A Renewable Solution to Keep Cool in a Warming World

Month-after-month, year-after-year, the world continues to experience record high temperatures. In response to this and exacerbated by a growing global population, it is expected that ...

Depths of the Weddell Sea Are Warming Five Times Faster Than Elsewhere

Over the past three decades, the depths of the Antarctic Weddell Sea have warmed five times faster than the rest of the ocean at depths exceeding 2,000 ...

Prebiotic Chemistry: In the Beginning, There Was Sugar

Organic molecules formed the basis for the evolution of life. But how could inorganic precursors have given rise to them? Chemists now reports a reaction pathway in which minerals catalyze the ...

New research indicates that glitter could be causing ecological damage to our rivers and ...

Trees and Lawns Beat the Heat

As climate change pushes many cities towards dangerous temperatures, planners are scrambling to mitigate excessive heat. One strategy is to replace artificial surfaces with vegetation cover. In ...

Mathematical Tools Predict If Wave-Energy Devices Stay Afloat in the Ocean

Ocean waves represent an abundant source of renewable energy. But to best use this natural resource, wave-energy converters need to be capable of physically handling ocean waves of different ...

Crayfish 'Trapping' Fails to Control Invasive Species

Despite being championed by a host of celebrity chefs, crayfish 'trapping' is not helping to control invasive American signal crayfish, according to new ...

People Can Do More Than Use Less Plastic to Help Save the Great Barrier Reef

There are many threats to Australia's Great Barrier Reef - cyclones, shipping, crown-of-thorns starfish - but QUT researchers say climate change is its worst enemy. Yet a survey they conducted ...

Hurricanes, Heavy Rains Are Critical for Hawai'i's Groundwater Supply

New research indicates that rain brought to the islands by hurricanes and Kona storms can often be the most important precipitation for re-supplying groundwater in many regions of the island of ...

Rainforest Model Offers Glimpse Into Future of the Amazon

Tropical Forests may be more resilient to climate change than previously thought, according to ecologists. The results help solve an ongoing debate about the mechanism responsible for declines in ...

The Effects of Repeated Droughts on Different Kinds of Forests

Drought is endemic to the American West along with heatwaves and intense wildfires. But scientists are only beginning to understand how the effects of multiple droughts can compound to affect forests ...

To Protect Nature's Benefits, Focus on People

New paper calls for the consideration of people's diverse needs in order to develop effective nature-based policies and investments in ...

Australian Valley a 'Natural Laboratory' to Test Carbon Sequestration Theory

An idea to enhance natural carbon capture from olivine weathering has never been tested at scale. Geoscientists have proposed the Tweed Valley as a laboratory and gained some interesting initial ...

Planting Parasites: Unveiling Common Molecular Mechanisms of Parasitism and Grafting

Using the model Orobanchaceae parasitic plant Phtheirospermum japonicum, scientists have discerned the molecular mechanisms underlying plant parasitism and cross-species grafting, pinpointing one ...

Climate Patterns Linked in Amazon, North and South America, Study Shows

Researchers have developed a tree-ring chronology from the Amazon River basin that established a link between climate patterns in the Amazon and the ...

Meltwater Lakes Are Accelerating Glacier Ice Loss

Meltwater lakes that form at glacier margins cause ice to recede much further and faster compared to glaciers that terminate on land, according to a new study. But the effects of these glacial lakes ...

Ice Melt Projections May Underestimate Antarctic Contribution to Sea Level Rise

Fluctuations in the weather can have a significant impact on melting Antarctic ice, and models that do not include this factor can underestimate the global impact of sea level rise, according to ...

Future Ocean Conditions Could Cause Significant Physical Changes in Marine Mussels

Scientists showed increased temperature and acidification of our oceans over the next century could have a range of effects on an economically important marine ...

Droughts Are Threatening Global Wetlands

Scientists have shown how droughts are threatening the health of wetlands globally. Scientists highlight the many physical and chemical changes occurring during droughts that lead to severe, and ...

The Colorado River's Water Supply Is Predictable Owing to Long-Term Ocean Memory

A team of scientists at Utah State University has developed a new tool to forecast drought and water flow in the Colorado River several years in advance. Although the river's headwaters are in ...

New Species of Aquatic Mice Discovered, Cousins of One of the World's Rarest Mammals
