While polymers contribute to the convenience of modern life, they also threaten the environment and life, particularly in oceans, as plastic waste. Polymers decompose very slowly. Through physical impact they reduce in size and degrade into fragments of oxidized polymers. The effect of maritime animals or birds picking up polymer fragments of all sizes is well recognized all over the world. Especially fish are victims of human waste, but also seabirds, such as fulmars which carry plastic waste in their...

Data from the Infrared Array Camera of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope reported in Astrophysical Journal Letters suggest that fragments of a shattered comet are the explanation of the dimming of the mysterious "double" star KIC 8462852 that seemed to defy the laws of physics.

Hapke and Shkuratov radiative transfer models were implemented to simultaneously estimate mineral abundances and particle size from VIS–NIR reflectance spectra of eucrite and olivine-bearing (harzburgitic) diogenite meteorites.

The experimental and numerical evaluation of pressure effects in the FTIR analysis of fire effluent gases has been examined, including the feasibility and limitations of pressure corrections.
