A global assessment of the impact of groundwater on ocean chemistry is important for understanding the weathering of rocks and its effects on climate — ScienceDaily

An invisible flow of groundwater seeps into the ocean along coastlines all over the world. Scientists have tended to disregard its contributions to ocean chemistry, focusing on the far greater volumes of water and dissolved material entering the sea from rivers and streams, but a new study finds groundwater discharge plays a more significant role […]

First of its kind mapping of most important places for freshwater, recreation and carbon storage provides tool for conservation decisions — ScienceDaily

To stop biodiversity loss, Canada recently committed to protecting 30% of its land and sea by 2030. But making conservation decisions about where to locate new protected areas is complicated. It depends on data both about biodiversity and about a range of benefits (e.g. freshwater, climate regulation, recreation) that people get from nature. Surprisingly, despite […]

Important milestone in the creation of a quantum computer — ScienceDaily

Quantum computer: One of the obstacles for progress in the quest for a working quantum computer has been that the working devices that go into a quantum computer and perform the actual calculations, the qubits, have hitherto been made by universities and in small numbers. But in recent years, a pan-European collaboration, in partnership with […]

Access to nature important for mental health during Covid lockdowns

People in European countries with the strictest COVID-19 lockdown policies were more likely to show symptoms of depression and anxiety, according to an international study investigating the impact of disconnecting from nature. Led by the Basque technology center AZTI, and involving the University of Exeter, the study built on pre COVID-19 evidence that access to […]
