Scientists predict more extreme weather events in future – DW (English)

Over 100 people are dead and many more are reported missing after deadly floods swept large parts of western Germany this week. The shock is huge, with people losing friends, relatives, and homes. Such devastating floods have not been seen in…

European Floods Are Latest Sign of a Global Warming Crisis – The New York Times

BERLIN — Days before roiling waters tore through western Germany, a European weather agency issued an “extreme” flood warning after detailed models showed storms that threatened to send rivers surging to levels that a German meteorologist said on Friday had…

Emotions and culture are most important for acceptance of carnivore management strategies

(Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW)) Emotions towards and cultural importance of large carnivores are better predictors of the acceptance of management strategies by local communities than the extent of livestock depredation. This is the result of an interdisciplinary investigation led by Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research. They conducted 100 questionnaires with Maasai pastoralists in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, focusing on three large carnivore species (spotted hyenas, lions and leopards) and three management strategies (no action, relocation and lethal control).

Q-CTRL awarded $3.5 million grant from Australian government for space-based quantum sensors

(HKA Marketing Communications) Q-CTRL has been awarded a $3.5 million grant (USD) from the Australian government’s Modern Manufacturing Initiative (MMI) to expand the development and manufacture of quantum-based remote sensing technologies for space deployment.Q-CTRL’s quantum sensors leverage the physics of the sub-atomic world to detect and measure extremely small signals in nature. Its quantum-based gravity and magnetic field sensors offer new low-cost Earth observation technologies with global persistent coverage for climate monitoring, minerals, and geospatial intelligence.

Solar hydrogen for Antarctica — study shows advantages of thermally coupled approach

(Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie) Their conclusion: in extremely cold regions, it can be considerably more efficient to attach the PV modules directly to the electrolyser, i.e. to thermally couple them. This is because the waste heat from the PV modules increases the efficiency of electrolysis in this environment. The results of this study are also relevant for other cold regions on Earth, such as Alaska, Canada, and high mountain regions, for example. In these places, solar hydrogen could replace fossil fuels such as oil and petrol.

The rise and fall of elephants

(Museum für Naturkunde, Leibniz Institut für Evolutions- und Biodiversitätsforschung ) Earth-historical events such as ice ages or the shifting of continental plates are mainly responsible for the evolutionary success of proboscideans, but also for their decline. This is the main conclusion of a study published this week in Nature Ecology & Evolution by an international research team from Spain, Finland, Great Britain, Germany and Argentina with the participation of the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.
