Ancient changes along the Hudson offer glimpse into how ice sheets grew

Ancient changes along the Hudson offer glimpse into how ice sheets grew | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
In a kind of geological mystery, scientists have known for decades that a massive ice sheet stretched to cover most of Canada and much of the northeastern U.S. 25,000 years ago. What's been trickier to pin down is how—and especially how quickly—it reached its ultimate size.

Aquifers for environmentally compatible cooling and heating

Aquifers for environmentally compatible cooling and heating | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
In this year's record summer, everybody wishes to have a cooled home or office. But air conditioning systems consume a lot of energy and are far from being environmentally compatible. Researchers of the GeoSpeicher.bw project coordinated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are studying alternatives with a reduced energy consumption. These include storage and later retrieval of heat and cold in underground water-bearing layers, so-called aquifers.

War on sharks: How rogue fishing fleets plunder the ocean's top predator

War on sharks: How rogue fishing fleets plunder the ocean's top predator | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
It was billed as the biggest poaching bust in history, a monumental win for conservationists. An Ecuadorean Navy patrol vessel, guided by advanced radar and a small plane, bore down on a ship the length of a football field making a beeline across the Galapagos Marine Reserve – probably the most fiercely protected waters in the world.

New zebrafish models will accelerate studies of the human skeleton and osteoporosis

New zebrafish models will accelerate studies of the human skeleton and osteoporosis | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Although much scientific research has been done into the development of the skeleton, the underlying mechanisms that drive the formation and maintenance of bones are still not very well understood, and research into the development of bone remains of enormous importance. To date, 20 percent of women at the age of 65 years develop osteoporosis, and 40 percent of elderly men suffering a hip fracture die within the year during the recovery. Skeletal diseases are still among the most frequent syndromes in Western population that result in high mortality, urging scientists to research into better cures.
