Move Over Jules Verne -- Scientists Deploy Ocean Floats to Peer into Earth’s Interior

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

The release of more than 50 floating sensors, called Mobile Earthquake Recording in Marine Areas by Independent Divers (MERMAIDs), is increasing the number of seismic stations around the planet. Scientists will use them to clarify the picture of the massive mantel plume in the lower mantel lying below the South Pacific Ocean. This effort will also establish one of the most comprehensive overviews of seismic activity across the globe. Frederik Simons will discuss this international effort during the marine seismoacoustics session of the 178th ASA Meeting.

Multiplexed C dots track cancer cells to improve patient care

Cornell University

For more than a decade, researchers have used glowing nanoparticles called Cornell dots, or C dots, to illuminate cancer cells, target tumors and even induce cell death.

“Seeing Others Suffer Is Too Stressful”: Why People Buy, Trade, Donate Medications on the Black Market

University of Utah Health

Altruism and a lack of access and affordability are three reasons why people with chronic illnesses are turning to the “black market” for medicines and supplies, new research shows. Scientists at University of Utah Health and University of Colorado ran surveys to understand why individuals are looking beyond pharmacies and medical equipment companies to meet essential needs. The reasons listed were many but centered on a single theme: traditional healthcare is failing them.

Stormquakes: Powerful Storms Cause Seafloor Tremors

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Stormquakes are a recently discovered phenomenon characterized by seismic activity originating at the ocean floor due to powerful storms. Heavy storms, like hurricanes or nor'easters, can create seismic waves as large as magnitude 3.5 quakes. These tremors caused by the effects of storms on the seafloor are what researchers call stormquakes. Catherine de Groot-Hedlin, who was part of the group that first observed stormquakes, will discuss their properties and meteorological significance at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Fish Scattering Sound Waves Has Impact on Aquaculture

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Fisheries acoustics have been studied for over 40 years to assess biomass and optimize aquaculture applications, and researchers in France have examined the phenomenon of how fish scatter acoustic waves in a dense school of fish contained in an open-sea cage. They developed an approach to help overcome issues encountered in aquaculture relating to the evaluation of the total biomass of dense schools of fish. They will discuss their work at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Newswise: Texas A&M researchers uncover the science behind zapping bacteria with ultraviolet light

Texas A&M researchers uncover the science behind zapping bacteria with ultraviolet light

Texas A&M University

In the perennial clash between man and microbe, ultraviolet light has emerged as one of man’s powerful tools against many pathogens. Although ultraviolet light can wipe out several germs, the exact mechanisms that orchestrate the radiation’s damaging action have long been elusive. Texas A&M scientists can now explain how it works

Astronomy fellowship demonstrates effective measures to dismantle bias, increase diversity in STEM

University of Washington

Joyce Yen of the University of Washington worked with the Heising-Simons Foundation to dismantle bias and promote diversity in a prominent grant that the Foundation awards to postdoctoral researchers. Here, Yen shares the ways bias can work against greater diversity, equity and inclusion in STEM.
