The Influence of Tidal Forces Extends to the Arctic’s Deep Sea
The Moon’s gravitational pull creates the tides, but its influence extends hundreds of meters below the sea surface too, influencing sensitive methane seeps in the seabed.
Ali Asghar '20 looks to renewables
There are times in the Pakistani neighborhood where Ali Asghar ’20 grew up that the electricity still goes out for hours; sometimes, half the day. It is estimated that some 50 million people across the country don’t have access to the energy grid. If all goes according to plan, Asghar could be part...

“Rate of mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet will exceed Holocene values this century"
An interdisciplinary team of scientists used reconstructions of climate & former ice sheet extent to model the past, present, & future of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Future ice loss will be more extreme than any time in the past 12,000 years unless global carbon emissions are curbed.
