The underwater eruption of Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha‘apai sent megatons of water vapor into the stratosphere, contributing to an increase in global warming over the next 5 years.
U.S. Public Water Supply Is a Local Source of Phosphorus Pollution
Excess phosphorus may reach U.S. rivers, lakes, and groundwater through water main leaks and outdoor water use.
Silicate Weathering Throttles the Global Thermostat
The natural breakdown of some rocks sucks carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Knowing how quickly it happens could help scientists engineer solutions to the climate crisis.
Confronting Water Use and Heat Exposure in Urban Sustainability
A framework is proposed for urban forest management to mitigate heat exposure, lessen drought issues, and conserve water use for urban heat mitigation and resilience in environmentally stressed cities.
