Surface helium detonation spells end for white dwarf
An international team of researchers has found evidence that the brightest stellar explosions in our Universe could be triggered by helium nuclear detonation near the surface of a white dwarf star. Using Hyper Suprime-Cam mounted on the Subaru Telescope, the team detected a type Ia supernova within a day after the explosion, and explained its behavior through a model calculated using the supercomputer ATERUI. This result was reported in Nature published on Oct. 5. (2017-10-04)

Reducing the risk to children's health in flood-prone areas of India
Monsoon rainfall has become more unpredictable in India. Floods and droughts have become more common and pose multiple risks to human health and wellbeing, with children under five being particularly vulnerable. New research finds that more assistance needs to be provided to communities in flood-prone areas to protect children under 5 from undernutrition. (2020-04-14)

Fossil records show biodiversity comes and goes
A detailed and extensive new analysis of the fossil records of marine animals over the past 542 million years has yielded a stunning surprise. Biodiversity appears to rise and fall in mysterious cycles of 62 million years for which science has no satisfactory explanation. The analysis, performed by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley, has withstood thorough testing so that confidence in the results is above 99-percent.

Noah-MP captures major hydrological patterns in China
The Noah land surface model with multi-parameterization options (Noah-MP) simulates the major spatiotemporal patterns of hydrological variables in China, a vast country characterized by complex terrain and large river basins across a wide range of climates. (2019-10-10)

Heavy metal -- in and around the lakes
Heavy metal pollution of lakes has a seriously detrimental impact on people and ecosystems that rely on such bodies of water. According to a study published in the current issue of Interdisciplinary Environmental Review, researchers have focused on the physicochemical properties and toxicology of water from and around Thane City of Maharashtra. (2011-08-08)

Not Kristallnacht but what followed that brought about 'final solution'
It is not Kristallnacht but what was decided in its wake that launched the series of especially draconian measures against the Jews of Germany, a Hebrew University of Jerusalem professor contends in a new book that has just been published in connection with the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht. (2008-11-10)

Levee modeling study to provide technical data for rebuilding New Orleans
To provide essential data for the rebuilding of the ravaged levees in New Orleans, engineers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will be studying small-scale models of sections of the flood-protection system. The researchers will replicate conditions during Hurricane Katrina by subjecting the models to flood loads, supplying important information to help the US Army Corps of Engineers prepare the city for next hurricane season and beyond. (2006-02-21)

NASA analyzes US Pacific Northwestern storm system
During this season of El Nino influenced Pacific storms, NASA has been analyzing the storms that brought rain and snow to the US West Coast. (2016-03-07)

NASA measures Tropical Cyclone Nathan's winds near Queensland Coast
The RapidScat instrument aboard the International Space Station analyzed Tropical Cyclone Nathan's winds while NASA's Terra satellite provided an overall look at the extent of the storm along Queensland, Australia's Cape York Peninsula. (2015-03-12)

Harvesting health information from an unusual place: The wastewater treatment plant
Every day, people all over the world unwittingly release a flood of data on what drugs they are taking and what illnesses they are battling, simply by going to the bathroom and flushing. And according to an article in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, researchers aren't letting all of that information go to waste. (2018-05-02)

Classifying and recognizing soils training class to be offered by reclamation specialists
The Bureau of Reclamation will host its 2012 Earth School: Visual Identification of Soils and Introduction to Geotechnical Investigation March 6 - 8. Participants will learn about techniques used to visually classify and recognize soils in civil engineering projects, in addition to learning exploration methods and construction techniques with earth materials. (2012-01-10)

Earth sinks three inches under weight of flooded Amazon
As the Amazon River floods every year, a sizeable portion of South America sinks several inches because of the extra weight - and then rises again as the waters recede, a study has found. This annual rise and fall of earth's crust is the largest ever detected, and it may one day help scientists tally the total amount of water on Earth. (2005-10-04)

Experts strategize to bring desalination and renewable energy together
Renewable energy development will play a key role in improving and expanding desalination water projects throughout the United States, according to participants in the 56th Annual New Mexico Water Conference. The conference, coordinated by the New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute at New Mexico State University and the Bureau of Reclamation, brought desalination experts from around the world together in Alamogordo, N.M., to discuss ways to advance desalination projects on Dec. 13 and 14. (2011-12-14)

California water managers vary in use of climate science
Lack of climate change adaptation among water utilities can put water supplies and the people dependent on them at risk, especially in marginalized communities, a new University of California, Davis, paper suggests. (2018-08-14)

Pinpointing molecular path that makes antidepressants act quicker in mouse model
The reasons behind why it often takes people several weeks to feel the effect of newly prescribed antidepressants remains somewhat of a mystery -- and likely, a frustration to both patients and physicians. How an antidepressant works on the biochemistry and behavior in mice lets researchers tease out the relative influence of two brain proteins on the pharmacology of an antidepressant. They found increased nerve-cell generation in the hippocampus and a quicker response to the antidepressant. (2013-09-13)

Present-day species of piranha result from a marine incursion into the Amazon Basin
A research team involving IRD scientists has acquired a better understanding of the evolutionary history of piranhas. About 4 million years BP, rise in sea level appears to have brought about the isolation of small populations of piranhas in the upper reaches of the great rivers. This situation favoured speciation and hence the formation of the present species. Such populations would then have descended to colonize the lowland waters of these rivers following the regression of the Atlantic Ocean. (2007-12-03)

Membrane research opens window to benefits for plants, humans
A wilting, water-starved houseplant and flood-covered crops have something in common. That knowledge, gleaned from spinach and researchers on two continents, potentially could open the gate to advances in both plant and human health. (2005-12-21)

Tropical biologists converge in Panama City
Panama has been a mecca for tropical biologists for more than a century, but most biologists spend their time at remote field sites studying Panama's forest and ocean ecosystems. During this week, tropical biologists will flood downtown Panama City, as more than 500 people attend the 2002 Annual Meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology at the Hotel El Panama (July 30-August 2, 2002). More than 450 presentations are scheduled for the four-day meeting. (2002-07-29)

Many roads lead to superconductivity
In cooperation with an international research group, researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin have now discovered a magnetic signature that occurs universally among all iron-based superconductors, even if the parent compounds from which the superconductors are made possess different chemical properties. Their findings are published in Nature Materials. (2010-09-10)

Forest discovery: Trees trade carbon among each other
Forest trees use carbon not only for themselves; they also trade large quantities of it with their neighbors. Botanists from the University of Basel report this in the journal Science. The extensive carbon trade among trees -- even among different species -- is conducted via symbiotic fungi in the soil. (2016-04-14)
