When Income Goes Up, Does Pollution Go Down?

Alexandra Branscombe, Freelance Writer

From Eos.org: Research Spotlights—Scientists look at a possible connection between increased wealth and decreased water pollution in Louisiana. Does economic development always damage water quality, or does increased income actually help decrease pollution? Researchers have been studying the question.... more

New Ground-Penetrating Radar Method Shows Promise in Aquifer

Sarah Stanley, Freelance Writer

From Eos.org: Research Spotlights—  Recent advances in ground-penetrating radar data analysis could help reveal aquifer structure in unprecedented detail. The fine-scale structure of an aquifer is difficult to determine, posing challenges for scientists trying to predict underground water flow and transport..... more

Boulders Limit Transport of Sand and Gravel in Steep Rivers

Alexandra Branscombe, Freelance Writer

From Eos.org: Research Spotlights—Mountain rivers and streams actively reshape landscapes by eroding material from uplands and depositing it in lowlands. Scientists can now predict this transport in very steep streams. As streams and rivers flow, they carry sediments of various sizes, from fine sand.... more

A generalized threshold model for computing bedload grain size distribution

Editors’ Highlight— The paper provides new views on fractional bedload transport. Particle size segregation and partial mobility affect bedload transport significantly, but the processes are so complicated and intertwined that little progress has been accomplished in the quantitative assessment of bedload.... more
