A new study shows how muons can be used to study tide and wave phenomena, helping secure coastal communities.
High-Definition Imaging of the Subsurface with Cosmic Ray Muons
A new book describes muography, an imaging technique that can be used to visualize the internal density composition of geological structures.
Are Cosmic Rays a Key to Forecasting Volcanic Eruptions?
A combination of relativistic particles and artificial intelligence may provide a new way to forecast when a volcano could erupt.
Trying Out Muons to Detect Carbon Leaks
Scientists look into tracking carbon dioxide within a sequestration reservoir—and spotting possible leaks—by observing naturally generated, fast-moving muons that penetrate the underground storage area.
