Novel Nanomaterial Achieves Rapid Formation of Natural Gas Hydrates[Sep 19, 2017]

The research team led by GUO Rongbo from Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy Bioprocess Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences has been focusing on natural gas hydrates promoters. Recently, they used polymer nanospheres as the carrier and grafted the functional group of SDS (-SO3-) and nano-Ag particles on the surface of the nanospheres via emulsion polymerization and electrostatic adsorption & in situ reduction to prepare novel nano-promoter for gas hydrate formation.

First Successful Operation of CSNS Cryogenic System[Sep 18, 2017]

The cryogenic system for the China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) cryogenic system has been successfully operated over the past four weeks since August 16th. Experience gained during this operation period will lay a solid foundation for long-term stable operation in the future. For the next step, the CSNS cryogenic system will run in conjunction with beam tuning for the target station and spectrometer.

Is the Earth Warming? The Ocean Gives the Answer[Sep 15, 2017]

Previously, the global mean surface temperature has been widely used as a key metric for global warming. However, a new study published in AGU's Eos proposed a better way of measuring global warming: monitoring ocean heat content change and sea level rise. The authors come from a variety of international communities including China (Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences), U.S.A. (NCAR, NOAA, and University of St. Thomas) and France (Mercator Ocean).
