UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

...ated. Haymon is interested in the large region of cooling on the sides of the mid-ocean ridge. Possibly 90 percent of the hydrothermal cooling of the sea floor occurs in these flanks, and yet these hydrothermal vents are largely unexplored. Th...

...trification solution. The eggs undergo super-rapid cooling at a rate of more than 20,000ºC per minute, which prevents ice crystal formation and increases egg survival to approximately 90%. The frozen eggs can then be safely stored in the Cryoleaf until it is ready for use, at which point it is carefully thaw...

"Despite ranging widely and foraging deeply in cold waters beyond coastal thermoclines in the northeastern Pacific, elephant seals are impacted significantly by ocean thermal dynamics", conclude the ...

New strategies to reduce hospital-aquired infections

...organisms have been recovered from drinking water, cooling towers and water distribution networks in hospitals. Dr. Cervia presented data on the efficacy of point-of-use 0.2 micron filters to provide a barrier to Legionella and other pathogens to reduce the risks from hospital water. Unlike systemic technol...

Genetic discovery could lead to drought-resistant plants

... of T and the University of Lancaster compared the cooling rates of plants with normal, high and low levels of gene activity. From their data, they were able to link the gene to plant exhalation. The discovery is another step in understanding how plants respond to their environment. In hot temperatures, pla...

Freeze-dried mats of microbes awaken in Antarctic streambed

... species of cyanobacteria, she said. Because of a cooling trend in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, some streambeds that normally have annual summer flows have been dry in recent years, McKnight said. In contrast, the Antarctic Peninsula has warmed nearly 5 degrees Fahrenheit in the past 60 years and has seen the c...

2005 was the warmest year in a century

...ctic. In order to figure out whether the Earth is cooling or warming, the scientists use temperature data from weather stations on land, satellite measurements of sea surface temperature since 1982, and data from ships for earlier years. Previously, the warmest year of the century was 1998, when a strong ...

High-tech tags on marine animals yield valuable data for biologists and oceanographers

Study finds evolution doesn't always favor bigger animals

...years, global climate has been exhibiting a steady cooling trend. But within the last century, as greenhouse emissions have accumulated in our atmosphere, temperatures have rapidly warmed. "If you look at most of life today, they've all been adapted to a world getting gradually cooler," said Roy. "But our ...
