  • Calculating ‘old’ and ‘new’ water runoff

    Just ahead of a rainstorm, Cody Ross might run out to an agricultural research site as part of his graduate work. He’ll need to get some dye into an injection well. The point? To evaluate the path that water follows from the field during and after the rainstorm. Ross, a member of the Watershed Systems Research Program at the University of Manitoba, is measuring water flow in a part of ...

  • Integrated water management helps control agricultural pollution

    By 2015, all surface waters and groundwaters in the European Union should aim to achieve 'good status', with healthy ecosystems and low levels of pollution. The goals for the management of these bodies of water are set out under the Water Framework Directive1. Recent research suggests that integrated management of water catchment areas could be used to control sources of pollution within river ...

  • Ocean salinities show an intensified water cycle

    The stronger water cycle means arid regions have become drier and high rainfall regions wetter as atmospheric temperature increases. The study, co-authored by CSIRO scientists Paul Durack and Dr Susan Wijffels, shows the surface ocean beneath rainfall-dominated regions has freshened, whereas ocean regions dominated by evaporation are saltier. The paper also confirms that surface warming of the ...

  • Sediment pollution should be included in water quality assessments

    The quality of surface water is best assessed using the status of both the water and underlying sediment. A recent study concluded that water bodies risk being misclassified if sediment assessment is not included, which can lead to unnecessary recovery costs. Under the Water Framework Directive1 (WFD), Member States are required to achieve at least 'good water status' for surface water (inland, ...
