Crowdsourcing And Algorithm Combine To Identify Individual Animals
2013-05-02 05:32:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A combination of crowdsourcing and new pattern recognition algorithms can identify individual animals within endangered populations, MIT researchers say. Conservationists typically place physical tags on individual animals in the wild to better follow them over time. But this method can be intrusive for many species, and difficult to achieve in larger populations. Scientists have also photographed animals in their natural...

Engineers at Draper Laboratory and MIT are working under contract with NASA to develop a statistical model that can identify areas where landslides are most likely to occur so that preparations can be made to better respond to a crisis. CAMBRIDGE, MA (PRWEB) April 26, 2013 Landslides, which can destroy entire communities and are on the rise due to climate change, are more often caused by rainfall accumulated over long periods than single storms. Engineers at Draper Laboratory and MIT are...

If you've ever stood on a hill during a rainstorm, you've probably witnessed landscape evolution, at least on a small scale: rivulets of water streaming down a slope, cutting deeper trenches in the earth when the rain turns heavier. It's a simple phenomenon that scientists have long believed applies to large-scale landforms as well – that is, rivers cut faster into mountains that receive heavier precipitation. It's thought that if rainfall patterns influence how rivers cut into rock,...

Researchers Developing Elecrohydrodynamic Thrust Technology
2013-04-03 19:12:11

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online MIT researchers writing in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society A say they found ionic wind thrusters may be a more efficient source of propulsion than conventional jet engines. Ionic wind, or electrohydrodynamic thrust, was first identified in the 1960s. The phenomenon takes place when a current passes between two electrodes, creating a wind in the air between. If enough voltage is applied, the wind produces a thrust...
