How Fiber-Optic Sensing and New Materials Could Reduce the Cost of Floating Offshore Wind
Yuxin Wu (Courtesy of Yuxin Wu) In shallow waters, offshore wind turbines are fixed to the ocean floor. However, in deep water areas where winds are typically stronger and have the capacity to reap more than double the energy , floating offshore wind turbines must be moored to the seabed where the ocean is too deep for fixed structures.

Climate-stressed trees get a boost from new microbial partnerships
Climate change is subjecting plants to rapid shifts in temperature and precipitation, pushing them into new ranges and stressing them in old ones. Trees may have an easier time adapting in both cases by making new microbial friends underground, according to new research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The search for habitable planets expands
A University of Michigan astronomer and his team are suggesting a new way to expand the search for habitable planets that takes into account a zone not previously considered: the space between the star and what's called soot line in planet-forming disks. Worlds that form in this region-a disk of dust rotating around a central star from which planets may be built-could have surfaces rich in volatile carbon compounds quite different from Earth's.

As rising seas disrupt toxic sites, communities of color are at most risk
By the end of the century, coastal flooding threatens to inundate hundreds of toxic sites in California, including oil refineries, industrial facilities, sewage treatment plants and cleanup sites, putting communities like Richmond, Calif., at greater risk of hazardous exposure. As rising seas threaten to flood hundreds of toxic sites along the California coast, the risk of flood-related contamination will fall disproportionately on the state's most marginalized communities, finds a new study published today by researchers at UC Berkeley, UCLA and Climate Central.

Prolonged power outages, often caused by weather events, hit some parts of the U.S. harder than others
Alden Woods Joan Casey lived through frequent wildfire-season power outages when she lived in northern California. While waiting for the power to return, she wondered how the multi-day blackouts affected a community's health. -For me it was an inconvenience, but for some people it could be life-threatening,- said Casey , now an assistant professor in the University of Washington's Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences.
