Tsunami Signals: A New Method to Measure Glacier Shrinking
International Scientists have employed a new method utilizing tsunami signals to calculate the calving magnitude of an ocean-terminating glacier in northwestern Greenland, uncovering correlations between calving flux and environmental factors such as air temperature, ice speed, and ocean tides. more
Switzerland: Behaviour of granular substances
When Sand Flows
Sand, coffee grounds and rice behave very differently than water or oil, but under certain conditions they will suddenly exhibit astonishing similarities. Scientists oft the ETH Zurich in collaboration with international colleagues have found a way to better understand the behaviour of granular materials. more

USA/Canada: Biology and Climate Change
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. more
