As groundwater scientists we’ve known that groundwater can be surcharged with CO2, compared to atmospheric levels. We sometimes see bubbles escaping our samples. An interesting article on CO2 and groundwater quantifies just how much CO2 is released from groundwater depletion in the US and the world.
This pumped hydro project in southcentral Montana could provide electric utilities in the Pacific Northwest with a US billion-dollar, 400-megawatt facility that mimics both a battery and a fast-start natural gas-fired plant.
The British Geological Survey has released a global-scale quantification of nitrate stored in the vadose zone between 1900 and 2000. One of the study's conclusions is that areas identified as having high nitrate stores in the unsaturated zone are likely to exhibit delayed improvements in surface water and groundwater quality following reductions in nitrate input.
The National Ground Water Association recently released a series of white papers intended to advance the science of groundwater modeling. These papers address groundwater modeling topics such as uncertainty and model use by decision makers, among other timely topics for practitioners and consumers of groundwater models.
Understanding the effects of climate change is critical to the future of our industry. This report is the result of two years of effort by university faculty and students, state and federal agency researchers, non-profit organizations, resource managers, and citizens from across Montana.
Surface Water Ocean Topography
The first satellite dedicated to hydrology! By using microwaves and the principles of interferometry (signal phase analysis) it is able to measure from space the elevation of the earth’s surface waters to the nearest 1 cm.
