An empirical model of 55 of California's major reservoirs reveals how they respond to shifting drought conditions and to one another.
Researchers at IMDEA Networks (Spain) in collaboration with University of Haifa (Israel) have developed an underwater acoustic system for the localization of marine mammals, underwater vehicles and other sound sources in the ocean, using no more than a single hydrophone (basically an underwater microphone) as a receiver.
In the last issue of the prestigious journal EMS Surveys in Mathematical Sciences published by the European Mathematical Society there appeared a 102 pages long paper entitled 'Numerical infinities and infinitesimals: Methodology, applications, and repercussions on two Hilbert problems' written by Yaroslav D. Sergeyev, Professor at Lobachevsky State University in Nizhni Novgorod, Russia and Distinguished Professor at the University of Calabria, Italy.
Researchers have constructed a big data, evolutionary taxonomy of the world's constitutions resulting in a mathematically-derived genealogy of founding documents.
William Schuler, Ph.D., a linguistics professor at The Ohio State University, is part of a project to develop technology for languages about which translators and linguists know nothing. As part of LORELEI, Schuler and his team are using the Ohio Supercomputer Center to develop a grammar acquisition algorithm.
A study of an unusual snapping turtle with one lung found shared characteristics with humans born with one lung who survive beyond infancy. Digital 3-D anatomical models created by Emma Schachner, PhD, Assistant Professor of Cell Biology & Anatomy at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, made the detailed research possible.
The secrets of 17th century artists can now be revealed, thanks to 21st century signal processing. Using modern high-speed scanners and the advanced signal processing techniques, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are peering through layers of pigment to see how painters prepared their canvasses, applied undercoats, and built up layer upon layer of paint to produce their masterpieces.
A new method to predict human mobility - which can be used to chart the potential spread of disease or determine rush hour bottlenecks -- has been developed by a team of researchers, including one from Arizona State University.
UCLA researchers have designed a new device that can inexpensively and efficiently create and store energy and create hydrogen fuel, and that needs only sunlight to operate.
Using a simple 'mirror trick' and not-so-simple computational analysis, scientists affiliated with the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) have considerably improved the speed, efficiency, and resolution of a light-sheet microscope, with broad applications for enhanced imaging of live cells and embryos.
