Scientists studying the Northern Lights say they think their research will lead to new technology to reduce outages from satellite navigation systems. Researchers at the University of Bath in England found for the first time that turbulence does not take place within the Northern Lights and instead that unknown mechanisms are responsible for the outages of Global Navigation Satellite Systems. The researchers concluded new technology can be developed to overcome these outages from the Northern L ... read more

Researchers develop equation that helps to explain plant growth
Los Angeles CA (SPX) Mar 09, 2017
It is rare in biology that a single trait can answer questions spanning several fields of research. One such trait is plant biology's "leaf mass per area," a simple measurement calculated by weighing a dried leaf and dividing by its original fresh area. Leaf mass per area, or LMA, which has been measured in thousands of studies, is used in nearly every field of plant biology to make predictions ... more
