The permafrost in Antarctica is melting at an accelerating rate

29.07.2013

Intriguing news again came from Antarctica — the first time scientists have found that the permafrost in Antarctica is melting at an accelerating rate, and this is not due to global warming, according to RIA-Novosti reported with reference to the journal Scientific Reports.

Scientists led by Joseph Levy (Joseph Levy) from the University of Texas at Austin (USA) gathered data on the melting of underground ice in Garwood Valley, located in the Dry Valleys of McMurdo in Victoria Land, Antarctica.

Scientists have found that the rate of melting permafrost rose from 2001 to

After the earthquake in March 2011 changed the status of water in the Japan Trench

May 30, 2013. A survey conducted by Japanese scientists found that the water in the Japan Trench was troubled by the earthquake that struck northeastern Japan in March 2011, according to NHK.

The researchers from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology have used a special camera to explore the deep-water areas near the epicenter of the quake.

They found that even 4 months after the earthquake, sediments still circling above the bottom is about 110 kilometers south-east of the focal zone.

Usually the seabed at a depth of 7,000 meters calmer with weak currents. The researchers attribute the

Studies shed new light on the destructive properties of ultraviolet rays

Studies shed new light on the destructive properties of ultraviolet rays Scientists prove

The scientists found that ultraviolet rays have a more devastating effect than once thought.

The sun emits UVA (short wave) and UVB (long-wave) radiation. Previously it was believed that these rays do not destroy the deep layers of the skin. New research Kings Kolleldzh in London found that UVA rays are much more carcinogenic, which underlines the need to avoid sunlight and solarium.

According to Professor Anthony Young damage increase due to the fact that, penetrating into the epidermis, it dissipates in the opposite direction. "Basal layer,

Danish scientists after experiments with pythons found that reptiles can detect vibrations in the air, despite the lack of ears. For a long time it was believed that snakes are deaf, because they have no ears. Scientists have dispelled this misconception.

Reptiles have almost complete analog of our inner ear with his usual ear bone and hair cells, but without the ear drum. Instead, their inner ear is connected to the jawbone. Jaw perceives vibrations from the ground and transfers it the inner ear — as a snake and

Scientists have found that smokers give birth to criminals

U.S. researchers from Harvard found that women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to give birth to babies with criminal tendencies, reports The Telegraph.

The researchers analyzed data on children born in the years 1959-1966, as well as their mothers. It was found that children of women smokers are three times more prevalent antisocial behavior.

"We can not make accurate conclusions. Although all quite logical: after all, cigarettes contain many toxic substances that affect fetal development. In particular, these toxins can also affect the nervous system of the unborn child. Now we can say only one thing: women
