New findings for viral research on bicycle crashes at railroad crossings — ScienceDaily

New research by Professor Chris Cherry follows his previous research that drew worldwide attention to the frequency of bicycle crashes at a railway crossing near his UT office. His new work, “A jughandle design will virtually eliminate single bicycle crashes at a railway crossing,” was published in the Journal of Transport & Health and provides […]

Laboratory findings associated with severe illness, mortality among hospitalized patients with COVID

What The Study Did: This observational study examined how well sociodemographic features, laboratory value and comorbidities of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in Eastern Massachusetts might predict a course of severe illness. Authors: Roy H. Perlis, M.D., M.Sc., of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and an associate editor at JAMA Network Open, is the corresponding author. To access the […]

Carbon-releasing ‘zombie fires’ in peatlands could be dampened by new findings

Imperial College London researchers have simulated for the first time how soil moisture content affects the ignition and spread of smouldering peat fires, which can release up to 100 times more carbon into the atmosphere than flaming fires. They also simulated how several smaller peat fires can merge into one large blaze, and tracked the […]
