Tropical groundwater resources resilient to climate change
[Science News] Tropical groundwater may prove to be a climate-resilient source of freshwater in the tropics as intense rainfall favours the replenishment of these resources, according to a new study published in Environmental Research Letters.
Scientists push boundaries to find new energy
[Climate News Network] Wind and solar energy remain the only obvious replacements for fossil fuels, but recent research shows that scientists are clearly thinking outside the box to come up with future alternatives. They have recently been able to report at least theoretical progress with nuclear energy, algae, and a novel alloy.
Efficient irrigation could spur expanded farming
[EnvironmentalResearchWeb] Half the benefits of efficient irrigation technologies would be lost under widespread adoption in India because farmers would simply divert the saved water to new cropland. That¡¯s the conclusion of a study of Indian groundwater by researchers in India and the US, who recommend the adoption of incentives for water conservation, such as charging for groundwater pumping.
Organic mega flow battery promises breakthrough for renewable energy
[Harvard University] A team of Harvard scientists and engineers has demonstrated a new type of battery that could fundamentally transform the way electricity is stored on the grid, making power from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar far more economical and reliable.
Climate Leadership Award winners to be honored
[C2ES] Thirteen organizations, three partnerships, and one individual are being honored today with Climate Leadership Awards for their accomplishments in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and driving climate action. The awardees come from a wide array of sectors, including manufacturing, technology, energy, retail, and government...
Pressure building on global water supply
[IIASA] A new study projects that global demand for water could more than double by 2050, increasing pressure on already scarce water resources. Water efficiency and water saving measures could stabilize demand...
[New Book] Hydraulic Design and Management of Wastewater Transport Systems
[IWA] Hydraulic Design and Management of Wastewater Transport Systems is a manual resulting from the research project CAPWAT (CAPacity loss in wasteWATer pressure pipelines), which researched the mechanisms for the creation, stagnation and discharge of gas bubbles in wastewater pressure pipelines. During this six-year research programme...
Statistical analysis and mapping of water levels in Miami-Dade County, Florida, 2000¨C2009
[USGS] Statistical analyses and maps representing mean, high, and low water-level conditions in the surface water and groundwater of Miami-Dade County were made by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, to help inform decisions necessary for urban planning and development. Sixteen maps were created that show contours of ...
El Nino unlikely to quench reservoirs' thirst in California
[HydroWorld] As the first of several El Nino-driven storms drenched California on Jan. 5, state authorities and meteorologists caution that even the wettest of winters and higher than normal snowfall cannot completely replenish the state's depleted reservoirs. Mammoth Mountain, located in Eastern California along the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Inyo National Forest, recorded 5 in of snowfall on Nov. 15 ...
Droplet-mobility theory set to shed light on clouds
[Environmental Research Web] Scientists in Israel claim to have opened a window onto the effect of aerosols on clouds with a theory that should allow easy calculation of the mobility of cloud droplets. The theory reveals that the mobility of droplets, which the scientists define as their ability to move with surrounding air, is inversely related to their "effective terminal velocity" (ETV). This is defined as the average of all droplet terminal velocities ? their maximum speed when falling ? weighted by their mass.
