Good news! A team of scientists has created a way to harness clean renewable energy from estuaries through a three-atom-thick membrane.
Despite the rising sea levels, new model suggests an increase in the area of intertidal wetlands in the Hudson River in New York.
Beaver dams are helping restore natural ecosystems throughout the U.S. Essentially, a beaver dam blocks off water in one section of the stream, which then creates a pond or lake. Using this, researchers may have found a way to remove excess nitrogen from local estuaries.
University of New Hampshire researchers have discovered they can use the chemical signatures found in the inner ear bones of winter flounder to help them trace the fish to their estuaries – a critical part of remedying their population decline.
