Investing in Nature Can Help China Solve Water Pollution Challenges

Beijing—The Nature Conservancy (TNC) released the China Urban Water Blueprint showing nature can be key to improving water quality for more than 150 million people. The report analyzes the state of water sources tapped by China’s 30 largest and fastest growing cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Wuhan and found that 73 percent of these watersheds face

Summer Melt-Driven Streams on Greenland’s Ice Sheet Brought Into Focus

EUGENE, Ore., April 5, 2016—Erosion by summertime melt-driven streams on Greenland’s ice sheet shapes landscapes similarly to, but much faster than, rivers do on land, says a University of Oregon geologist. The approach used to study the ice sheet should help to broaden scientific understanding of melt rates and improve projections about glacial response to

Cold Mountain Streams Offer Climate Refuge

A new study offers hope for cold-water species in the face of climate change. The study, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, addresses a longstanding paradox between predictions of widespread extinctions of cold-water species and a general lack of evidence for those extinctions despite decades of recent climate change. The

USGS Seeks National Ground-Water Monitoring Network Proposals 2016 Round II

The U.S. Geological Survey will award up to $4 million in cooperative agreements to support participation in the National Ground-Water Monitoring Network (NGWMN). The USGS is working with the Federal Advisory Committee on Water Information’s (ACWI) Subcommittee on Ground Water (SOGW) to develop and administer the NGWMN.  The NGWMN is designed as a cooperative groundwater

Interior Department Releases Report Underscoring Impacts of Climate Change on Western Water Resources

WASHINGTON – Putting the national spotlight on the importance of water sustainability, the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Reclamation released a basin-by-basin report that characterizes the impacts of climate change and details adaptation strategies to better protect major river basins in the West that are fundamental to the health, economy, security and

New Technique Tracks ‘Heartbeat’ of Hundreds of Wetlands

For two University of Washington researchers, the real test came as they walked across a barren-looking field. They were on the Columbia Plateau with two state wetland ecologists, searching for a 1-acre body of water identified and mapped for the first time using a new method they developed. But when the group arrived at the

Climate Change Redistributes Global Water Resources

Rising temperatures worldwide are changing not only weather systems, but — just as importantly — the distribution of water around the globe, according to a study published today (March 14, 2016) in the journal, “Scientific Reports.” Analysis of more than 40 years of water samples archived at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest (HBEF) in New

World’s Large River Deltas Continue to Degrade From Human Activity

From the Yellow River in China to the Mississippi River in Louisiana, researchers are racing to better understand and mitigate the degradation of some of the world’s most important river deltas, according to a University of Colorado Boulder faculty member. CU-Boulder Professor James Syvitski said more than two-thirds of the world’s 33 major deltas are

NASA, University Study Shows Rising Seas Slowed by Increasing Water on Land

New measurements from a NASA satellite have allowed researchers to identify and quantify, for the first time, how climate-driven increases of liquid water storage on land have affected the rate of sea level rise. A new study by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, and the University of California, Irvine, shows

Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Freshwater Higher Than Thought

MADISON, Wis. – Do not underestimate the babbling brook. When it comes to greenhouse gases, these bucolic water bodies have the potential to create a lot of hot air.According to a new analysis in the journal Ecological Monographs, by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and colleagues, the world’s rivers and streams pump about 10
