The Tyrrhenian Sea is getting warmer and saltier and the patterns of sea bottom fauna are changing. These are just some preliminary findings our marine scientists have discovered from the CIESM SUB-1 cruise. CIESM is launching its second “multi-disciplinary” research cruise on December 5-22, from Messina, Italy. You could join scientists from nine different marine Institutes and Universities, to monitor these changes that are taking place. Scientists will be mapping deep-sea mounts, which are hot spots of diversity, with an emphasis on finding new microbes. They will also look for shifts and changes in the food webs which may be effecting fisheries.
The cruise will be broken into two segments the first from December 5-13th and the second from 14-21st. In the first segment scientists will be studying the Geological features and in particular multi-beam mapping. On the second leg of the cruise, those researchers will be studying the Ecology of the water column.
If you are qualified journalist from any media, with an interest in marine science please submit a one page proposal of where and how you would report, if you were invited to join the scientists on this cruise. You or your organization would be responsible for travel to Messina and any hotel accommodations outside the cruise.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
