Thousands of tiny silvery fish are washing up dead along the waterways of the north Oregon coast - namely around the coast town of Seaside. The hundreds-of-thousands of fish reportedly died trying to swim up the Necanicum River, coming in with the tide only to get stranded shore-side and die.
The Colorado River basin is drying up. According to data recently released by NASA, the basin has lost nearly 53 million acre feet of freshwater since 2004, taking away far more water than the region can hope to refill.
Experts have found evidence of ancient pools of water untouched since Earth's earliest years. These primordial oases could provide researchers clues about our planet's earliest forms of life, serving as windows for peering into the dawn of creation.
Experts have been using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to take closer looks at potentially Earth-like exoplanets. But in searching for traces of water vapor, they've come up dry.
Irrigation systems are essential for maintaining food production in Africa. However, compared to the developed worlds, African farmers have barely any water access. Now researchers are warning that some deprived parts of the continent are due for even more water scarcity in the wake of climate change.
Researchers have found that the beef industry alone is around 10 times more damaging to the environment that any other meat production, contributing gas emissions, water consumption and land wear.
The gullies that crisscross the surface of Mars were not carved out by running water, but dry ice, in fact, according to new research.
A new study of the flow of water around China's many provinces has revealed an alarming disparity in access. Climate change concerns have the environmentally conscious country already trying to balance this water wealth, but researchers are suggesting that there is a better way.
A new riparian habitat along the Rio Grande just outside Las Cruces, New Mexico, has been established, and a dedication ceremony held Monday celebrated the move, which aims to restore native vegetation to the area.
Scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are beginning to understand water's complex properties, particularly the mysterious low temperature "no man's land" - an insight that will help them better understand water's behavior at different states of matter.
Duke Energy, in agreement with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, announced Monday that it will pay all cleanup costs associated with the recent Dan River spill.
Experts are warning that the new Arctic shipping routes that have opened up as ice-ways continue to melt create new opportunities for invasive marine and insect life to spread further north.
Scientists recently discovered water in Moon rocks, and through chemical analysis they found that the amount of water in the Moon's rocky interior actually varies regionally - revealing clues about how water originated and was redistributed on the lunar surface.
An erupting volcano covered in a large sheet of glacial ice may have created large lakes, which could have remained long enough to have hosted life, according to a new study.
