Reindeer may be best known for pulling Santa's sleigh, but a new study suggests they may have a part to play in slowing down climate change too.
Physicists in Israel and the US have proposed a new type of travelling wave pattern—one that can adapt to the size of physical system in which it is embedded - reporting the work in the New Journal of Physics.
A group of first year students at Roskilde University, supervised by Dr Tina Hecksher, have shown that water-filled balloons behave very similarly to tiny water droplets, by bouncing them on a bed of nails.
The ecological consequences of an environmental disaster can extend further than one may imagine as effects propagate through interconnected food webs. Most recently, researchers in the US have found evidence suggesting that ...
Researchers in Germany and the US have upgraded the performance of a reaction microscope so that the technique—known as Cold Target Recoil Ion Momentum Spectroscopy, or COLTRIMS for short—can be extended to distinguish ...
Climate change, not the ongoing regional conflict, was behind last year's huge dust storm in the Middle East, according to new research published in Environmental Research Letters.
In-depth review charts the scientific understanding of rainbows and highlights the many practical applications of this fascinating interaction between light, liquid and gas.
Numerical analysis considers both surface and guided waves, accounts for soil dissipation, and provides design guidelines for implementing earthquake protection using an array of ground-based cavities.
Analytical approach could accelerate the development of new preservation treatments delivering environmental benefits and help in the design of bio-inspired smart actuators.
Certain varieties of aquatic floating weeds demonstrate an impressive ability to selectively absorb oil from contaminated water. These plants, which are often regarded as a nuisance, could in fact provide an extremely convenient ...
