Laser-based system offers continuous monitoring of leaks from oil and gas operations

Thu, 22 Mar 18 00:13:40 -0700

Researchers have conducted the first field tests for a new laser-based system that could one day be used to continuously monitor for costly and dangerous methane leaks at oil and gas production sites.

Natural enemies reduce pesticide use

Tue, 20 Mar 18 00:15:40 -0700

Crop variety in agriculture has a positive impact on the natural enemies of aphids. Farmers can use this insight to keep aphids at bay and cut down on pesticides.

Revolutionary new filter can improve drinking water quality

Mon, 19 Mar 18 00:00:10 -0700

UNSW Sydney scientists have developed a world-first, graphene-based, laboratory-scale filter that can remove more than 99 percent of the natural organic matter left behind during conventional treatment of drinking water. The filter is being scaled up for possible use in conventional plants.

Historians to climate researchers: Let's talk

Mon, 19 Mar 18 00:13:40 -0700

Ours is not the first society to be confronted by massive environmental change. Over the course of history, some societies have been destroyed by natural disasters, like Pompeii, while others have learned how to accommodate floods, droughts, volcanic eruptions and other natural hazards. The key is how a society plans for and interacts with the stress from nature, say Princeton University historians John Haldon and Lee Mordechai.

Five new species of frogs identified in museum collections

Mon, 19 Mar 18 00:08:00 -0700

Researchers from Yale-NUS College and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences have discovered five new species of Southeast Asian frogs from a group of museum specimens that was believed to only contain two species. To distinguish the five new species from the original two, they examined almost 400 frogs from 11 natural history museum collections and sequenced five genes from close to 350 individuals. The research was recently published in the PLOS ONE.

Living sensor can potentially prevent environmental disasters from fuel spills
By the time a Colonial Pipeline leak was detected last fall during a routine inspection, vapors from the quarter-million gallons of released gasoline were so strong they prevented pipeline repair for days. Now, scientists report technology that would alert pipeline managers about leaks much earlier, avoiding the environmental disasters and fuel distribution disruptions resulting from pipeline leaks. The researchers present their work today at the 255th National Meeting
