Upgrading the space station's Cold Atom Lab with mixed reality

NASA's Cold Atom Lab is a first-of-its-kind physics laboratory operating in Earth orbit. About the size of a mini-fridge, it hosts multiple experiments that explore the fundamental nature of atoms by cooling them down to ...

Scientists produce tadpoles better adapted to climate change

In a world-first laboratory trial reported in Communications Biology, a research team at The University of Western Australia have mixed populations to produce tadpoles that would be more tolerant of climate change.

Video: The krill factor in ocean mixing

Scientists have long chalked up ocean mixing of salt, heat, nutrients and gases, such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, to wind and tides. New research is investigating another possible contributor: krill. Mixing ocean water ...

A 31-year global diurnal sea surface temperature dataset

Based on a second-order turbulence mixed layer model, Dr. Tiejun Ling, senior scientist of the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center, China (NMEFC), and his research team, have developed a new ocean mixed layer ...

Can we limit global warming to 1.5 degrees C?

Efforts to combat climate change tend to focus on supply-side changes, such as shifting to renewable or cleaner energy. In a Special Issue in the Energy Efficiency Journal that follows the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming ...

A novel approach to recycling construction waste

The construction industry is one of the most resource-intensive sectors of the German economy. The nation's buildings constitute a vast store of raw materials, harboring some 100 billion metric tons of materials that could ...
