  • 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 ...


  • New Discoveries Improve Climate Models

    New discoveries on how underwater ridges impact the ocean's circulation system will help improve climate projections. An underwater ridge can trap the flow of cold, dense water at the bottom of the ocean. Without the ridge, deepwater can flow freely and speed up the ocean circulation pattern, which generally increases the flow of warm surface water. Warm water on the ocean's ...

  • Pricing policies for efficient water management

    Researchers have developed a new method to investigate the effects of different water pricing policies at the river basin scale. The system is intended to be used when water has to be allocated to different users under conditions of water scarcity. In many parts of the world, demand for water is outstripping the availability of water. Water is increasingly seen as a scarce resource that ...

  • 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 ...

  • Using vegetated filter strips to improve water quality

    Microbial contamination of surface water resources is a critical water quality issue, leading to many documented health and environmental concerns. Vegetated filter strips have become an important component of water quality improvement by reducing sediment and nutrient transport to surface water. Although this management practice is also beneficial for controlling manure-borne pathogen transport ...

  • Stratospheric water vapor is a global warming wild card

    A 10 percent drop in water vapor ten miles above Earth’s surface has had a big impact on global warming, say researchers in a study published online January 28 in the journal Science. The findings might help explain why global surface temperatures have not risen as fast in the last ten years as they did in the 1980s and 1990s. Observations from satellites and balloons show that stratospheric ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Measuring forestry`s impact on water availability

    Undertaken by a team of CSIRO Water for a Healthy Country Flagship scientists for the National Water Commission (NWC) and Forest & Wood Products Australia, the project developed modelling tools to provide greater confidence in estimating the impact of new plantations on catchment stream flow. Australia's blueprint for water reform – the National Water Initiative (NWI) – recognises ...

  • New tools aid arid-land water management

    New tools developed by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists are improving water management in arid regions. In areas where water is scarce, land managers irrigate with water that travels via intricate canal systems. At the ARS U.S. Arid-Land Agricultural Research Center in Maricopa, Ariz., director Bert Clemmens and his colleagues are developing computer software to automatically ...
