Clarifying the mechanism for suppressing turbulence through ion mass

Added: 24.04.2017 21:49 | 1 views | 0 comments

Scientists have clarified through theory and simulation research that turbulence in a plasma confined in the magnetic field is suppressed and the heat and particle losses are reduced in cases with larger ion mass. This research provides a novel understanding for clarifying the 'ion mass effect' which has been a riddle since the beginning of fusion and plasma research.

West Virginia groundwater not affected by fracking, but surface water is

Added: 24.04.2017 21:32 | 3 views | 0 comments

Three years of fracking has not contaminated groundwater in northwestern West Virginia, but accidental spills of wastewater from fracked wells may pose a threat to surface water, according to a new study. The scientists used a broad suite of geochemical and isotopic tracers to sample for contaminants in 112 water wells near shale gas sites, including 20 wells that were sampled both before and after fracking began.
