The climate change-induced sea-level rise is posing significant challenges to coastal regions and small islands due to flooding waters and the inundation of low-lying land areas.
A new study has highlighted that flakes of paint could be one of the most copious types of microplastic particles in the ocean.
One of the worst droughts ever experienced by Texas occurred in 2011. The dry, arid conditions caused over $7 billion in crop and livestock losses, pushed power grids to the maximum, triggered wildfires, and decreased reservoirs to hazardously low levels.
A professor from Indiana University Bloomington has published a new paper on tropical cyclone precipitation extremes. The study offers data on inland flooding that could assist communities to be better prepared for the high amounts of rainfall caused by storms like Hurricane Ida in the United States.
The densely populated European part of Russia has gone through significant changes in recent decades due to economic and political transitions in the country.
Industries emit mercury into the air, which first enters the sea. Then, it makes its way into the food chain. Currently, a new study by the University of Basel has shown how the harmful substance enters seawater initially.
Scientists at Sandia National Laboratories and their collaborators have developed a new membrane, whose structure was inspired by a protein from algae, for electrodialysis that could be used to provide fresh water for farming and energy production.
Saltworks is pleased to announce the successful production of battery-grade lithium hydroxide from industrial wastewater.
A new study led by scientists at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, in collaboration with scientists at Princeton University, shows that the intensification of global hydrological cycle drives more ocean heat uptake into the deep ocean and moderates the pace of global warming.
Engineers at MIT have developed a new approach to removing lead or other heavy-metal contaminants from water, in a process that they say is far more energy-efficient than any other currently used system, though there are others under development that come close.
