Scientists are trying to understand the causes of the medieval cooling

January 31. A new study conducted by experts from the University of Colorado at Boulder (USA), claims that the mysterious cooling, marked on the planet centuries ago, was caused by a series of powerful volcanic eruptions that triggered the chain of a number of climatic fluctuations, in particular a marked expansion of the polar ice caps. In the scientific literature cooling in the Middle Ages, often referred to by experts as the Little Ice Age.

Climate scientists studied chemical deposits in the Arctic Circle, analyzed a large amount of soil sediments and came to the conclusion that the

September 4. Paleontologists have found that global warming has a positive effect on species diversity. Article (at the time of this writing, it has not been posted on the Internet) appeared in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and its summary leads Nature News.

In the study, researchers analyzed data on the diversity of the biosphere over the past 540 million years. As a result, it was found that the temperature peaks coincide with an increase in biodiversity. The researchers say that their results apply to the present

Russian scientists have found a cheap way to search for oil

A team of scientists of the Geological Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences has opened a fundamentally new way of predicting oil and other minerals, called thermotomography. The essence of it is to build three-dimensional models of temperature distribution and heat flux, which allows you to get maps, sections geothermal field at any depth and thus determine the level at which there are conditions for the formation of hydrocarbon molecules. This method allows a first approach to predict the depth and location of placement of deposits and savings on finding hundreds of millions of rubles.

The computer can see our dream?

09.04.2013

 

In the new study, researchers found that a computer can have a dream man, based on his brain activity. The scientists measured the activity of the human brain during sleep and were able to track the specific scheme for objects — for example, keys or bed. "We know almost nothing about dreams, — said one of the researchers, a neuroscientist Masako Tamaki. — Using this method, we may be able to learn more about the nature of sleep. " In

A mysterious pyramid found at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee. Mysterious giant pyramid found at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. Archaeologists are not yet able to determine when it was built, its purpose is not clear. The conical structure made of "loutish basalt cobbles and boulders", weighs about 60 tons, which exceeds the displacement of most modern ships. Pyramid height — about 10 m and the diameter — 69 m, which is twice the
