  • Optical water quality assessment

    Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have proven that measuring fluorescence could improve source water monitoring during a study of the McKenzie River in Oregon.  The study was designed to assess the amount, type and source of dissolved organic carbon that exists in all sources of drinking water. Dissolved organic carbon can react with chlorine during water treatment and form ...

  • 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.

  • Sustainable management of water in an arid region: water supply measures compared

    Water shortages in water stressed regions can be alleviated by building large infrastructures, such as water transfer systems or saltwater desalination plants, which increase the supply of water. However, a new study, which compares the environmental impact of water supply alternatives in a region of Spain, concludes that reducing water use, rather than increasing supplies, is a more sustainable ...

  • Unsustainable water consumption contributes to sea level rise

    The global sea level is rising, yet only part of that rise can be attributed to the effects of climate change. New research has calculated that human impacts on terrestrial water storage make up around 42% of total sea level rise, in particular, the extraction of groundwater that eventually makes its way to the ocean. Tidal measurements have revealed that the global sea level rose by 1.8mm per ...
