Voyage to the base of the food chain

On the second leg of the journey around the Antarctic, the research vessel Akademik Treshnikov sets out from Tasmania to the frozen edge of Antarctica, before heading on eastwards to Chile. An oceanographer, whose knowledge of the Southern Ocean was previously limited to theory, blogs from on board. Read more

Tapping into underground urban heat islands

Cities are heat islands – not only above ground but below ground too, and therein lies the enormous potential to better harness this energy through geothermal heat exchangers. A group of researchers demonstrated this in a case study conducted in the city of Zurich. Read more

Tiny organisms with a massive impact

Although diatoms are incredibly small, they have a significant impact on the dispersal of nutrients and trace elements in global marine waters. This is the conclusion of a study recently published in the scientific journal “Nature Geoscience ”. Read more

Chronicle of a catastrophic landslide

Dramatic developments have been documented at the Aletsch glacier, where the ice has retreated at such a pace that an adjoining slope has also started to move rapidly. With the help of a unique dataset, researchers are able to demonstrate a direct connection between the ice loss of the Aletsch glacier and the slippage of the Moosfluh slope. Read more

Geothermal storage for our cities

Geothermal probes and heat pumps provide an effective alternative to oil heating, but they aren’t suitable for use in densely populated areas where probes in close proximity extract too much heat from the ground. However, using probes for heat storage as well could unlock their considerable potential. Read more
