Newly Discovered Virus Infects Bald Eagles Across America

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Researchers have discovered a previously unknown virus infecting nearly a third of America’s bald eagle population. Scientists at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, USGS and the Wisconsin DNR found the virus while searching for the cause of Wisconsin River Eagle Syndrome, an enigmatic disease endemic to bald eagles near the Lower Wisconsin River. The newly identified bald eagle hepacivirus, or BeHV, may contribute to the fatal disease, which causes eagles to stumble and have seizures.

Engineers solve 50-year-old puzzle in signal processing

Iowa State University

Engineers Alexander Stoytchev and Vladimir Sukhoy have solved a 50-year-old puzzle in signal processing. They've formulated the "inverse chirp z-transform," an algorithm related to one that's running on your cell phone right now. It took some computing power and some math expertise to do it.

Fossil fish gives new insights into the evolution

University of Vienna

An international research team led by Giuseppe Marramà from the Institute of Paleontology of the University of Vienna discovered a new and well-preserved fossil stingray with an exceptional anatomy, which greatly differs from living species. The find provides new insights into the evolution of these animals and sheds light on the recovery of marine ecosystems after the mass extinction occurred 66 million years ago.

Predicting a Hurricane’s Intensity Can Prove Difficult

Nova Southeastern University

Many scientists have said that hurricanes are more intense than ever before – Cat. 4 or 5 storms used to be outliers, but today, it seems they are becoming the norm. Why? That’s the question a research team that includes a scientist from Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography is working to answer – they are looking what contributes to the rapid intensification of storms.
