Climate change: meteorologists preparing for the worst
Intense aerial turbulence, ice storms and scorching heatwaves, huge ocean waves—the world's climate experts forecast apocalyptic weather over the coming decades at a conference in Montreal that ended Thursday.
What caused a giant arrow-shaped cloud on Saturn's moon Titan?
(PhysOrg.com) -- Why does Titan, Saturn's largest moon, have what looks like an enormous white arrow about the size of Texas on its surface?
'Virtual earthquakes' used to forecast Los Angeles quake risk
Stanford scientists are using weak vibrations generated by the Earth's oceans to produce "virtual earthquakes" that can be used to predict the ground movement and shaking hazard to buildings from real quakes.
Chips that can steer light
If you want to create a moving light source, you have a few possibilities. One is to mount a light emitter in some kind of mechanical housing—the approach used in, say, theatrical spotlights, which stagehands ...
Magma in mantle has deep impact: Study suggests rocks melt at a greater depth than once thought
Magma forms far deeper than geologists previously thought, according to new research at Rice University.
Scotland to deploy largest hydro-electric wave energy farm to date (w/ video)
A new direction for game controllers: Prototypes tug at thumb tips to enhance video gaming
University of Utah engineers designed a new kind of video game controller that not only vibrates like existing devices, but pulls and stretches the thumb tips in different directions to simulate the tug of ...
Huge waves measured for first time in Arctic Ocean
As the climate warms and sea ice retreats, the North is changing. An ice-covered expanse now has a season of increasingly open water which is predicted to extend across the whole Arctic Ocean before the middle ...
Research team projects wind and wave changes as planet heats up
Research team discovers third type of volcanic eruption
The ocean's hidden waves show their power
Their effect on the surface of the ocean is negligible, producing a rise of just inches that is virtually imperceptible on a turbulent sea. But internal waves, which are hidden entirely within the ocean, ...
