Researchers reporting in ACS’ Environmental Science & Technology have conducted mobile measurements of methane and its sources throughout Paris. Their findings suggest that the natural gas distribution network, the sewage system and furnaces of buildings are ideal targets for methane reduction efforts.
Researchers reporting in ACS’ Environmental Science & Technology Letters have conducted an extensive airborne campaign with imaging spectrometers and identified large methane sources across the Permian Basin area.
Why are “ghost forests” filled with dead trees expanding along the mid-Atlantic and southern New England coast? Higher groundwater levels linked to sea-level rise and increased flooding from storm surges and very high tides are likely the most important factors, according to a Rutgers study on the impacts of climate change that suggests how to enhance land-use planning.

Singapore Spacer, a tool developed jointly by a team from NUS, SMU, Aviation Virtual and ESRI, enables administrators to identify places on campus where people concentrations are high, so that policy decisions can be taken to reduce the likelihood of COVID-19 transmission.
A method of predicting the coronavirus spread – pioneered and developed by Weizmann Institute scientists – may enable authorities to focus efforts on areas where an outbreak is anticipated and relieve measures taken in others. Several countries, including the U.S., are adopting the new method
Recent advances in unmanned‐aerial‐vehicle‐ (UAV‐) based remote sensing utilizing lightweight multispectral and thermal infrared sensors allow for rapid wide‐area landmine contamination detection and mapping surveys. We present results of a study focused on developing and testing an automated technique of…
