Study of Ancient Forefoot Joints Reveals Bipedalism in Hominins Emerged Early

Stony Brook University

In the first comprehensive study of the forefoot joints of ancient hominins, to be published online in PNAS, an international team of researchers conclude that adaptations for bipedal walking in primates occurred as early as 4.4 million years ago

Diving Robots Find Antarctic Winter Seas Exhale Surprising Amounts of Carbon Dioxide

University of Washington

A new study led by the University of Washington uses data gathered by floating drones in the Southern Ocean over past winters to learn how much carbon dioxide is transferred by the surrounding seas. Results show that in winter the open water nearest the sea ice surrounding Antarctica releases significantly more carbon dioxide than previously believed.

Demonstrated Natural Refrigerant Replacements Could Reduce Energy Costs and Conserve the Environment

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

The 1987 Montreal Protocol and the 1997 Kyoto Protocol called for countries around the world to phase out substances that deplete the ozone layer and cause global warming, but many HVAC systems still use synthetic refrigerants that violate those international agreements and inflict environmental damage. Recently, Iranian researchers investigated how natural refrigerants could be used in geothermal heat pumps to reduce energy consumption and operating costs. They report their findings in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy.

A Penetrable Fabric, Like Toilet Paper, Affects a Projectile’s Big Splash

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Experts in fluid dynamics and kids jumping into a pool both know that an object falling into a liquid makes a splash. A new study finds that a single layer of a penetrable fabric – in this case, toilet paper – causes a wettable ball to make an especially tall splash, but additional layers can stop the splash entirely.
