A new computer algorithm developed at Stanford University is enabling scientists to use satellite data to determine groundwater levels across larger areas than ever before.
Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory introduced a method that overcomes the computational challenge of simulating subsurface phenomena that occur at both the scale of tens to hundreds of microns-the size of ...
In search of ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, engineers are investigating the feasibility of sequestering carbon dioxide in saltwater aquifers deep underground. New Penn State research suggests that cracks in abandoned ...
More than half of the streamflow in the Upper Colorado River Basin originates as groundwater, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey study published today in the journal Water Resources Research.
Researchers at the University of Bergen (UiB) have identified PET scanning as an effective tool for improved oil production and CO2 storage.
Characterising flood behaviour for any river in the world is now becoming a possibility, according to new research from the University of Bristol published this month in Water Resources Research.
Rainfall and groundwater are crucial for crops in West Africa, yet agriculture may make droughts worse and lead to crop failure, according to a study co-authored by a UBC researcher.
If you've ever floated through a cold patch of water while swimming in the ocean, you've experienced a phenomenon called submarine groundwater discharge (SGD).
Mountain pine beetle populations have exploded over the past decade due to warmer temperatures and drier summers, and these insects have infected and killed thousands of acres of western pine forests. Researchers have predicted ...
A global flood hazard model, created by researchers at the University of Bristol, is helping developing countries to reduce the risks posed by flooding.
