Five most significant findings of the week related to water resources

Five Most Significant Finding from Water Resources of the week



"Sediment cores taken from the Southern Ocean dating back 23 million years are providing insight into how ancient methane escaping from the seafloor could have led to regional or global climate and environmental changes, according to a new study."


"Scientists analyzing one of the largest genomic datasets of plants have discovered how the first plants on Earth evolved the mechanisms used to control water and 'breathe' on land hundreds of millions of years ago. The study has important implications in understanding how to plant water transport systems have evolved and how these might adapt in the future in response to climate change."


"A new analysis of the River Ganges in West Bengal, India, highlights how wastewater flowing into the river impacts its water quality, and how that influences shifts with seasons and tides."


"MIT researchers have developed a solar-powered desalination system that is more efficient and less expensive than previous methods. In this schematic, a confined water layer above the floating thermal insulation enables simultaneous thermal localization and salt rejection."


"Cuba strengthens capacities for the management of its water resources in the face of climate change
Cuba, a small island developing country, faces the threat of climate change, based on its peculiar environmental characteristics. Its geographical location, configuration, and morphology make it highly vulnerable to climate phenomena capable of compromising the availability of freshwater which, as recalled by Tatiana Villegas, Specialist of Culture and Science Programs of UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean:"

Five most innovative and sustainable water bottles

Cover Feature: Five most innovative water bottles selected by ODM V2 Five most innovative water bottles Water bottles are now becoming smart. Recently launched water bottles have the capability to track your hydration level and can remind you to drink water when the hydration level is below a predefined level. Some water bottles can either increase or decrease the temperature of the water in the container. Some alternatives come with blue tooth speaker/stirrer/fuser/wifi etc electronic devices. Some variation of smart water bottles has the ability to self-purify when needed. Here in this feature, we try to find the most innovative smart water bottles that are available on the eCommerce sites with the help of ODM. Now let us continue with the regular features : News about Sustainability Audi e-tron's used batteries in e-rickshaws by Nunam A new study finds inactive yeast could be effective as an inexpensive, abundant, and simple material for removing lead contamination from drinking

Five Most Popular English Movies (Fiction) on “Climate Change and its Impacts on Water Resources”

Students working in the field of climate change and water resource modeling often complain that they can’t see what they are predicting. They are confused about the reliability of their models and depend on some statistical indices to analyze the accuracy of their predictions. But if they want to have an idea about the reality of their predictions then they must watch the following five movies which simulate the future based on one or more climate change based impacts:.....

7 most recent application of GIS in the identification of suitable location for rain water harvesting

The water crisis has been rapidly increasing these days in many parts of the world which emphasize the importance of refinement in water management systems. Harvesting of rainwater(or rainwater harvesting(RWH)), which involves the collection and storage of rainwater for future use, is an area of increasing interest and one of the most suitable measures for ensuring water availability in the future days. The location of RWH is of utmost importance for the success of the water harvesting project. Locations for the construction of RWH structures like check dams, percolation tanks, bench terraces, contour ridges, and contour bunds can be determined by the application of Geographical Information System(GIS), Multi-Criteria Decision Making(MCDM), and different predictive models. Below are the seven recent case studies which demonstrate the procedure of location selection for RWH. 1) Case Study of Kiambu County-Kenya The ideal sites for five rainwater harvesting structures (bench terraces, ch
