Water Quality Studied in Areas of Unconventional Oil and Gas Development, Including Areas Where Hydraulic Fracturing Tec

Posted By Marzieh in Water Quality

Domestic oil and gas production and clean water are critical for economic growth, public health, and national security of United States. The following article analyzes the surface-water and groundwater quality in areas of unconventional gas and oil production. http://pubs.usgs.gov -

Top 5 Most Vulnerable U.S. Cities to Hurricanes

Posted By Marzieh in Miscellaneous

Many American coastal cities are essentially sitting ducks to hurricanes, with millions of Americans living at water's edge, exposed to high winds and flooding. The following is a look at the Top 5 most vulnerable cities to a landfalling hurricane. http://www.climatecentral.org -

How Much Water is Available?

Posted By Marzieh in Hydrology

Climate change will impact water availability. Projections indicate a steady increase in temperature progressing through the 21st century, generally resulting in snowpack reductions, changes to the timing of snowmelt, altered streamflows, and reductions in soil moisture, all of which could affect water management, agriculture, recreation, hazard mitigation, and ecosystems across the nation. http://www.usgs.gov -

What Water Worries Will Climate Change Bring?

Posted By Marzieh in Planning and Management

Arguably, the most important impacts of climate change – including those to ecosystems, agriculture, energy, and industry – will be tied to changes in water availability, especially as the world becomes increasingly water-stressed. It's crucial that water managers understand the likely impacts of climate change, so that they can plan for new conditions and challenges. http://www.usgs.gov -

Is California preparing for climate change?

Posted By Marzieh in Planning and Management

A majority of California's coastal planners and resource managers now view the threats from climate change as sufficiently likely that practical steps on the ground need to be taken to protect against growing threats, according to results from a new survey published by Stanford University's Center for Ocean Solutions (COS) and the California Sea Grant. http://phys.org -

Groundwater Quality in the San Fernando–San Gabriel Groundwater Basins, California

Posted By Marzieh in Planning and Management

Groundwater provides more than 40 percent of California's drinking water. To protect this vital resource, the State of California created the Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program. The Priority Basin Project of the GAMA Program provides a comprehensive assessment of the State's groundwater quality and increases public access to groundwater-quality information. http://pubs.usgs.gov -

Analysis of Speed of Greenland Glaciers Gives New Insight for Rising Sea Level

Posted By Marzieh in Hydrology

Researchers determine that although glaciers continue to increase in velocity, the rate at which they can dump ice into the ocean is limited. http://www.nsf.gov -
