Climate change, rising sea levels a threat to farmers in Bangladesh

Ohio State University

Rising sea levels driven by climate change make for salty soil, and that is likely to force about 200,000 coastal farmers in Bangladesh inland as glaciers melt into the world’s oceans, according to estimates from a new study.

In 5-10 Years, Gravitational Waves Could Accurately Measure Universe’s Expansion

University of Chicago

In a new paper published in Nature, three University of Chicago scientists estimate that given how quickly LIGO researchers saw the first neutron star collision, they could have a very accurate measurement of the rate of the expansion of the universe within five to ten years.

New tool gives deeper understanding of glioblastoma

Cornell University

Researchers in the lab of Charles Danko at the Baker Institute for Animal Health have developed a new tool to study genetic “switches” active in glioblastoma tumors that drive growth of the cancer. In a new paper in Nature Genetics, they identified key switches in different types of tumors, including switches linked to how long a patient survives.

Fish give up the Fight After Coral Bleaching

University of Vermont

Researchers found that when water temperatures heat up for corals, fish ‘tempers’ cool down, providing the first clear evidence of coral bleaching serving as a trigger for rapid change in the behavior of reef fish. Publishing in Nature Climate Change, the researchers show how butterflyfish, considered to be sensitive indicators of reef health, offer an early warning sign that reef fish populations are in trouble.

Revealing the molecular mystery of human liver cells

University Health Network (UHN)

A map of the cells in the human liver has been created by University Health Network Transplant Program and University of Toronto researchers, revealing for the first time differences between individual cells at the molecular level which can have a profound impact on their behaviour in tissue, tumours and disease.

Rising Temperatures and Human Activity are Increasing Storm Runoff and Flash Floods

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineers show for the first time that runoff extremes have dramatically increased in response to climate and human-induced changes. Their findings demonstrate a large increase in precipitation and runoff extremes driven by human activity and climate change.

The Stories Behind the Science: How Does the Ocean’s Saltiness Affect Tropical Storms?

Department of Energy, Office of Science

Two researchers with personal experience of hurricanes set out to investigate the role of an underestimated factor in storm’s strength – salinity. They found that salinity plays a larger role than anyone thought, including them.
