Air pollution in New York City linked to wildfires hundreds of miles away

European Geosciences Union (EGU)

A new study shows that air pollutants from the smoke of fires from as far as Canada and the southeastern U.S. traveled hundreds of miles and several days to reach Connecticut and New York City, where it caused significant increases in pollution concentrations.

Newswise: Most Rehabilitating Sea Turtles with Infectious Tumors Don’t Survive

Most Rehabilitating Sea Turtles with Infectious Tumors Don’t Survive

Florida Atlantic University

Fibropapillomatosis (FP) is the most significant infectious disease affecting sea turtle populations worldwide. FB leads to tumors on the turtles’ eyes, flippers and internal organs and is widespread in warmer climates like Florida. A large-scale study evaluated tumor score, removal and regrowth in rehabilitating green sea turtles with FP in the southeastern U.S. from 2009 to 2017, and found that 75 percent did not survive following admission into a rehabilitation facility, irrespective of whether or not tumor regrowth occurred after surgery.

Newswise: UND Aerospace and Petroleum Engineering teaming up to study whether aviation safety concepts can be applied to offshore drilling

UND Aerospace and Petroleum Engineering teaming up to study whether aviation safety concepts can be applied to offshore drilling

University of North Dakota

“Better safe than sorry” is an overused credo in life. But in the world of aviation and oil-and-gas exploration, as much as anywhere, it can be the fine line between life and death. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine recognizes this sobering reality and is betting that proven successes in one of those industries – aviation—can be applied to the other, specifically on offshore drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. And the Academies has turned to the University of North Dakota, which has expertise in both disciplines, for what could be a first-of-a-kind such study.
