Warming makes the Alps region in disaster-

The inhabitants of the Alps should prepare for major changes. Global warming, according to Austrian scientists trigger more landslides, debris flows and accumulation of thick layer of sediment along rivers and valleys.

Mountain ecosystems are particularly dynamic. Any change in one of its components may cause unpredictable and even dangerous consequences. For example, in the Alps, global warming has led to a variety of disasters. A team of scientists led by Dr. Margaret Keyler (Margreth Keiler) of the University of Vienna assessed the current state of the mountain and made predictions for the future. For a start, researchers have

Australians have witnessed a rare snow storm

Australians have witnessed a rare snow storm Weather and Climate

Abnormally cold weather, come to the south of Australia, brought to the country the first in the last hundred years, the October snowfall. Such events do not remember even older Australians. White veil taker has hidden land at Mount Lofty and southern Flinders chain, in the east and north of Adelaide, South Australia. More low-lying areas of the snow never came, there was observed a drop in temperature to +4,4 ° C and rain.

All residents of the South Australian were in shock of this happening, and readily

Record heat in the Arctic!

September 11, 2013. We already wrote about the climatic vagaries of autumn 2013, and indeed, it took only ten days of September, and in the bank of the phenomena of the season and has already proved lilacs blooming in Tver, and snowfall in the mountains of Sochi …

The apotheosis anomaliynosti processes in the atmosphere temperature record was set yesterday in Murmansk! On the periphery of the Scandinavian anticyclone to the Kola Peninsula rushed very warm air from Central Europe, and in the afternoon, the thermometer in the capital of the Russian Arctic have risen to +19.5 °. By the

The water in the North Atlantic has warmed record

The water temperature in the North Atlantic, which is associated with the state of the Arctic Ocean, in the early 21st century has reached a record high values for the last two thousand years.

As RIA Novosti reports, citing an article published in the journal Science, the water of the North Atlantic Ocean has a decisive impact on the entire Arctic basin, in particular the area of drifting ice. Until then, scientists had data on water temperatures in the Strait in the last 150 years.

A team of researchers led by Robert Shpilhagena from the Institute of Marine Research Leibniz

At the Institute of Nuclear Physics create the setting for fusion energy

Why are the prospects of fusion energy only when the world will be the first "reactors of the future" and how scientists from Novosibirsk to approximate the onset of the day?

Today, the world is a lot of research to answer the question of where humanity will get energy after the end of oil and gas. Coal-fired thermal power station polluting the atmosphere and affect the ecology, plant and so are already in almost all major rivers, nuclear disaster population considers dangerous, and solar and wind energy can not provide commercial volumes. Therefore, the only promising option

It works fine, even a little better than expected

Space Radio Telescope Interferometer "Spektr-R" ("Radioastron"), put into high-elliptical orbit on July 18, spent the first test observations of the space object. This object has become one of the most powerful sources of galactic radio — the remnants of supernova Cassiopeia A (Cas A). On board the observatory are four highly sensitive radiometer for astronomical observations in the radio waves from 92 cm to 1 cm

First space test of the four radiometers have confirmed their reliable operation in normal mode. Measured the total system noise temperature of the radio telescope, showing the proximity of the

In LPI produced the first single crystals of the new high-temperature superconductors based on iron

In the Physics Institute. Lebedev (FIAN) synthesized a new crystal high temperature superconductor (HTS) based on iron. At the end of last year was completed laboratory equipment for solid phase synthesis and the growth of crystals of high-temperature superconductors. The result of the first experiment showed the fundamental possibility of such crystals in the LPI.

In Belgorod patented air conditioner, used to work

alternative energy

A team of scientists from Belgorod and Belgorod State University Institute of Alternative Energy presented its new development. Experts have developed air conditioner that uses alternative to the functioning and secondary sources of energy.

One of the authors of this innovative design Vladimir Nosatov (director of energy services and energy audit of the institution of alternative energy), stated that the air conditioner’s temperature should be as low as 40-70 degrees.

This allows you to draw heat away from the heat exchangers, waste heat or solar collectors, which, in essence, are devices that lower

Russian physicists have synthesized a new generation of superconductors

Scientists from the Lebedev Physical Institute RAS (LPI) was synthesized for the first time in Russia a new type high-temperature superconducting materials based on iron, nickel and cobalt, which has great potential in engineering, said "LPI-Inform".   Until recently, the main class of high-temperature superconductors are cuprates — copper-based compounds. In 1993, Eugene Antipov Sergey Putilin from MSU got a mercury-based cuprate, in experiments which set a record temperature The superconducting transition state — 135 Kelvin (109 degrees below zero Celsius). However in 2008 opened a new class high temperature superconductors — iron based materials and pnictide (nitrogen,
