Mapping Europe’s Quiet Areas

One-third of Europe’s countryside is potentially affected by noise pollution caused by human activity, according to a new report published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA). Protecting areas not yet affected by noise can bring significant environmental and health benefits, the report says.

Earth Scientists Push Boundaries of 3D Modeling

Robert Moucha, assistant professor of geophysics, and Gregory Ruetenik, a Ph.D. student in Earth sciences, have collaborated with Gregory Hoke, associate professor of Earth sciences, on a unique numerical modeling study that simulates changing terrain over millions of years. Their study shows that moderate changes in dynamic topography produce an erosional response in the form

Yale Researchers Map 6,000 Years of Urban Settlements

As the growth of cities worldwide transforms humans into an “urban species,” many scholars question the sustainability of modern urbanization. But, in reality, there aren’t much data on long-term historical urbanization trends and patterns. A new Yale-led study offers fresh clarity on these historical trends, providing the first spatially explicit dataset of the location and size

Coral Reefs Fall Victim to Overfishing, Pollution, Ocean Warming

HOUSTON, June 7, 2016—One of the longest and largest studies of coral reef health ever undertaken finds that corals are declining worldwide because a variety of threats — overfishing, nutrient pollution and pathogenic disease — that ultimately become deadly in the face of higher ocean temperatures. The study by marine biologists from Rice University, Oregon

New Cheap Method of Surveying Landscapes Can Capture Environmental Change

Cheap cameras on drones can be used to measure environmental change which affects billions of people around the world, new research from the University of Exeter shows. Experts have developed a new way of surveying vegetation which greatly advances the tools available to ecologists and land managers seeking understand dryland ecosystems. Using standard ‘point and

3D-Printed Weather Stations Fill Gaps in Developing World

Scientists have successfully installed the first wave of low-cost weather stations that are designed to provide critically needed information to farmers and other residents in developing countries. The stations are built largely with 3D-printed parts that can be easily replaced if they wear out in the field. They were created by weather experts at the

Antarctic Coastline Images Reveal Four Decades of Ice Loss to Ocean

Part of Antarctica has been losing ice to the ocean for far longer than had been expected, satellite pictures reveal. A study of images along 2000km of West Antarctica’s coastline has shown the loss of about 1000km2 of ice – an area equivalent to the city of Berlin – over the past 40 years. Researchers
