A new study performed by the Newcastle University and the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi measured metal and antibiotic resistance in sediments from the Ganges and Yamuna Rivers in India and streams in the River Tyne catchment.
According to a new study performed by the researchers at the Wisconsin–Madison University, removing air pollution emissions from energy-related activities in the United States would help avoid over 50,000 premature deaths annually and offer over $600 billion in benefits every year from avoided illness and death.
Plastic pollution is a significant universal problem but grasping the scale of the issue could be difficult. In a recent study performed, scientists from the University of Tsukuba have come up with a novel technique for mapping plastic litter across rivers.
A new study has shown that farmlands present throughout Europe are possibly considered the greatest global reservoir of microplastics as a result of the high concentrations found in fertilizers that are derived from sewage sludge.
Earth system scientists at the University of California, Irvine and other institutions have drawn the clearest line yet connecting consumers of agricultural produce in wealthier countries in Asia, Europe and North America with a growth in greenhouse gas emissions in less-developed nations, mostly in the Southern Hemisphere.
Researchers claim that replacing meat products with a microbial protein - a meat alternative produced in fermentation tanks - could reduce deforestation by 50% by the year 2050.
The University of Surrey’s leading sound artist, Professor Tony Myatt, has produced a new, state-of-the-art sound and light installation featuring recordings of the elusive blue whale to draw attention to the significance of sound for ocean inhabitants, and the devastating impact sound pollution can have on marine life.
Shocking new figures which reveal that most of the UK suffers from air pollution above levels recommended by the World Health Organization show why it is imperative that action is taken immediately, the chief executive of a fuel technology company which is helping to tackle the problem said today.
According to a new study performed, if climate change continues to be persistent, life in Earth’s oceans could experience mass destruction—a loss in biodiversity that could compete with the planet’s past great extinctions.
A team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota has significantly improved the performance of numerical predictions for agricultural nitrous oxide emissions. The first-of-its-kind knowledge-guided machine learning model is 1,000 times faster than current systems and could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
