When it comes to getting rid of water pollution, it’s often more complicated than simply using more clean water, according to a new study.
In fact, the water quality problem may be worse than previously thought, according a team of researchers led by the University of Michigan.
The findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The study, which was led by Dr. David M. Smith, professor of chemistry at the University at Buffalo, looked at data collected by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) over the past 20 years, and compared it to the data collected in the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.
The scientists found that although water pollution in the ocean was the most common source of pollution in both oceans, the polluted water was also the least polluted in the northern and southern oceans, where the average annual rainfall was roughly 50 millimeters.
They also found that pollution in other parts of the ocean, including freshwater bodies, was the largest contributor to pollution in all the oceans, with a greater contribution in the north.
The researchers found that there is a very strong correlation between the amount of pollution and the size of the average precipitation in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
The more pollution, the higher the average rainfall, and the smaller the rainfall.
This is a clear indication that there’s a strong connection between the size and distribution of pollutants and the pollution levels, according the study.
The authors say that this finding supports the hypothesis that pollutants, which are typically small and easily detected, can have a larger impact on the environment than previously assumed.
In other words, the bigger the pollution, which can be detected, the larger the effect.
The research also showed that the impact of pollution on water quality was greatest at depths of less than about 2,500 meters, but that pollution can be significantly higher than that at higher depths, such as about 7,000 meters.
In the future, the researchers hope to study other factors that may influence the quality of the water in the oceans.
They are also investigating the role of temperature in water quality, including the impact on freshwater systems and whether or not warming temperatures are having an impact on water clarity.
The National Science Foundation funded the study and is assisting with the study’s completion.
