Vog forecasting critical during new Kīlauea eruption

The recent eruption activity on Kilauea has prompted renewed efforts by the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa's Vog Measurement and Prediction (VMAP) Project. The team's focus is to create forecasts of dispersion and trajectories ...

Satellites can see the pollution trails from individual ships

All hands have to be on deck if the world is going to tackle degradation, and one of the biggest emitters is also one of the least well known—international shipping. A 2018 study estimated that pollution emitted from cargo ...

ALMA shows volcanic impact on Io's atmosphere

New radio images from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) show for the first time the direct effect of volcanic activity on the atmosphere of Jupiter's moon Io.

Reducing, reusing and recycling mining waste

Two approaches using existing low cost and low energy technologies to accelerate carbonation have demonstrated significant carbon capture over a very short period and the formation of carbonate minerals.

Could there be life in the cloudtops of Venus?

When it comes to places with the potential for habitability, Venus isn't usually on that list. The hot, greenhouse-effect-gone-mad neighboring planet with a crushing surface pressure and sulfuric acid clouds certainly isn't ...

Liquid sulfur changes shape and goes critical under pressure

Scientists from the ESRF, together with teams from CEA and CNRS/Sorbonne Université, have found the proof for a liquid-to-liquid transition in sulfur and of a new kind of critical point ending this transition. Their work ...
