Recent water quality data shows that a significant percentage of surface ...

  • More than half of EU surface waters below ‘good’ ecological status

    Water pollution and physical modifications are still affecting the ecology of many of Europe’s lakes, rivers, transitional water bodies and coastal waters. These problems are likely to prevent the water bodies reaching ‘good’ status by 2015, a target set by the EU’s Water Framework Directive (WFD). The report, ‘ ...

  • All it takes for Water Monitoring and Data Network

    The management of monitoring of equipment is increasingly done remotely at a (considerable) distance. Configuration, reading and, if necessary, taking action on data received from a remote location of one’s choice are possibilities that are nowadays standard requirements. You can do a lot more than just measure with the e-SENSE® telemetry measuring system, where measurement data is collected ...

  • Climate studies to benefit from 12 years of satellite aerosol data

    Aerosols, very small particles suspended in the air, play an important role in the global climate balance and in regulating climate change. They are one of the greatest sources of uncertainty in climate change models. ESA's GlobAerosol project has been making the most of European satellite capabilities to monitor them. Using data from the Along Track Scanning Radiometer-2 on the ERS-2 satellite, ...

  • Measuring water from space

    Observations from satellites now allow scientists to monitor changes to water levels in the sea, in rivers and lakes, in ice sheets and even under the ground. As the climate changes, this information will be crucial for monitoring its effects and predicting future impacts in different regions. Sea level rise in one of the major consequences of global warming, but it is much more difficult to ...

  • Water security in an uncertain world

    Policymakers must find flexible plans to ensure water security despite the uncertainties of climate change, says climate scientist Mark New. Much of the developing world is dependent on rainfall, snow or ice for its natural water supplies, so researchers and policymakers are concerned about how climate change will affect water security. Long-term water availability is largely determined by the ...

  • Satellites unlock secret to vanishing water

    A team of hydrologists led by Matt Rodell of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., found that northern India's underground water supply is being pumped and consumed by human activities, such as irrigating cropland, and is draining aquifers faster than natural processes can replenish them. The results of this research were published today in Nature. The finding is based on data ...
