Scientists Urge Endangered Listing for Cheetahs

PeerJ

In a study published today in the open-access journal PeerJ, researchers present evidence that low cheetah population estimates in southern Africa support a call to list the cheetah as “Endangered” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List.

Better Late Than Never - Making a Billion-Year-Old Geologic Feature Great Again

Northwestern University

Geologists have corrected a mix-up that made an ancient geological structure in the central U.S. seem hundreds of miles shorter than it really is. The biggest failed rift known to geologists is even bigger than originally thought, according to research that will be presented at the American Geophysical Union fall meeting Dec. 11 in New Orleans.

The Molecular Structure of a Forest Aroma Deconstructed

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

The fresh, unmistakable scent of a pine forest comes from a medley of chemicals produced by its trees. Researchers have now accurately determined the chemical structure of one of these compounds in its gas phase, a molecule called alpha-pinene. The new analysis can help scientists better detect and understand how alpha-pinene reacts with other gases in the atmosphere, a process which produces pollutants and particles called aerosols that affect health and climate. The researchers describe their analysis this week in The Journal of Chemical Physics.

Final Check as Instruments Set Sail to Track Aerosols Over Southern Ocean

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Imagine spending several weeks aboard a ship traversing the stormiest ocean on Earth, climbing each day to the highest deck to check on scientific instruments mounted inside a windowless, 20-foot shipping container. As you steady yourself against the rolling seas by wedging your body between instrument racks, you might wonder why you’re not sitting poolside on a tropical cruise instead.
