Global Seismic Network Now Extends to the Deep Oceans

National Science Foundation (NSF)

This month, scientists with the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) will install one of many planned Geophysical Ocean Bottom Observatories (GOBO), in which a permanent seismograph station will be established on the sea floor for monitoring earthquake activity. ODP is funded in large part by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Research Yields Improved Tools for Forecasting Tornadoes

North Carolina State University

Advance warning can spell the difference between life and death for persons living in a tornado's path. But forecasters in the Southeast have long worked at a disadvantage. Their forecast tools and training are based largely on tornado research in the Midwest, where the super-cell storms that spawn most twisters are different than tornadic storms here. Meteorologists at North Carolina State University and the National Weather Service at Raleigh are identifying those differences and developing new tools and training programs geared specifically to forecasting Southeastern tornadoes.

New Modified Starch Developed by ISU Researchers

Iowa State University

A new modified corn starch developed at Iowa State University could prevent problems associated with digesting sugar. The new starch can replace sugar as a carbohydrate source in many solid and liquid foods, leading to more sustained blood sugar and insulin levels. The starch is flavorless, highly digestible and water soluble, which allows its use in liquids.
