Inside the Struggle to Designate Lake Erie's Water Impaired

Since the mid-1800s, Ohio has been a locus for industry . As the state cranked out steel, rubber, automotive parts, appliances, glassware, and refined oil, its economy grew—but pollution also became a serious problem . Factories dumped refuse into rivers and into Lake Erie, agricultural runoff ended up there, and city sewers also emptied into the lake. By the late 1960s, the Cuyahoga River had caught on fire, and the shores of Lake Erie were lined with dead fish as algal blooms flourished in its waters. The fiery river and the presumed “death†of Lake Erie prompted changes at both the local and national level. Leaders in Cleveland worked to improve the sewage system and monitor water quality more effectively.

Deltas in Decline: Mapping the Retreating Seafloor of the Mississippi River Delta

The rapid coastal land loss that the state of Louisiana has been experiencing over the past century has been reported on many times. We know that Louisiana loses about 1 football field's worth of land every hour, and that some of the first “climate change refugees†in the US are coming from Louisiana as towns like Isle de Jean Charles disappear into the water. New research from a Louisiana State University (LSU) team reveals that land loss is also occurring underwater. The disappearing seafloor in the Mississippi River Delta (MRD) is threatening various marine flora and fauna, and contributing to pollution in the Gulf of Mexico. The team mapped the shrinking seafloor in their study, detailing the effects the loss is having on the region.

Revolutionizing Conventional Solar Water Evaporation With Hydrogels

Saline water—classified as having more than 1,000 ppm of dissolved salts —can be made into freshwater through desalination. The process is typically fueled by the sun, or by some other power source heating the water; after the heat energy turns the saline water into steam, one captures the steam, and then distills it back into water as it cools and condenses. On a small scale, such as that of an individual-sized still, it's a simple, rain-inspired process, albeit a slow one. Large-scale methods are available, but to be practical, these technological processes have to remain on a massive scale, and any way you slice it, they are energy-intensive, costly, and require large-scale facilities.
