Scientists at ESS, Swedish Water Research, ORNL use VISION to look at common contaminant for cleaner water applications

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Monika Hartl from the European Spallation Source is using neutron scattering at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Spallation Neutron Source to understand how plastic materials interact with the filters used to remove them from water. Through understanding these interactions, scientists can develop improved water filters that are better at purifying water and reducing water contaminants.

Can We Address Climate Change Without Sacrificing Water Quality?

Carnegie Institution for Science

Washington, DC--Strategies for limiting climate change must take into account their potential impact on water quality through nutrient overload, according to a new study from Carnegie's Eva Sinha and Anna Michalak published by Nature Communications. Some efforts at reducing carbon emissions could actually increase the risk of water quality impairments, they found.

Ingredients for water could be made on surface of moon, a chemical factory

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

When a stream of charged particles known as the solar wind careens onto the Moon's surface at 450 kilometers per second (or nearly 1 million miles per hour), they enrich the Moon's surface in ingredients that could make water, NASA scientists have found.
