50-year fertilizer study shows mixed results on soil quality

A new report authored by researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln suggests that the use of inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus for fertilization improves crop yields, but can have negative impacts on soil quality, the  American Society of Agronomy has reported . A study of crop lands in western Kansas has shown that inorganic fertilization increases organic carbon stocks while damaging soil’s structural quality. Researchers collected soil samples from experimental fields fertilized with various amounts of inorganic fertilizers to determine how different nutrient levels might impact soil quality. The results showed that applying nitrogen and phosphorus at high rates can expedite soil erosion and cause other structural issues.

Using LiDAR in the Hunt for an Invasive Species in Yellowstone Lake

The National Park Service (NPS) has been fighting an invasion for more than 20 years: the invasion of Yellowstone Lake by lake trout. This invasive species has been hurting the lake's ecosystem, threatening the survival of native species such as Yellowstone cutthroat trout and the overall health of the lake . As lake trout outcompete the easier-to-catch cutthroat trout, bird populations surrounding the lake diminish, and even grizzly bears in the area resort to other food supplies. The lake trout is a wily predator, sometimes consuming young cutthroat trout. However, it's also a cunning prey animal; it's difficult for other predators to catch lake trout, in large part because they spend most of their lives in deep, murky waters.

Seagliders Confirm Growing Dead Zone in Gulf of Oman

Scientists have been aware of an anoxic “dead zone” in the Gulf of Oman for some time, but recent research from the University of East Anglia (UEA) has confirmed that the situation is more advanced—and a more serious environmental disaster—than previously thought. Now, thanks to the ongoing dives of Seagliders, underwater robots armed with sensors, the UEA team has much more data and detail about the anoxic region and its spread. Many regions of the Gulf were previously inaccessible to researchers due to geopolitical tensions and safety concerns arising from problems like piracy. However, for Seagliders, the water is fine. Around the size of a human, the gliders can stay on task in the ocean for months at a time, reaching depths of up to 1,000 meters.
