Researchers discover higher environmental impact from cookstove emissions

Top Story According to new quantitative research findings, particulate emissions from cookstoves in India have been underestimated. Researchers spent 20 days running a series of tests in Raipur, a city in central India, where more than three-quarters of the families use cookstoves to prepare their meals. Cookstoves are a central part of millions of homes […]

This capability could lead to a revolutionary handheld disease diagnostic system that could be run on a smartphone. Graphene, a material made […]

Researchers pin down one source of a potent greenhouse gas

Researchers pin down one source of a potent greenhouse gas

Top Story A study of a Lake Erie wetland suggests that scientists have vastly underestimated the number of places methane-producing microbes can survive and, as a result, today’s global climate models may be misjudging the amount of methane being released into the atmosphere. The researchers describe the discovery of the first known methane-producing microbe that […]
