1 of deep ocean's most turbulent areas has big impact on climate

...er that is closer to the surface much as you would mix cream into coffee by stirring it with a spoon. We know that the mixing of warm surface water with very cold deep water is one of several factors that influence the Earth's climate, he said. The mixing we observed and measured for our study allows t...

The research shows that erosion rates consistently exceed 1 millimeter a year less than a half-inch per decade only in steep alpine terrain, and plowed fields erode at about the same pace as the Himalayas, home to th...

Riparian services provide numerous ecosystem services beyond nitrogen removal, and although buffer width, dimension, and vegetation type provide benefits such as stream shading and ...

After a decades-long search, scientists identify new genetic risk factors for multiple sclerosis

...could shed new light on what causes MS a puzzling mix of genes, environment and immunity and on potential treatments for at least 350,000 Americans who have the disease. "These studies describe the first genes conclusively linked to MS in more than 20 years," said Ursula Utz, Ph.D., a program directo...

This process of subdivision into compartments also takes place during the formation of the vertebrate central nervo...

Soil particles found to boost prion's capacity to infect

... the montmorillonite." Feeding the prion-mineral mix to hamsters, a common animal model for prion disease, Aiken's team expected to see a lower rate of infection than animals dosed with pure agent. Surprisingly, prions bound to montmorillonite were significantly more infectious than prions alone. "We...

Fat kills cancer

...ey are also found in the mass of normal cells that mix with cancer cells to make up a solid tumor. Researchers believe mesenchymal stem cells see a tumor as a damaged organ and migrate to it, and so might be utilized as a vehicle for treatment that can find both primary tumors and small metastases. These...

The highest incidence of landslides in the area (14.3 percent) occurs on bedrock from the oldest geologic era represented, the Cretaceous Pugo Formation of volcanic rock, which ac...

The cause of Pleistocene extinction (called the megafaunal extinction because of the large size of many of its victims) is controversial. It has been variously blamed on human hunting or climate change, or on a combinatio...

On-farm research shows farmers that they can use less nitrogen

None of the 16 first-year corn trials evaluated in 2005-06 responded to additional nitrogen after the starter fertilizer, said Cornell graduate student Joseph Lawrence. This indicates that the forage grass and/or legume gave enough...

Existence of muscle-building stem cells points to regenerative therapies for muscular disease
