Climate change leading to water shortage in Andes, Himalayas

Ohio State University

Climate change could have devastating effects on vulnerable residents in the Andes mountains and the Tibetan plateau, according to researchers at The Ohio State University who have been studying glaciers in those areas for decades. Their findings—that glaciers in both parts of the world are melting more rapidly than at any point in the last 10,000 years—mean the water supply in parts of Peru, Pakistan, China, India and Nepal will decline, soon.

Driving heart health

Wayne State University Division of Research

In September 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded funds to 28 state and local health departments across the United States to design, test and evaluate new, innovative approaches to address these significant health problems. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) was one of 21 state health departments to receive this funding. As part of this, a new partnership has been forged with Wayne State University researchers who will directly work with MDHHS in their efforts to prevent and manage cardiovascular health and diabetes.

Ohio State University

This week at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) fall meeting in Washington, D.C, a team of scientists from The Ohio State University shared early results from a trio of studies that aim to improve models designed to guide agricultural practices for reducing the risk of nitrogen and phosphorous farm runoff. Such runoff leads to the growth of toxic algae in waterways.

Narrowing the universe in the search for life

Ohio State University

Humankind’s exploration of space has for years pondered one central question: Is there another world somewhere in the universe where human beings could survive? And as astrophysicists and astronomers have searched for the answer, they’ve traditionally looked for a world that has water. But Wendy Panero, professor of earth sciences at The Ohio State University, has developed a new way of thinking about a planet’s habitability. What if, she wondered, the answer to habitability lies within the way rocks and water interact?
