Lights, camera, action: Researchers develop method to measure crystalline equation of state

April 13, 2016 -  
Beginning in the 19th century, scientists developed equations of state (EoS) to describe how material properties such as volume or internal energy are affected by intensive pressure or temperature. Experiments are conducted to determine the volume a sample occupies at various pressure-temperature...

Climate models underestimate global warming by exaggerating cloud 'brightening'

April 7, 2016 -  
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Yale University have found that climate models are aggressively making clouds “brighter” as the planet warms. This may be causing models to underestimate how much global warming will occur due to increasing carbon dioxide. The research...
