Researchers from UNH’s Space Science Center (SSC) have used observations from NASA’s MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, Geo-chemistry, and Ranging, or MESSENGER, spacecraft an effort to track and analyze the evolution of solar storms and improve the forecasting of their arrival times at Earth.
When the sun hurls a billion tons of high-energy particles and magnetic fields into space at speeds of...
Imagine a world where doctors and scientists could understand the most fundamental causes of human blindness. For Rick Cote, professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Biomedical Sciences, it is this ultimate goal — coupled with an innate curiosity about how vision works at the molecular level — that fuels his passion for research.
A four-year study led by Paul Kirshen, research professor of civil and environmental engineering at UNH, will examine the future of dams in New England. The project marks an expansion in partners and scope for the New England Sustainability Consortium (NEST), adding Rhode Island to the existing partnership between Maine and New Hampshire.
The project will empower stakeholders to make complex...
