Climate change leading to water shortage in Andes, Himalayas

Ohio State University

Climate change could have devastating effects on vulnerable residents in the Andes mountains and the Tibetan plateau, according to researchers at The Ohio State University who have been studying glaciers in those areas for decades. Their findings—that glaciers in both parts of the world are melting more rapidly than at any point in the last 10,000 years—mean the water supply in parts of Peru, Pakistan, China, India and Nepal will decline, soon.

Narrowing the universe in the search for life

Ohio State University

Humankind’s exploration of space has for years pondered one central question: Is there another world somewhere in the universe where human beings could survive? And as astrophysicists and astronomers have searched for the answer, they’ve traditionally looked for a world that has water. But Wendy Panero, professor of earth sciences at The Ohio State University, has developed a new way of thinking about a planet’s habitability. What if, she wondered, the answer to habitability lies within the way rocks and water interact?

Wearable ultrasound patch penetrates the skin to measure blood pressure

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

NIBIB-funded researchers are literally breaking barriers using ultrasound waves emitted from a flexible patch to accurately measure central blood pressure and help detect cardiovascular problems earlier.  For a while now, smart, wearable devices have had the ability to capture how many steps we take in a day or measure our heart rate, but researchers are starting to take it a step further.
