A new research offers insight into ways through which cities and forests can be managed to cool planet Earth. Scientists at the Cornell University have employed drone technology to more precisely estimate surface reflectivity on the landscape—a technological progress that can provide an innovative technique for managing climate change.
EPFL Researchers, in collaboration with other institutes, have developed a robotic eel that can swim through contaminated water to locate the source of the pollution. This sensor-equipped robot can be controlled by a remote control or move on its own.
Researchers from UPM use a multi-robot team to measure environmental variables of greenhouses and to ease the continuous monitoring of crop conditions.
Artificially intelligent computer software that can learn, adapt and rebuild itself in real-time could help combat climate change.
The growth in improved mapping solutions provides new opportunities to carry out research work in the monitoring of built and natural environments. Obtaining access to high quality data on the territory enhances the understanding of complex phenomena, such as the influence of climate change on the environment.
A project involving scientists from the UK and India to predict monsoon rainfall by studying ocean processes in the Bay of Bengal launches today.
The rapidly melting ice sheets on the coast of West Antarctica are a potential major contributor to rising ocean levels worldwide. Although warm water near the coast is thought to be the main factor causing the ice to melt, the process by which this water ends up near the cold continent is not well understood.
The global proliferation of disease-based regional and national biobanks for clinical research has triggered a massive interest in long-term sample storage conditions. Simultaneously, it has spawned a requirement for good storage practices and standard operating procedures (SOPs).
National Technical Systems, Inc. (NTS), a leading provider of testing and engineering services, announced today that it has signed a $1.6 million contract with Sandia National Laboratories to continue the development of the Harvester project, a program authorized by the U.S. Department of Energy dedicated to monitoring nuclear emissions in the atmosphere through the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also called drones.
The fifth China Arctic research expedition trip has witnessed the first field test of robotic fish in Polar Regions ever in the history of China.
