Several studies in 2020 analysed the variation of tropospheric ozone (O3) as a function of the restriction measures put in place to contain the spread of VOCID-19. Most of these these studies have been conducted mainly in urban or...
The Amazon rainforest generates some of the rain that falls in its own area, as it takes water from the soil and transpires it into the surrounding air, thus sustaining itself. A study by the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences...
Contrary to what one might think, the life of trees is not only based on individualism and competition, but also on cooperation and solidarity, as the 20th century French writer and academic Henry Bordeaux also stated with his famous...
The calabro-lucanian boundary area geologically represents a key zone for understanding the orogenetic processes in this Apenninic sector and, at a bigger scale, the Mediterranean geodynamic processes. The Pollino Massif is a National Park from 1993, characterised by 192.565...
Quantum mechanics has remained an enigma for physicists and philosophers worldwide for more than a century. Quantum teleportation or the famous entanglement, described by Einstein as 'uncanny action at a distance', are among the anti-intuitive effects predicted by this...
It is called ENEA-RegESM (Regional Earth System Model) and is able to simulate the atmosphere-ocean dynamics in relation to the physical and biological processes occurring on the Earth's surface, such as heat fluxes, CO2 absorption by the Earth's ecosystems...
A high-tech laboratory for the study of algae, bryozoans, molluscs and corals, organisms that are still 'little considered' but are extremely important for climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, is being set up in the waters of Santa Teresa...
A study, published in the international journal Nature Plants, by young researchers from the Water Research Institute of the National Research Council in Verbania (CNR-Irsa), the University of Turin, the Federico II University in Naples, the Museum of Natural...
Innovative magnetic nanoparticles of iron oxide, coated with a biocompatible polymeric coating, capable of removing heavy metal ions from water: the development of materials science plays a crucial role in sustainable development and ecological transition.Thanks to the design and...
Thanks to new data made available by the latest satellite campaigns, it is now possible to observe the changes in snow and vegetation cover associated with climate change and how they have modified the amount of solar radiation reflected...
