Coverage of environmental indicators since July 6, 2020.

Stirling experts develop artificial intelligence to monitor water quality more effectively

"...Mr Werther said: "To understand the impact of climate change on freshwater aquatic environments such as lakes, many of which serve as drinking water resources, it is essential that we monitor and assess key environmental indicators, such as trophic status, on a global scale with high spatial and temporal frequency..."


The climate crisis hasn’t taken a break, and neither has the Muskoka Watershed Council.

"...The volunteer-based non-profit organization continued its efforts and advocacy on integrated watershed management and flood damage mitigation, algae monitoring, sustainability, shoreline renaturalization, lake health monitoring, watershed inventory project, and more..."


Nutrients in microalgae: An environmentally friendly alternative to fish

"...For their study, the researchers developed a model to determine location-specific environmental impacts. "One of the things we did was to compare the carbon footprint of nutrients from microalgae and fish. We also analysed how much both food sources increase the acidification and eutrophication in water bodies," explains Dr Toni Meier, head of the Innovation Office nutriCARD at MLU..."

Energy cycle assessment of bioethanol production from sugarcane bagasse by life cycle approach using the fermentation conversio

"...Moreover, by replacing fossil fuels with clean energies, more energy efficiency and less environmental consequences can be achieved because fossil fuels cause air pollution leading to acid rain, eutrophication, damage to forests, and harm to wildlife..."


Drivers of ecosystem vulnerability to Corbicula invasions in southeastern North America

"...Our models tested three competing hypotheses: (1) Native mussel declines are related to land use changes at the watershed level and subsequent Corbicula colonization is a result of an empty niche; (2) Corbicula abundance is one of the factors responsible for native mussel declines and has an interactive effect with land use change at the watershed level; (3) Native mussel declines and Corbicula success are both related to land use changes at the watershed level..."
