A New Dimension for Batteries

Engineers at the University of Maryland have created a thin battery, made of a few million carefully constructed “microbatteries” in a square inch. Each microbattery is shaped like a very tall, round room, providing much surface area – like wall space – on which nano-thin battery layers are assembled.

Natural Mechanism Could Lower Emissions From Tropical Peatlands

Scientists have long feared that as Earth warms, tropical peatlands -- which store up to 10 percent of the planet’s soil carbon -- could dry out, decay and release vast pools of carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere, rapidly accelerating climate change. A new international study headed by researchers at Florida State University and Duke University, reveals the outlook may not be as bleak.

‘Cloud Computing’ Takes on New Meaning for Scientists

Clouds may be wispy puffs of water vapor drifting through the sky, but they’re heavy lifting computationally for scientists wanting to factor them into climate simulations. Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and Columbia University have turned to data science to achieve better cumulus calculating results.
