Researchers from the universities of Wyoming (United States) and Granada (Spain) prove that a rise in temperature of just 0,5 ºC during the Medieval Climate Anomaly (1000 years ago) caused a rise in naturally-occurring forest fires frequency in the Rocky Mountains woods (USA), which made 83% of the trees burn. Their (...)
Scientists from the University of Granada participate in an international survey that has analysed the chemical composition of seabed sediments to obtain information about climate change The Mediterranean is an “exceptional natural lab” for paleoenvironmental research, since its nature as a semi-enclosed basin “makes it particularly sensitive to, and turns it into an amplifier of, the effects of global change”, the authors point out     An international team of scientists which included three University of Granada and the (...)
They are formations resembling vegetal structures, which are produced when certain solid salts (copper sulfate, cobalt chloride) are added to an aqueous solution of sodium silicate. This research has been published in PNAS and in it participate scientist from Brussels Free University and the University of Granada Andalusian Institute of Earth Sciences Recent research which has counted with the participation of the University of Granada Andalusian Institute of Earth Sciences has yielded new data on chemical gardens, mysterious (...)
Seabed sediments dating back to around 2,2-4,3 million years reveal that there was a generalized thaw, according to an article published in the journal Nature Geosciences This research, which counts with the participation of the Andalusian Institute of Earth Sciences, indicates that the emission of greenhouse gases has a higher impact upon thaw than changes in the earth’s orbit. An international research team led by the High Council for Scientific Research (CSIC in its Spanish acronym) and (...)
Researchers at the University of Granada participate in an international project which has revealed that during the early phase of the Holocene (10.000 – 6.000 years ago) the climate in the Iberian Peninsula was rather more humid than it currently is. Scientists have found evidence of atmospheric dust from the Sahara in the depths of the Rio Seco lake, 3.020 meters above sea level, accumulated over the last 11.000 (...)
Analysing palaeontological data helps characterize irregular paleoenvironmental cycles, lasting between less than 1 day and more than millions of years Francisco J. Rodríguez-Tovar, Professor of Stratigraphy and Paleontology at the University of Granada, is the first Spanish scientist to have an article published in the Annual Reviews of Earth and Planetary Sciences Research conducted at the University of Granada has shown that the cyclical phenomena that affect the environment, like climate change, in the atmosphere-ocean dynamic and, (...)
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 (...)
