Scientists do glass a solid—with new theory on how it transitions from a liquid
How does glass transition from a liquid to its familiar solid state? How does this common material transport heat and sound? And what microscopic changes occur when a glass gains rigidity as it cools?
As CO2 acidifies the oceans, scientists develop a new way to measure its effect on marine ecosystems
Following a 5,000 km long ocean survey, research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences presents a new way to measure how the acidification of water is affecting marine ecosystems over a ...
