Popular Science: What is the fate of proglacial lakes?

Proglacial lakes currently represent one of the major environmental threats. Global warming and the increased rate of mountain glaciers melting could lead to the lake filling up and to a subsequent outburst, which is often accompanied by catastrophic consequences. The retreat of mountain glaciers has also raised concerns about water sources. This important topic is of concern to Kristýna Falátková, Miroslav Šobr and Bohumír Janský from the Department of Physical Geography and Geoecology, together with Martin Slavík and Jiří Brunthans from the Department of Hydrogeology, who in their current research focused on the Adygine glacial moraine complex in the Tien Shan Mountains.

Popular Science: Most of the nitrogen in the Elbe comes from wastewater, based on isotopic composition

Since the beginning of the nitrate contamination monitoring in the Elbe, its concentration has been relatively high and has not changed substantially. Researchers from the Faculty of Science and the United States studied the isotopic composition of nitrogen in the nitrates present in the Elbe and found out that between 2008-2009, most nitrates came from wastewater from human settlements, especially smaller municipalities.
