Climate change severely damaging world’s oceans, major new report warns

Science
Climate change is devastating our seas and frozen regions as never before, a major new United Nations report warns.According to a UN panel of scientists, waters are rising, the ice is melting, and species are moving habitat due to human activities.And the loss of permanently frozen lands threatens to unleash even more carbon, hastening the decline.There is some guarded hope that the worst impacts can be avoided, with deep and immediate cuts to carbon emissions.This is the third in a series of special reports that have been produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) over the past 12 months.

World’s biggest amphibian ‘discovered’ in museum

Science
A newly-identified amphibian is possibly the largest on the planet, according to DNA from museum specimens.Reaching nearly two metres in length, the South China giant salamander is critically endangered in the wild.Scientists say renewed conservation efforts are needed if the animal is to be saved from extinction.Harvesting for the luxury food trade has led to a collapse in numbers across China.Previously considered a single species, analysis of specimens, living and dead, suggests there are in fact three species found in different parts of China.The South China salamander is the largest of the three, which researchers suspect it is the largest amphibian alive today.Prof Samuel Turvey of ZSL (Zoological Society of London) said th...
Swedish researchers unveil world’s smallest accelerometer

Swedish researchers unveil world’s smallest accelerometer

Science
Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Engineers in Sweden have developed the world's smallest accelerometer using graphene. The accelerometer could be used to create new wearable technologies for use in medicine, fitness and gaming. "Based on the surveys and comparisons we have made, we can say that this is the smallest reported electromechanical accelerometer in the world," Xuge Fan, a researcher at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, said in a news release. "We can scale down components because of the material's atomic-scale thickness, and it has great electrical and mechanical properties," Fan said. The researchers described the new nano-electromechanical system, or NEM, this week in the journal Nature Electronics. To develop the tiny actuator, scientists needed to create an ultra-small, sensitive tran...
Scientists perform world’s smallest MRI on single atoms

Scientists perform world’s smallest MRI on single atoms

Science
July 1 (UPI) -- Scientists have successfully measured the spins of a single atom, executing the world's smallest MRI. Magnetic resonance imaging measures the density of atomic spins, the electromagnetic properties of electrons and protons, inside the human body. Most MRI scans measure millions of spins. For the latest feat, detailed Monday in the journal Nature Physics, scientists detected the spins of individual atoms. Researchers combined MRI technology with a scanning tunneling microscope to image a single atom. For the experiment, scientists used a tiny sample of iron and titanium. Using the atomically sharp metal tip of the microscope, scientists successfully isolated a collection of atoms. Researchers were able to create a three-dimensional map of the atoms' magnetic fields.
