Cities of the future may be built with locally available volcanic ash
Cities of the future may be built with locally available volcanic ash
MIT engineers working with scientists in Kuwait have found that volcanic rocks, when pulverized into a fine ash, can be used as a sustainable additive in concrete structures. In a paper published online in the Journal of Cleaner Production , the researchers report that, by replacing a certain percentage of traditional cement with volcanic ash, they can reduce a concrete structure's "embodied energy," or the total energy that goes into making concrete.

How cities can fight climate change most effectively
What are the best ways for U.S. cities to combat climate change? A new study co-authored by an MIT professor indicates it will be easier for cities to reduce emissions coming from residential energy use rather than from local transportation - and this reduction will happen mostly thanks to better building practices, not greater housing density.

Strength of global stratospheric circulation measured for first time
Strength of global stratospheric circulation measured for first time
When commercial airplanes break through the clouds to reach cruising altitude, they have typically arrived in the stratosphere, the second layer of Earth's atmosphere. The air up there is dry and clear, and much calmer than the turbulent atmosphere we experience on the ground. And yet, for all its seeming tranquility, the stratosphere can be a powerful conveyor belt, pulling air up from the Earth's equatorial region and pushing it back down toward the poles in a continuously circulating pattern.
