Biologic Changes Dramatically Alter World’s Oldest, Deepest Lake

Eastern Siberia is home to the world’s deepest and most ancient freshwater ecosystem, Lake Baikal. This lake and its surrounding tributaries are one of the largest sources of pure drinking water in the world, containing some of the most diverse and unique organisms. Recent biological changes are causing a major shift in the composition of

Smarter Soil Intelligence Platform Features Deep Sensors and Satellite Connectivity

The agricultural industry is in the midst of a smart farming evolution, and the Internet of Things (IoT) era has the potential to dramatically improve farming practices. For example, CropX unveiled its latest soil intelligence platform, a combination of cloud-based Ag analytics software and advanced soil sensor technology. CropX delivers the soil intelligence farmers need

What’s Eating Away at the Greenland Ice Sheet?

In the high-stakes race against sea level rise, understanding what’s causing the Greenland Ice Sheet to melt is critical. The problem isn’t just rising temperatures: soot from ships, wildfires and distant power plants, as well as dust and a living carpet of microbes on the surface of the ice, are all speeding up the melting.

East vs. West Coast Earthquakes

Why was an earthquake in Virginia felt at more than twice the distance than a similar-sized earthquake in California? Earthquakes east of the Rocky Mountains can cause noticeable ground shaking at much farther distances than comparably sized earthquakes in the West. A magnitude 5.8 earthquake in 2011 in Mineral, Va., was felt up to 600

Thermal Imaging Cameras Reveal Secrets of Coexisting Insects

The departments of Entomology and Ecology at Penn State University made it their mission to conduct research on insects that will improve human health, quality of life, and the sustainability of our food and ecosystems. Research in the Departments of Entomology and Ecology addresses diverse questions and uses a wide variety of experimental approaches and

Antarctica Loses Grip

The European Space Agency (ESA) CryoSat mission revealed that, during the last seven years, Antarctica has lost an area of underwater ice the size of Greater London. This is because warm ocean water beneath the continent’s floating margins is eating away at the ice attached to the seabed. Most Antarctic glaciers flow straight into the

Preparing to Integrate Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Technologies

As advances in technology make it more cost-effective to deploy IIoT, industries will need to acquire a strategic approach to integrating new sensor data with pre-existing data environments. Now, more than ever, industries are seeking simple integrations with controls, automation and data analytics visualization software to harness the power of the Industrial Internet of Things

Wetlands International Launches Program in Globally Unique Wetland System

During the World Water Forum, Wetlands International launched a 10-year program in the second-largest wetland system in South America (after the Amazon): La Plata Basin. Corredor Azul will focus on mobilizing efforts to implement alternative development paths for the region by bringing together civil society organisations, the private sector, academia and governments. The program will

Far Northern Permafrost May Unleash Carbon Within Decades

Permafrost in the coldest northern Arctic—formerly thought to be at least temporarily shielded from global warming by its extreme environment—will thaw enough to become a permanent source of carbon to the atmosphere in this century, with the peak transition occurring in 40 to 60 years, according to a new NASA-led study. The study calculated that

Ash from Dinosaur-Era Volcanoes Linked with Shale Oil, Gas

Nutrient-rich ash from an enormous flare-up of volcanic eruptions toward the end of the dinosaurs’ reign kicked off a chain of events that led to the formation of shale gas and oil fields from Texas to Montana, according to a new study by Rice University geologists that appears in Nature Publishing’s online journal Scientific Reports.
