Dams in the upper Mekong river transform nutrient release downstream

Hydropower is the world’s largest source of energy generation. It is commonly assumed that hydropower reservoirs retain nutrients, and this nutrient reduction significantly reduces primary productivity, fishery catches and food security downstream.
Hydropower is the world’s largest source of energy generation. It is commonly assumed that hydropower reservoirs retain nutrients, and this nutrient reduction significantly reduces primary productivity, fishery catches and food security downstream. An international research team, including Prof. Jef Huisman from the University of Amsterdam, now demonstrates that hydropower reservoirs in the upper Mekong River in China do not retain nutrients, but transform their bioavailability downstream.

Observation of flat bands in twisted bilayer graphene

Transport experiments in twisted bilayer graphene have revealed multiple superconducting domes separated by correlated insulating states.
Transport experiments in twisted bilayer graphene have revealed multiple superconducting domes separated by correlated insulating states. These properties are generally associated with strongly correlated states in a flat mini-band of the hexagonal moiré superlattice as was predicted by band structure calculations.

Solution to water shortage Reuse of sewage for groundwater fed irrigation

A new study by a diverse team of experts, including researchers from the University of Amsterdam, shows that reusing treated domestic wastewater through groundwater fed irrigation can satisfy part of the agricultural water demand.
Globally, there is an imbalance between water availability and water demand. The main cause of this mismatch is agricultural irrigation, which accounts for about 70% of freshwater withdrawal. At the same time, wastewater treatment plants discharge large volumes of water that diminish the quality of the limited freshwater resources. A new study by a diverse team of experts, including researchers from the University of Amsterdam, shows that reusing treated domestic wastewater through groundwater fed irrigation can satisfy part of the agricultural water demand, while wastewater is naturally purified through the sub-soil. Their findings are now published in the scientific journals Science of the Total Environment and Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology.
