More Aquatic National Parks Needed

With humans now able to fish pretty much anywhere in the ocean, and the additional stresses of climate change, it is becoming more important that some ocean areas are set aside to serve as refuges. About 13% of Earth's land is protected, but only about 1% of the world's water. Modeling suggests that if locations are selected carefully regarding ocean currents, the refuges can actually flood adjacent areas with larvae, offsetting potential losses to fisherman.

Wireless Sensor Networks

A range of outdoor wireless sensors are now available for uses ranging from measuring snowpack in the Sierra Nevadas to ground moisture in vineyards. To illustrate one use: soil moisture sensors can be set to measure and transmit results at 1, 2 and 3 feet depths every ten minutes. These are being widely used at vintners and with crops like nuts, fruits and nursery plants. They can help reduce water usage and costs and increase yield.

Dry Shipwrecks in the Aral Sea 

It's been several decades now that we have been hearing about the drying of the Aral Sea. It has been drying since the 1960s. Once the fourth-largest saline body of water in the world it has now shrunk to 10% of it's former size due to diverting of two rivers by the Soviet Union. The Kazakstan government is working to save one of the two small lakes now remaining.
