The global Phase Change Materials (PCM) market was estimated at $300 million in 2009, and is anticipated to grow to $1.5 billion by 2019. Next generation vehicles and aircrafts will depend on PCMs to absorb heat and regulate ...
Around 252 million years ago, life on Earth collapsed in spectacular and unprecedented fashion, as more than 96 percent of marine species and 70 percent of land species disappeared in a geological instant. The so-called end-Permian ...
A team of researchers, including some from Michigan State University, is making a smart material smarter.
Just below the sun-warmed surface of a dam, the water temperature can be breath-catchingly cold. So imagine how chilly the water gets when you descend another 20, 30 or even 50 metres to the dam bed.
Melbourne summer temperatures have been steadily climbing over the past 25 years, but even more so during the two weeks of the Australian Open in late January, new data analysis reveals.
Man-made global warming is set to produce exceptionally high average temperatures this year and next, boosted by natural weather phenomena such as El Nino, Britain's top climate and weather body said in a report Monday.
NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over Tropical Storm Henri on September 11 and saw that almost all of the clouds and showers associated with the storm were on the northeastern side of the storm.
NASA's Aqua satellite spotted Tropical Storm Kilo brushing the eastern side of Hokkaido, Japan early on September 11 as it was becoming extra-tropical.
Determining the origin of high-temperature superconductivity is probably the single most important challenge faced today by solid-state physicists. This despite 30 years of extensive research efforts. High temperature superconductors ...
NASA's Aqua satellite captured a "baby picture" of the eighth tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean Hurricane Season.
