Researchers from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Università Politecnica delle Marche have found that green roofs with high vegetation density are 60% more efficient than non-green roofs.
(Phys.org) -- The swirling flows of Earth's perpetually changing ocean come to life in a new NASA scientific visualization that captures the movement of tens of thousands of ocean currents.
Until now, scientists who study air pollution using satellite imagery have been limited by weather. Clouds, in particular, provide much less information than a sunny day.
Stony Brook University researchers are developing a computational platform to mimic the complex "Inflation Dynamics" behavior a parachute's canopy undergoes as it travels through an airflow to help improve designs.
Using numerical modeling, an Italian research team has discovered the role 'macrocells' play in the corrosion of hollow submerged marine concrete structures such as tunnels and parking structures.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Florida State University scientists who have developed a unique computer model with a knack for predicting hurricanes with unprecedented accuracy are forecasting an unusually active season this year.
The increased requirements on efficient production of clean energy have introduced the necessity to develop new power plant concepts. The basic functionality of the new ideas is tested in small scale pilot plants. Advanced ...
(PhysOrg.com) -- From battlefields to civilian settings, David Stauffer’s combination of weather and technology saves lives. Stauffer, a senior research associate and associate professor of meteorology at Penn State, and ...
New, rigorous assessment of shale gas reserves forecasts reliable supply from Barnett Shale through 2030
A new study, believed to be the most thorough assessment yet of the natural gas production potential of the Barnett Shale, foresees slowly declining production through the year 2030 and beyond and total recovery at greater ...
University of Houston (UH) professors and students are taking part in an air quality study that will help scientists understand how to better interpret and forecast air quality using satellite data and numerical models.
