[1] Water quality Water chemistry and water quality are examined. Water quality parameters discussed include oxygen content, pH, nitrates, heavy metals, trace elements, hardness, odour and colour. Water quality standards from Europe and the USA, and their relation to human and aquatic health are examined. [2] DESIGN OF AN INDEX OF WATER QUALITY This paper describes the formulation of an Index of Water Quality to evaluate the level of pollution in fresh water. A Four‐Round Delphi equation, using a panel of seven … Continue reading “Latest News on Water Quality : April 21”

Aquifer overexploitation: what does it mean? Groundwater overexploitation and aquifer overexploitation are terms that are becoming common in water-resources management. Hydrologists, managers and journalists use them when talking about stressed aquifers or some groundwater conflict. Overexploitation may be defined as the situation in which, for some years, average aquifer abstraction rate is greater than, or close to the average recharge rate. [1] Response of well‐aquifer systems to Earth tides The water level in a well open to an artesian aquifer responds … Continue reading “Latest Research News on Aquifer: April 2020”

Biological Feedbacks in Global Desertification Studies of ecosystem processes on the Jornada Experimental Range in southern New Mexico suggest that longterm grazing of semiarid grasslands leads to an increase in the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of water, nitrogen, and other soil resources. Heterogeneity of soil resources promotes invasion by desert shrubs, which leads to a further localization of soil resources under shrub canopies. [1] Dynamic Causal Patterns of Desertification Using a meta-analytical research design, we analyzed subnational case studies (n … Continue reading “Latest Research on Desertification: March – 2020”

Evolution and assessment on China’s urbanization 1960–2010: Under-urbanization or over-urbanization? There has been a significant transformation in the urbanization and economic growth in post-reform China. The nature and degree of urbanization is a subject of some controversy. [1] URBANIZATION AND STREAM QUALITY IMPAIRMENT A study was conducted in the Piedmont province of Maryland to determine if a relationship exists between stream quality and the extent of watershed urbanization. During the first phase of the study 27 small watersheds, having similar characteristics … Continue reading “Latest News on Urbanization : March- 2020”

Radar hydrology: rainfall estimation Radar observations of rainfall and their use in hydrologic research provide the focus for the paper. Radar-rainfall products are crucial for input to runoff and flood prediction models, validation of satellite remote sensing algorithms, and for statistical characterization of extreme rainfall frequency. In this context we discuss the issues of radar-rainfall product development, and the theoretical and practical requirements of validating radar-rainfall maps and new radar technologies. We discuss a framework for reflectivity based rainfall estimation, … Continue reading “NEWS UPDATE ON RAINFALL : FEB – 2020”

Biological Feedbacks in Global Desertification Studies of ecosystem processes on the Jornada Experimental home in southern New Mexico suggest that longterm grazing of semiarid grasslands results in a rise within the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of water, nitrogen, and other soil resources. Heterogeneity of soil resources promotes invasion by desert shrubs, which results in an extra localization of soil resources under shrub canopies. within the barren area between shrubs, soil fertility is lost by erosion and gaseous emissions. This regeneration … Continue reading “News Update on Desertification Research: Jan – 2020”

ECONOMIC VALUATION OF FRESHWATER ECOSYSTEM SERVICES IN THE UNITED STATES: 1971–1997 The purpose of this paper is to provide ecologists and resource managers with a sense of where the economic science of ecosystem valuation has come from and where it might go in the future. To accomplish this, the paper provides a comprehensive synthesis of peer‐reviewed economic data on surface freshwater ecosystems in the United States and examines major accomplishments and gaps in the literature. Economic value has been assigned … Continue reading “Latest Research on Freshwater Ecosystem: Jan – 2020”

Global Biodiversity Conservation Priorities The location of and threats to diversity square measure distributed inconsistently, therefore prioritization is crucial to reduce diversity loss. to deal with this would like, diversity conservation organizations have planned 9 templates of worldwide priorities over the past decade. Here, we tend to review the ideas, methods, results, impacts, and challenges of those prioritizations of conservation follow at intervals the theoretical irreplaceability/vulnerability framework of systematic conservation coming up with. Most of the templates range extremely irreplaceable … Continue reading “Latest News on Biodiversity Conservation Research: Nov – 2019”

Global Consequences of Land Use Land use has usually been thought of an area environmental issue, however it’s changing into a force of worldwide importance. Worldwide changes to forests, farmlands, waterways, and air square measure being driven by the requirement to produce food, fiber, water, and shelter to over six billion folks. international croplands, pastures, plantations, and concrete areas have dilated in recent decades, in the middle of massive will increase in energy, water, and fertiliser consumption, beside appreciable losses … Continue reading “Latest News on Land Use Research: Oct – 2019”

Magnetic susceptibility of lake sediments Initial magnetic status in Flandrian sediments from Lough Neagh, N. Ireland, is shown to be a perform of the detrital titanomagnetite of the sediment. Parallel status changes square measure synchronous from core to core and so doubtless valuable for core correlation particularly in sight of the fast nondestructive techniques developed for mensuration. dynamical status within the lake sediments studied seems to be completely related to with variations within the quantity of inwashed inorganic allochthonous material … Continue reading “Latest Research on Lake Sediments: Oct – 2019”
