Clouds’ greenhouse effect instrumental in origin of tropical storms

The tropical storm season in the Atlantic Ocean is already well into the Greek alphabet for naming. Better tropical storm track forecasting has allowed timely preparations and evacuations. However, predicting the formation and intensification of storms remains challenging, according to an international team of researchers studying the origins of tropical cyclones. “Critical questions around the […]

Greenhouse effect of clouds instrumental in origin of tropical storms

Better storm track prediction over the past few decades has allowed for timely preparation and evacuations but understanding how these storms form and intensify remains a challenge for scientists. A Florida State University researcher was part of an international team studying the origin of tropical cyclones that found infrared radiative feedback from clouds accelerates storm development. Deep clouds that are […]

Higher Temperature Slows Osteoporosis, an Effect Mediated by Polyamine Produced by Gut Microbes

Osteoporosis is the name given to the characteristic age-related loss of bone mass and strength. The extracellular matrix of bone tissue is constantly remodeled, created by osteoblasts and broken down by osteoclasts. The proximate cause of osteoporosis is a tilt in the balance of these processes, favoring osteoclast activity and thus slow loss of bone […]

Concussion discovery reveals dire, unknown effect of even mild brain injuries

Even mild concussions cause severe and long-lasting impairments in the brain’s ability to clean itself of toxins, and this may seed it for Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other neurodegenerative problems, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine reveals. The discovery offers important insights into traumatic brain injury, a poorly understood condition that has become […]
