Geoengineering to Block Sunlight Cooling Effects Could Prove Difficult to Measure
When trying to measure geoengineering effects, researchers can control for some of that variability, which is cyclical -- sort of like turning the music volume down in the ... could engineer clouds and use instruments to detect changes in them.
New Hand-Held, Lasers and Sound Waves-Based Device to Treat Melanoma
The instrument, described in a paper published today in The Optical Society's (OSA) journal Optics Letters, is the first that can be used directly on a patient ... is that it can measure a tumor's entire volume—something that's never been possible ...
Seven (Mostly) Scientific Devices for Measuring Sexual Arousal
Scientists can measure atoms and they can measure the distance from our sun to the edges of the universe. So of course they also have instruments ... use. I should hope so! But a lot of women might want something a little more intimate to measure their ...
What is the Shape of the Universe?
As a result, the density of the universe — how much mass it has spread over its volume — determines its shape ... proportional to the square of the Hubble constant, which is used in measuring the expansion rate of the universe. Comparing the critical ...
Researcher develops more accurate method to measure surface meltwater volume of Greenland ice sheet
Carl Legleiter, a UW assistant professor of geography, readies an unmanned drone boat before sending it out to record depth and brightness of a water body on the surface of the Greenland ... instrument payload also included an echo sounder, used to measure ...
