Fire and groundwater

What are the effects of fire on water underground? Let’s think about what happens on the surface, and translate that to what is likely to happen to the subsurface.

Squeezed by gravity: how tides affect the groundwater under our feet

Squeezed by gravity: how tides affect the groundwater under our feet

The effects of tidal forces on groundwater might be less apparent to us than their effects on the ocean, but they’re just as important.

Looking below the surface: Lessons from the landscape

Looking below the surface: Lessons from the landscape

Dr Oliver Knox has brought together information from some of the industry’s researchers conducting work oncotton-producing soils.

Using nuclear techniques to help sustain Australia's finite groundwater resources

Using nuclear techniques to help sustain Australia's finite groundwater resources

Groundwater research at ANSTO has provided crucial information to support the management of finite groundwater resources appropriately and sustainably—answering questions about groundwater recharge, groundwater age and dynamics, the interaction between surface water and groundwater and salinisation.

River on fire: even if it’s not coal seam gas we should still be concerned

River on fire: even if it’s not coal seam gas we should still be concerned

Astonishing footage of a river in Queensland on fire has once again stoked the coal seam gas (CSG) debate.

The world’s biggest source of freshwater is beneath your feet

The world’s biggest source of freshwater is beneath your feet

Groundwater is the largest active freshwater resource on the planet.

Delving deep into caves can teach us about climate past and present

Delving deep into caves can teach us about climate past and present

As cave deposits grow, they lock into their minerals the chemical signatures of the environmental and climatic conditions of the time the rainwater fell at the surface.

Deep water: a new technology probes Sydney’s groundwater for the first time

Deep water: a new technology probes Sydney’s groundwater for the first time

Before we conducted our research, we simply didn’t know much about the deep groundwater system in Sydney Basin. With our new record, this means that if some future mining project impacts the groundwater, we can now use this pore water isotope records as a novel baseline to help determine the extent of the impact.

Stalagmites preserve 3,000 years of northern hemisphere climate

Stalagmites preserve 3,000 years of northern hemisphere climate

Recent research published in Scientific Reports has shown how cave formations preserve a history of past climate.
