Space Station Research Exposing The Salty Truth Of Supercritical Water Transitions
2013-07-23 11:49:23

NASA There is a moment when everything changes. Something familiar crosses a boundary and suddenly behaves in new ways. Take water for example. In middle school science class, you probably learned about saturation points when adding salt to a liquid. Or you discovered the importance of phase changes when going from boiling to steam or from freezing to ice. That moment of change is now being studied at a new level in space. At sea level, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, and both...

Society for Experimental Biology Treating oil spills at sea with chemical dispersants is detrimental to European sea bass. A new study, to be presented at the Society for Experimental Biology meeting in Valencia on July 6, suggests that although chemical dispersants may reduce problems for surface animals, the increased contamination under the water reduces the ability for fish and other organisms to cope with subsequent environmental challenges. A team of researchers headed by Prof Guy...

Vase Tunicate, Ciona intestinalis
2014-01-12 00:00:00

The Vase Tunicate (Ciona intestinalis) is a species of sea squirt widely distributed in Northern European waters. It has also spread to other parts of the world, where it is considered invasive. It grows in dense aggregations on any floating or submerged substrate, especially on artificial structures like pilings, aquaculture gear, floats and boat hulls. It is found in the lower intertidal and subtidal zones. Sea squirts have been long recognized as being possibly the closest invertebrate...
