Study: Humans to blame for big water losses in region (Arizona Daily Star)

UA hydrologist Thomas Meixner and Oregon State University hydrologist Michael Campana generally praised the study, in part because it shows the importance of using satellite data to measure evaporation. Evaportranspiration is probably the most difficult form of water behavior to measure, since you can’t see it, said Campana, who earned a master’s degree and a doctorate at the UA in the 1970s.

Thousands of cormorants abandon nests (Gazette-Times)

Bald eagles have been blamed for decimating Caspian tern and cormorant colonies on the island in the past.

Conservatives tend to ignore Liberal talk about climate (Jefferson Public Radio)

In the US political conservatives often express less concern about environmental issues than liberals. But eco-psychologist Christopher Wolsko of Oregon State University tells host Steve Curwood this is due in part to the liberal framing of issues. His studies indicate reframing environmental topics in ways that reflect conservative values such as respect for authority and patriotism can better engage conservatives. (see also KWBU)

One in five students at Oregon State University – Cascades participates in experiential learning outside of the classroom, and increasingly, both undergraduate and graduate students at OSU-Cascades are engaging in experiential projects centered on research.

Naming celebration for Lamprey Creek honor’s fish’s historical impact (Democrat-Herald)

“Today is a marvelous day,” said Carl Schreck, professor of Fisheries at Oregon State University. “We’re honoring a fish with the name. But I think more importantly, we’re recognizing forever that these animals are an important part of our environmental ecosystem. It elevates our ecological consciousness and recognizing how important it is to preserve ever cog in the wheel to have our ecological machine working.”

Where to worry about ‘fluorinated’ chemicals in tap water (Buzzfeed)

However, the compounds last over “geologic” timescales in the environment, environmental toxicologist Jennifer Field of Oregon State University in Corvallis told BuzzFeed News. Rather than degrading to safe levels, they build up their toxicity over time.

But dead plants are not.
