Are New Extreme Global Warming Projections Correct? – EcoWatch

By Jeff Berardelli For the past year, some of the most up-to-date computer models from the world’s top climate modeling groups have been “running hot” – projecting that global warming may be even more extreme than earlier thought. Data from…

Typhoon changed earthquake patterns

(GFZ GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam, Helmholtz Centre) Intensive erosion can temporarily change the earthquake activity (seismicity) of a region significantly. This has now been shown for Taiwan by researchers from the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in cooperation with international colleagues. They report on this in the journal “Scientific Reports”.

Floating Solar Industry Pulls Together To Develop Recommended Practices

Floating solar power plants have gone from a super niche sector of the solar market in 2012 and 2013 to a pretty popular option in 2020. It’s still not anywhere near as mature as on-land utility-scale solar power, though, so it seems sensible to pull the industry together and collect useful tips and experience for a set of recommended practices

Precise measurement of liquid iron density under extreme conditions

(Kumamoto University) Using the large synchrotron facility SPring-8 in Japan, scientists from Kumamoto University and the University of Tokyo, with collaborators from other institutes, have measured the density of liquid iron–the main component of rocky planet cores–under conditions similar to the Earth’s liquid core: 1,000,000 atmospheres and 4,000 degrees Celsius. Accurate density measurements of liquid iron under such extreme conditions are very important for understanding the chemical make-up of our planet’s core.
