Plastic Pollution Plagues Raritan and Passaic Rivers

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Generations of Rutgers students and alumni have sung lovingly about the “Banks of the Old Raritan,” but the 90-mile-long waterway is awash in microplastic pollutants, a problem that plagues many freshwaters in New Jersey. In a recent study, researchers from Rutgers University–New Brunswick and other institutions found high levels of tiny pieces of plastic – often fragments from bigger items – in the Raritan and Passaic rivers. They later identified more than 300 organic chemical compounds that appeared to be associated with microplastic particles in the two rivers.

Prehistoric People Also Likely Disrupted by Environmental Change

Vanderbilt University

Prehistoric people of the Mississippi Delta may have abandoned a large ceremonial site due to environmental stress, according to a new paper authored by Elizabeth Chamberlain, a postdoctoral researcher in Earth and environmental sciences, and University of Illinois anthropologist Jayur Mehta. The study used archaeological excavations, geologic mapping and coring, and radiocarbon dating to identify how Native Americans built and inhabited the Grand Caillou mound near Dulac, Louisiana.

Asteroid Impact Grounded Bird Ancestors

Cornell University

An international team of scientists has concluded the asteroid that smashed into Earth 66 million years ago not only wiped out the dinosaurs, but erased the world’s forests and the species that lived in trees. The researchers say only small ground-dwelling birds survived the mass extinction, profoundly changing the course of bird evolution.

New Theory Finds “Traffic Jams” in Jet Stream Cause Abnormal Weather Patterns

University of Chicago

A study in Science offers an explanation for a mysterious and sometimes deadly weather pattern in which the jet stream, the global air currents that circle the Earth, stalls out over a region. Much like highways, the jet stream has a capacity, researchers said, and when it’s exceeded, blockages form that are remarkably similar to traffic jams—and climate forecasters can use the same math to model them both.

Bug-Borne Disease Monitoring Project Finds Deer Ticks on the Rise in Midwest

Indiana University

A new environmental monitoring project at Indiana University has found increased numbers of deer ticks, which often carry Lyme disease, in Southern Indiana. The presence of an organism that carries a specific disease-causing bacterium -- like deer ticks -- is commonly followed by a rise in the associated illness.
