Georgia Tech develops mass spectrometry device that analyzes proteins faster and at a lower cost
... ionization (ESI), a process that produces ions by evaporating
charged droplets obtained through spraying or bubbling. Georgia Tech's AMUSE (Array of Micromachined Ultra Sonic Electrospray) technology has several key advantages over currently available electrospray methods. In AMUSE, the sample aerosolization an...
Study: Temperate forests could worsen global warming
...hat while tropical forests help keep Earth cool by evaporating
a great deal of water, northern forests tend to warm the Earth because they absorb a lot of sunlight without losing much moisture. In one simulation, the researchers covered much of the northern hemisphere (above 20 latitude) with forests and saw a j...
Climate change not the only factor controlling distribution of plant species
...a single variable representing the amount of water evaporating
off the land can explain the distribution of western hemlock quite well in the coastal region, but large areas of the Rocky Mountain region matched climatic patterns much less closely. Spatial analyses also suggested that hemlock in the Rocky Mount...

...monthly journal. In the report, Sommer describes evaporating
tiny drops of water laced with polystyrene nanospheres to form the transparent igloos. The drops consisted of 15-microliters of liquid 15 millionths of a liter and formed the translucent "igloos" after being deposited on a surface under an evaporat...
Global warming is evaporating Arctic ponds, new study shows
...ol and Douglas. Instead, the high Arctic ponds are evaporating
due to warming. By measuring changes in water quality over their 24-year sampling window, they have shown that the concentration of salts has been steadily increasing. Using the analogy of a pot of soup simmering on a stove, Dr. Smol explains: If y...
