This is different than other technology, Dr. Cunjiang Yu, lead author and assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Houston, explained in a news release. Unlike previous camouflage systems which couldn’t automatically adapt, “our device sees color and matches it. It reads the environment using thermochromatic material.”
The prototype... [Read More]

Call for Papers: Workshop on "Dynamics Atmos-Ice-Ocean Interactions in High Latitudes" (Norway)


We announce the first circular for a workshop on the Dynamics of Atmosphere-Ice-Ocean Interactions in the High-Latitudes being organized in Rosendal, Norway (near Bergen) for 23-27 March, 2015

Goal: Summarize our fundamental understanding and description of small-scale processes in the coupled atmosphere-ocean-ice climate system at high latitudes in order to assess and reduce bias and uncertainties in weather prediction and climate models.

Session themes and invited speakers:
