How to find and evaluate the groundwater ?

Long-term drought and improper maintenance of water resources have intensified the contradiction between the supply and demand of water resources. Groundwater is developed and utilized by more and more regions because of its excellent water quality and stable water quantity. Human beings have an increasing demand for groundwater. Therefore, how to evaluate groundwater resources is an urgent problem to be solved.

How to predict forest firea: a new method may be useful

Definition of forest fire prediction: with investigation and determination of some natural and human factors, scientific technologies and methods are used to predict and predict the possibility of forest fire, potential fire behavior, the difficulty of controlling forest fire, and the loss caused by the forest fire.

How can reduce the response of building structures to seismic excitations

Reinforced concrete (RC) is the most commonly used construction material used these days, primarily owning to its low cost, easy availability of materials, simpler execution without requirements of any special machineries or labour. Generally, the RC buildings are analyzed and designed such that, the moment resisting frame actions are developed in each member.

How can reduce the risk of wildfires

Wildfires are a phenomenon that can alter ecosystems, damage property and infrastructure, and harm the wellbeing of at-risk populations. This trend in larger, more severe wildfires escalates the need for improved wildfire prevention planning by land managers. Improved planning requires fire risk mapping to identify the most at risk areas. Fire risk mapping has been an ongoing area of research for decades but no agreed upon method has yet been developed.

Research News: The possible reasons of the coastline changing

The coast divides into three typescoast, lake bank, and riverbank. It is a waterfront zone formed by the action of waves, tides, and currents at the contact between water surface and land. The bank formed by the accumulation of many sediments is called the beach. The coastline is the boundary between land and sea. The demarcation of the coastline is defined by the elevation of the submerged surface of the normal high tide level, that is, the submerged surface is the sea area and the dry-out zone is the land area.

Impact of emission from a coal-fired power plant on air quality

Coal combustion has been increasing rapidly in much of Asia, including in China and India (IPCC, 2013). Fine particulate matter (PM2.5: particles with an aerodynamic diameter of ≤2.5 μm) emitted/formed from coal combustion are key outdoor air pollutants of great environmental concern because they have serious adverse effects on public health (IARC, 2013).

Research News: Finding Nemo's genes

An international team of researchers has mapped Nemo's genome, providing the research community with an invaluable resource to decode the response of fish to environmental changes, including climate change.

In a breakthrough study led by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (Coral CoE), researchers used high-tech sequencing tools to create one of the most complete genetic maps for the orange clownfish, a common reef inhabitant and star of the Disney movie, Finding Nemo.

Research News: Warming: Peatlands will store more carbon initially, but that will change

Peatlands are extremely effective at storing carbon, but an international study featuring a University of Queensland researcher has found climate change could stop that.

The group investigated how peatlands -- swamps and bogs with organic rich soils -- have responded to climate variability between 850 BCE and 1850 CE.

These are the peatlands of Moon Point on Queensland's Fraser Island.

Research News: See Beauty Through The Eyes Of A Master Cartographer

If you were to drop Dave Imus anywhere in the United States, he could likely point out something unique in the landscape around him.

This winding road through flat farmland, 30 miles outside of Eugene, Oregon, is no different.

“This spot has the unique characteristic in that you can see all five of Oregon’s highest snow peaks in the Cascade Range,” Imus said pointing to the mountain range obscured by clouds and distance. “One thing I’ve learned is that all landforms, regardless of how subtle they are, have their own beauty and character.”
