Are Wolverines in the Arctic in the Climate Change Crosshairs?

Wolverines33640.jpg

Will reductions in Arctic snow cover make tundra-dwelling wolverines more vulnerable to climate change than previously thought? That’s a question scientists hope an innovative method described in a new study co-authored by WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) will help answer.

TICKS 101: How to Avoid, Identify and Respond to Ticks this Summer

1705059_MW_0009_ticks.jpg

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Spring is here and summer is near, and with the increase in warm weather comes bloodsuckers. No, not vampires, but to some they cause just as much dread. It’s time for ticks, the long lost cousins of spiders and scorpions and the brothers of mites, to have their season, and Dr. John Abbott, director of museum research & collections at The University of Alabama Museums, has the low-down on what types are prevalent in the South, what they do, the dangers they pose, how to avoid them and what to do if bitten by one.

Collecting Real-Time Data About Material Microstructural Evolution During Radiation Exposure

APL012721-Dennett-heterodyne_1.jpg

It may be surprising to learn that much remains unknown about radiation’s effects on materials. To find answers, Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers are developing techniques to explore the microstructural evolution and degradation of materials exposed to radiation. They report a dynamic option, this week in Applied Physics Letters, to continuously monitor the properties of materials being exposed to radiation during the exposure. This provides real-time information about a material’s microstructural evolution.

Understanding Stars: How Tornado-Shaped Flow in a Dynamo Strengthens the Magnetic Field

A new simulation based on the von-Kármán-Sodium (VKS) dynamo experiment takes a closer look at how the liquid vortex created by the device generates a magnetic field. Researchers investigated the effects of fluid resistivity and turbulence on the collimation of the magnetic field, where the vortex becomes a focused stream. They report their findings this week in the journal Physics of Fluids.
