research outlines the story of soot
2014-07-02 03:36:39

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab) and the University of Hawaii have uncovered the first step in the process that transforms gas-phase molecules into solid particles like soot and other carbon-based compounds. The finding could help combustion chemists make more-efficient, less-polluting fuels and help materials scientists fine-tune their carbon nanotubes and graphene sheets for faster, smaller...

Destiny One software platform will streamline operations across seven campuses TORONTO, June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- University of Hawai'i Community Colleges (UHCC) will be centralizing non-credit programing by implementing Destiny One across its seven campuses statewide. Destiny One, the enterprise software system by Destiny Solutions, provides a single platform to manage a diverse set of programs across numerous campuses. By standardizing operations with a single platform, UHCC...

Shark's Eye View Of The Ocean
2014-03-01 05:42:24

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from the University of Hawaii and the University of Tokyo are gaining novel insights into how one of the most feared and least understood ocean predators swims, eats and lives — all courtesy of instruments strapped onto and ingested by sharks. The sharks were outfitted with sophisticated sensors and video recorders to measure and see where they are going, how they are getting there, and what they do once they reach...

[ Watch the Video: Saving the Kamehameha Butterfly ] University of Hawaii at Manoa The Kamehameha butterfly is the state insect of Hawaii and one of two butterflies native to the 50th state. It’s a little smaller than a monarch butterfly. “They’re basically an orange, a kind of deep orange, sometimes almost a rosy, a pinkish hue and they have these white spots on them,” said Will Haines, a University of Hawaii at Manoa researcher from the Department of Plant and Environmental...

Marine Tubeworms Need A Push To Transition From Larvae State
2014-01-10 10:03:52

University of Hawaii at Manoa Intriguing bacterium-animal interaction may have implications for boat owners and the mariculture industry, UH Manoa researchers say A common problem at Pearl Harbor, biofouling affects harbors around the world. It's the process by which barnacles, muscles, oysters, and tubeworms accumulate on the bottom of boats and other surfaces. Now researchers at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa's Kewalo Marine Laboratory have discovered a biological trigger behind...

Scientists Find Rapid Warming Threatens Rich Seafloor Communities
2013-12-04 10:09:25

University of Hawaii at Manoa Deep inside the dramatic subpolar fjords of Antarctica, researchers from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa have discovered an unexpected abundance and diversity at the seafloor. During a recent expedition, UH scientists for the first time studied the seafloor communities of glacier dominated fjords along the west Antarctic Peninsula, a region undergoing very rapid climate warming. The scientists expected to find impoverished seafloor communities highly...

Two Y Genes Can Replace Entire Y Chromosome For Assisted Reproduction In Mice
2013-11-21 15:33:20

University of Hawaii at Manoa The Y chromosome is a symbol of maleness, present only in males and encoding genes important for male reproduction. But live mouse offspring can be generated with assisted reproduction using germ cells from males with the Y chromosome contribution limited to only two genes: the testis determinant factor Sry and the spermatogonial proliferation factor Eif2s3y. "Does this mean that the Y chromosome (or most of it) is no longer needed? Yes, given our current...

Jellyfish Numbers Shifting Climate Patterns
2013-10-24 15:47:31

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Every month, 8 to 12 days after each full moon, Waikiki Beach is invaded by large numbers of box jellyfish. After witnessing the phenomenon countless times, Honolulu lifeguard Landy Blair, in conjunction with researchers at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, started tracking the numbers of jellyfish that invade the beach with each cycle. Over 170 full moons after they began, the team’s published findings in the latest issue of PLOS...

Global Warming To Impact The Tropics Sooner Than You Think
2013-10-10 04:21:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Unless greenhouse gas emissions are stabilized, the average location on Earth will experience a radically different climate by the year 2047, experts from the University of Hawaii, Manoa claim in research published in Thursday’s edition of the journal Nature. In the study, lead author Camilo Mora and colleagues from the university’s Department of Geography report that ecological and societal disruptions by modern global...

Study Shows Extrusive Volcanism Formed Hawaiian Islands
2013-10-07 09:17:25

University of Hawaii ‑ SOEST A recent study by researchers at the University of Hawaii – Manoa (UHM) School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and the University of Rhode Island (URI) changes the understanding of how the Hawaiian Islands formed. Scientists have determined that it is the eruptions of lava on the surface, extrusion, which grow Hawaiian volcanoes, rather than internal emplacement of magma, as was previously thought. Before this work, most scientists...

Mauna Kea Observatories -- Hawaii is Earth's connecting point to the rest of the Universe. The summit of Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawaii hosts the world's largest astronomical observatory, with telescopes operated by astronomers from eleven countries. The combined light-gathering power of the telescopes on Mauna Kea is fifteen times greater than that of the Palomar telescope in California -- for many years the world's largest -- and sixty times greater than that of the Hubble Space...
