Science & Hi Tech: A Buoy's Long Strange Trip
Posted by ginamc on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 @ 07:10:00 GMT (649 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

WHOI Western Ireland is cool and rainy in late September—good weather for ducks. Irish filmmaker Fergus Sweeney was walking along Blacksod Bay, County Mayo, last fall, when he saw a big round object washed ashore in the distance. It was bright yellow, the colour of a rubber duck, but nearly as a big as a bathtub.

Sweeney took a closer look and saw that it was an oceanographic buoy. But where had it come from, what was it for, and what brought it to Ireland?

Science & Hi Tech: Underwater Stone Age Atlantis Discovered: 11,000 Year-Old Settlement Discovered Under The Baltic Sea
Posted by DT_Sam on Thursday, February 20, 2014 @ 17:30:42 GMT (627 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

Divers in Sweden have discovered a collection of Stone Age artifacts buried beneath the Baltic Sea. 

Archaeologists believe the relics were left by Swedish nomads over 11,000 years ago, and the discovery may be the oldest ever found in the Nordic region.  The find has been dubbed 'Sweden's Atlantis', after the relics were found in amazing preserved condition.  At this point, there is speculation that the settlement was swallowed by the sea, in much the same way as the myth of Atlantis.

Science & Hi Tech: Gimme Swelter: We Explain The UK and US Heatwave's
Posted by ginamc on Monday, July 29, 2013 @ 07:00:00 GMT (640 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

New Scientist After the cold, the heat. High pressure spreading across the UK from Siberia last spring brought record cold temperatures. Now more high pressure, this time from the tropical Atlantic, is bringing a sweltering heatwave. These high-pressure zones are blocking the jet stream which usually brings the country's normal changeable weather. "Blocking highs" are an increasing theme of North American weather reports too, bringing concern of a long-term shift. New Scientist looks at the issues.

Science & Hi Tech: Starfish Eyes Are Good Enough To Show Them The Way Home
Posted by ginamc on Monday, July 15, 2013 @ 07:00:00 GMT (2315 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

New Scientist Starfish use the light-sensitive organs at the tips of their arms to form images, helping the animals find their way home if they stray from the reef.

We have known about the sensors that starfish have at the ends of their arms for 200 years, but no one knew whether they are real eyes that form images or simply structures that detect changes in light intensity.

Science & Hi Tech: Peugeot and Total Prepare for the Future with the Technology Demonstrator 208 HY
Posted by ginamc on Monday, March 04, 2013 @ 07:05:00 GMT (2167 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

Total Continuing years of commitment to improving vehicle energy performance, Peugeot and Total are combining their capacity for innovation once more in a breakthrough project: the 208 HYbrid FE. The aim is to design a vehicle combining real driving pleasure (0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in just 8.0 seconds) and low emissions of CO2 (49g/km). This technological demonstrator will benefit from Peugeot and Total's latest innovations in aerodynamics, weight-saving and drivetrains. The performance of this technological demonstrator will be achieved without the use of a top-up energy source (non plug-in petrol technology) and taking as its base an already very efficient production vehicle. 49g CO2/km, 0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in 8 seconds… This means halving the emissions of the most economical of the petrol engines (Fuel Economy) while obtaining acceleration worthy of a small sports car (so Fun and Efficient).

Science & Hi Tech: Total Introduces Awango By Total, Solar Solutions To Improve Access To Energy
Posted by ginamc on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 @ 07:40:00 GMT (654 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

Total To enable off-grid, low-income communities to meet some of their most basic everyday needs, Total has introducedAwango by Total, a line of innovative, reliable solar lighting and phone charging solutions. 

Energy is an essential driver of social and economic development. Yet access to electricity is a daily struggle for 1.3 billion people worldwide1 . Their traditional lighting sources — kerosene lamps, candles and disposable batteries — are inefficient, unsuited to new uses and account for a significant percentage of spending by base of the pyramid households.

Science & Hi Tech: First seabed sonar to measure marine energy effect on environment and wildlife
Posted by jamesmc on Monday, July 16, 2012 @ 07:30:00 GMT (637 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

First seabed sonar to measure marine energy effect on environment and wildlifeUK scientists will measure the effect on the marine environment and wildlife of devices that harness tide and wave energy using sonar technology that has, for the first time, been successfully deployed on the seabed.

Renewable energy from tidal currents can be generated using turbines in the tidal flow, and wave energy can be captured in a number of different ways. FLOWBEC (Flow and Benthic Ecology 4D) is a three-year, £1.2 million project that brings together a consortium of researchers to investigate the effects of such devices by monitoring environment and wildlife behaviour at UK test sites, the first of which is the tidal energy test area of the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney.

Science & Hi Tech: No matter the drilling method, natural gas is a much-needed tool to battle global warming
Posted by jamesmc on Thursday, July 12, 2012 @ 08:22:35 GMT (735 reads)
SCIENCE & TECH NEWS

No matter the drilling method, natural gas is a much-needed tool to battle global warming  No matter how you drill it, using natural gas as an energy source is a smart move in the battle against global climate change and a good transition step on the road toward low-carbon energy from wind, solar and nuclear power.

 
That is the conclusion of a new study by Cornell Professor Lawrence M. Cathles, published in the most recent edition of the peer-reviewed journal Geochemistry, Geophysics and Geosystems. Cathles, a faculty member in Cornell's Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, reviewed the most recent government and industry data on natural gas "leakage rates" during extraction, as well as recently developed climate models.
