June 8. Phytoplankton of the Chukchi Sea began to multiply rapidly before the spring has come. Thinning ice algae has provided the necessary sunlight for photosynthesis earlier than it should.

To assess the discovery of scientists from the American Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, to understand the lives of the Arctic Sea, adjacent to the North Pole. These seas, including the Bering and Chukchi seas, rich in nutrients, and the only thing

The upper layers of the soil in some parts of the U.S. contain up to 10,000 percent more cesium than previously thought

The upper layers of the soil in some parts of the U.S. contain up to 10,000 percent more cesium than previously thought Danger Zone

Many people have stopped talking about the consequences of the accident at the nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1", but the pollution continues. The upper layers of the soil in the state of California and the Pacific Northwest are at risk of radiation after the disaster. Soil samples taken from different locations in California, showed that the greatest amount of radioactive cesium, 0.0739 Ci / kg was found in the city of Sacramento. But, according to the scientist

Gamma-ray bursts shed light on the composition of early galaxies

Gamma-ray bursts shed light on the composition of the early galaxies Scientists prove

A team of astronomers studied the light from the gamma-ray bursts GRB 090323, to understand the chemical composition of the two galaxies, young universe. Observations made with the ESO VLT European Southern Observatory experts found that these galaxies are rich in heavier chemical elements than the sun.

The light from the flash GRB 090323 was a parent and a neighboring galaxy. Some colors are usually absorbed by the cold gas around galaxies, leaving a characteristic dark lines in the spectrum. Thanks to gamma-ray bursts GRB 090323, the

Robert Zubrin explains why it is necessary to explore Mars Facts

Aerospace engineer Robert Zubrin is the president and founder of the Mars Society, which promotes the idea of exploration and settlement of Mars. He argues that there are three reasons why you should deal with this issue: for the sake of science, for the stimulus for the future.

Since Mars — the closest planet where life was once possible, and may be, there is now, it is important for science to figure out life as a universal characteristic of the phenomenon of the universe, or only the earth. Exploring

Scientists have learned how to predict earthquakes from space

October 31. Specialists Research and Education Center for Remote Sensing of the Earth from space have studied the variations of geophysical fields in earthquake-prone regions, according to the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation with reference to the press service of the Scientific Center of Aerospace Monitoring ("Aerospace"). The project was implemented under the auspices of the Centre within the framework of the Federal Target Program "Research and scientific-pedagogical personnel of innovative Russia", says the press release of the Ministry.

The report notes that in the history of mankind the most significant damage is being done by earthquakes, which

Forecasters predict Estonia frosty June

June 3, 2013. Natural anomalies detected not only in Siberia, where after the heat unexpectedly snowed, but also in Europe. Estonian Institute of Hydrometeorology promises that the country can return frosts.

As reported by weather forecasters, June 7-9 in Estonia can register frosty nights: at the surface (2 m), the temperature drops to zero, and to the No. 2 degrees below zero. At the same time freezing may follow after the heat in the first days of the month. So, on June 4-5 in Tallinn temperature reaches 25-27 degrees Celsius, and these days will be for the country hottest this

Africa: Lake Chad expects the fate of the Aral Sea. Named the most Dying country on Earth

Scientists are sounding the alarm: for 50 years the area of Lake Chad, one of the largest vodosmov Africa, the waters of which play a key role in the lives of over 30 million people in Cameroon, Nigeria, Niger and Chad, has shrunk by 90%. If the water levels continue to decline at the same rate, in 20 years the lake may dry up completely, which threatens to turn into an ecological and human disaster for the region.

As the Minister of Environment and Fisheries of Chad Hassan therapy, "in 1963, the Lake Chad area is 25 thousand square
