GPS Tracks Leatherback Turtle Hotspots To Prevent Fishing Deaths
2014-01-09 07:50:15

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the most endangered species in the world, the Pacific Ocean's leatherback sea turtle population has declined by more than 90 percent since 1980. One of the greatest causes of this species' death is industrial longline fishing, which sets thousands of hooks in the ocean to catch fish, but sometimes catch turtles as well. Research teams use modern GPS technology to predict where fisheries and turtles will interact in order...

A new study conducted by Drexel University environmental sociologist Robert J. Brulle, PhD, exposes the organizational underpinnings and funding behind the powerful climate change countermovement. This study marks the first peer-reviewed, comprehensive analysis ever conducted of the sources of funding that maintain the denial effort. Through an analysis of the financial structure of the organizations that constitute the core of the countermovement and their sources of monetary support,...

New Material For Solar Panels Could Make Them Cheaper And More Efficient
2013-12-12 08:01:27

Argonne National Laboratory A unique solar panel design made with a new ceramic material points the way to potentially providing sustainable power cheaper, more efficiently, and requiring less manufacturing time. It also reaches a four-decade-old goal of discovering a bulk photovoltaic material that can harness energy from visible and infrared light, not just ultraviolet light. Scaling up this new design from its tablet-size prototype to a full-size solar panel would be a large step...

Researchers Demonstrate New Paradigm For Solar Cell Construction
2013-11-12 13:43:21

University of Pennsylvania For solar panels, wringing every drop of energy from as many photons as possible is imperative. This goal has sent chemistry, materials science and electronic engineering researchers on a quest to boost the energy-absorption efficiency of photovoltaic devices, but existing techniques are now running up against limits set by the laws of physics. Now, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University have experimentally demonstrated a new...

New Energy Storage Capabilities Found Between Layers Of 2-D Materials
2013-09-27 07:07:56

Drexel University Drexel University researchers are continuing to expand the capabilities and functionalities of a family of two-dimensional materials they discovered that are as thin as a single atom, but have the potential to store massive amounts of energy. Their latest achievement has pushed the materials storage capacities to new levels while also allowing for their use in flexible devices. About three years ago, Dr. Michel W. Barsoum and Dr. Yury Gogotsi, professors in Drexel's...
