Institute of Physics launches new environmental science website

15.02.2007
From global warming to waste management and renewable energy sources, environmental science covers issues that affect everyone and are now being regularly written about in the media.

The Institute of Physics recognises this and is launching a new website, http://environmentalresearchweb.org, a central source of information on these issues covering the whole of environmental science with articles by leading environmental scientists from academia and industry.

The site combines news articles on current issues with opinion pieces, links with environmental journals, a comprehensive database of organisations in the field and an up-to-date events calendar.

Liz Kalaugher, editor of the new website, said: “The site is aimed at people who are already interested in topics covered by environmental science such as climate change and the development of biofuels, whether they are policy makers, working in industry, members of the public, or part of the environmental science community.”

“Environmentalresearchweb will provide people with much more in depth information on, for example the science behind climate change and other environmental issues and enable them to learn more about what is being done to tackle these problems.”

Other articles now live on the site include details of a new Energy Biosciences Institute in the US funded by energy giant BP, how environmental researchers are using satellite mapping tools to help their work, why climate data derived from 6500-year-old coral has serious implications for drought in western Indonesia, and a summary of the IPCC report.

The site also has links to new articles from the open access IOP Publishing journal Environmental Research Letters, launched earlier this year. Registration for membership of environmentalresearchweb is free - members will gain free access to premium content, receive a weekly newsletter and be able to update the site with their comments, details of their events and their company.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
