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.
NASA’s Perseverance rover has now spent its first months on the surface of Mars. The testing and deployment phase is proceeding well, and after the first technology demonstration with the Ingenuity helicopter, the rover is commencing the continuous scientific measurements.
SBR Agricultural Products (SBR) was founded in 1990 and operates in the Mersin Silifke region of Turkey. It specialises in the cultivation of fruit, especially berries – using cutting edge techniques.
The EPFL Spacecraft Team has set an aspiring goal of launching a couple of satellites by 2023.
At Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) Institute of Materials Science, a research team has developed new silicon and graphene Schottky contact-based infrared radiation sensors with higher efficiency than the infrared sensors available in the market.
Researchers from MIPT have developed a prototype detector of solar particles. The device is capable of picking up protons at kinetic energies between 10 and 100 megaelectronvolts, and electrons at 1-10 MeV.
Satellites in space and a network of ground-based sensors could be used to monitor the quality of Australia’s inland waterways, reservoirs and coastal environments.
A prototype device may soon be used for calibrating sensors on satellites used for imaging the Earth.
The National Institute for Food and Agriculture and the National Science Foundation has awarded Nadia Shakoor, Ph.D., senior research scientist at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, a three-year, $1.4 million grant to develop FieldDock, an integrated smart farm system.
International collaboration takes Vaisala and the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) to Mars onboard NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover. The rover is scheduled to launch on July 30, 2020. Vaisala’s sensor technology combined with FMI’s measurement instrumentation will be used to obtain accurate and reliable pressure and humidity data from the surface of the red planet.
