Oceans more vulnerable to agricultural runoff than previously thought, study finds

...eviously assumed. The study is based on satellite imagery of Mexico's Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez-a narrow, 700-mile-long stretch of the Pacific Ocean that separates the Mexican mainland from the Baja California Peninsula. The area is a hotspot of marine biodiversity and one of Mexic...

Finding hidden invaders in a Hawaiian rain forest

...rica invasion is in its early stages. The aircraft imagery also showed us how the forest canopy chemistry is changing as a result of the invader." The study is published in the March 7-11, 2005, early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The new methods are exciting because...

Stumpf said he is collaborating with Carnegie Mellon researchers to devise a way to simply convert harmful algae data into an image field that can be easily accessed to map out the deadly algae's location and where it may tr...

Researchers find how some antibiotics kill bacteria

.... But the new study used recent advances in X-ray imagery to obtain the highest resolution figures ever available of how rifamycins bind to their targets. With these new images, the researchers found ?for the first time - that these drugs remove a key component of the bacteria they attack. The researchers w...

NASA satellite data provides rapid analysis of Amazon deforestation

NASA study: Alaskan fires affected Houston air quality in 2004

... In the new study, Morris and colleagues relied on imagery from NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on the Terra satellite, aerosol data from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer satellite, and carbon monoxide data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder on the Aqua spacecraft. They tracked an...

Shrinking ponds signal warmer, dryer Alaska

...ts kind analysis of fifty years of remotely sensed imagery from the 1950s to 2002 shows a dramatic reduction in the size and number of more than 10,000 ponds in Alaska. The analysis, by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists and published this week in the Journal of Geophysical Research, indicates that th...

NASA satellite data helps assess the health of Florida's coral reef

Preliminary study finds holographic imaging system promising for cancer treatment planning

..."PerspectaRAD" Spatial 3D system generates true 3D imagery with a full 360-degree field of view. Using high-speed electronics, a CT scan is projected onto a screen spinning inside a 24-inch transparent dome. The screen, spinning at over 900 rotations per minute, forms a detailed, holographic image that can ...

The research suggests that as the disease progresses and the probability for an external event to function as a link between response and consequence becomes progr...

CSIRO imagery shows Outer Great Barrier Reef at risk from river plumes

A stunning series of satellite imagery of Australia's Great Barrier Reef released by the CSIRO shows for the first time visual confirmation of the theory that sediment plumes travel to the outer reef, and beyond. The remotely sensed images, taken from February 9 to 13 this year, challe...
