Can avoid worst impacts of climate change if emissions decline steeply

January 14th, 2013 by University of Reading

Tough limits on global emissions of greenhouse gases could avoid 20% to 65% of the damaging effects of climate change by 2100, according to research led by the University of Reading‘s Walker Institute and published in the paper ‘A global assessment of the effects of climate policy on the impacts of climate change‘ in the […]

Novel use of sonar to study wildlife interaction with wave & tidal energy devices

July 13th, 2012 by National Oceanography Centre

UK scientists will measure the effect on the marine environment and wildlife of devices that harness tide and wave energy using sonar technology that has, for the first time, been successfully deployed on the seabed. Renewable energy from tidal currents can be generated using turbines in the tidal flow, and wave energy can be captured […]
