Uncertainty about climate change can, counter-intuitively, produce actionable knowledge and thus should provide an impetus, rather than a hindrance, to addressing climate change, researchers from the University of Bristol's ...
New research, using computer models of wave chaos, has shown that three-dimensional tangled vortex filaments can in fact be knotted in many highly complex ways.
How can we ever know what ancient animals ate? For the first time, the changing diets of elephants in the last two million years in China have been reconstructed, using a technique based on analysis of the surface textures ...
The build-up of magma six kilometres below El Salvador's Ilopango caldera means the capital city of San Salvador may be at risk from future eruptions, University of Bristol researchers have found.
Making an assistive robot partner expressive and communicative is likely to make it more satisfying to work with and lead to users trusting it more, even if it makes mistakes, a new study suggests.
Virtual reality (VR) is a billion-dollar industry familiar to gamers but recently VR technology has been used to make sense of the enormous scientific dataset that is the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parent and Children (ALSPAC).
Researchers have developed a new augmented reality display that allows the audience to explore 3D augmentations of digital musical performances in order to improve their understanding of electronic musicians' engagement.
The refinement of a common handling technique used on laboratory animals for pre-clinical research can dramatically reduce stress levels and significantly improve welfare, according to the findings of a new study published ...
There has been a long debate about why dinosaurs were so successful. Say dinosaur, and most people think of the great flesh-eaters such as Tyrannosaurus rex, but the most successful dinosaurs were of course the plant-eaters.
A team of scientists and engineers have been able to sample methane and CO2 gases in the remote South Atlantic thanks to the redesign of an autonomous UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) octocopter.
