Medicine & TechnologyResearchers were able to predict the behavior of troublesome ions during water processing, so they were able to develop a new ion-removal process to improve the conversion of seawater into fresh water.
Geologists have discovered a giant reservoir of freshwater underneath the North Atlantic ocean. While the size of this cache was rather surprising, researchers say that it shouldn't be unexpected. It was in the 1970s when first signals of the freshwater reservoir was noticed but it was not until recently that people suspected it to be a rather big one. It is trapped in porous rock that is suspected to run the entire length of the North-East side of the US.
