Recent research suggests that some coral may be able to survive and thrive despite climate change, especially with some human assistance.
Integration of remote sensing technology into undergraduate education can help society solve environmental problems faster.
Water pollution is not a niche concern of scientists but is instead a concern for all people, regardless of proximity to water.
New meta-analysis paper pulls together data from 264 studies to explore ways of balancing forest biodiversity and wood production interests.
While not receiving as much attention as warming trends, marine cold spells can strongly impact marine life too, in complex ways.
“Our goal is to quantify the movement towards a tipping point, measured as a loss of resilience in the system. Resilience is essentially how quickly a system recovers from perturbations, in this case droughts for example.”
The first global river delta migration database can help coastal populations adapt as rivers change due to climate and anthropogenic effects.
The influence of bacteria on carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus cycling processes in lakes and their influence on lake health is explored.
An unusually rainy and cold year changed the phytoplankton makeup of one Michigan lake. Climate change makes similar changes more likely in the future.
A warming climate and low-oxygen from Chesapeake Bay will reduce oxygen more than nutrient reductions will increase it in the Chester River.
Fecal bacteria contaminates Texas beaches. Sea level rise makes it worse.
Primary production shifted and trout fled for deeper water during intense wildfire smoke periods, even far from a fire.
Algal blooms showed up unexpectedly in Lake Superior. Researchers pieced together their cause and are on the lookout for future blooms.
Rapid, anthropogenic pressures are changing the face of one of Africa’s oldest, most diverse lakes, biodiversity & food security are at risk.
Ancient lakes have weathered drastic changes for millions of years. Rapid, recent changes make the future uncertain.
Major snowmelt and runoff events in central Canada carry stormwater contamination to the South Saskatchewan River.
The ongoing deployment of a buoy in Acadia National Park’s Jordan Pond protects an important resource and offers new insights.
A new approach to modeling and river management that embraces change for a warming world.
Recent work reveals that the asymmetrical nature of climate change is forcing species movement and resulting in “rewired” food webs in lakes.
Shackelton Point data includes records on various lake aspects that go back 50 years or more, making lake trends emerge more clearly to researchers.
