The American Geophysical Union’s 2014 Fall Meeting in San Francisco wraps up today. We didn’t make it, but we did get a chance to talk to a few of the scientists about their posters and presentations in the weeks before the event. Here’s a roundup those stories:
The Nutrient Sensor Challenge aims to jump-start the next generation of accessible tools for measuring nitrogen and phosphorous pollution.
A section of Buffalo’s Scajaquada Creek is more impacted by agricultural runoff than sewer overflow, researchers find.
A study of a lake high in the Sierra Nevada mountains shows lake temperatures don’t always track closely with atmospheric temperatures.
A U.S. Geological Survey’s new and novel real-time groundwater quality monitoring program will help fill the gaps between the agency’s 10-year surveys.
Ontario groundwater researchers are investigating how a new generation of water quality sensors can move the science forward while cutting the labor back.
After the giant Rim Fire threatened San Francisco’s water supply, scientists are studying burned watersheds to learn more about water quality impacts.
