerable efforts made over the last decades via e.g. Nitrate Directive and Urban Waste Water Directive. Currently, all parties from European to local level dealing with nitrate pollution face the same challenge: significant improvement in managing and controlling human inputs of nitrate in the ...

  • Highest performance greenhouse gas analyzer now available at pricepoint optimized for widespread deployment and use

    Los Gatos Research (LGR), the leading innovator of cavity-enhanced laser-based instrumentation for analyses of gases and liquids, today announced a significant price reduction for its new greenhouse gas (GHG) analyzer designed to deliver the highest level of precision, accuracy, and stability available.  The ...

  • Journal article evaluates methane sources in groundwater in Pennsylvania

    The findings of a new study in the journal Groundwater suggest that methane concentrations in Susquehanna County water wells in Pennsylvania can be explained without the migration of Marcellus shale gas due to hydraulic fracturing. “Testing of 1,701 water wells in northeastern Pennsylvania shows that methane is ubiquitous in groundwater, with higher concentrations observed in valleys vs. ...

  • EMSL Analytical Offers Radiological Sample Analysis

    Cinnaminson, NJ, April 28th, 2011 Twenty-five years ago the world faced one of the first major crises at a nuclear power plant in Chernobyl.  Earlier this year the public was reminded of the potential hazards associated with nuclear energy when a nuclear power plant in Japan began releasing radiation after it was hit with a massive earthquake and tsunami. The most recent crisis has ...

  • A new leaf turns in carbon science

    A new insight into global photosynthesis, the chemical process governing how ocean and land plants absorb and release carbon dioxide, has been revealed in research that will assist scientists to more accurately assess future climate change. In a paper published today in Nature, a team of US, Dutch and Australian scientists have estimated that the global rate of photosynthesis, the ...

  • Oregon Prepares for Possible Radioactive Tsunami Debris

    This month, the Yamhill Valley News-Register published a story about how various Oregon agencies and groups are preparing for potentially radioactive debris to reach the coast.  Recently, they held a conference call to review Oregon’s planned response as the one year anniversary of the Japanese earthquake and resulting tsunami approaches in early March. Although most experts do not ...

  • Preliminary Stimulation Results

    Stimulation at the Newberry EGS injection well began on September 23, and continued for just over three weeks, wrapping up on October 15. We began stimulation with a step-rate injectivity test, reaching pressures as high as 2,800 psi at the wellhead. We continued to run the pumps at high pressures over most of the stimulation period, reducing the pressure when needed to replace leaky gaskets and ...

  • Managing Nuclear Information in the Cloud

    The burden of data management for the nuclear power industry is second only to that of managing nuclear material itself. For utilities operating nuclear power plants, deploying a centralized environmental management system to the “Cloud,” and housing all of their data in it, is offering unprecedented opportunities for better monitoring, aggregating and reporting of data. Aggregating ...
