Startling Consequences of Global Warming: Oceans Are Losing Their Memory – SciTechDaily

Using future projections from the latest generation of Earth System Models, a recent study published in Science Advances found that most of the world’s ocean is steadily losing its year-to-year memory under global warming. In contrast to the rapid weather…

Scientists Have Identified What Triggered The World’s Biggest Climate Catastrophe – ScienceAlert

Some 252 million years ago the world was going through a tumultuous period of rapid global warming. To understand what caused it, scientists have looked to one particular event in which a volcanic eruption in what is now Siberia spewed…

Global Decline in Ocean Memory Due to Global Warming, Study Says – AZoCleantech

May 9 2022Reviewed by Alex Smith As a result of global warming, the world’s ocean has been subjected to the consistent loss of its year-to-year memory, according to a study reported and co-authored by an atmospheric researcher at the University of Hawaiʻi at…

World’s ocean is losing its ‘memory’ under global warming – Science Daily

Using future projections from the latest generation of Earth System Models, a recent study published in Science Advances found that most of the world’s ocean is steadily losing its year-to-year ‘memory’ under global warming. Compared with the fast weather fluctuations…

MIT’s New Paper Thin Speakers Can Cover Any Surface to Turn Your Room Into a Concert Hall

MIT engineers have developed a paper-thin loudspeaker that can turn any surface into an active audio source. This thin-film loudspeaker produces sound with minimal distortion while using a fraction of the energy required by a traditional loudspeaker. The hand-sized loudspeaker the team demonstrated, which weighs about as much as a dime, can generate high-quality sound […]

New Mesh Keeps Out Insects, But Lets in Sun and Rain for up to 3x the Yield

Researchers have designed a textile called Plant Armor that forces insects to navigate a maze-like path if they want to reach a farmer’s crop. Based on their findings, North Carolina State University researchers said the Plant Armor could provide a more effective alternative for insect protection—one that is chemical-free. “We found it’s possible to use […]

Ultra Efficient ‘Tandem’ Solar Panels Ditch the Silicon to Absorb More of the Sun’s Spectrum With Less Energy

German scientists have published details of their new solar panel, calling it the world’s most efficient of its type, which uses a wider spectrum of sunlight. Existing solar technologies are made using silicon and cannot be improved much further—which makes it all the more important to find more efficient and more sustainable materials. Combining a […]
