Nuclear Transmutations

Scientists have developed a new technique to make nuclear waste safer by transforming it into stable elements, inspired by neutron star observations, promising advancements in clean energy and waste management.

Retreating Futures

New satellite data and machine learning models predicts a third of European Alps’ glaciers will retreat by 2050.

Changing Matter

The composition of tiny airborne particles, called particulate matter, causes various changes in lung cells, impacting both their behaviour at a molecular level and their appearance.

Driven by Drought

Research on Africa from 1992-2013 shows droughts influence human migration towards water sources or cities, driven by environmental, political, and socio-economic factors.

Sulphuric Shadows

Particulate matter pollution from coal power plants, has resulted in approximately 460,000 deaths in the United States over the past two decades.

The Bee’s Vapid Poison

Bees cannot detect common lethal pesticides in nectar, risking inadvertent consumption and population decline.

Dissolving Depths

Increased carbon emissions are acidifying oceans, weakening the shells of plankton and marine life, threatening ecosystems.

Soiled Stowaways

Overseas shipping containers may introduce harmful organisms to local environments, potentially causing huge risks to biosecurity protection.

After the Flames

Smoke infiltration indoors after a wildfire carries volatile chemicals that present health challenges. Cleaning proves more effective than ventilation or air purifiers in reducing indoor smoke pollutants.

Flukes and Floats

Reducing fishing gear more effectively prevents humpback whale entanglements in California’s Dungeness crab industry compared to costly, data-intensive dynamic management strategies, ensuring marine safety and uninterrupted fishing.
