Cloud brightening, 'sun shields' to save Barrier Reef 23.7.2018 DNA: India
Australia announced plans to explore concepts such as firing salt into clouds and covering swathes of water with a thin layer of film in a bid to save the embattled Great Barrier Reef. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed reef, about the size of Japan or Italy, is reeling from two straight years of bleaching as sea temperatures rise because of climate change. Experts have warned that the 2,300-kilometre (1,400-mile) long area could have suffered irreparable damage. While the government has pledged to tackle climate change -- the greatest threat to the world's largest living structure -- there has also been a push to explore shorter-term measures to buy the reef some time. Canberra in January offered Aus$2.0 million (US$1.5 million) to attract innovative ideas to protect the site, which is also under pressure from farming runoff, development and the predatory crown-of-thorns starfish. Six schemes selected out of a total of 69 submissions will be tested to see if they are feasible. One selected concept is ...

Deep reefs won't be 'twilight zone' refuge for fish, corals: Study 20.7.2018 DNA: Money
Deep coral reefs in a "twilight zone" in the oceans differ sharply from those near the surface, dimming hopes that they can be a refuge for marine life fleeing threats such as climate change and pollution, scientists said on Thursday. Worldwide, coral reefs in shallow waters are among ecosystems most threatened by climate change. The Great Barrier Reef off Australia suffered severe bleaching, a whitening driven by warm waters that can kill corals, in 2016 and 2017. A U.S.-led team of divers who studied little-known reefs in the West Atlantic and Pacific Oceans between 30 and 150 metres (100-500 ft) deep where sunlight fades, found most species of corals and fish were unlike those closer to the surface. "We were surprised to find little overlap," lead author Luiz Rocha of the California Academy of Sciences told Reuters of the findings published in the journal science. Less than five percent of fish and corals were found in both shallow and deep waters against the scientists' previous estimate of 60-75 ...

Punjab grappling with shrinking water supply: Experts 6.7.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Ludhiana, July 5 Agriculture consumes 86 per cent of Punjab’s water. According to agricultural experts, shrinking water supply is a major challenge for the state. Water table has gone down from 20 feet in 1970 to more than 200 feet in 2017. This was stated by Dr Manjit S Kang, Adjunct Professor, Kansas State University, Manhattan, US, and former Vice-Chancellor of the PAU, who was here to attend an international workshop on ‘Innovations in Sustainable Water Resource Management’at CT University. He said the WORLDCLIM- DIVA system prediction for Ludhiana/Punjab says there will be more than 2.5 C change in the average temperature in Punjab between 2000 and 2050. The average annual rainfall will decrease by 75 mm to 100 mm (11 per cent). “Agricultural sustainability depends on the sustainability of water resources,” he said. He said climate change impacted the sustainability of water resources. Droughts, heavy rains, unseasonal rains and floods were on the rise due to climate ...
