" I really enjoyed reading the news in several media about an incredible discovery: Apparently there are aquifers below the soil of Africa ………………..!!!!!! and there is WATER in the aquifers…..Who would have suspected that?"
That short email, sent to me and a hundred or so other hydrogeologists last week, oozed...no, gushed like a spring from a karst aquifer - with sarcasm from a h ... read more >>
Warming hole delayed climate change over eastern United States — Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Climate scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have discovered that particulate pollution in the late 20th century created a "warming hole" over the eastern United States—that is, a cold patch where the effects of global warming were temporarily obscured. ... read more >>
The empirical research in this paper is based on an analysis of both EU and local policy documents, as well as more than forty in-depth interviews in five different river basin districts, and shows that for various reasons, the degree of mainstreaming that has taken place differs widely. The authors conclude that timely incentives and clear guidance will be necessary to ensure progress is made by ... read more >>
The National Ground Water Association reiterated today its call for additional peer-reviewed study of the potential for hydraulic fracturing to contaminate groundwater while also applauding new federal efforts to coordinate relevant research. ... read more >>
New AWI Research Confirms: Climate Models Cannot Reproduce Temperatures Of The Last 6000 Years | Watts Up With That?
One of the main points of criticism of the CO2-dominated climate models is that they fail to reproduce the temperature fluctuations over the last 10,000 years. This surprises no one as these models assign scant climate impact to major factors, i.e. the sun. As numerous IPCC-ignored studies show, the post-Ice Age temperature curve for the most part ran synchronously with solar activity fluctuation ... read more >>
GLOBE-Net. April 12, 2012 – Vancouver may be famous for its rain and grey skies, but residents should brace themselves for more.
According to a new study from Metro Vancouver, the inter-municipal administrative body formerly known as the Greater Vancouver Regional District, more rain, higher temperatures, new invasive insects and plants and higher sea levels can be expected by 2050. ... read more >>
PRESS RELEASE: 26th March 2012, Newcastle University >> A project running almost 10,000 climate simulations on volunteers’ home computers has found that a global warming of three degrees Celsius by 2050 is ‘equally plausible’ as a rise of 1.4 degrees. ... read more >>
In this work, two groundwater inventory management schemes with multiple users in a
dynamic game-theoretic structure was investigated: (i) under the centralized management scheme, users are allowed to pump water from a common aquifer with the supervision of a social planner, and (ii) under the decentralized management scheme, each user is allowed to pump water from a common aquifer making usage ... read more >>
A paper published in the journal Science in August 1981 made several projections regarding future climate change and anthropogenic global warming based on manmade CO2 emissions. As it turns out, the authors' projections have proven to be rather accurate - and their future is now our present. ... read more >>
Heavy rains soaked northeastern Australia in February and March 2012, with some areas receiving more than 1,500 millimeters (59 inches) of precipitation. This image shows rainfall, as observed by the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), over parts of Queensland, Northern Territory, and the Gulf of Carpentaria. ... read more >>
