  • GBP 5.3m boost to tackle surface water flooding

    A £5.3 million award to 49 local authorities to help them tackle surface water flooding - a problem when the ground, rivers and drains cannot absorb heavy rainfall - was announced today by the Environment Minister Huw Irranca- Davies. Last year local authorities were invited to submit bids, for £20,000 - £100,000 to carry out immediate engineering works and to produce specific management plans to ...

  • Real time surface water quality monitoring

    During Aquatech 2015 the Dutch company BlueLeg Monitor launched the newly developed fixed position EcoWatch for continuous real time surface water monitoring focusing upon relevant ecological water parameters. A new method to determine surface water quality is to use the color characteristics of the water using spectrometers and to interpret the spectral graphs with sophisticated algorithms. ...

  • EPA awards $2.5 million to Arizona to improve surface water quality

    The Environmental Protection Agency awarded $2.5 million to the State of Arizona for projects to help restore water quality in the state’s polluted water bodies. With an additional $1.6 million leveraged by the state for these activities, more than $4 million is available this year to improve surface water quality. 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, ‘ ...

  • Rare water data drives heating debate underground

    Two great bodies of water have begun to feel the heat. European scientists report that they have evidence that the planet’s groundwater – the subterranean ocean of freshwater that bubbles into wells, freshens desert springs, scours great underground limestone caverns and makes ...

  • Study: Plastic Debris Widespread on Ocean Surface

    Plastic junk is floating widely on the world's oceans, but there's less of it than expected, a study says. Such ocean pollution has drawn attention in recent years because of its potential harm to fish and other wildlife. The new work drew on results from an around-the-world cruise by a research ship that towed a mesh net at 141 sites, as well as other studies. Researchers estimated the total ...

  • 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 ...

  • Greenland`s rising air temperatures drive ice loss at surface and beyond

    Greenland's enormous ice sheet is home to enough ice to raise sea level by about 23 feet if the entire ice sheet were to melt into surrounding waters. Though the loss of the whole ice sheet is unlikely, loss from Greenland's ice mass has already contributed in part to 20th century sea level rise of about two millimeters per year, and future melt has the potential to impact people and economies ...

  • Managing Hydrofracking Data in Cloud

     There is little dispute in both scientific and business communities that groundwater protection and water usage in general at hydrofracking sites provide the biggest challenges for this young and promising industry. To date, criticism of fracking has focused mainly on concerns that the chemicals energy companies are mixing with the water could contaminate underground aquifers. Although ...

  • Beneath the surface: a survey of environmental risks from shale gas development

    Improved drilling techniques have unlocked vast new reserves of shale gas, a resource that could be large enough to displace significant amounts of coal, and an energy source that emits less than half the carbon dioxide. But growing shale gas development has raised both environmental questions and public controversy. A new independent assessment by the Worldwatch Institute concludes that improved ...

  • Greenland 97 per cent surface melting - what does it mean?

    25 Jul 2012 - Over several days at the start of July this year nearly the whole surface of the Greenland ice sheet thawed, according to new NASA satellite data. Typically around half of the ice sheet's surface melts during summer, so scientists were surprised when by July 12th this year an estimated 97 percent of ...
