  • Towards the ultimate model of water

    Water is essential to life as we know it; from its unusual density maximum which preserves freshwater ecosystems by ensuring that ponds freeze from the top down during winter, to its hydrogen bonds which shape proteins and the DNA double helix. But while water (in its liquid, solid and vapour forms) is one of the most common substances on Earth, many of its life-sustaining properties remain a ...

  • New, Improved: Water Quality Modeling Tool

    (Washington, DC ) The Environmental Protection Agency has released a new version of its acclaimed watershed management program, making it easier to use and more readily available.

  • The world’s first model for engineered nanoparticles in surface waters

    Researchers of Wageningen University provide the world’s first spatiotemporally explicit model that simulates the behaviour and fate of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in surface waters. Wageningen researcher Bart Koelmans: “This is important in order to assure safe nanotechnology. We do need to have an assessment of the risks of ENPs to man and the environment.” ...

  • The right to water

    The problem is real. The United Nations forecasts that by 2030, nearly half of the world’s population will be living in areas of 'high water stress, and climate change is compounding the problem according to a UN report released to coincide with the Istanbul conference.  Global warming is causing droughts in some areas and floods in others. In Africa alone, between 75 million and 250 million ...

  • Tacoma group offers role model for providing safe water

    No one wants to deny a thirsty child a glass of clean water to drink - especially not in the United States, where clean water flows freely from our taps, our drinking fountains and our Brita filters. But around the world, three million people die every year from waterborne diseases caused by unclean drinking water and 90 percent of them are children under the age of 5. Although this problem may ...

  • New model simulates US groundwater and surface water interactions

    A new model to simulate groundwater and surface water interactions has been released by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The groundwater and surface water FLOW (GSFLOW) model simultaneously accounts for climatic conditions, runoff across the land surface, subsurface flow and storage, and the connections among terrestrial systems, streams, lakes, wetlands, and ground water. 'GSFLOW can be used ...

  • Choking coastal waters

    WRI, together with Dr. Bob Diaz at the Virginia Marine Institute, has identified and mapped 415 eutrophic and hypoxic coastal systems worldwide through an extensive literature review. Of these, 169 are documented hypoxic areas, 233 are areas of concern and 13 are systems in recovery. Our findings highlight the dramatic growth of areas receiving the endflows of nitrogen and phosphorus created by ...
