Can coral save our oceans? Soft coral tissue may help protect reefs against the hazardous effects of climate change

Can coral save our oceans? Soft coral tissue may help protect reefs against the hazardous effects of climate change

New research has uncovered the protective properties of soft coral tissue, which proved resilient when exposed to declining oceanic pH levels. The study provides insight into the changing face of coral reefs threatened by dropping oceanic pH levels as a result of climate change and may provide a new approach toward preserving the harder, calcified […]

Профессор из Нью-Джерси предлагает для стран Азии новый способ утилизации отходов

  Одной из самых больших и растущих проблем в развивающихся странах являются неконтролируемые свалки, они загрязняют грунтовые воды и издают неприятные запахи, а еще способствуют увеличению парниковых газов в атмосфере. Однако, как отмечает профессор гражданской и экологической инженерии из технологического университета Нью-Джерси Джей Мигода, существует простая и экономически эффективная альтернатива сбросу отходов в отвал, как […]

Iconic Minnesota conifers may give way to more broad-leafed forest in the next century

A new assessment describes effects of climate change that have already been observed on iconic Minnesota forests, and project changes in the climate and the landscape, leaving forest vulnerabilities in a 23.5-million-acre region of forest. Iconic Minnesota conifers may give way to a more broad-leafed forest in the next century. Credit: Image courtesy of USDA […]

Slatina, „bombardata” de radiatii electromagnetice. Pericolul antenelor GSM

Populatia Slatinei este supusa, de peste un deceniu, radiatiilor electromagnetice emise de antenele GSM amplasate pe multe dintre blocurile-turn ale orasului. In ciuda faptului ca, oficial, efectele nocive asupra sanatatii umane produse de acest tip de radiatii nu sunt recunoscute de autoritati, in lume exista din ce in ce mai multe cazuri in care oamenii […]

Fishing resources mapped to assist land managers, anglers

Fishing resources mapped to assist land managers, anglers

Researchers mapped a cultural ecosystem service by identifying the key features that influence anglers’ enjoyment, such as environmental quality, accessibility, and fish abundance. Freshwater recreational fishing generates income, jobs, and funding for conservation. In 2011, more than 27 million people fished U.S. freshwaters, and Americans spent more than $41 billion on fishing-related equipment, licenses, transportation, […]

Protecting and connecting the Flathead National Forest in Montana

Protecting and connecting the Flathead National Forest in Montana

A new report from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) calls for completing the legacy of Wilderness lands on the Flathead National Forest in Montana. The report identifies important, secure habitats and landscape connections for five species—bull trout, westslope cutthroat trout, grizzly bears, wolverines, and mountain goats. These iconic species are vulnerable to loss of secure […]

Катализаторы для очистки и для получения ценных химических продуктов

Катализаторы для очистки и для получения ценных химических продуктов

Инженер-химик из университета Райса Майкл Вонг провел десять лет в изучении и получении доказательств такого, что палладий-золотые наночастицы являются отличными катализаторами для очистки загрязненной воды, но даже он был удивлен тем, насколько хорошо эти частицы преобразуют отходы от производства биодизеля в ценные химические продукты. Команда Вонга осуществила десятки излучений, сосредоточенных на использовании крошечных металлических частиц […]

Conserving remnants of West African tropical forest

Conserving remnants of West African tropical forest

Nearly 80 percent of Upper Guinean forests, which once covered more than 103 million acres across Western Africa, have been cleared -— a victim of rapid population growth and agricultural expansion. The remaining forest sections are concentrated in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cфte d’Ivoire and Ghana. Using satellite imagery, a researcher will examine the effect of […]
