New research suggests that to minimize radiation risk for human exploration of Mars, astronauts will need to dig deep for safety.
Changes in sea surface temperature during ENSO events and radiation are related, suggesting a two-way coupling between sea surface temperature and radiation in coupled climate variability.
A study of the impacts of radiative interactions with different cloud types on aggregation of rainstorms finds that interactions with high-clouds and water vapor are key.
Satellite data has been used to correct the aerosol loading and land surface albedo in several AeroCom models, which has improved shortwave flux biases between models and observations.
Trapped ions discovered at midlatitudes can have energies exceeding 100 megaelectron volts per nucleon. Their detection adds to our understanding of the powerful radiation environment around Jupiter.
Proxima Centauri recently let loose a blast of radiation, and ground- and space-based telescopes detected the record-setting event at wavelengths ranging from radio to the ultraviolet.
Simulations of radiation storm fluxes on real flight paths highlight how severe space weather could expose aircrew and passengers on busy transatlantic routes to significant radiation doses.
En un innovador ensayo clínico se estudia el impacto del zinc en la mitigación de los efectos sobre la salud relacionados con la minería de uranio. Éste se lleva a cabo mediante la “participación bidireccional” entre los Navajos y las comunidades médicas.
An innovative clinical trial uses “two-way participation” between Navajo and medical communities to study the impact of zinc on mitigating health effects associated with uranium mining.
The radioactive remains of nuclear testing during the Cold War and from nuclear disasters like Chernobyl are still with us and can be found in some of the remotest glaciers on Earth.
