Inaugural Policy Conference Spotlights Geoscience for Economy, Public Safety, National Security

07.03.2012
As natural disasters surge, natural resource issues increase, oceans rise and grow more degraded, and the Arctic undergoes rapid change, policy makers can utilize scientific knowledge to surmount challenges to our economy, public safety, and national security.
To promote exchange among scientists, policy makers and others, the world’s largest organization of Earth and space scientists, the American Geophysical Union, invites you to this gathering of scientists, government representatives, NGOs, and other stakeholders.

WHAT: AGU Science Policy Conference
WHERE: Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C.
WHEN: 1-2 May 2012

The conference will feature dozens of eminent speakers from top levels of government, the military, scientific institutions and societies, universities, environmental organizations, industry, and agriculture, in four tracks, covering:

• Natural Hazards: public safety, economic tolls, national policy, severe weather mitigation, regional and local prospects, space weather

• Natural Resources: hydraulic fracturing, food security, critical minerals, coastal and water management, energy and renewables

• Oceans: national policy, acidification, research for sustainability

• Arctic Forum: ecosystem change, transportation and energy development, Arctic security

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

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...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

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...
