Modern satellites can help us to monitor water quality in bodies of water. The world's second largest lake shows how this works.
Water is a finite resource, and you probably consume more than you think. Here are the basics you need to know for reducing your water footprint.
Researchers at Cornell University have developed nanoscale sensors that help breeders select water-efficient crops, enhancing their resilience against droughts caused by climate change.
Forecasts have been pointing out for years that water scarcity will become a problem. Here's one start-up's smart solution.
Much of the world is wracked by water scarcity. Can high tech nano-engineering provide surprisingly simple and cheap solutions?
Many innovative designs have experimented with producing clean water from contaminated or salt water. A new approach takes inspiration from mangrove trees.
Passive water harvesting technologies offer clear advantages in terms of power use, but are often limited in output. A new design aims to push them to their limits.
Over the last three decades, climate change, with decreasing snowfall and rising temperatures, is causing Himalayan glaciers to recede, putting entire livelihoods under threat. Sonam Wangchuk, an engineer from the arid Himalayan region of Ladakh, may just have the answer: artificial mini-glaciers in the shape of Tibetan temples.
