Model could create hurricane forecasts up to 18 months in advance

Every spring, researchers publish their projected forecasts of the upcoming hurricane season—how many storms may form, and how severe they may be. But what if you could create these forecasts up to a year and a half in ...

'Bat-sense' tech generates images from sound

By cleverly analyzing the results, the algorithm can deduce the shape, size and layout of a room, as well as pick out in the presence of objects or people. The results are displayed as a video feed which turns the echo data ...

Scientists complete first global survey of freshwater fluctuation

To investigate humans' impact on freshwater resources, scientists have now conducted the first global accounting of fluctuating water levels in Earth's lakes and reservoirs—including ones previously too small to measure ...

Machine learning boosts the search for 'superhard' materials

Superhard materials are in high demand in industry, from energy production to aerospace, but finding suitable new materials has largely been a matter of trial and error based on classical materials such as diamonds. Until ...

Tetrahedra may explain water's uniqueness

Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo sifted through experimental data to probe the possibility that supercooled water has a liquid-to-liquid phase transition between disordered and ...
