Their consistency and predictability makes tidal energy attractive, not only as a source of electricity but, potentially, as a mechanism to provide reliability and resilience to regional or local power grids.
On World Oceans Day, an international team of marine scientists reports that the potential impact of marine renewable energy to marine life is likely small or undetectable, though some uncertainty remains.
Working with researchers with Tokyo Tech's World Research Hub Initiative in Japan and Canada, Xantheas will combine laboratory methods with computational explorations to study the biological functions of serotonin and nicotine.
For the first time, researchers have measured the force that draws tiny crystals together and visualized how they swivel and align. Called van der Waals forces, the attraction provides insights into how crystals self-assemble, an activity t
