100-year floods will happen every one to 30 years, predicts a new map

Quantifying the effects of sea-level rise (SLR) and Tropical Cyclone climatology change (under RCP 8.5) on late 21st-century flood hazards at the county level along the US Atlantic and Gulf Coasts.
Titanic Twosome: A Princeton-led team of astrophysicists has spotted a pair of supermassive black holes, roughly 2.5 billion light-years away, that are on a collision course (inset). The duo can be used to estimate how many detectable supermassive black hole mergers are in the present-day universe and to predict when the historic first detection of the background “hum” of gravitational waves will be made.

Scientists detected two supermassive black holes on collision course with each other

Around 2.5 billion light-years away from Earth, Princeton scientists detected two supermassive black holes on a collision course. Each black hole's mass is more than...
In a finding with implications for topics including climate models and drug production, computational research from Princeton University has described an additional step in the precipitation of salt crystals. Credit: Image by the researchers

Salt takes a quick step before falling out of water

When a drop of sea spray lands on a rock and heats under the midday sun, the salt crystallizes and falls out of the...

Wonderful!! 83 supermassive black holes found in the early universe

Supermassive black holes, found at the centers of galaxies, can be millions or even billions of times more massive than the sun. While they...

Human activities are dissolving the seafloor

The seafloor has constantly assumed a pivotal job in controlling the level of ocean acidification. At the point when a burst of acidic water...

Earth’s oceans have absorbed 60 percent more heat per year than previously thought

Climate sensitivity is utilized to assess passable emissions for mitigation methodologies. Most atmosphere researchers have concurred in the previous decade that if worldwide normal...
Research conducted at Princeton University found less nitrogen pollution in the open ocean off the East Coast of the United States than previously estimated. The researchers evaluated nitrogen levels in the calcium carbonate skeleton of this living brain coral (Diploria labyrinthiformis). Photo courtesy of the researchers

130-year-old brain coral reveals encouraging news for open ocean

A 130-year-old brain coral has given the answer, in any event for the North Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast of the United States....
Europe's renewable energy directive is poised to harm the global forests

Europe’s renewable energy directive is poised to harm the global forests

European authorities on definite dialect for a renewable energy source mandate prior this mid-year that will twofold Europe's utilization of sustainable power source by...
Princeton researchers have found ways to bond molecules “like Legos,” theoretically allowing new medicines to be assembled faster and with more flexibility.

McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Chemistry; and graduate students Ian Perry and Patrick Sarver. Photo byC. Todd Reichart, Department of Chemistry

New way to bond molecules that could speed drug discovery

Scientists at the Princeton University in the David MacMillan’s lab have come up with a revolutionary new way to bond molecules that could fundamentally accelerate the...
