  • Fifty Years After a Blowout, This Natural-Gas Reservoir Is Still Contaminating the Local Groundwater

    The new study adds another scenario for regulators and citizens to consider: If a well has suffered a blowout, it may damage the reservoir in such a way that it continues to leak gases for decades.

  • Nitrate storage in unsaturated zone quantified

    To estimate nitrate stored in the unsaturated zone on a global scale between 1900 and 2000, the British Geological Survey (BGS) linked mathematical models of nitrate leaching from the base of the soil zone with estimates of groundwater recharge, unsaturated-zone porosity, and the depth to groundwater.

  • Groundwater maps could help South Africa prepare for safer fracking

    One major concern from fracking is that groundwater will be affected in the shale gas extraction process. But a groundwater vulnerability map could help assess these risks.
