  • Credit: Song_about_summer/Shutterstock Flight shaming: how to spread the campaign that made Swedes give up flying for good 2020-07-28 Europe’s major airlines are likely to see their turnover drop by 50% in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, while European airports expect to welcome 700 million fewer passengers. It’s a brutal shock to a global industry, writes Avit K Bhowmik in a new article in The Conversation.

  • 3D-3D topotactic transformations can be triggered by deep dehydration, providing a novel approach for generation of new zeolite structures. New structural transformation phenomenon can break the way in searching for novel materials 2020-07-28 All over the world science is looking for new materials to tackle environmental problems. Scientists have now found a new way of generating novel zeolites, which are widely used for producing basic chemicals and recently drawn interests in CO2 capture. The route is based on the discovery of a structural transformation phenomenon introduced by deep dehydration – allowing brand new materials to be obtained from existing ones.
  • Spatial heterogeneity in soils contributes to soil organic carbon persistence.

  • Clouds over the Indian ocean, observed with the instrument MODIS at the NASA satellite Aqua. Photo: NASA Pristine environments offer a window to our cloudy past 2020-07-28 A new study uses satellite data over the Southern Hemisphere to understand global cloud composition during the industrial revolution. This research tackles one of the largest uncertainties in today’s climate models — the long-term effect of tiny atmospheric particles on climate change.
  • Nordic Seas overturning circulation pathways New article in Nature Communications 2020-08-03 Discovery of an unrecognized pathway carrying overflow waters toward the Faroe Bank Channel
  • Thawing permaforst.

Plant roots in soil stimulate microbial decomposition, a mechanism called priming effect.
  • Leiden Ranking 2020 2020-07-14 In the beginning of July CWTS Leiden University presented the Leiden Ranking 2020. The ranking measures the scientific performance of more than 1100 major universities worldwide.
