Tails From the Gulf Stream

10,000 Birds

The Gulf Stream lies between 20-40 miles off the North Carolina coast, and to the unpracticed eye it looks scarcely different that the expanse of blue water it courses through. And more specifically, there’s something about this part of this mass, where the Gulf Stream rubs up against the inshore colder Labrador Current at the part of the ocean where the depth drops off to more than a mile. This past spring I was able to see the Gulf Stream four times.

Dead Wood & Migrating Salmon: Restoring a Southeast Alaska Stream

Nature Conservancy - Science

Streams in Southeast Alaska can’t function ecologically without fallen logs. A neat and tidy stream looks scenic to our eyes, suitable for calendar photos and nature blogs. For a salmon on its spawning run, though, a neat and tidy stream is a dead end. Cutting old growth forests affects streams in ways both predictable and unexpected. When a large amount of a watershed is logged, it can increase small floods and change stream channels.

The Great Race to Rule Streaming TV

Green Prophet

In the US, there is a growing trend of streaming TV services and people are cutting cords. Now that streaming is all the rage, many stakeholders have jumped into the bandwagon. Now, it is the most dominant streaming service in the market due to multiple reasons. Secondly, customers have to pay a flat monthly fee for endless entertainment and streaming. Amazon Prime is probably the only streaming service with a cost that gets you shipping included in the package.

Notes from Silver Creek: Computer Modeling for Stream Conservation

Nature Conservancy - Science

What effects will land use changes have on a stream and its wildlife? How do conservation managers know what will happen in a stream when a restoration project takes place? Actually, stream managers now use sophisticated computer modeling to predict the outcomes of their activities. These models allow them to see how planting native shrubs, for instance, will alter stream flows and water temperatures. What effect will restoration efforts have on Silver Creek?

Managing stormwaters and streams – new insights the Middle East can use!

Green Prophet

Both stormwater control and stream restoration are proven ways to reduce erosion along water channels and they are important to manage in cities ( Tel Aviv will flood again! ). These can take a toll on the stream habitats and harm sensitive ecosystems downstream. In addition, the larger runoff volumes and higher and more frequent peak flows can lead to stream bank erosion. Monitoring the actual performance of stormwater practices and stream restoration is essential.

Heavily polluted Israeli stream cuts beach in half

A number of heavily polluted streams empty from Israel into the Eastern Mediterrnean, adding to the sea’s already increasing pollution.

$9 billion in 2,000 MW solar investment streams into Morocco

Green Prophet

The bone-dry plains of the Western Sahara may be no place to plant a garden, but their extreme solar irradiance values render them ideal for solar farming. Morocco has persuaded foreign investors to underwrite a $9 billion solar power project. This comprises five separate generating facilities, despite criticism from European lenders over the location of two of those plants. The five planned solar plants, including two to be located in Western Sahara, would produce 2,000 megawatts annually.

Road Salt Increasing Salinity Of Streams

The United State’s Geological Survey recently released yet another study, this one focusing on the salinity of streams. The study concerned hundreds of streams which were tested to determine if they were above federal standards in terms of salinity. The study found that a large percentage of streams across the country are excessively salty due to the salting of roads in the winter. Over forty percent of all streams tested were above the federal standard levels.
