USGS-Led Study Estimates Lithium in Groundwater That Can Be Used for Drinking Water 

The first national estimates of naturally occurring lithium in groundwater that can be used for drinking water were recently published by the U.S. Geological Survey. The USGS-led study focuses on groundwater that supplies water to both public and private wells.  Ongoing research by health organizations has linked the low-level occurrence of natural lithium in drinking water to

Rapidly Intensifying Hurricanes Near Coastline Pose Major Threat to U.S. This Season 

With the Atlantic Hurricane Season beginning on June 1, 2024, AccuWeather expert meteorologists are concerned about a serious threat of rapidly intensifying storms during the 2024 Atlantic Hurricane season, which could leave families, businesses and government leaders with less time to react and prepare.    Rapid intensification of tropical storms and hurricanes is defined as a

Tracking Bolivian Salt Lakes 

This Copernicus Sentinel-2 image features salt flats and lakes in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes Mountains. Acquired in April 2024, this false-color image shows part of the Oruro Department toward the southern end of the Altiplano, a high plain that stretches almost 1,000 kilometers from Peru to Bolivia.  The image was processed using the near-infrared

NASA-Led Study Provides New Global Accounting of Earth’s Rivers 

A study led by NASA researchers provides new estimates of how much water courses through Earth’s rivers, the rates at which it’s flowing into the ocean, and how much both of those figures have fluctuated over time—crucial information for understanding the planet’s water cycle and managing its freshwater supplies. The results also highlight regions depleted

SWOT Satellite Helps Gauge the Depth of Death Valley’s Temporary Lake 

California’s Death Valley, the driest place in North America, has hosted an ephemeral lake since late 2023. A NASA-led analysis recently calculated water depths in the temporary lake over several weeks in February and March 2024, demonstrating the capabilities of the U.S.-French Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite, which launched in December 2022.   The analysis found

AccuWeather Forecasts Explosive 2024 Hurricane Season 

AccuWeather’s team of expert meteorologists is warning people and businesses to start preparing for a frenzy of tropical activity that could have major impacts on the United States this hurricane season.   The AccuWeather 2024 Atlantic Hurricane Season Forecast calls for 20 to 25 named storms. Eight to 12 of those storms are forecast to strengthen into hurricanes. Four to six

Can Volcanic Super Eruptions Lead to Major Cooling? Study Suggests No 

New research suggests that sunlight-blocking particles from an extreme eruption would not cool surface temperatures on Earth as severely as previously estimated.  Some 74,000 years ago, the Toba volcano in Indonesia exploded with a force 1,000 times more powerful than the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. The mystery is what happened after that—namely, to

Satellites Eye Winter Cover Crops 

For the second year in a row, farmers in Maryland planted a record amount of winter cover crops in 2016-17. These cold-tolerant crops—including wheat, rye, barley and radish—are planted in the fall. In addition to increasing soil health and boosting yields, cover crops reduce soil erosion and absorb nutrients such as nitrogen that could otherwise affect water quality

OpenET Study Helps Water Managers and Farmers Put NASA Data to Work 

As the world looks for sustainable solutions, a system tapping into NASA satellite data for water management has passed a critical test.  Called OpenET, the system uses an ensemble of six satellite-driven models that harness publicly available data from the Landsat program to calculate evapotranspiration (ET)—the movement of water vapor from soil and plant leaves
