    Do you enjoy using fresh herbs when you cook? If so, you probably know how expensive they can be. What if fresh herbs were as close as your garden? Herbs are easy to grow and aren’t fussy. You may be surprised to find that herbs make great container plants and are a great alternative to flowering annuals. So, why should you replace your flowering annuals with herbs? Herbs need less water and fertilizer than flowers and are more resistant to insect pests. Their varying leaf colors and shapes aren’t just edible, they are beautiful too! Herbs can handle the extremes of winter and summer…

I didn't read the rest because my objections to Piper's unsubstantiated, biased and inflammatory analysis opinions were coming much faster than insights or useful ideas. Allow me to explain.Piper is a postcolonial geographer, which puts her…

As many as 10 million Americans are supplied by water systems, particularly those using groundwater, in which strontium levels may cause health problems, according to the agency’s analysis. Draft standards for allowable levels of strontium in drinking water will be published within 24 months. The EPA is required every five years to publish a list of contaminants that are known to occur in drinking water but are not…

Forests are stripped and debris is dumped into streams and valleys, leaving behind a ravaged landscape. It`s partly responsible for the loss of jobs in the coal industry since it requires only a handful of workers to operate the huge machines involved. Now we`re learning that the process, which has been touted by advocates as cleaner and safer than below-ground coal mining,...

  • Getting the salt out: Electrodialysis can provide cost-effective treatment of salty water from fracked wells

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:14 am
    The boom in oil and gas produced through hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is seen as a boon for meeting U.S. energy needs. But one byproduct of the process is millions of gallons of water that's much saltier than seawater, after leaching salts from rocks deep below the surface. Now researchers say they have found an economical solution for removing the salt from this water.

Scientists are reporting that a wall of water up to nine meters (30 feet) high surged onto Hawaiian shores about 500 years ago. A 9.0-magnitude earthquake off the coast of the Aleutian Islands triggered the mighty wave, which left behind up to nine shipping containers worth of ocean sediment in a sinkhole on the island of…

As people try to combat the natural water hardness of Arizona water supplies using conventional water softeners, increased discharge levels of salt are introduced into sewers, treatment plants and, at times, into groundwater aquifers through recharge. The increased salinity negatively impacts the environment and adds significant costs to our treatment processes. The predominant residential method of combating hard water is water softening through ion…

I didn't read the rest because my objections to Piper's unsubstantiated, biased and inflammatory analysis opinions were coming much faster than insights or useful ideas. Allow me to explain.Piper is a postcolonial geographer, which puts her…

    22 Oct 2014 | 7:56 am
    If people were water–or actions of it, for that matter–I would be a wave, and you, a ripple. I’d crash with the shore countless times, but never quite touch it; I would hold love so, so close, but never quite grasp it. And you: you’d be fleeting, but touching– always making echoes through the lives of others, close, but not too close; ephemeral, much like the shoreline I could never hold. And if by a twist of fate, the wave and the ripple meet, one would simply win over the other; we would never be complementary. But that I crash with you, and that you touch me,…

  • Thirsty trees and water yields: Vegetation, water and a changing climate

    Waiology
    22 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    By Cate Macinnis-Ng Future climate projections predict that some parts of New Zealand will become drier with droughts being more severe and frequent. This is particularly true for the north and eastern parts of the country. We know that soil moisture availability will decline due to reductions in rainfall and increased evaporative demand will lead to faster transfer of water back to the atmosphere. However, we do not yet fully understand the impact of climate change on water balances of vegetated catchments. In forested areas, a large proportion of rainfall (up to 90% or more) is lost back to…
  • Tussocks – a fundamental component of New Zealand’s water cycle

    Waiology
    19 Oct 2014 | 4:18 pm
    By Alice Trevelyan, Sarah Mager and Peter Wilson The significance of fog deposition to increased water yield has been contested for many years, especially across the Otago region. Determining the importance of the role of tussock grasslands in the hydrological system is becoming increasingly important, especially over the summer periods when the demand for water for irrigation, recreation and domestic use is at its peak.  Retaining tussock headwaters for fog capture may protect rivers from potentially running dry in the lower reaches during summer. Protecting our waterways from the headwater…
  • A pluvial and fluvial country

    Waiology
    13 Oct 2014 | 1:44 pm
    By Daniel Collins As Sir Geoffrey Palmer once remarked, New Zealand is a pluvial[1] country. It rains a lot. On average, 2.3 metres of water falls across New Zealand each year, or 610,000 million m3 in volumetric terms (about 10 times the volume of Lake Taupo). This is more than most countries, but not all. Values vary from source to source, but according to FAO data[2] the wettest country is Sao Tome and Principe (3.2 m/year), the driest is Egypt (51 mm/year), and our trans-Tasman neighbours receive 534 mm/year. But these long-term, national averages hide a lot of variability. In recent…
  • Weather and water in New Zealand – where do our storms come from?

    Waiology
    12 Oct 2014 | 1:00 pm
    By James Renwick New Zealand sits astride the middle latitudes in western Pacific Ocean, exposed to wind and weather from all quarters. Yet we do not usually receive our rain and storms from all quarters. Because the flow of the winds is normally from the west, most of the rain New Zealand experiences arrives from somewhere to the west or the southwest of us. Combine that with our mountainous topography (which acts as a barrier to the westerly winds) and you have a recipe for lots of rain in western regions and relatively dry conditions in the east. The strength of the Southern Hemisphere…

Degraded water quality and its link to dairying in particular is a case in point. Examining the policy and the policy-relevant science are important in order to resolve these issues, and are frequent topics here at Waiology (including last year’s series on water quality) but sometimes it’s also important to take a step back.

The next day, Politifact Florida called Sink’s statement “False.” It turned out to be “false” only in the sense that Scott…

    Thanks to Kay McDonald for writing about a report from the South Dakota Department of Agriculture. They concluded that agricultural production is more important there than in any other state, amounting to 11.9% of their gross state product. For Florida, they say that agricultural production is only 0.6%(!) of the state’s domestic product (p. 41). (Throwing in “food manufacturing” would still bring it up to only 1.38% of the Florida economy.) One of my themes is that Florida agricultural interests use water, create water pollution, and have an influence in water…
