Termites could Maintain Water Levels within Tolerable Ranges inside Mounds[Mar 25, 2019]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) conducted a study to investigate the spatio-temporal variations in the water content in the mound structures of O. yunnanensis. They used the dye tracer infiltration method to determine how the existing mound structure and/or termite activities contribute to regulating the moisture inside the mounds.

Inclusion of Crop Model in Climate Model to Promote Climate Modeling[Mar 25, 2019]

A joint research team in China developed a new crop-climate coupled model. The model provides a good tool to investigate the relationship between crop development and climate change for global change studies. It also has an excellent ability in simulating crop phenology, and offers a slight correction of the bias in the original climate model in some typical areas.

Incredible Slow Motion Footage Shows Drops of Water Spinning at 7,300 Revolutions a Minute After Bouncing off a Specially Designed Surface[Mar 25, 2019]

A mesmerising video shows the moment a water droplet bounces off a surface and is made to spin at more than 7,300 revolutions per minute (RPM). Researchers from the Institute of Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences, say the observed process opens up a promising avenue for the delicate control of liquid motion.

Metallic Metasurface: How to Stay Under the Radar?[Mar 25, 2019]

A team of researchers from the State Key Laboratory of Optical Technologies on Nano-Fabrication and Micro-Engineering, from the Chinese Academy of Sciences designed an all-metallic metasurface, using high-temperature resistant metal materials. By optimizing the catenary optical fields and dispersion, broadband and wide-angle diffusion in the microwave band was realized.

Researchers Provide A Global View on How Host Cells Respond to SFTSV Infection[Mar 25, 2019]

In a joint study, to systematically identify host proteins involved in SFTSV-host interactions, the research groups led by Prof. HU Zhihong and Prof. XIAO Gengfu from Wuhan Institute of Virology investigated the dynamic host cellular responses to SFTSV infection by isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ)-based quantitative proteomic analysis.

Scientists Discover Large-scale Quasi-periodic Wave in Solar Atmosphere[Mar 25, 2019]

Dr. SHEN Yuandeng from Yunnan Observatories reported an unambiguous large-scale quasi-periodic coronal wave consisting of multiple wave fronts, which occurred on April 24, 2012, and was accompanied by the eruptions of a GOES C3.7 flare and a rotating filament.
