Innovative Way to Understand Nature of an Entire Tiny Particle

msh71.jpg

New research from the University of New Hampshire has led to the development of a novel technique to determine the surface area and volume of small particles, the size of a grain of sand or smaller. Due to their tiny size, irregular shape and limited viewing angle, commonly used microscopic imaging techniques cannot always capture the whole object’s shape often leaving out valuable information that can be important in numerous areas of science, engineering and medicine.

New Analysis Casts Doubt on Predicted Decrease in Oklahoma Earthquakes

Wastewater injection rates in Oklahoma have declined recently because of regulatory actions and market forces, but seismologists say that has not yet significantly reduced the risk of potentially damaging earthquakes.

Shake It Up: Human-Induced and Natural Earthquakes in Central U.S. Are 'Inherently Similar'

The stresses released by human-induced and naturally occurring earthquakes in the central United States are in many cases indistinguishable, meaning that existing tools to predict shaking damage can be applied to both types.

A New Picture Emerges on the Origins of Photosynthesis in a Sun-Loving Bacteria

RaimundFrommePhotosystemGraphicsBG1.png

A research group led by Raimund Fromme has gained important new insights by resolving with near-atomic clarity, the very first core membrane protein structure in the simplest known photosynthetic bacterium, called Heliobacterium modesticaldum (Helios was the Greek sun god). By solving the heart of photosynthesis in this sun-loving, soil-dwelling bacterium, Fromme’s research team has gained a fundamental new understanding of the early evolution of photosynthesis, and how this vital process differs between plants systems.
