Insights into sediment flow processes can help to better understand the feasibility of turbidite as an earthquake indicator in a specific subaqueous environment

We investigated homogeneous muds, turbidites, and debris that were preserved in a 457-m deep ICDP drilling (220-0 ka) from the Dead Sea depocenter. Based on previous flash flood measuring, surface plume monitoring, and sediment traps monitoring in the lake center, we link homogeneous muds in the deep core to overflows, and link turbidites and debris … Read more

Something’s Glowing at The Galactic Core, And We Could Be Closer to Solving The Mystery

Something deep in the heart of the Milky Way galaxy is glowing with gamma radiation, and nobody can figure out for sure what it might be. Colliding dark matter has been proposed, ruled out, and then tentatively reconsidered. Dense, rapidly rotating objects called pulsars were also considered as candidate sources of the high-energy rays, before … Read more

One of The Solar System’s Best Candidates For Alien Life Has Signs of Liquid Water

Strange double ridges on the surface of Jupiter’s ice moon Europa could be signposts to shallow reservoirs of water. An analysis of a similar feature on the Greenland ice sheet shows that, here on Earth, these ridges can be created by pockets of liquid water contained within the ice itself. This finding offers some new … Read more

Juno spacecraft discovered clues about mysterious processes creating the dance of the auroral footprints — ScienceDaily

On November 8, 2020, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew through an intense beam of electrons traveling from Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon, to its auroral footprint on the gas giant. Southwest Research Institute scientists used data from Juno’s payload to study the particle population traveling along the magnetic field line connecting Ganymede to Jupiter while, at the … Read more

New tissue-clearing method could speed the study of many disease-related biological processes

Scientists at Scripps Research have unveiled a new tissue-clearing method for rendering large biological samples transparent. The method makes it easier than ever for scientists to visualize and study healthy and disease-related biological processes occurring across multiple organ systems. Described in a paper in Nature Methods on March 28, 2022, and dubbed HYBRiD, the new … Read more

High-speed shearing can intensify the chemical processes – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Chemical products are ubiquitous in our daily lives, including various fibers to fabricate the clothes, the ingredients in cosmetics and toothpastes, the cathode and anode materials in batteries of electric vehicles, etc. All these chemicals are produced by chemical processes consisting of chemical reactions and a series of mixing and separation units. Chemical products are … Read more

Understanding the molecular evolution processes underlying placenta acquisition in eutherian ancestors – BIOENGINEER.ORG

The molecular evolution of placental protein NRK and its function in regulating placental growth has finally been clarified by researchers from Tokyo Tech. They elucidated that eutherian NRK regulates placental development by a novel mechanism, modulating the CK2-PTEN-AKT pathway. They also determined that this new function was acquired due to the amazingly rapid molecular evolution … Read more

Anaerobic processes fuel carbon dioxide production in Tonle Sap Lake – BIOENGINEER.ORG

In recent years, research has increasingly shown that the sharp lines thought to separate aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems are more blurred than previously believed, leaving unanswered questions as to where one stops and the other begins. Credit: Benjamin L. Miller / University of Washington In recent years, research has increasingly shown that the sharp lines … Read more

What can droplet wetting tell us about disease transmissions, industrial processes? – BIOENGINEER.ORG

At the start of the pandemic, University of Oklahoma researcher Sepideh Razavi remembers people frantically wiping down groceries, cleaning food packaging and sanitizing every surface possible.
