Estimates 'Liquid Assets' of World's Water Budget. Many pressing questions about Earth’s climate revolve around water.

Estimates 'Liquid Assets' of World's Water Budget

With droughts and flooding an ongoing concern, people want to know how much water is on the move and where it is going. To help answer those questions, a new NASA study provides estimates for the global water cycle budget for the first decade of the 21st century, taking the pulse of the planet and setting a baseline for future comparisons. The water cycle is the catch-all phrase to describe the movement of water – in its different forms, e.g., liquid, gas and solid – around the planet. The Amazon River Flows Backwards, And Now Scientists Have Figured Out Why.

The Amazon once flowed in the opposite direction, from east to west.

The Amazon River Flows Backwards, And Now Scientists Have Figured Out Why

Reversing the direction of the Earth's largest river is no trivial thing, and geologists have pondered the cause for some time. In Earth and Planetary Science Letters The University of Sao Paulo's Dr Victor Sacek has demonstrated that nothing more than erosion is needed to explain this enormous shift. With the mighty Andes at the western end of the continent it seems logical that South America's rivers flow east. Alarm bells toll for human civilization as world's 12th largest mega-city to run out of water in just 60 days. Alemães criam dispositivo que leva chuva a regiões desérticas. Parece ficção científica, mas não é.

Alemães criam dispositivo que leva chuva a regiões desérticas

Uma fundação alemã chamada Desert Greening criou um dispositivo que, segundo ela, leva chuva a lugares que têm falta d'água. O projeto é inspirado no "cloudbuster", um dispositivo desenvolvido pelo cientista Wilhelm Reich na década de 1950 nos Estados Unidos. O sistema que é utilizado de forma semelhante aos para-raios, manipula o que Reich chama de "energia orgônica" para atrair nuvens e chuva num raio de 200 km². A partir desse conhecimento, o Desert Greening testou um dispositivo semelhante em uma região no interior da Argélia, na África, país muito quente e bastante árido. A tecnologia está sendo aplicada no país desde 2005. Un océan gigantesque à 640 km sous la surface de la Terre.

Des scientifiques travaillant à l’université Northwestern , aux Etats-Unis, ont apporté les preuves qu’il existait une immense quantité d’eau sous terre.

Un océan gigantesque à 640 km sous la surface de la Terre

Ce réservoir est emprisonné dans une cavité composée d’une roche sous haute pression nommée ringwoodite . Grâce à cette découverte, les chercheurs espèrent expliquer comment les océans se sont formés sur notre planète. L’équipe, dirigée par le minéralogiste Steven Jacobsen , a utilisé un ensemble de 2000 sismographes pour étudier la façon dont les ondes sismiques générées par les tremblements de terre bougeaient à travers l’intérieur de la Terre. La vitesse de ces vagues a changé en fonction des roches à travers lesquelles elles passent, et la ringwoodite mouillée a un effet particulier sur ces ondes. Et si l’eau sur Terre provenait d’un gigantesque réservoir souterrain ?

C’est en tout cas ce que pense l’équipe de chercheurs, après avoir découvert cet océan. Le parcours des ondes sismiques révèle la présence d’eau. Massive Ocean Discovered Towards The Earths Core! A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface.

Massive Ocean Discovered Towards The Earths Core!

Scientists discover an ocean 400 miles beneath our feet that could fill our oceans three times over. After decades of theorizing and searching, scientists are reporting that they’ve finally found a massive reservoir of water in the Earth’s mantle — a reservoir so vast that could fill the Earth’s oceans three times over.

This discovery suggests that Earth’s surface water actually came from within, as part of a “whole-Earth water cycle,” rather than the prevailing theory of icy comets striking Earth billions of years ago. As always, the more we understand about how the Earth formed, and how its multitude of interior layers continue to function, the more accurately we can predict the future.

Weather, sea levels, climate change — these are all closely linked to the tectonic activity that endlessly churns away beneath our feet. Scientists discover an ocean 400 miles beneath our feet that could fill our oceans three times over. Water Scarcity. Filtration Systems - LIFESAVER systems.

Since it is distilled twice, it can be said that it is pure water. The result was that we always observed beautiful crystals after giving good words, playing good music, and showing, playing, or offering pure prayer to water. On the other hand, we observed disfigured crystals in the opposite situation. Moreover, we never observed identical crystals. I published these results as photograph collections: “Messages from Water 1” (1999), “Messages from Water 2” (2002), “Messages from Water 3” (2004), and “Messages from Water 4” (2008). This world is filled with wonders and mysteries that get more incomprehensible if we try to think of a reason.

Thus, except for some of truly basic things, no one disagrees that there are still so many unknowns. Droughts In California, US Southwest Help Drain 17 Trillion Gallons Of Water From Colorado River Basin In Last Decade. The Colorado River basin has lost 17 trillion gallons of water in the past decade due to drought and ever-rising demand, according to data gathered from NASA satellites.

The disappearance threatens to jeopardize the long-term water supplies of the seven U.S. states and parts of Mexico served by the basin, researchers said. The study, released Thursday by NASA and the University of California at Irvine, is the first to quantify how much groundwater people in the Southwest are using during the region’s current drought, the Associated Press reported. “This is a lot of water to lose.

We thought that the picture could be pretty bad, but this was shocking,” Stephanie Castle, the study’s lead author and a water resource specialist at UC Irvine, said in a statement. Unlike the water in the rivers and lakes, whose levels are tracked and managed by the U.S.
