Researchers at KAUST have identified that pairing ground-based sensors with airborne drones could greatly help firefighters while battling wildfires.
The frequency of wildfires is steadily rising as climate change creates increasingly favorable conditions for such conflagrations. Dry leaves and plant life, a lack of soil moisture, and increased temperatures amongst other conditions provide fuel for such infernos and have significantly increased what is known as wildfire season.
Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental, and industrial measurement, today announced the availability of its best-in-class air quality sensor and monitoring solution, which is cost-effective, scalable, accurate, and easy-to-set-up – putting cities in control of air quality decisions.
A method for making ultrathin sensors for monitoring the health of crops could help farmers grow more food without putting extra demands on the land.
Developments in wearable technology are transforming the way people live, work, play, as well as how healthcare is given and received.
Scientists have established a new method for detecting the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in air filters placed on public buses. The findings, published on the medRxiv* preprint server, highlight the potential use of air filters in the fight against COVID-19.
Carbon dioxide emissions in Los Angeles fell 33% in April of 2020 compared with previous years, as roads emptied and economic activity slowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new study in Geophysical Research Letters.
Manufactured in a new process based on crystalline materials, these low-loss mirrors promise to open up completely new application areas, for example in optical respiratory gas analysis for early cancer detection or the detection of greenhouse gases.
Scientists from the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), along with collaborators from Nepal, have revealed a sophisticated technique to monitor the dynamics of groundwater in high-mountain regions.
Under the guidance of Curtin University, a new study has demonstrated how radar satellites can enhance the potential to detect, track, prepare for, and resist natural disasters in Australia, such as earthquakes, floods, and bushfires.
