Simulations show Eurasia more than twice as likely to have harsh winters due to sea ice melting
Using radio waves to control the density in a fusion plasma
Recent fusion experiments on the DIII-D tokamak at General Atomics (San Diego) and the Alcator C-Mod tokamak at MIT (Cambridge, Massachusetts), show that beaming microwaves into the center of the plasma can ...
More haste, less waste
Like a sleek, modern sports car, a climate model has a complex computer engine running underneath. As the demand grows for the models to produce faster simulations with more details, the computer engine takes ...
