Wet ‘Dry Season’ Damaged Valuable Ornamental Plants

Purplevelvet080515.jpg

Florida’s winters are usually dry, but the wet winter of 2015-2016 helped spread pathogens that destroyed ornamental plants in Miami-Dade County. That’s a problem in an area where the industry generated an estimated $998 million annually in sales in 2015, University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences researchers say.

Is Spring Getting Longer? Research Points to a Lengthening “Vernal Window”

Springtrees.jpg

With the first day of spring around the corner, temperatures are beginning to rise, ice is melting, and the world around us is starting to blossom. Scientists sometimes refer to this transition from winter to the growing season as the “vernal window,” and a new study led by the University of New Hampshire shows this window may be opening earlier and possibly for longer.

From the Butterfly's Wing to the Tornado: Predicting Turbulence

Remember the butterfly-triggers-tornado adage? Chaos theory says calculating turbulence to find out if that's true must be impossible. Now, physicists are latching onto turbulent patterns with digital optics and math. Their resulting forecasts jibe with actual turbulent flows.

Ocean Observation Tools in the Gulf Can Help U.S. Prepare for Next Disaster

Ocean observing tools play a key role in helping to lessen the impacts from many risks, according to a Congressional briefing provided by representatives of private foundations, the scientific community, industry and academia that was focused on sustained observations for the Gulf of Mexico and the role that the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) and the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System (GCOOS) play in supporting the economy, public health and safety in the Gulf.

To study conditions in the ionosphere, Cornell University research engineer Steven Powell, and others in the College of Engineering, have developed the FOTON (Fast Orbital TEC for Orbit and Navigation) GPS receiver. This year, the FOTON hitched a ride aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to begin a long-term project at the International Space Station.
