The Watermark Soil Moisture Sensors is an established method of tracking soil moisture trends in crops, vineyards, or other areas where moisture level is a concern. Place sensors in the upper and lower thresholds of the root zone, in turf, or in other growing media. Reads moisture from 0 (saturated) to 200 (dry) centibars.

Closer to the Midwest, we look at surface mining impacts on Appalachian streams , plastics in the Great Lakes , and wildlife returning to Michigan’s Rouge River .Read More
The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents.
Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river.
An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.Read More
The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use.
Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.Read More
