Marine Biology: Sponges as Biomonitors of Micropollution

Sponges are filter feeders that live on particulate matter -- but they can also ingest microscopic fragments of plastics and other pollutants of anthropogenic origin. They can therefore serve as ...

War on Plastic Is Distracting from More Urgent Threats to Environment, Experts Warn

A team of leading environmental experts have warned that the current war on plastic is detracting from the bigger threats to the ...

A New Material for Separating CO2 from Industrial Waste Gases, Natural Gas, or Biogas

With a new material, the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) can be specifically separated from industrial waste gases, natural gas, or biogas, and thereby made available for recycling. The ...

Colorful Perovskites: Thermochromic Window Technologies

Scientists report a breakthrough in developing a next-generation thermochromic window that not only reduces the need for air conditioning but simultaneously generates ...

Impact of Wastewater Systems on Edwards Aquifer Evaluated

Researchers developed an integrated hydrologic computer model to evaluate the impact of different types of wastewater disposal facilities on the Edwards Aquifer, the primary water source for San ...

Depths of the Weddell Sea Are Warming Five Times Faster Than Elsewhere

Over the past three decades, the depths of the Antarctic Weddell Sea have warmed five times faster than the rest of the ocean at depths exceeding 2,000 ...

Radiative Cooler That Cools Down Even Under Sunlight

Now that autumn is upon us, there is a large temperature gap between day and night. This is due to the temperature inversion caused by radiative cooling on the Earth's surface. Heat from the sun ...

A First-of-Its-Kind Catalyst Mimics Natural Processes to Break Down Plastics

A team of scientists has developed a first-of-its-kind catalyst that is able to process polyolefin plastics, types of polymers widely used in things like plastic grocery bags, milk jugs, shampoo ...

Light Pollution Alters Predator-Prey Interactions Between Cougars and Mule Deer in Western US

A new study provides strong evidence that exposure to light pollution alters predator-prey dynamics between mule deer and cougars across the intermountain West, a rapidly growing region where ...

Paper Recycling Must Be Powered by Renewables to Save Climate

The study found that greenhouse gas emissions would increase by 2050 if we recycled more paper, as current methods rely on fossil fuels and electricity from the ...

Trees Bring Benefits to Society, Regardless of Their Origin

Trees planted in urban spaces provide a multitude of ecosystem and social services. At the same time, trees can be a source of inconveniences. Scientists have analyzed trees found in the Geneva ...

Odors as Navigational Cues for Pigeons

Volatile organic compounds identified that can be used for olfactory navigation by homing ...

Marine Protected Area Urged for Antarctica Peninsula

Species on the Antarctic Peninsula are threatened by climate change and human activities including commercial fishing, tourism, and research ...

A Controllable Membrane to Pull Carbon Dioxide out of Exhaust Streams

A system developed by chemical engineers could provide a way of continuously removing carbon dioxide from a stream of waste gases, or even from the air. The key component is an electrochemically ...

Arctic Ocean Sediments Reveal Permafrost Thawing During Past Climate Warming

Sea floor sediments of the Arctic Ocean can reveal how permafrost responds to climate warming. Researchers have found evidence of past permafrost thawing during climate warming events at the end of ...

Supercomputing Study Breaks Ground for Tree Mapping, Carbon Research

A new method for mapping the location and size of trees growing outside of forests helped scientists discover billions of trees in arid and semi-arid regions and lays the groundwork for more accurate ...

Are Climate Scientists Being Too Cautious When Linking Extreme Weather to Climate Change?

Climate science has focused on avoiding false alarms when linking extreme events to climate change. But it could learn from how weather forecasters warn the public of hazardous events to include a ...

Red Maples Doing Better in the City

A new study examines how trees respond to different urban intensities by comparing tree size and age, foliage nitrogen signature, nutrient and heavy metal content and other factors in forests. Not ...
