Ocean Activity is Key Indicator for Summer Monsoons

MIT scientists have found that an interplay between atmospheric winds and the ocean waters south of India has a major influence over the strength and timing of the South Asian monsoon. Their results may help researchers interpret ancient monsoon variations, predict future activity in the face of climate change. read...

Computing Chip that Works Like a Brain

Researchers from the Universities of Münster (Germany), Oxford and Exeter (both UK) have succeeded in developing a piece of hardware which could pave the way for creating computers which resemble the human brain. The network is able to “learn” information and use this as a basis for computing and recognizing patterns. read...

Predicting Budburst in Spring Through Plant Genetics

Although climate skeptics might find it hard to believe with this year’s endless snow and freezing temperatures in North America, climate change is making warm, sunny early springs increasingly common. And that affects when trees start to leaf out. But how much? A study showed that a plant's genetics can be used to produce more accurate predictions of when its leaves will burst bud in spring. read...
