Researcher looking for clues in the mystery of the Grand Canyon’s water supply

Northern Arizona University

Research technician Natalie Jones is the lead author on a paper that looked at how scientists model the vulnerability of karst formations around the Grand Canyon. Along with professor Abe Springer, she created a new model that can give land and water managers more information so they can better protect the water system.

Newswise: Major NSF-sponsored grant will help researchers discover ways to improve urban sustainability

Major NSF-sponsored grant will help researchers discover ways to improve urban sustainability

Iowa State University

A new $2.5 million grant will help an interdisciplinary team of researchers analyze innovative approaches to improving urban sustainability. The team will study various approaches to bolstering local food production in Des Moines and the surrounding area and how those approaches could affect nutrition, waste and environmental impacts.

Less Severe Cases of Diarrheal Illness Can Still Lead to Child Deaths, Research Shows

University of Maryland School of Medicine

Diarrheal diseases are a leading cause of death for young children, accounting for nine percent of all deaths worldwide in children under five years of age, with most occurring in children under two years of age. Now, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) found that even milder cases of diarrheal diseases can lead to death in young children.
