Gravity Data Reveal Unexpected Antarctic Ice Variations

As more coastal communities face the looming threat of rising sea levels, it’s more important than ever to accurately predict changes in one of the greatest potential sources of sea level rise—the melting of Antarctica’s massive ice sheet. Recently, scientists analyzed nearly 2 decades’ worth of data from sensitive NASA satellites documenting mass […]

Study shows how variations in SARS-CoV-2 host gene expression can be linked to variations in COVID-19 susceptibility and symptom severity — ScienceDaily

People have different susceptibilities to SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind the COVID-19 pandemic, and develop varying degrees of fever, fatigue, and breathing problems — common symptoms of the illness. What might explain this variation? Scientists at the University of California, Riverside, and University of Southern California may have an answer to this mystery. In a paper […]
