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.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
