KETURA, Israel -- The first prime minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion, once had a vision to "make the desert bloom." Through innovation, arid regions of this country were successfully turned into bountiful farmland. Now Israelis are harvesting another resource: renewable energy.
Scientist gets funding to build experimental Arctic sea ice chamber
The Arctic is a harsh place, with subzero temperatures and rapidly changing weather conditions. That can make it difficult for researchers to conduct controlled experiments. But Roland von Glasow, a professor at the University of East Anglia who studies the chemical reactions between Arctic sea ice and the atmosphere, has a solution: He plans to build an 8-meter-cubed model Arctic Ocean at his university, where he can study how sea ice reacts with the atmosphere from the comfort of his laboratory.
