West Virginia is no stranger to ravaging floods, severe droughts and other climate change threats….
An integrated model of climate and human activity suggests water scarcity can have economic ripple effects across the globe – sometimes amplifying economic harm, sometimes even providing benefits to distant regions. The model informs the management of regional water resources and economic adaptation
ORNL identifies a statistical relationship between the growth of cities and the spread of paved surfaces. // ORNL successfully demonstrates a technique to heal dendrites that formed in a solid electrolyte. // ORNL combines additive manufacturing with conventional compression molding.
The Landslide Atlas of Kerala sets a new standard for determining risk in a landslide-prone region and will help the residents and policymakers of the state make decisions to better mitigate life-threatening disasters.
Irvine, Calif., Jan. 18, 2021 — Future climate change will cause a regionally uneven shifting of the tropical rain belt – a narrow band of heavy precipitation near the equator – according to researchers at the University of California, Irvine and other institutions. This development may threaten food security for billions of people.
Argonne researcher Daniel Moberg has won a 2019 Cozzarelli Prize, awarded to the top scientific papers published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Testing microbial activity in soil columns helps researchers understand how carbon is stored in soils that are periodically waterlogged.
A study led by ecohydrologists at IUPUI is the first to show it’s possible to use satellite data to understand how fog reduction from climate change is harming vegetation in ecologically rare regions.
Hydrogeologist a collaborator on research, published in a special-edition journal, addressing need for conservation of springs in drying climate
Northern Arizona University professor Abe Springer, whose research focuses on springs and aquifers and their effects on surrounding ecosystems, contributed results and implications on springs as refugia from his research group’s springs ecohydrology research and helped develop a geomorphological-based classification system for springs ecosystems.
A group of 59 international scientists, led by researchers at Canada’s McMaster University, has uncovered new information about the distinct effects of climate change on boreal forests and peatlands, which threaten to worsen wildfires and accelerate global warming.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – One of the COVID-19’s more pleasant impacts has been stories of a…
“Geology is a 3D science, but everything we give to students is on a 2D piece of paper,” says University at Buffalo geologist Chris Lowry, creator of the Foldable Aquifer Project. “With the foldable aquifers, students don’t have to imagine what a 2D drawing looks like in 3D.”
Argonne researcher Audun Botterud co-authored a recent paper from the International Energy Agency on hydropower’s potential for integrating other renewables on the grid.
Mediterranean-type climates face immediate drops in rainfall when greenhouse gases rise, but this could be interrupted quickly if emissions are cut.
Using archives of satellite imaging data, a study in Frontiers in Earth Science has conducted the most in-depth study of China’s intertidal wetlands to date and found a 37.62% decrease in area between 1970 and 2015.
In a study published today in the journal Nature Communications, UNLV climate scientists and colleagues examined the rainfall history of Central America over the last 11,000 years. The results provide long-sought answers to what has been controlling rainfall in the region for several millennia.
A combination of climate change, extreme weather and pressure from local human activity is causing a collapse in global biodiversity and ecosystems across the tropics, new research shows.
Severe droughts happened simultaneously in the regions that supply water to Southern California almost six times per century on average since 1500, according to new University of Arizona-led research.
Twenty-eight countries in Africa could face water stress or scarcity by 2050, according to research led by faculty at Binghamton University, State University of New York.
