  • UNEP supported polar boat breaks free of Arctic pack ice

    Tara, the UNEP supported polar boat, has broken free from the Arctic ice sheet after a record breaking scientific expedition across the top of the world. Wedged in the pack ice, Tara 'drifted' with the wind and ocean currents at an average speed of 10 km/h for more than 500 days. In one and half years she covered 5,200 kilometers in the Arctic, and at one point was only 160 kilometers from the ...

  • Gold Deposits Imaged with the SuperStingR8 in Yukon, Canada

    Resistivity and IP data measured with the SuperStingR8 WiFi, Android App, AGI cable and EarthImager software were used to image gold deposits confirmed by drill cores in the Yukon Territory of Canada. AGI SuperStingR8 induced polarization and resistivity data were successfully used to locate and map economically important gold deposits in high resolution using relatively low weight and low ...

  • Global warming caused by CFCs, not carbon dioxide, study says

    Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are to blame for global warming since the 1970s and not carbon dioxide, according to new research from the University of Waterloo published in the International Journal of Modern Physics B this week. CFCs are already known to deplete ozone, but in-depth statistical analysis now shows that CFCs are also the key driver in global climate change, rather than carbon ...
