Water supply: Arvind Kejriwal urges PM Narendra Modi to intervene to avoid crisis 19.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, seeking his intervention in ensuring sufficient water supply from Haryana as the Capital stares at a possible water crisis next week. "I would urge you (PM) to kindly use your good offices to persuade Haryana to continue supplying same level of water that it has been supplying for the last 22 years and not to disrupt it till the issue is finally decided by the courts," Kejriwal said in the letter. In his letter to Modi, Kejriwal said disruption in water supply from Haryana could affect the Chandrawal water treatment plan, which supplies water to the NDMC area where Rashtrapati Bhavan, Parliament, embassies and major establishments like railway stations and hospitals are located. He further said the city had been receiving 1,133 cusecs of water from Haryana since 1996, but recently, for the first time in 22 years, the neighbouring state had contested Delhi's right over this water and partially stopped the water supply. "The ...

'Seals helping predict Antarctic ice sheet melt' 17.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Seals found in Antarctic seas are helping scientists to make more accurate predictions about how rapidly the ice sheet is melting. Scientists tagged two seal species with devices to collect data about the temperature and salinity of waters around vulnerable ice sheets in West Antarctica, according to the findings published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. The team at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the UK has been investigating ways of studying warm, salty, deep water in the Amundsen Sea, in the Southern Ocean. Understanding more about how this water gets towards the ice shelves by measuring its temperature, salinity and depth, will help climate change modellers make more accurate predictions about how rapidly the Antarctic ice sheet is melting, they said. As the ice in west Antarctica melts, it has been estimated that sea levels could rise by up to 3.2 metres, with much of the water draining through two glaciers - Pine Island Glacier and Thwaites Glacier - in the Amundsen ...
