  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Murray-Darling water to flow where it is needed most

    Funded by the National Water Commission, the report; Ecological Outcomes of Flow Regimes in the Murray-Darling Basin, provides information that will assist water managers to improve and justify delivery of environmental water to ‘icon sites’, including wetlands of international significance such as the Macquarie Marshes, Gwydir Wetlands and Narran Lakes. “It’s no secret ...

  • Two-Dimensional hydrodynamic stormwater and overland flow modeling

    InfoSWMM 2D is a geospatial modeling solution for building and analysing comprehensive 2D models that simulate urban stormwater, sanitary sewers, river flooding and pollutant transport. The application allows engineers to accurately model two-dimensional (2D) above-ground urban and rural flooding combined with the power of one-dimensional (1D) hydraulic and water quality sewer systems analysis - ...

  • Go with the flow in flood prediction

    Floods have once again wreaked havoc across the country and climate scientists and meteorologists suggest that the problem is only going to get worse with wetter winters and rivers bursting their banks becoming the norm. A team based at Newcastle University and their colleagues in China have developed a computer model that can work ...

  • Global water consumption increases frequency and intensity of low flows in rivers and streams

    Human water consumption has increased the frequency and intensity of periods of abnormally low flow in streams, new research suggests. The frequency of these events increased by 30% globally, largely due to use of water for irrigation, the researchers conclude. Between 1960 and 2010, global water consumption has more than doubled and currently stands at 1970 cubic kilometres per year (km3/yr). ...

  • Underwater ridges impact Ocean`s Warm water flow

    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 surface makes the ...
