A team of researchers led by Virginia Tech Assistant Professor Michael Bartlett have developed an octopus-inspired glove capable of securely gripping objects underwater.
Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and the National University of Singapore, have developed a technique to remove phosphorus from wastewater at higher temperatures than is possible using existing techniques, by using bacteria to store the chemical.
Some species of birds in North America have not fully adjusted their distributions in response to ongoing climate change.
More of the world’s coastal glaciers are melting faster than ever, but exactly what’s triggering the large-scale retreat has been difficult to pin down because of natural fluctuations in the glaciers’ surroundings.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $14 million in funding for 22 projects aimed at improving climate change predictions.
New research today reveals that wildfires may have been a key contributor to the total collapse of land ecosystems during the Earth’s worst mass extinction event over 250 million years ago.
New factors have been identified which contribute to record-high temperatures and ice melt over the eastern Antarctic Peninsula and Larsen C Ice Shelf.
This week, researchers are heading to Svalbard in the Arctic to begin fieldwork to study walrus populations ahead of the next stage in the Walrus from Space project.
The findings, published today in Nature, were reached through a pioneering model that reconstructs the diversity of marine animals from their origin - some 550 million years ago- to the present, based on plate tectonics and environmental factors, mainly ocean temperature and food supply.
Glaciers in tropical mountain ranges are experiencing similar impact from the drivers of climate change as those in the polar regions of Antarctica and the Northern Hemisphere, according to a study published today in Nature.
