( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The low pressure area known as System 94L developed into Tropical Storm Ian on Sept. 14. NOAA's GOES-East satellite data was made into an animation that showed the development of the central Atlantic storm.
( University of British Columbia) New UBC research finds that many online resources for preventing Alzheimer's disease are problematic and could be steering people in the wrong direction.
( Climate-KIC) Participants will use big data to find new ways to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation grid of North America's fourth largest city -- in a cost-neutral way.
( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite measured cloud top temperatures as it passed over Tropical Storm Malakas in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and found strong storms.
( Georgia Institute of Technology) Fabrics that can generate electricity from physical movement have been in the works for a few years. Now researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have taken the next step, developing a fabric that can simultaneously harvest energy from both sunshine and motion.
( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) After Tropical Depression 19W moved ashore in central Vietnam NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the system and found some powerful thunderstorms over Thailand, Vietnam and Laos capable of dropping heavy rainfall.
( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) This week, at the International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are presenting a new programming language, called Milk, that lets application developers manage memory more efficiently in programs that deal with scattered data points in large data sets.
( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Orlene reached peak strength as the Suomi NPP satellite passed overhead.On Sept. 12 at 5 p.m. EDT Orlene's maximum sustained winds reached 110 mph (175 kph) and became a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
( Case Western Reserve University) Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are developing methods for more effectively using a magnetic resonance imager (MRI) to guide a robotically controlled biopsy needle or heart catheter around organs, muscles and bones to their target tissue. A four-year, $1 million National Science Foundation grant supports the project.
( Tufts University) Tufts University researchers have discovered a new technique for generating rapidly-differentiating human neural stem cells for use in a variety of tissue engineering applications, including a three-dimensional model of the human brain, according to a paper published today in Stem Cell Reports.
