Extreme weather events have increased dramatically in the past 20 years, taking a heavy human and economic toll worldwide, and are likely to wreak further havoc, the UN has said. Heatwaves and droughts will pose the greatest threat in the…

Using electric current to stabilize low-permeability soils

(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) EPFL scientists have developed a new approach to stabilizing clay soils. The method involves using a battery-like system to apply electric current to carbonate and calcium ions in order to promote soil consolidation. Their findings were published today in Scientific Reports.

Shattering expectations: Novel seed dispersal gene found in green millet
