Hidden nitrate pollution beneath our feet threatens water supplies worldwide
Hidden nitrate pollution beneath our feet threatens water supplies worldwide
Researchers have found vast quantities of nitrate are stored in the rocky layer between our soils and the water table Researchers have quantified for the first time the long term threat to global drinking water posed by agricultural pollution trapped in the rocks beneath our feet. In a paper published , researchers from the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Lancaster University show that vast quantities of nitrate are stored in the rocky layer between our soils and the water table.

Fully integrated circuits printed directly onto fabric
Fully integrated circuits printed directly onto fabric
Researchers have successfully incorporated washable, stretchable and breathable electronic circuits into fabric, opening up new possibilities for smart textiles and wearable electronics. The circuits were made with cheap, safe and environmentally friendly inks, and printed using conventional inkjet printing techniques.  Turning textile fibres into functional electronic components can open to an entirely new set of applications from healthcare and wellbeing to the Internet of Things.

Lancaster University takes a leading role in a £4.1M flooding research programme
Researchers from Lancaster University will tackle one of the most pressing problems to face water science in a generation. After the devastation of the 2007 floods, the UK Government's "Pitt review" triggered initiatives designed to introduce “green”, or natural, flood mitigation measures upstream of the affected communities, rather than relying solely on downstream engineering solutions.

’Scars’ left by icebergs record West Antarctic ice retreat
Thousands of marks on the Antarctic seafloor, caused by icebergs which broke free from glaciers more than ten thousand years ago, show how part of the Antarctic Ice Sheet retreated rapidly at the end of the last ice age as it balanced precariously on sloping ground and became unstable.

Herbivores help protect marine ecosystems from climate change
Herbivores help protect marine ecosystems from climate change
Plant-eating critters are key to helping ecosystems survive global warming, offering some hope for a defence strategy against climate change. An international research team created miniature marine ecosystems and tested how they fared in warmer conditions. They found that in the hottest conditions, ecosystems that included limpets - voracious snail-like marine herbivores - fared the best.

Ocean critters emit greenhouse gas
Scientists have shown that ocean clams and worms are releasing a significant amount of potentially harmful greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. The team, from Cardiff University and Stockholm University, have shown that the ocean critters are producing large amounts of the strongest greenhouse gases - methane and nitrous oxides - from the bacteria in their guts.
