Water triangle around the Himalayan rivers

Water triangle around the Himalayan rivers Facts

Peaceful life of southern Asia at risk of conflict, provoked by a lack of fresh water in an unstable geopolitical triangle Pakistan, India and China. The situation is complicated by the constant attempts Himalayan nations, especially China and India, to use a common water resource river Brahmaputra in its favor for the production of drinking water or hydroelectric power, bypassing the interests of countries downstream.

In addition to the Brahmaputra in India turnover hit the river Ganges, with which an enterprising country decided to deal with the shortage of water in the villages

Atmospheric rivers generate severe flooding in the UK

Atmospheric rivers generate severe flooding in the UK Natural Disasters

It turned out that the atmospheric river directly associated with the ten largest floods in the UK in the last 40 years. Thus, in November 2009, in the county of Cumbria in England fell a record rainfall, causing severe floods.

Atmospheric rivers are narrow streams of moist air in the atmosphere of at least 2,000 kilometers long and a few hundred kilometers wide. They usually occur in the middle latitudes in the lower troposphere, where the wind speed of 12.5 meters per second, capable of carrying a lot of water

Sevrybvod spent stocking of salmon rivers of the Arkhangelsk region

Artificial reproduction is one of the components of the conservation of species diversity and abundance of aquatic biological resources. Of particular importance is the fact that grown for release into water bodies valuable fish species.

In hatcheries FGBU "Sevrybvod" under the state order is grown in the winter-spring period in 2012 released into the rivers of the Arkhangelsk region of juvenile salmonid fishes:

— Atlantic salmon (salmon) — 204,000 copies;

— trout — almost 22,000 copies.

Disappeared from the map of China for more than 28 thousand rivers

02.04.2013

On the state map of China disappeared about 28,000 rivers, and environmental scientists argue that these losses are associated with the rapid — "at any cost" — the economic growth of the country.

Biodiversity of 65% of the world's rivers threatened

Under the threat of extinction is not only a lot of terrestrial species of living organisms, but also water, including river.

Construction of dams and hydropower plants, industrial discharges, runoff from agricultural land, invasion of alien organisms — all this has led to the fact that 65% of the species diversity of the world's rivers is under threat. Such a sad conclusion researchers at New York University as a result of an attempted to quantify the impact of 23 negative factors affecting the species diversity of aquatic river (See map below).

Reduced biodiversity of river ecosystems is reflected in

Rivers of the world continue to lose your water supply

Rivers of the world continue to lose their water supply Scientists prove

Four of the world's major rivers, including the huge South Asian river basin of the Murray-Darling, retain the status of low-displacement as a result of careless use of its resources and climate change. According to a study at the Australian National University, the same situation in the basin of the Colorado River in the United States, the Orange River in South Africa, the Yellow River in China.

Each of these pools have long been a sharp decline in external impact of water, mainly due to the

In Tyumen, learned how to produce electricity using small rivers

V.Mironov

Get power from the low-water rivers of low pressure will soon be in Tyumen. Scientists have created a model of TyumGASU power generator. Voltage electricity the same — 220 V, but can be commercially significant power up to 10 times greater than the hydraulic turbine. Analogues of this model in the world no.

Just 25 meters in length, a concept model is located in the tourist complex "Southern", 80 km from Tyumen. The experimental setup includes linear generators, designed by scientists manually rectifier unit, controller, Inventor, energy storage. As a

In Sochi River released 200,000 salmon fry

The hatchery broodstock consists of 700 head. Among them are individuals of wild salmon. They were caught in Mzymta last fall, in order to receive higher-quality offspring and resilience. Ichthyologists say that out of all of the issued fry will survive no more than 25%, but this is already done. The fact that the feed for salmon in the rivers of Sochi bit, so the biggest natural enemies of the fish — it is relatives.

Such compensatory measures are carried out 2-3 times a year, depending on the advice Rosrybolovstva. This issue — 200,000 shares — worth about 3
