  • British Geological Survey quantifies nitrate storage in unsaturated zone

    To estimate nitrate stored in the unsaturated zone on a global scale between 1900 and 2000, the British Geological Survey (BGS) linked mathematical models of nitrate leaching from the base of the soil zone with estimates of groundwater recharge, unsaturated-zone porosity, and the depth to groundwater. Its modeling showed substantial continuous increase in nitrate stored in the unsaturated zone ...

  • Opinion: Geologists unveil how Britain first separated from Europe - and it was catastrophic

    As Brexit looms, Earth scientists have uncovered evidence of Britain’s original split from mainland Europe. Almost half a million years ago, according to new data, water suddenly started cascading over the narrow strip of land that joined England and France – putting pressure on a chalk bridge. Researchers show that, as a result, this ridge – a natural dam that separated the ...
