Blocking sunlight to cool Earth won't reduce crop damage from global warming

Added: 17.08.2018 22:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Proposals to inject sulfate aerosols into the upper atmosphere to block and scatter sunlight and reduce global temperatures could, some say, also increase crop yields because of reduced heat stress on plants. A new study shows that other effects counterbalance the positive effects of reduced heat stress. Specifically, blocking sunlight reduces photosynthesis, which offsets any improvement from slightly cooler temperatures. The team based their analysis on the effects from two previous volcanic eruptions.

| Weatherwatch: August 1990 was a real scorcher

Added: 17.08.2018 21:30 | 17 views | 0 comments


The temperature record set in 1911 was broken early in August 1990, causing widespread disruption, including at a chocolate factory in Liverpool, where the entire stock melted
August is usually the hottest month in the UK, though of course temperatures do vary hugely from place-to-place and year-to-year. But few of us who were around at the time can forget the , which broke the UK temperature record that had stood for almost 80 years.
The record-breaking figure came from Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, on 3 August, when temperatures peaked at 37.1C (almost 99F). This comfortably broke the previous figure of 36.7C (98F) set at various locations in the famously hot summer of 1911.

Smallest transistor switches current with a single atom in solid electrolyte

Added: 17.08.2018 17:22 | 11 views | 0 comments

Researchers have developed a single-atom transistor, the world's smallest. This quantum electronics component switches electrical current by controlled repositioning of a single atom, now also in the solid state in a gel electrolyte. The single-atom transistor works at room temperature and consumes very little energy, which opens up entirely new perspectives for information technology.

Researchers Discover New Molecular Properties of Water

Added: 17.08.2018 15:24 | 10 views | 0 comments

Water has numerous anomalous properties, many of which remain poorly understood. One of its intriguing behaviors is that it exhibits the so-called temperature of maximum density (TMD) at 3.98 degrees Celsius (39.16 degrees Fahrenheit). In a new study published in the journal Physical Review Letters, researchers at New York University provide experimental evidence for previously unknown [...]

Meteorite bombardment likely to have created the Earth's oldest rocks

Added: 16.08.2018 21:19 | 2 views | 0 comments

Scientists have found that 4.02-billion-year-old silica-rich felsic rocks from the Acasta River, Canada -- the oldest rock formation known on Earth -- probably formed at high temperatures and at a surprisingly shallow depth of the planet's nascent crust. The high temperatures needed to melt the shallow crust were likely caused by a meteorite bombardment around half a billion years after the planet formed.

Illness at Ohio Chipotle caused by food-borne bacteria: local officials

Added: 16.08.2018 18:56 | 7 views | 0 comments

A type of bacteria found in meat and pre-cooked food left at unsafe temperatures was responsible for sickening hundreds of people who ate at a Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant in Ohio, local health officials said on Thursday.
