According to project manager Martin Quinger, from the German federal institute for geoscience and natural resources (BGR), it’s a substantial body of water. “The amount of stored water would equal the current supply of this area in northern Namibia for 4...

It is confirmation that water has played its part in sculpting not only this huge equatorial bowl but by implication many of the other landforms seen on the planet. “For decades, we have speculated and hypothesized that the surface of Mars was carved by water, but this is the first time where you can see the remnant...

Drinking a litre of mineral water every day can prevent cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s sufferers by removing aluminium from their bodies, a new study has found. British researchers found drinking silicon-rich mineral water “significantly reduced” the levels of neurotoxin aluminium in the body. Aluminium has long been linked to the development of Alzheimer’s but no scientific relationship...

Researchers have some information on the movements of these neonates from strandings and bycatch, but those first few years in the Atlantic are largely “lost years” to science. It may be up to a decade before these wanderers return to near-shore h...

Curiosity soil samples showed that Mars' dusty red covering holds about 2 percent by weight of water

According to an analysis done onboard NASA’s Curiosity rover, there is a surprising amount of water bound up in the soil of Mars. When it heated a small pinch of dirt scooped up from the ground, the most abundant vapor detected was H2O. Curiosity researcher Laurie Leshin and colleagues tell Science Magazine that Mars’ dusty red covering holds about 2% by weight of water. This could be a use...

A huge dome of freshwater that is developing in the western Arctic Ocean has been detected by British scientists. The bulge is some 8,000 cubic km in size and has risen by about 15 cm since 2002.

This would force the water together, raising sea sur...
