The journal is an international medium for publication of original research on the total environment with emphasis on changescaused by human activities. It is concerned with changes in the natural levels and distribution of chemical elements and theircompounds that may affect the well-being of the living world, or represent a threat to human health. Papers in applied environmentalchemistry and environmental health sciences are encouraged. Any changes in the landscape and total environmentcaused by man's activities are suitable topics. The scope is multidisciplinary and international.
Industrial pollution may seem like a modern phenomenon, but in fact, an international team of researchers may have discovered what could be the world's first polluted river, contaminated approximately 7,000 years ago.
Researchers from the University of Exeter and Plymouth Marine Laboratory have studied the findings from beach litter surveys carried out over a ten year period by volunteers for the Marine Conservation Society's Beachwatch ...
Light pollution is changing the day-night cycle of some fish, dramatically affecting their feeding behaviour, according to our recently published study.
A new study has found heightened concentrations of some common substances in drinking water near sites where hydraulic fracturing has taken place. The substances are not at dangerous levels and their sources are unclear, ...
Naturally occurring brines, not man-made fracking fluids, account for most of the wastewater coming from hydraulically fractured unconventional oil and gas wells, a new Duke University study finds.
In two new studies, researchers from across the country spearheaded by Duke University faculty have begun to design the framework on which to build the emerging field of nanoinformatics.
To conserve the planet's ecosystems and their diverse plant and animal species, human populations should consume less meat, according to Florida International University researchers.
UNSW Australia researchers have used new water-tracing technology in the Sydney Basin for the first time to determine how groundwater moves in the different layers of rock below the surface.
Radioactive particles can be detected deeper in the ground, thanks to the application of artificial intelligence technology developed by University of Stirling researchers.
New research shows how satellite images can be used to improve water quality monitoring campaigns in lakes and provide new insights into local, transient biological processes such as algal blooms.
