  • Researchers Recreate European Weather

    A comprehensive analysis project will recreate the weather across Europe for the past 30 years. Precipitation, temperature, wind and air pressure, etc. are described at ground level and 30 km up in the atmosphere. The result is highly interesting for research and climate adaptation alike. Satellite information, weather reports and many computing hours on powerful supercomputers are behind the ...

  • Climate research goes to India

    The HyCAMP project (see below) will enable a series of activities designed to raise the current level of understanding regarding the hydrologic sensitivity in the Hindu Kush, Karakoram and Himalayan (HKKH) mountain system to interaction between aerosols and the cryosphere. The project will also extend that knowledge to implement improved hydrologic forecasting for Norway. The aerosols in question ...

  • An international feel to Antarctic research

    There is a distinctly cosmopolitan feel around British Antarctic Survey’s Rothera Research Station this month (February). Science teams from eight countries enjoyed Rothera’s hospitality as they passed through on their way home after months working deep field. At one point there were seven Borek aircraft - operated on behalf of three national Antarctic programmes – parked on the apron next to the ...

  • Research on Soil Chamber Pressure Published in Journal of Geophysical Research

    LINCOLN, NEBRASKA - LI-COR Senior Application Scientist Liukang Xu, Ph.D., led a group of LI-COR scientists and engineers in a research effort to examine pressure effects on chamber-based soil CO2 flux measurements. The results of this study were recently published in the Journal of Geophysical Research (JGR), an American Geophysical Union publication. Findings of the research show that ...

  • The Houston advance research center receives $496,000 to improve regional air quality (TX)

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded over $496,000 to the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) to reduce diesel emissions in the Dallas-Forth Worth and Houston-Galveston-Brazoria areas. Part of the reductions will come from installation of auxiliary power units (APU), educational training and outreach to fleet operators. The $496,627 grant aims to significantly reduce emissions ...

  • Magnolia Solar Receives $750,000 Phase II Award From US Air Force Research Laboratory

    Magnolia Solar Corporation (OTCBB: MGLT) ("Magnolia") announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Magnolia Solar, Inc., recently received a $750,000 Phase II award from the United States Air Force Research Laboratory as part of the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program. The award will fund a two-year project to develop flexible, lightweight, ultra-high efficiency ...


  • New balance line for research and science

    University and teaching applications place different requirements on measuring devices: while research and science require accuracy down to the micro range, in education and training robustness is an important criterion. XA balances combine both properties, even for small budgets. The results obtained in research and science have to be accurate, and also reproducible. The high-performance load ...
