Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: UV poop test: Samples water

Contamination of water with fecal matter is a serious risk, especially in the developing world, for several diseases that are often lethal. Now, UV technology capable of sampling water systems to find indicators of fecal matter at levels thousandths or even millionths of times lower than those detected by conventional methods has been developed by a team of researchers at Texas A&M University.

Oceanic methane: Greenhouse leakage

David Bradley

Sep 1, 2014

thumbnail image: Oceanic methane Greenhouse leakage

Natural methane leakage from the seafloor is far more widespread on the US Atlantic margin than geological scientists previously thought. Data from multibeam water-column backscatter experiments covering a 94000 square kilometre area reveal approximately 570 gas plumes at depths between 50 and 1700 metres. At these depths methane clathrates, in which this potent greenhouse gas is usually kept trapped under pressure, are unstable potentially allowing huge volumes to enter atmosphere.

In this review, some of the most commonly used fluorescent and nonfluorescent staining techniques that identify apoptotic changes in cell, DNA and the nucleus are discussed.

Reflection spectroscopy can be used to detect mercury contamination of water down to a concentration of 200 parts per billion, according to Australian researchers working with colleagues in Spain. Their low cost, portable system will facilitate point of analysis testing.

Seeing round corners

Steve Down

Aug 31, 2014

Objects hidden behind opaque screens or around corners can be visualised using the well-established technique of speckle interferometry combined with an angular memory effect, say French scientists, using a conventional digital camera or a camera phone.
