Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: 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.

Speciation Analysis of Manganese Dissolution in
Li-Ion Batteries

Manganese-based LIBs are environmentally friendly, have a good safety record, and can be produced at a lower cost than other metal-based LIBs; however, they have a shorter lifetime. One reported cause of lifetime loss is the dissolution of manganese from the cathode into the electrolyte during cycling. This presentation will discuss the analysis of cycled anode material and the separation of different degradation products.

Aligning two spacecraft to focus on a single astronomical target creates a single or "virtual" telescope and paves the way for extreme ultraviolet imaging of the Sun and X-ray imaging of solar flares, according to research by NASA scientists.

Manual corneal thickness measurement using a portable SD-OCT device provides epithelial, stromal, Descemet's membrane and total corneal thickness measurements with clinically acceptable intra- and interoperator reliability in healthy equine eyes.
