A class of powerful, invisible waves hidden beneath the surface of the ocean can shape the underwater edges of continents and contribute to ocean mixing and climate, researchers from The University of Texas at Austin have found. The scientists simulated ocean conditions in a laboratory aquarium and found that "internal waves" generate intense currents when traveling at the same angle as that of t ... Read More
A Note on the Effect of Wind Waves on Vertical Mixing in Franks Tract, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California
A one-dimensional numerical model that simulates the effects of whitecapping waves was used to investigate the importance of whitecapping waves to vertical mixing at a 3-meter-deep site in Franks Tract in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta over an 11-day period. Locally-generated waves of mean period approximately 2 s were generated under strong wind conditions; significant wave heights ranged from ... Read More
UAE. The Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company (ADSSC) is stepping up efforts to implement the Strategic Tunnel Enhancement Programme (STEP) during the next six years to establish a tunnel that will cater to the immediate, short and long-term needs of Abu Dhabi's wastewater and drainage issues.

This Weather Channel video talks about rip currents, and how they form in the coastal zone. Lots of people lose their lives every year from getting pulled out past the surf zone and drowning due to these natural beach features, so this is a good video to watch. ... Read More
Solar-powered water filtration systems are gaining traction, if recent developments are any indication. A University of Ottawa graduate studentâ€™s desalination method is grabbing attention, first by winning the Ottawa Venture Tech Challenge, a $10,000 award, and by beginning to pick up funding to pursue his idea. According to the Globe and Mail, Mohammed Rasool Qtaishat began his journey to Ottawa ... Read More
