Human Water Cycle: Wastewater
 
05:00
Water. It's an essential building block of life, constantly moving in a hydrologic cycle that flows in a continuous loop above, across and even below the Earth's surface. But water is also constantly moving through another cycle -- the human water cycle -- that powers our homes, hydrates our bodies, irrigates our crops and processes our waste. The tight connection between water, food and energy makes them dependent on one another. Our increasing need for these three vital resources is forcing us to rethink how we manage and use our water supply. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has joined with NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, to release a four-part video series, the "Human Water Cycle," that explores the connection between water, food and energy. Wastewater is what gets flushed down the toilet, rinsed down the drain, and produced by places such as factories, workplaces, and homes. Kartik Chandran at Columbia University is changing the perception of wastewater by treating it more efficiently and creating energy from resources found in it.

Managing Water Resources for Human Health
 
01:00
Find the full free online course at: http://alison.com/courses/managing-water-resources-for-human-health Try another of ALISON's 500+ free online courses here: http://alison.com/course/ Planet Earth is known as the blue planet due to the large amount of water present on its surface. However, less than one percent of total water is available to humans as usable freshwater. With increasing population growth and the effects of climate change hundreds of millions of people around the world, in both developed and developing nations, are facing an uncertain future in terms of the water resources that will be available to them for use. This free online course looks at aspects of water resources and their management, and how this can affect human health. The course begins with a review of water and its various uses, and it then looks in detail at the water cycle that supplies vital freshwater for use by humans, how water is treated for human consumption and how clean freshwater is vital for human health. The course then looks at water resource and water supply management, and how pollution can cause water stress.

We have a lot of water on Earth, but we also can't actually drink much of it... or use it for farming. That's because most of the water on Earth is saltwater. We humans, like a lot of living things, need freshwater to survive. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about the difference between freshwater and saltwater and why freshwater is so important. This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids! ///Standards Used in This Video/// 5-ESS2-2. Describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.

NASA | Show Me the Water
 
02:50
Freshwater seems abundant, but when accounting for all the water on Earth, it's in limited supply. Just three percent of the water on our planet is freshwater. A majority of this water, about two percent of the world total, is contained in glaciers and ice sheets or stored below ground. The remaining one percent is found in lakes, rivers and wetland areas or transported through the atmosphere in the form of water vapor, clouds and precipitation. Rain and snowfall replenish freshwater sources, making it vital to know when, where and how much water is falling at any given time. Using NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement satellite, researchers can track precipitation worldwide and monitor levels from space.

Sustainable safeguarding of water resources
 
03:56
A project of the National Research Programme "Sustainable water management" (NRP 61). Prof. Dr. Adrienne Grêt-Regamey presents the research work carried out in the scope of the project: Access to water of good quality and in sufficient quantity is essential to human beings. However, land use and climate changes challenge this water availability. Political and administrative decision-makers depend on a scientific basis on which to build, in good time, measures for the safeguarding of water resources. Water is used for drinking, for the irrigation of fields and for the production of energy; we relax by the water and also have to protect ourselves against floods. However, human activity and climate change affect the ecosystems, thus interfering with their functions. When less water is available, many branches of industry are endangered. Additional costs arise when certain branches can no longer function as desired. It is therefore necessary to develop measures which safeguard the availability of good quality water in sufficient quantity. The project takes into account the entire water resource supply chain, from the supply in the catchment area all the way to the use in the valley, based on the example of the Rhône in the Upper Valais. Basic national and international political conditions and their influence on water management will be taken into account, as will the changes associated with the climate. A model will be developed that combines the hydrological, ecological and economic aspects of water resource development and portrays these in various scenarios. The effects of climate change and land use on water resources will be depicted in maps. In this way, it will be demonstrated that certain areas react more sensitively to climate change and socio-economic development than others, and suitable adaptation strategies can be formulated for the local stakeholders. Tools will be developed that will help the decision-makers to develop regional measures, thus ensuring that high quality water is available in sufficient quantities. These measures can for example include exploitation modifications and financial incentive systems. The regional players will above all have to adapt to climate change. When it comes to modifications in land use, they will possibly be able to weaken negative trends. Informations: http://www.nfp61.ch

Water Resources Vulnerability Assessment Accounting for Human Influence
 
13:39
2014 Fall Meeting Section: Hydrology Session: Sustainable Water Quantity and Quality in the Built Environment I Title: Water Resources Vulnerability Assessment Accounting for Human Influence Authors: Mehran, A, University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA, United States AghaKouchak, A, University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA, United States Abstract: Reservoirs are one of the main infrastructures that provide resilience against extremes (e.g., floods and droughts) and they play a key role in water resources management. Based on International Commission of Large Dams (ICOLD 2003) records, the total volume of reservoirs is over 6200 km3, which is twice larger than the global annual water use estimated as 3000 km3. Just a simple comparison of the two numbers indicates the importance of reservoirs and their role in providing resilience for water security. On the other hand, man-made reservoirs change the water distribution throughout the year. Most climate change impact studies ignore the role of reservoirs in water availability studies. However, water availability cannot be properly assessed without a thorough assessment of reservoir conditions. By combining classical methods for climate variability assessment (top-down approach) and influence assessment (bottom-up approach), this study offers a hybrid framework that integrates different drivers of water storage vulnerability. Final index is termed as the Multivariate Standardized Reliability and Resilience Index (MSRRI). This index investigates the adaptive capacity of the reservoir and exposure of the system to variable conditions. MSRRI has been investigated over several major reservoirs in Australia and California, United States. This presentation reviews recent findings and discusses reservoir conditions in Australia and California using MSRRI under different climatic change scenarios.

Water is a Human Right

The Greens have supported the "Right to Water" European Citizens initiative from the beginning. Not only is it a great example of European Citizens grabbing a hold of their democratic rights, but it is a force against the short sighted pressures to liberalise our water resources. This is especially true in crisis hit countries where the Commission and the rest of the Troika have been pushing privatisation. We need the integration of this human right into all EU policy so we can guarantee clean water for everyone. We were delighted to welcome activists from across Europe at the first hearing of this Citizens' initiative Monday afternoon.

Arsenic contamination of aquifers is considered one of the most pressing global human health problems. Thus, outcomes of the project will be of a major importance for the management of rural water resources.

Transportation and the arrival of the car have led to urban sprawl and urban blight. Smart growth can be used to mediate some of the ecosystem impacts. Land is also preserved in parks, refuges, and wilderness areas. Do you speak another language?

This presentation will review examples of how protection of freshwater resources and their associated biodiversity are being integrated into state and national water management frameworks. By examining several examples from across the United States and around the world the presentation will outline the similarities and differences among the approaches used in water management policies and describe some of the most effective examples that explicitly link the goals of providing water to meet human needs with the goals of protecting freshwater resources. The presentation will describe how new tools and improved science is informing the development of these policies and programs and offering solutions that previously were impractical. This was recorded at a Connecticut College conference on water scarcity.

Global Water Resource Assessments: Models vs. Satellites
 
45:46
School of Geosciences Although we increasingly rely on models and satellites to evaluate global water resources, their reliability is questionable. Unlike past research that compared modeled river discharges with monitored discharges, our work focuses on comparing modeled land water storage (snow, surface water, soil moisture and groundwater) trends to storage trends from Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites. Likened to giant weighing scales in the sky, GRACE satellites have monitored monthly changes in land water storage globally since their launch in 2002. The satellites show that global land water storage, summed over 186 river basins, increased over the past decade, although models show decreasing global water storage. This suggests opposing contributions to global mean sea level, with GRACE indicating a negative contribution to sea level and models indicating a positive contribution. While there is considerable interest in global scale analyses, water management generally occurs at the river basin scale, with models underestimating large decadal (2002–2014) trends in water storage relative to GRACE satellites. Comparing models with GRACE highlights potential areas of future model development, particularly simulated water storage. The inability of models to capture large decadal water storage trends based on GRACE indicates that model projections of climate and human induced water storage changes may be underestimated.

How Do Wastewater Treatment Plants Work?
 
10:03
SUPPORT CR on PATREON: http://bit.ly/2qBHcvf It's a topic we'd rather not think about, where does last nights dinner go when we flush it down the drain? While you may already be grossed out just thinking about it, this question leads way to a significant subset of civil engineering and a massive amount of public funding. Just like all dogs go to heaven, all drains in a city lead to a wastewater treatment plant where that wastewater gets turned back into water that we can drink. Now, you may be thinking that you'd rather just let bygones be bygones and not think about this nasty part of real life, but here's the thing. Chances you've drunk water that was waste at some point... So, you might want to take some time to understand the engineering process that makes dirty water, clean.

Water in the Balance: The Human Fingerprint on Global Freshwater Availability as Seen from Space
 
01:08:36
A CUSA Sustainability Seminar delivered by Jay Famiglietti, PhD, Professor, Earth System Science and Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Director, UC Center for Hydrologic Modeling. Recorded on April 6, 2011. Over the last decade, satellite observations of Earth's water cycle, in particular, those from NASA's GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) mission, have provided an unprecedented view of recent changes in freshwater availability. In particular, the human fingerprint of water management practices such as reservoir storage and groundwater use is abundantly clear, and raises many important issues for climate, water, food and economic security. Moreover, the worldwide depletion of groundwater aquifers and their transboundary nature points to the great potential heightened conflict in the very near future. In this seminar I will review the basics of how the GRACE mission observes world water resources, what new information the mission has provided since its launch in 2002, and what the implications are for the future of water availability. Several hotspots for water stress, including implications for regional security and conflict, will be highlighted.

What percentage of your brain do you use? - Richard E. Cytowic

http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-percentage-of-your-brain-do-you-use-richard-e-cytowic Two thirds of the population believes a myth that has been propagated for over a century: that we use only 10% of our brains. Hardly! Our neuron-dense brains have evolved to use the least amount of energy while carrying the most information possible -- a feat that requires the entire brain. Richard E. Cytowic debunks this neurological myth (and explains why we aren't so good at multitasking). Lesson by Richard E. Cytowic, animation by TOGETHER.

Water: A Human Right Or A Luxury?
 
02:07
Overpriced water supplies in Sayane district restrict access for underprivileged. About the video: In Sayane district 25 villages suffer from restricted access to clean water due to an inadequate state distribution system. Prior to the new Water Supply and Sanitation Scheme water was supplied through a water tank for 70 Rupees throughout the year. The community, even the poorest, had access to an unlimited amount of water. Once the system changed and the Government started to distribute the water through contractors there has been a rise in prices that has made water a luxury good for the underprivileged. Installing one tap costs 4600 Rupees. A fortune for families, who have an irregular income and often live on a day to day basis. Some families in the villages still invest in the water tap, but they are disappointed. Water is only supplied once every four to five days and the tap empties after only two days even if they use it solely to quench their thirst. Taking a bath with this water is out of the question. The communities lament that the scheme has worsened their access to water. Our Community Correspondent says: Anand Pagare, our Community Correspondent from Sayane district questions the actions from the government: "Why did the Ministry of Water Supply and Sanitation change to this system? They claim that they are concentrating on the poor and helping them access their basic needs. But the people continue to suffer. This is unacceptable. Access to clean water for all people of India should be guaranteed." The Issue: The Ministry of Water Resources has published a Draft National Water Policy (NWP) for 2012. On paper, access to water is defined as a right to life, but at the same time, water resources are treated as an economic resource. Furthermore, the officials finalised that economic principles need to guide the prices of water, which will be fixed in each state independently. Their intention is to avoid wastage of valuable water resources. The Institute of Agriculture and Trade Policy criticises India's Draft on Water Resources. Even if the paper acknowledges that there is a need to improve the water supplies throughout the country and recognizes that equity, social justice and sustainability should guide governments actions, they lag behind in defining access to water as a human right. The policy does not give any clear guidelines stipulating either quantity and quality of water or other parameters that mandate specific service standards. The lack of legally binding guidelines for distribution companies and the overpowering idea of economical principals give little right to underprivileged citizens to have access to the most basic need in human life: drinking water. All those noble thoughts on good governance, informed decision making and access water for all put forward in the document and implemented by the Maharashtra Water Supply and Sanitation Ministry are in vain. The government department emphasizes that they want to give access to water in particular to the underprivileged. But the people of Sayane district continue to suffer from pressing water scarcity.

What Humans Will Look Like In 1,000 Years
 
02:52
There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled. However, it’s not just our outside appearance that will change – our genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival. For example, an Oxford-led study discovered a group of HIV-infected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a built-in defense against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS. And with gene-editing tools like CRISPR, we may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging. Another way to jump-start the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see. And since Mars’ gravitational pull is only 38% of Earth’s, people born on Mars might actually be taller than anyone on Earth. In space, the fluid that separates our vertebrae expands, which led American aerospace engineer, Robert Zubrin to suggest that Mars’ low gravity could allow the human spine to elongate enough to add a few extra inches to our height. However, not even a move to Mars could spark the biggest change in human evolution that we may have coming in the next 1,000 years: immortality. The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads. Whatever happens in the next 1,000 years — whether we merge with machines or become them — one thing is certain: The human race is always changing — and the faster we change and branch out from Earth, the better chance we have of outrunning extinction.

How the Moon’s ice craters will power a human colony | Michelle Thaller

If you're interested in licensing this or any other Big Think clip for commercial or private use, contact our licensing partner Executive Interviews: https://www.executiveinterviews.biz/contact-us/americas/ Astronauts will be able to harvest the Moon's natural resources to sustain human life. - NASA's Michelle Thaller walks us through what it will take to sustain human life on the surface of the moon. - One way would be to run a very strong electrical current through water, separating it into hydrogen and oxygen. It's a process that's not dissimilar to how the International Space Station currently gets its oxygen. - There's already ice on the moon thanks to millions of years of asteroid colisions. All we have to do is harvest it.

I'm sure it makes sense to you that air is something that we consume and it would be a lot of effort to actually bring air tanks from earth and actually launch them up onto the moon. One of the questions I can ask you is where do you think the astronauts are getting air right now to breathe on the international Space Station? We don't actually take up giant tanks of air to the space station. They get it from water. If you run a very strong electrical current through water you can separate it into hydrogen and oxygen. Oxygen, of course, is the most important gas that we need to breathe. So the way the space station gets air is it takes water and breaks it up into those two gases and actually uses the oxygen for people to breathe. Now we could do the exact same thing on the moon. And so your next question would be well doesn't it take a lot of energy to bring water up there as well? We would have to bring all these water tanks. This is one of the reasons we were most excited to find evidence of a lot of ice underneath parts of the moon. Up by the poles of the moon there are craters that are very well shaded from sunlight and they get very, very cold and we found evidence of more water in the lunar soil in those craters near the poles than we ever expected. That means if you had astronauts up there and you actually have the bases near the poles of the moon there would be stores of ice and therefore water that you could actually tap into. You could actually turn that water into air for the astronauts to breathe without ever bringing anything up from the earth. You could actually be independent on the moon itself. And there's another really important thing that you can make out of water by separating it into oxygen and hydrogen and that's rocket fuel. Rocket fuel today, liquid rocket fuel is the combination of liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. So not only would you have air to breathe from the water, but you could make your own fuel. This is one of the things that we're investigating now, not only colonizing the moon but also thinking about sending people to Mars. You send people so far away they have to be independent and the even have to make their own fuel to get back. And we think we can do that if we can find water. One of the great questions is why would there be ice on the moon? The moon seems very dry, there's no atmosphere, how could there be water even frozen underneath the soil? Well, we think that what's happened over billions of years is that many different comets and asteroids have collided with the moon. You can see all the craters on the surface. And asteroids and comets both contain a decent amount of water. Now, most of that water probably just got vaporized and flew off the moon entirely, but some of it actually turned into ice. And the important thing about these craters that are actually shaded…And the important thing about these deep craters near the poles is that they are shaded from sunlight. Sunlight would actually just disperse that ice and actually turn it into vapor, but in the dark shadowy craters the ice accumulates over time and so you actually have a buildup of ice underneath the soil.

[Research Seminar] Managing Water as a Human Right: Challenges and Opportunities
 
34:26
In 2010, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) declared that water is a basic human right. 122 countries voted in favour of the resolution: none against but 41 countries abstained (including Australia, Canada, Korea, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, UK, and the USA). Also, unlike other issues which are now considered to be basic human rights because of very specific international treaties, UNGA resolutions are non-binding. The lecture will focus on the following issues. To what extent the UNGA resolution has accelerated clean water provisioning when at least 3.5 billion people lack access to it? How may this resolution advance water management practices and processes and help handle some of the major challenges the world is facing at present to implement the concept that water is a human right? The lecture will also discuss the efforts of Pope Francis to further the implementation of this notion through an interfaith dialogue in the Vatican, 23-24 February 2017, which the author helped to organise, including the potential impacts of the latest Vatican declaration. ================================================ Prof Asit K Biswas is one of the world’s leading authorities on water and environment.

Human Water Cycle: Drinking Water
 
04:59
Water. It's an essential building block of life, constantly moving in a hydrologic cycle that flows in a continuous loop above, across and even below the Earth's surface. But water is also constantly moving through another cycle -- the human water cycle -- that powers our homes, hydrates our bodies, irrigates our crops and processes our waste. The tight connection between water, food and energy makes them dependent on one another. Our increasing need for these three vital resources is forcing us to rethink how we manage and use our water supply. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has joined with NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, to release a four-part video series, the "Human Water Cycle," that explores the connection between water, food and energy. Safe, clean drinking water is a fundamental human need. Orlando Coronell at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is developing improved membrane technology to purify drinking water more effectively and efficiently.
Save water save life - social awareness video ( short film - made with iphone 6 )
 
04:15
Water is necessary for life. Water is needed for domestic, agricultural and industrial purposes. Three-fourth of Earth's surface is covered by water bodies. 97 per cent of this water is present in oceans as salt water and is unfit for human consumption. Fresh water accounts for only about 2.7 per cent. Nearly 70 per cent of this occurs as ice sheets and glaciers n Antarctica and other inaccessible places. Only one per cent of fresh water is available and fit for human use. So it is very important to conserve this precious resource. And yet we are contaminating the existing water resources with sewage, toxic chemicals and other wastes. Increasing population and rapid urbanisation has led to over-use of water resources leading to water pollution and scarcity.
