One of the major concerns in the climate crisis is water. To recap, everything needs water to live. Some need more than others. Humanity needs kind of lot. And it’s drying up. Groundwater levels are being loss fairly quickly and this is bad news for the planet.
The study, done in the US, simulates what the future of groundwater might look like if things continue as they are and the result was that the east coast would start to look and feel a lot like the very dry west coast if things went on.
This study is different in that it looked deeper, literally, into how water moves. Not just through precipitation but also how the subsurface water interacts with the land above it. This gives new insights into how climate change will effect our water storage and may have long reaching effects for water around the world.
