The University of Granada has developed a new technique to instantly quantify light pollution levels or artificial night sky background brightness. Small and light, the instrument is easy to transport and can be used practically anywhere, without the need for large-scale installations like astronomical observatories. University of Granada researchers have patented a new portable means of measuring and quantifying the levels of light pollution in a city which is much more accurate and reliable than those (...)
Seasonal primary productivity of plankton communities appeared with the first ice This phenomenon, still active today, influences global food webs These findings, reported in the journal Science, are based on fossil records in sediment cores at different depths. The study was led by the Andalusian Institute of Earth Sciences, a Spanish National Research Council-University of Granada joint centre. The Antarctic continental ice cap came into existence during the Oligocene epoch, some 33.6 million years ago, according to data (...)
A team of scientists find in the Laguna de Rio Seco lagoon, at an altitude of 3,020 m., evidence of atmospheric pollution caused by lead and linked to metallurgical activities from 3,900 years ago (Early Bronze Age) Lead pollution increased gradually during the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age, coinciding with the development and expansion of metallurgy in southern Europe Atmospheric contamination due to heavy metals is currently a severe problem of global proportions, with important (...)
Researchers from the University of Granada and the Carlos III University of Madrid have developed a pioneer system, unique in the world, which is more efficient and accurate than any other currently-used method The system is able to distinguish between the flow of cars, LGVs, HGVs or motorbikes/scooters travelling along a certain road Researchers from the University of Granada and the Carlos III University of Madrid have patented a new method to measure the flow of motorized (...)
University of Granada researchers are working on the application of neural networks to develop a urban noise forecasting model, which would be very useful to people who is interested in buying a new house. This application yields a prediction of urban noise levels using a dataset (street type, road conditions, average speed of the vehicles passing by, road works, etc), with a reliability of 95%. University of Granada researchers have designed a new software solution to determine (...)
Vascular plants have moved 2.7 m upwards, which might lead to the extinction of high-mountain species. While species diversity in summits of temperate-boreal regions has increased, it has declined in Mediterranean regions. Such are the results obtained from a study published in Science, where University of Granada researchers participated. Researchers at the University of Granada Department of Botanic have participated in an international study that has confirmed that global warming is causing plants to migrate to higher altitudes. (...)
This research focused on the relationship between land and plant, and analysed the effect of afforestation projects on biodiversity at the landscape scale. This study will ensure successful implementation of the farmland afforestation program within EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (PAC) Researchers from the University of Granada have developed new farmland afforestation techniques based on the relationship between land and plant that enhance young plant survival and development in Mediterranean environments. Their work will ensure successful implementation (...)
The waste obtained from olive during the oil extraction process can be used to eliminate heavy metals from sewage or waste waters of productive activities. Olive pits, pomace and remains (from olive tree pruning) present an outstanding capacity to retain the lead present in this water, which confirms their capacity as biosorbents for their application in the depuration of effluents on an industrial scale.This is one of the main conclusions of the doctoral thesis "Characterization (...)
In the context of the climatic change of the planet, those research works that throw light on global warming are of great interest. That is the case of the studies on atmospheric aerosol, a suspension of solid or liquid particles on a gaseous environment that can contribute to the warming or cooling of the atmosphere.Juan Luis Guerrero Rascado developed his doctoral thesis “Lidar Technique for atmospheric characterization by elastic and Raman dispersion” precisely in this (...)
Lately, every drought, flood or hurricane which happens in the planet is connected with climatic change, and therefore the interest of society and scientists is getting to know this phenomenon better.Climatic change is connected at present with the phenomenon of global warming. This is characterized by the increase of carbon dioxide (CO2 gas), which produces the reduction of heat emission to the space and provokes a higher global warming.Although gases in the atmosphere tell us (...)
