University of Montana A new paper co-written by four University of Montana researchers finds that humans have more than doubled tropical nitrogen inputs. Benjamin Sullivan, a researcher working with UM College of Forestry and Conservation Professor Cory Cleveland, led the team that looked at the nitrogen cycle in tropical rain forests. Sullivan and his colleagues used a new method to demonstrate that biological nitrogen fixation in tropical rain forests may be less than a quarter of...

University of Texas at Austin New method -- the first physics-based look at the net effect of nitrate removal in the Mississippi network -- shows the filtering system operating at max capacity A new method of measuring the interaction of surface water and groundwater along the length of the Mississippi River network adds fresh evidence that the network's natural ability to chemically filter out nitrates is being overwhelmed. The research by hydrogeologists at The University of Texas...

Researchers See Rare-earth-like Magnetic Properties In Iron
2014-04-30 14:11:06

Ames Laboratory Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory have observed magnetic properties typically associated with those observed in rare-earth elements in iron. These properties are observed in a new iron based compound that does not contain rare earth elements, when the iron atom is positioned between two nitrogen atoms. The discovery opens the possibility of using iron to provide both the magnetism and permanence in high-strength permanent magnets, like those used in...

Rhode Island Nitrogen Cycle Differs In Bay And Sound
2014-04-29 17:17:11

Brown University A new study reports that anammox, a key process in the nitrogen cycle, is barely present in Narragansett Bay even though it’s a major factor just a little farther out into Rhode Island Sound. Scientists traced that to differences between bay and sound sediments, but that raises new questions about what’s going on in the Bay to account for those. Rhode Island’s geography is famously small, but new measurements of the nitrogen cycle in its waterways suggest that...

Study May Resolve Controversy Over Nitrogen’s Ocean Exit Strategies
2014-04-14 12:19:53

By Catherine Zandonella, Princeton University A decades-long debate over how nitrogen is removed from the ocean may now be settled by new findings from researchers at Princeton University and their collaborators at the University of Washington. The debate centers on how nitrogen — one of the most important food sources for ocean life and a controller of atmospheric carbon dioxide — becomes converted to a form that can exit the ocean and return to the atmosphere where it is reused...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Over four decades ago, acid rain caused by industrial emissions was eradicating fish and dissolving stone monuments in the Eastern US. However, emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide, both of which cause acid rain, dropped significantly after the passing of the Clean Air Act of 1970. A new study from a team of French and American scientists has revealed that the rise and fall of these atmospheric contaminants has been...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
