  • Martian data and PANalytical X-ray analysis help confirm new mineral species

    Inspired by data sent from NASA robots on Mars, Dr. Ronald Peterson, Professor of Geology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada, has observed a new mineral species on Earth, and predicts that it also exists on Mars. The mineral, meridianiite (MgSO411H2O), was named in acknowledgement of the cratered plain of Meridiani Planum on Mars, where one of the NASA robots is operating. Integral ...

  • Climate change could be double-edged sword for farmers

    On a global level, climate change could slash crop yields and increase reliance on irrigation in the 2030s, but in some regions, including Southern Africa, agricultural output could increase and farming become less dependent on water, according to a study published last month (27 February). The researchers, based in Canada, China and Switzerland, set out to predict the combined impact of  ...

  • Cutting emissions is ‘perfect option’

    There is no alternative. To limit global warming and contain climate change, societies have no real option but to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, according to new research. There might be additional useful steps that nations could take, but nothing will be as effective as simply not burning fossil fuels. Daniela Cusack, a geographer at the University of California Los ...
