Ocean bacteria release carbon into the atmosphere

Research could help scientists better estimate Earth’s carbon budget. A team led by University of Minnesota researchers has discovered that deep-sea bacteria dissolve carbon-containing rocks, releasing excess carbon into the…

The Amazon and the sea

Expedition investigates matter fluxes and food webs in the world’s largest river plume. As the world’s largest river, the Amazon contributes about one-fifth of the global freshwater input to the…

Exploration of ocean currents beneath the ‘Doomsday Glacier’

For the first time, researchers have been able to obtain data from underneath Thwaites Glacier, also known as the “Doomsday Glacier”. They find that the supply of warm water to…

Scientists successfully breed corals in the lab

Oldenburg team reports first successful mass spawning of stony corals in Germany. Scientists at the University of Oldenburg’s Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM) have scored…

Smart glass has a bright future

Light modulation via optical MEMS microshutter and micromirror arrays could provide huge energy savings. Buildings are responsible for 40 percent of primary energy consumption and 36 percent of total CO2…

Scientists show technology can save people from shark bites

The deployment of personal electronic deterrents is an effective way to prevent future deaths and injuries. With shark bites increasing in countries like Australia – scientists say the use of…

Changes in Antarctic marine ecosystems

Intensity of phytoplankton production during Antarctic summer affects the structure of seafloor ecosystems. Understanding the evolution of the polar sea ice is not enough to study the effects of the…

New basalt type discovered beneath the ocean

A new type of rock created during large and exceptionally hot volcanic eruptions has been discovered beneath the Pacific Ocean. An international team of researchers including the University of Leeds…

Virtues of modeling many faults

New method illuminates shape of Alaskan quake A University of Tsukuba research team find that the irregular behavior of the conjugate fault system responsible for the 2018 Gulf of Alaska…

Building tough 3D nanomaterials with DNA

Columbia Engineers use DNA nanotechnology to create highly resilient synthetic nanoparticle-based materials that can be processed through conventional nanofabrication methods. Columbia Engineering researchers, working with Brookhaven National Laboratory, report today…
