Researchers can potentially investigate offshore earthquakes as well as geologic structures buried deep under the surface of the ocean, thanks to fiber-optic cables constituting a global undersea telecommunications netwo...
About 60 to 600 miles above Earth’s surface, the night sky appears chaotic. This layer of Earth’s atmosphere is known as the ionosphere and gets blasted by solar radiation that splits the bonds of ions.
Thunderstorms are not usually dangerous for airplanes, but they are often followed by turbulence that really can rock. Now all airline pilots have an option to try out an easy-to-use app, proFLIGHT by Swedish AVTECH, that very precisely shows where the actual threats are in real time along the trajectory.
A highly sensitive system developed by a team of engineers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) utilizes a smartphone to quickly identify the presence of toxin-creating algae in water in just 15 minutes.
Reliable environmental monitoring data gathered by wireless monitoring solutions from Hanwell Solutions Ltd proved invaluable for a charity museum looking to secure the Government Indemnity Scheme to insure an art collection borrowed from the Ben Uri Gallery.
The detection of landmines could be a slow and difficult process. Although the process can be expedited by detecting the landmines from a moving vehicle, this will have an impact on accuracy.
Scientists at the Nanophotonic Technology Centre (NTC) of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) have developed a new system that is based on a network of interconnected sensors. In case anomalies are identified, the system is capable of sending automated contamination alerts.
The U.S. recently celebrated the Fourth of July with dazzling fireworks displays in many cities. After the “oohs” and “ahhs” faded, some people might have wondered how the lingering gunpowder-scented smoke affected air quality.
The Environment Agency has awarded a 4-year contract to Meteor Communications for the provision of telemetry systems, services and MeteorCloud data hosting for water quality monitoring systems located in English rivers and bathing waters.
NASA has obtained a host satellite provider and ride into space for an instrument that will considerably improve the understanding of air quality over North America.
