Could the ocean be the answer to a clean energy supply?

Texas A&M University

The quest for clean energy sources has been ongoing for many years with minimal results. This could all change with the development of a single device that will lie on the water’s surface and utilize the ocean waves to generate electrical power.

Atmospheric scientists reveal the effect of sea-ice loss on Arctic warming

Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Enhanced warming in the Arctic (north of 67°N) is found in both recent observational investigations and model simulations with greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions increasing. Global warming is occurring twice as fast in the Arctic than anywhere else on Earth. However, why the largest the Arctic amplification (AA) only occurs in certain periods over areas with significant sea-ice loss is still under great debate.

Moving Munitions

University of Delaware

Unexploded munitions may end up washing ashore or being pulled up in a fisherman's net. They represent a danger to coastal recreation and commerce and a new UD study looks at how these devices move underwater in muddy, estuarine environments to better inform the management of sites where unexploded ordnance may be present.
