A new method standardizes freshwater lake measurements and shows they are losing a fifth of their inflow to evaporation.
A new analysis suggests that models do not accurately capture how fresh Arctic surface waters mix with deeper waters, contributing to underestimation of Arctic surface freshening.
Meet the international researchers who draw on both academic training and cultural experience to help Indigenous communities protect water, restore ecosystems, and sustain traditional resources.
Researchers use a packer system to study the microbial communities living in waters sampled from deep, uncontaminated peridotite aquifers.
A new study explores a possible proxy for seasonal freshwater input that could elucidate changes in alpine snowpack as the planet warms.
A new meta-analysis finds evidence that adding fresh organic material can increase decomposition rates, but when and why that happens remain unclear.
Climate change is driving an increase in catastrophic wildfires; consumers see, smell, and taste the effects in their water. Water utilities must prepare for worse times ahead.
Aside from captivating our senses, geysers have much to tell us about subsurface fluids, climate change effects, and the occurrence and limits of life on Earth and elsewhere in the solar system.
The hydraulic connection between a sinkhole and a natural spring—the longest and largest yet documented—could help reduce the guesswork in mapping karst aquifers.
