  • 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 ...

  • Flow Measurement using Cable Lengths of 800 Metres

    Bouzey reservoir is situated on the western rim of the French Vosges close to the city of Épinal. The reservoir has a storage volume of approx. 7 million m3 and since 1882 ensures steady water supply for the "Canal des Vosges". To dam up the lake a gravity dam with a height of 20 m and a length of more than 500 m was built of traditional brickwork 130 years ago. The dam structure however ...

  • The Ebb and Flow of Urban Water

    The average homeowner in Canada pays about a penny for every three litres of water they consume. Because water is so cheap, not many people pay attention to their water bills. Nor do they think twice when they pay over a hundred times as much for virtually the same water in a plastic bottle purchased at a convenience store. We flush our toilets, wash our laundry and brush our teeth every day ...

  • 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 ...

  • Study to measure long-term hard water damage

    Expanding on a major study already underway, the Water Quality Research Foundation has retained an independent testing firm to measure how hard water might damage many common household fixtures and appliances. In February, WQRF hired the Battelle Memorial Institute, a non-profit international science and technology enterprise, to examine the amount of energy savings that water softeners offer. ...

  • Satellite measurements show hidden water content of snow

    As spring arrives, many people are generally interested in the snow vanishing. Others are more interested in the water that is stored in the snow layer. Satellite measurements can show the extent and water content of the snow coverage, and where it will melt. Scientists from SMHI are part of a European research project aiming to develop new, simpler ways of using satellite data about snow and ...

  • US river flows altered by water management

    The amount of water flowing in streams and rivers has been significantly altered in nearly 90% of waters that were assessed in a new nationwide USGS study. Flow alterations are a primary contributor to degraded river ecosystems and loss of native species. Flows are altered by a variety of land- and water-management activities, including reservoirs, diversions, subsurface tile drains, groundwater ...

  • ProMinent: Flow meter for metering the flow-through of a pulsing flow

    ProMinent is showcasing its newly developed flow meter DulcoFlow®  at ACHEMA in hall 8 stand J94. Its unique feature is that for the first time the flow-through of a non-continuous flow and the amount of liquid which has flowed through in a pulsing flow regime can be reliably and precisely determined and monitored. The ProMinent developed flow meter is based on the ultrasonic ...

  • Arsenic: when will the clean water start flowing?

    Razia Begum has been asking the same question for two years now: 'Please will someone fix my arsenic filter?' She lives in Nagda, a village in one of the areas of Bangladesh most severely contaminated by arsenic in drinking water — although at first glance there is nothing about the village's lush paddy fields to suggest anything dangerous. Razia's family, like many thousands of others in such ...

  • Measuring global soil changes

    Global change is increasingly affecting important terrestrial ecosystem functions such as the filtering and buffering capacity of soils, the supply of clean water, soil fertility, and consequently, the production of food, feed, and fiber. Recent studies and reports from the United Nations indicate that water and soil resources are both heavily under pressure. Worldwide about 2 billion ha of land ...
