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...
Global warming will change the lengths of the four seasons, a new study suggests, potentially making six-month-long summers the norm by the year 2100. In contrast, winters could last less than two months a year, while spring and autumn similarly...
The Vulture is pleistocenic volcano localized in the north of Basilicata and it is the highest mountain of the southeastern sector of the Apennines with its 1327 m a.s.l., and also the easternmost volcanic centre of the whole Italian...
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...
Floods, heavy rainfall and inundation are increasingly threatening the integrity and survival of Europe's cultural heritage. Thanks to the collaboration between the Institute of Atmospheric and Climate Sciences of the National Research Council (CNR-Isac) in Bologna, the Institute of...
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 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...
The Mt. Etna is the biggest European volcano and one of the most active volcanos of the world; localized in eastern Sicily, it elevates until 3320 m a.s.l. (in 2019) but its altitude and morphology of the top of...
If managed differently, the EU’s forests could absorb twice as much CO2 every year, according to new research by Naturwald Akademie. The study, commissioned by Greenpeace Germany, found that if logging in Europe’s forests was reduced by a...
Animals find it increasingly difficult to mate and reproduce, often due to man and his habits. Among these causes of disturbance to animal love, climate change comes first, but also deforestation, noise, light and plastic pollution, poaching play decisive...
