Good news! A team of scientists has created a way to harness clean renewable energy from estuaries through a three-atom-thick membrane.
Local officials of Haikou City believes that the 35 tons of dead fish found floating in the Hongcheng lake are most likely due to the difference of salinity between salt water and fresh water.
Water scarcity is not a 21st-century phenomenon. Though there have been many water-related problems linked to global warming, many places in the world have suffered without water even centuries ago. The Mayan civilization was one of them.
Algae blooms are expected to devastate lakes in the next decades, as a direct result of climate change and warming waters. This could be potentially devastating for local ecosystems and those that depend on these freshwater reservoirs.
Invasive species are escaping from fish and shellfish farms in Europe and being released inappropriately into rivers and lakes. As a result, alien fish are wreaking havoc on native populations.
Water in tanks and fountains throughout villages of Spain turned red following last autumn's rainfall but researches insist it's not a sign of the apocalypse.
To adapt to changing environments, fish have evolved with an enzyme researchers refer to as Cyp27c1, which is closely linked to vitamin A and known to promote good vision in low light.
Yale researchers have confirmed that removing natural gas from deep underground using hydraulic fracturing methods does not contaminate drinking water, although they also said that "geology across the country is very different."
Toxic stormwater has been linked to the death of coho salmon along the U.S. West Coast. Now, using a simply filtration system, researchers may be able to save them from extinction.
Harvard researchers examined how downstream effects of flooding for hydroelectric development would affect local communities in this area. They found that increased toxins could devastate food supplies.
For a change, researches examined beach sand instead of beach water and found a surprising amount of pathogens that endanger beach goers. Here's what regulartors should be doing in light of these findings.
Home owners in central Florida want to save water but also feel pressure to meet Home Owner's Association regulations. Here's a look at how much drinking water is used.
During the last Ice Age, massive slabs of ice covered much of North America, but new research now shows that calving icebergs resulted in a huge influx of freshwater that increased the production of the greenhouse gas, methane, in tropical wetlands.
A fleet of icebergs is probably not to blame for abrupt episodes of cooling in the North Atlantic over the past 440,000 years, according to new research.
