New NSF special report released ahead of Earth Day: April Showers Bring … The Science of Spring

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 10:36

From flowers' microscopic cells to thunderstorms called supercells, researchers funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) are studying the science of spring. Now, in time for Earth Day, a new NSF special report -- April Showers Bring...The Science of Spring -- looks at what makes spring such a vibrant, and sometimes dangerous, season.

NSF supports studies of such diverse spring subjects as the bloom of plant ...

U.S. companies performed 18% of R&D outside the United States in 2013

Wed, 04/12/2017 - 15:00

U.S. companies spent $73 billion on research and development (R&D) performed outside the United States in 2013, according to a new report by the National Science Foundation's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics.

The total represented 18 percent of U.S. companies' total R&D performance. These same companies spent $323 billion on R&D performed within the United States in 2013.

Almost 50 ...

Scientists discover fossil of dinosaur ancestor with surprising croc-like appearance

Wed, 04/12/2017 - 13:00

Scientists have long wondered what the earliest dinosaur relatives looked like. Most assumed they would resemble miniature dinosaurs, about the size of chickens, and walk on two legs.

The discovery of Teleocrater rhadinus, however, has forced scientists to reassess their ideas. Based on a fossil unearthed in southern Tanzania, these early relatives were carnivorous animals that measured approximately 7-10 feet long, with long necks and tails. Rather than walking on two legs, ...

Polar glaciers may be home to previously undiscovered carbon cycle

Mon, 04/10/2017 - 15:15

Microbes in streams flowing on the surface of glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic may represent a previously underestimated source of organic material and be part of an as yet undiscovered "dynamic local carbon cycle," according to a new paper published by researchers supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The cycle, they argue, could become a significant global source of carbon as temperatures rise worldwide and microbial activity increases.

An international ...
