New Floodplain Zoning Developed that Processes Topographic Datasets in Minutes

Enrique Vivoni, a hydrologist from the School of Earth and Space Exploration and ASU professor has come up with a first exhaustive high-resolution map of Earth’s floodplain. A team of scientists has also accompanied them in carrying out this study. Floodplains play a crucial role in economic activities, population centers, and transportation; therefore, it is essential to identify their extents. This new Earth’s floodplains one can categorize the human footprint

Non-Timber Forest Products can Alleviate Poverty in Rural Areas

Forests are treasure troves of natural resources. Besides timber, tribes also harvest non-timber forest products like nuts, honey, fungi, medicinal plants, barks, and flowers. These products, known for their wide range of applications, can be a promising source of income. Products such as fruits, honey, and nuts are always in demand. Also, many forest plants and flowers possess medicinal values, and are in great demand from Ayurvedic medicine manufacturers. Further,

Now Secure the IoT devices with Open Source Software

Nowadays people are more fascinated toward smart devices that can track their habits and interact with them through an app. For this reason, internet of things (IoT) devices is facing more risks, as industries launch them unprepared. Moreover, every now and then they see new breaches in IoT products. However, since this technology is in trend, it looks like IoT is the future. Therefore, industries need to identify the problems

U.S. Cloud Giants benefiting from Europe's Cloud Market

According to a projection by research firm, for the next three years, the Europe cloud market could rise by sizeable share annually. The revenues are rising with more promising pace in Europe than other regions such as the U.S., which has giant cloud solutions providers. According to experts, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for adoption in Europe has also expanded apace. Technology Adaptation is not a European Thing Saving

Focus on 3 Dimensions to improve Food Security after Natural Calamity

Aftereffects of natural disasters have considerable impact on food supplies, especially in Asian regions. To solve these problems, scientists at Colorado State University (CSU) have come up with an approach known as an ‘approximate dynamic programming’. Adopting this approach, the communities affected by natural calamities can improve the household food security. Studies by CSU also revealed the link between disruption in civil infrastructure and failures in food distribution. Natural calamities

Now Keeping Track of Blood Flow in Artery is Easier

It is often difficult to track the first sign of surgery success on veins. Before anyone could know, patient might undergo for a second surgery, with risks similar to the one in the first surgery. To overcome this risk, a team of Stanford scientists has invented a biodegradable wireless battery-free sensor. This device will help keep track of the flow of blood in an artery. Moreover, it will assist doctors

Advances in Phononic Devices pave way to Next-Gen Communication Tech

Have you ever thought about a microscopic component that can pave way to next-generation phononic devices, quantum computing, and sensors? Yes, scientists of this generation have helped conceptualize it. A research group from Caltech, U.S., developed a unique component for mobile devices known as phononic devices. This device can move 10 million times per second back and forth, and is able to vibrate extremely fast. Today, mobile devices use an

Machine learning paces up Atomistic Simulations of Ice and Water

A collaborative study between researchers at the University of Vienna and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne at the University of Göttingen has revealed answers for questions pertaining to water. The questions are related to water being densest at 4 degree Celsius, reason for ice to float, reason for heavy water having a different melting point than normal water, and so on. The findings for these questions have been published in
