Superfilter Nanomask Protects from Invisible Killers

June 6, 2016 — Scientists have invented an easily breathable nanomask that can filter incredibly tiny particles, such as viruses and air ... read more

June 1, 2016 — Earth's magnetic field shields us from deadly cosmic radiation, and without it, life as we know it could not exist here. The motion of liquid iron in the planet's outer core, a phenomenon ... read more

Present-Day Measurements Yield Insights Into Clouds of the Past

May 26, 2016 — Researchers have shown how fine particles are formed from natural substances in the atmosphere. These findings will improve our knowledge about clouds in the pre-industrial era and thus will ... read more

Clouds Provide Clue to Better Climate Predictions

May 25, 2016 — A research group from the CERN Cloud experiment has uncovered the processes behind the formation and evolution of small atmospheric particles free from the influence of pollution. Their findings are ... read more

Early Use of 'Hurricane Hunter' Data Improves Hurricane Intensity Predictions

May 25, 2016 — Data collected via airplane when a hurricane is developing can improve hurricane intensity predictions by up to 15 percent, according to researchers who have been working to put the new technique ... read more

May 25, 2016 — A new paper explains why some climate processes are more effective than others at warming/cooling the Earth. By accounting for these differences we can more accurately determine the most important ... read more

May 25, 2016 — Black carbon aerosols are important for understanding climate change. Unfortunately, current simulation models consistently underestimate the amount of these aerosols in the Arctic compared to actual ... read more

May 24, 2016 — Greenhouse-gas emissions from lakes and inland waterways may be as much as 45 percent greater than previously thought, new research ... read more

Nanoplastics Negatively Affect Aquatic Animals

May 23, 2016 — Plastic accounts for nearly eighty per cent of all waste found in our oceans, gradually breaking down into smaller and smaller particles. New research investigates how nanosized plastic particles ... read more

Atmospheric Aerosols Can Significantly Cool Down Climate

May 19, 2016 — It is possible to significantly slow down and even temporarily stop the progression of global warming by increasing the atmospheric aerosol concentration, shows a new study. However, climate ... read more

May 19, 2016 — Heavier snow over Antarctica was supposed to be one of the few brakes on sea-level rise in a warming world. But that prediction is not reliable, says a new study of Antarctic snowfall over the past ... read more

May 17, 2016 — St. Louis' hazy summers can sometimes be too hot to handle for people with respiratory issues; increased ozone levels can make the air tough to breathe. A team of engineers focused on a study of ... read more

May 17, 2016 — The features that make cities unique are important to understanding how cities affect weather and disperse air pollutants, researchers highlight in a new ... read more

May 16, 2016 — Earth scientists are offering a new answer to the long-standing question of how our planet acquired its oxygenated atmosphere. Based on a new model that draws from research in diverse fields ... read more
