Measuring soil carbon flux, also known as soil respiration, can be expensive or time-consuming. A set of affordable robots that gather these data autonomously could especially benefit the Global South.
Amateur radio operators who study space physics and the upper atmosphere probed the ionosphere’s response to the 2023 annular solar eclipse using shortwave transmissions.
Researchers are developing environmentally friendly instruments to monitor the oceans.
A new method could translate satellite information about sea surface heights into insights on current, heat flow, and—ultimately—climate change.
Unprecedented images reveal how Saturn’s atmosphere is evolving as summertime winds down in its northern hemisphere.
A new fog harvester could benefit communities that lack access to clean freshwater.
Combining traditional human-curated syntheses of scientific research with the search and visualization tools of artificial intelligence could guide researchers through avalanches of publications.
A method typically used to date sediments shows promise for documenting tropical storms through history—information needed for future projections of storm activity.
Combining data from several of the Perseverance rover’s spectroscopic sensors offers a more accurate means to classify carbonate minerals that may hold hints of ancient life.
