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.
2020 was a record year for strawberry yields at the Water Efficient Technology Centre (WET Centre), based at NIAB EMR in Kent, UK.
The WET Centre is an extensive research...
By sealing bacteria in tough yet porous, outer casings, environmental scientists could use these organisms as safe and effective detectors of environmental contaminants like heavy metals.
An international project involving researchers at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) is receiving 3.2 million euros from the European research and innovation program "Horizon 2020" to develop a cost-effective method for measuring certain air pollutants.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have designed and demonstrated a new system that allows them to remotely monitor the behavior of freshwater mussels. The system could be used to alert researchers to the presence of toxic substances in aquatic ecosystems.
CARLO GAVAZZI has launched the NRG Series of EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus Controllers and multifunction Solid State Relays.
The sensor network MUCCnet (Munich Urban Carbon Column network) consists of five high-precision optical instruments that analyze the sun's light spectra. They measure the concentration of the gases carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and carbon monoxide (CO). Since each gas has its own unique spectral "fingerprint", concentrations of these gases can be determined in the columns of air between the instruments and the sun.
