What is ‘structured water’ (aka hexagonal water, EZ water, or H3O2)? You might see people advertising it, but it’s not a real thing.

Australia needs more investment in hydrological modelling and new infrastructure to reduce the impact of major flood events, UNSW expert says.

Waves crashing

A new study from the UNSW Water Research Lab has shown that extreme weather events could help buffer beaches from the impact of sea-level rise – by bringing in new sand from deeper waters or from nearby beaches.

Water gushes into a large stone tub in a green field

When groundwater comes to the surface, sunlight and air convert organic molecules to greenhouse gases. That’s going to be a problem as we will need this water more as the world warms.

Quantum computers, making greenhouse gases useful, COVID-19 infection from droplet spread and water security were some of the most popular engineering stories in 2020.

A view of Earth from the moon.

Researchers have long suspected there's water - or ice, to be precise - on the Moon. New research now confirms it, and suggests it lurks in sun-starved nooks and crannies called 'cold traps'.
