  • Shorter and warmer winters lead to an increase in emissions of methane from northern lakes, according to a new study by scientists in Finland and the United States. Longer ice-free periods contribute to increased methane emissions. In Finland, emissions of methane from lakes could go up by as much as 60 percent.  An international study

  • Tropical forest ecosystems are an important part of the global carbon cycle as they take up and store large amounts of carbon dioxide. It is uncertain, however, how much these forests’ ability to take up and store carbon differ between forests with high vs. low species richness.

  • The bison population has grown rapidly during the last two decades in Yellowstone National Park. This creates complex situations for wildlife managers when the animals follow good grazing opportunities beyond the boundaries of the park and come into contact with surrounding communities. A NASA study has now found a link between climate change effects on

  • Similarly to how bats use echolocation to orient themselves with their surroundings, mathematicians have found that the same can be done with microphones and a speaker on a drone with the help of algebra and geometry. This signal processing research has potential applications for people, underwater vehicles and even cars, said Mireille “Mimi” Boutin, a

  • Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif., have been working on the tricky problem of CubeSat transmission antennas, which must be small enough for these diminutive devices yet still transmit data through the huge expanses of space. “It’s like pulling a rabbit out of a hat,” said Nacer Chahat, a specialist in […]

  • New Real-Time Maps Transform Forecast Data into Vivid Pictures of U.S. River Flows REDLANDS, Calif.—August 25, 2016—Smart-mapping leader Esri today released a beautiful, robust new collection of Web maps that forecast NOAA stream-flow data throughout the continental U.S. Esri’s multiscale visualization of the National Water Model enables forecast water flows in real time at high […]

  • January 7 — Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Michael Huerta today announced the public release of the B4UFLY mobile application following an initial beta testing period.

  • Ordnance Survey (OS) and Dennis Maps have signed an agreement for Britain’s mapping agency to acquire a 25%.
