Study delivers new knowledge about what causes thunderstorms and cloud bursts

(University of Copenhagen) Thunderstorms often provoke violent cloud bursts that can result in devastating flooding. But what actually spawns thunderstorms and cloud bursts? This question has spurred a new study by researchers at the University of Copenhagen — with surprising results.

U.S. Forest Fires Aren’t At Historic Highs—Not Even Close

California’s wildfires are a serious matter, but the official record of the United States shows forest fires in the US today are far below the annual average in the 1930s and 1940s. California wildfires have been in the news in…

Fuel cells for hydrogen vehicles are becoming longer lasting

An international research team has succeeded in developing an electrocatalyst for hydrogen fuel cells which, in contrast to the catalysts commonly used today, does not require a carbon carrier and is therefore much more stable. The new process is industrially applicable and can be used to further optimize fuel cell powered vehicles without CO2 emissions.
