The results suggest that extreme sea levels will likely occur more frequently than previously predicted, particularly in the west coast regions of the U.S. and in large parts of Europe and Australia.

study examines increasing likelihood of extreme sea levels

Scientists at the University of Southampton are warning that future coastal impact studies must take account of extreme sea levels – a phenomenon expected to occur more frequently as rising waters combine with high tides and storm surges to potentially devastating effect.

longer heat waves, heavier smog go hand in hand with climate change

MIT NewsShare this storyExposure to high levels of airborne pollutants is an ongoing problem, as is exposure to extreme temperatures. If these two overlap, then it's possible that the health impacts will be greater. A recent paper published in PNAS uses 15 years of climate observations in the US and Canada to show that the two problems do indeed cluster together and occur in overlapping, large-scale episodes. The largest of these episodes has the hottest temperatures and the highest level of pollution.The authors used both surface station and meteorological data from the years of 1999 to 2013. They divided this data into one-degree squares. Then they carefully gridded daily Earth surface values for ozone, particulate matter (as a proxy for air quality), and temperature, and they identified

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The Gulf of Mexico coast is an ecologically, socially, and economically valuable region of the U.S., with deeply-rooted human history, thriving seafood and coastal recreation industries, and some of the most ecologically important coastal landscapes in the nation. However, susceptibility of coastal resources in this region to both natural and manmade disturban...

researchers combine two advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques

Is it possible to watch at the level of single cells how fish embryos become trout, carp or salmon? Researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt have successfully combined two very advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. The new high-resolution light microscope permits fascinating insights into a cell's interior.

some genetic variations difficult to evaluate using current stem cell modeling t

Some heritable but unstable genetic mutations that are passed from parent to affected offspring may not be easy to investigate using current human-induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) modeling techniques, according to research conducted at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and published March 14, in the journal Stem Cell Reports. The study serves to caution stem cell biologists that certain rare mutations, like the ones described in the study, are difficult to recreate in laboratory-produced stem cells.

cellular/mobile data usage tracking apps just for this

You don't really need an unlimited data plan. What you need is a data plan with a conscience. Or in other words, a good iPhone cellular data tracking app to keep a check on the data consumption on your iOS device and prevent it from running wildly.The iPhone provides a default way of looking at how much 3G/4G Cellular/Mobile data you've used. Go to Settings → Cellular → Cellular Data Usage and you most likely see the most updated and accurate amount of data you've used over cellular.While this may be good enough, it's not great. I mean, I want to set data budgets, so I don't have to constantly keep doing the high-school math to figure out if I'm safe with data limits. I want to automate the task, so when I hit the danger levels, I want warnings shot right at me.Interestingly, “there are ap

cultivating data scientists—from the ground up

In today’s digitally driven world, enterprises have gotten pretty good at the business of capturing and storing enormous amounts of data. Now they are challenged to unearth the business value that is buried in all of that data by using advanced analytics techniques.For many organizations, the hard part is figuring out how to move forward in a strategic manner. They have the data, they have business analysts, and they have the IT infrastructure. Now they are asking: What’s possible with all this data? How do we get started down the path to advanced analytics and machine learning? How do we cultivate the expertise we need?This really isn’t a technology problem. This is a people problem. At a technology level, powerful, easy-to-use analytical platforms and solutions are now more accessible th

rising seas set to double coastal flooding by 2050: study

Rising sea levels driven by global warming are on track to dramatically boost the frequency of coastal flooding worldwide by mid-century, especially in tropical regions, researchers said Thursday.

expert rock climbing routes recreated indoors using 3-d modeling and digital fab

Through a combination of 3-D modeling, digital fabrication and other techniques, a Dartmouth-led research team has replicated sections of popular, outdoor rock climbing routes on an indoor climbing wall. The study demonstrates how these technologies can be used strategically to reproduce large-scale environments by considering how users interact with such sites. The study may be the first of its kind.

us desert songbirds at risk in a warming climate

Projected increases in the frequency, intensity and duration of heatwaves in the desert of the southwestern United States are putting songbirds at greater risk for death by dehydration and mass die-offs, according to a new study.Researchers used hourly temperature maps and other data produced by the North American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS) -- a land-surface modeling effort maintained by NASA and other organizations -- a long with physiological data to investigate how rates of evaporative water loss in response to high temperatures varied among five bird species with differing body masses. Using this data, they were able to map the potential effects of current and future heat waves on lethal dehydration risk for songbirds in the Southwest and how rapidly dehydration can occur in

novel techniques examine solar cells with nanoscale precision

Using two novel techniques, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have for the first time examined, with nanometer-scale precision, the variations in chemical composition and defects of widely used solar cells. The new techniques, which investigated a common type of solar cell made of the semiconductor material cadmium telluride, promise to aid scientists in better understanding the microscopic structure of solar cells and may ultimately suggest ways to boost the efficiency at which they convert sunlight to electricity.

aussie lake turns vivid pink

A lake on the outskirts of Melbourne turns a vivid pink due to extreme salt levels exacerbated by hot weatherAn Australian lake has turned a vivid pink thanks to extreme salt levels further exacerbated by hot weather in a startling natural phenomena that resembles a toxic spill.
Parks Victoria chief conservation scientist Mark Norman Thursday said the spectacle was the result of green algae at the bottom of the lake at Westgate Park on the outskirts of Melbourne responding to high levels of salt and changing colour. "The bright pink lake pops up most summers and is made by a native single-celled plant known as Dunalliela that responds to extreme levels of salt in this lake," he said, adding that hot weather makes the salt concentrate further."It's completely natural.

a system based on data science to predict student dropouts

There is currently a 30 percent student dropout rate in Europe, according to Education at a Glance (EAG). In Spain, these figures are between the 25 percent and 29 percent. In order to create a tool to assess and improve academic performance and reduce these levels, a team of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science has published an article in the journal PLoS ONE that presents a data analysis system to predict student dropout. This tool is based on machine learning techniques.

samsung's second-tier 'mu' 4k tvs are an alternative to qled

All four models are HDR compatible, loaded with Samsung's new smart TV user-interface and come with the manufacturer's smart remote control with voice capabilities. The MU 7 Series (40 to 65 inches) is more advanced than the most basic MU 6 (40 to 75 inches), however, with its wider range of colors. MU 8 Series (49 to 82 inches) has even more colors and exhibits extreme contrast between the darkest darks and the lightest lights.The MU 9 Series with its anti-reflective coating, over a billion colors and extreme contrast is the most advanced but also the most expensive of the bunch, though. With prices for its 55-to-75-inch variants starting at $1,999, they're just a bit more affordable than the brand's QLED TVs. All of them are now available from select retailers and from Samsung's US websi
