On 1 December, a team of glaciologists and climate researchers from ULB , UCLouvain and the University of Colorado will head for the Antarctic. On the agenda is the second field campaign for the Mass2Ant project being coordinated by UCLouvain , which also includes partners from the IRM (the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium) and Delft University of Technology.
Geologists have discovered that some magmas split into two separate liquids, one of which is very rich in iron. Their findings can help to discover new iron ore deposits for mining. Iron ore is mined in about 50 countries, with Australia, Brazil and China as the largest producers.
Scientists discovered that giant earthquakes reoccur with relatively regular intervals. When also taking into account smaller earthquakes, the repeat interval becomes increasingly more irregular to a level where earthquakes happen randomly in time.
Introduction: Dutch and Flemish researchers studied the colonisation by coastal vegetation - Coastal vegetation interacts with water flow and the transport of sand and sediment: this interaction plays a key role in the rise of characteristic landscape forms in coastal habitats.
A team of scientists has described a new dinosaur species that could both walk and swim. “We always thought dinosaurs were terrestrial, but now it is very clear for the first time that there were also swimming dinosaurs”, says palaeontologist Pascal Godefroit of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences.
Introduction: Researcher UAntwerp and his international colleagues conduct research on Swiss Alps forest species. In the Swiss Alps, the time lag between tree leafing at high and low altitudes has shortened dramatically since the 1960s due to climate change.
