Discharge of precious groundwater impacted by sea level, ocean tides

manoa-soest-ocean-tide-gatekeepers
Groundwater is a vital resource for humans and ecosystems. Submarine groundwater discharge is a process by which water exits coastal aquifers and enters the ocean. This can be terrestrial freshwater or salty seawater that intruded into the porous aquifer at the ocean's edge. While precipitation and sea level drive coastal groundwater levels, it is ...

The Vast Little Library Inside of Your Cells

Mitch_Guttman-3D-genome-WEB.width-450
 The human genome can be thought of as a massive library, containing over 20,000 different "instruction manuals": your genes. For example, there are genes which contain information to build a brain cell, a skin cell, a white blood cell, and so on. There are even genes that contain information about regulating the genome itself—like books that ...
