One of the most toxic waste dumps in WA has seeped into the groundwater, creating a contaminated plume that has reached the John Forrest National Park.
The Red Hill Waste Management Facility takes some of the most hazardous waste in Western Australia, and has apparently been leaking since 2004. The plume includes organophosphate pesticides, and is headed towards a national park.
"... a group of scientists at the University of California, Berkeley have found a way to “fingerprint” various sources of nitrous oxide — and they’ve determined that the accelerated increase in atmospheric nitrous oxide in the last few decades has indeed been due to synthetic nitrogen fertilizer use.
The researchers accomplished this feat through a fascinating technique — using a natural “archive” of air frozen in Antarctic ice combined with an actual archive of air samples taken from a (stunningly beautiful) pollution tracking station in Tasmania, Australia.
In their analysis, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the scientists found that microbes in heavily fertilized farm fields produce nitrous oxide heavy with a particular isotope (nitrogen-14, for those keeping score at home). Their analysis also showed differences in the samples between the two sites that suggest the ability to create a geographical emissions map."
