    How does magma move through the crust?

    Assessing the hazard of volcanic eruptions requires knowledge on where exactly eruptive fissure will be located. Scientists from the Institut des Sciences de la Terre, France, and the GFZ have developed a method to forecast how fast a volcanic dike propagates through the crust and in which direction it will grow. Their study, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth, was now distinguished as a “research spotlight” by the news platform EOS of the American Geophysical Union AGU. Like this, EOS honors “the best accepted articles” that were published in an AGU journal

    DLR at the Hannover Messe: Alternative fuels, low-emission gas turbines and air conditioning for electric cars

    Carbon dioxide-neutral fuels are an important next step on the road to climate-friendly energy supply. Energy researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will present how this kind of energy source can be manufactured and exploited in future, especially using solar power, at the Hannover Messe from 24 to 28 April 2017.

    Facts and Figures: MDC laboratory animal report for 2016

    The aim of over 60 research groups working at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) is to understand the molecular basis of the processes underlying states of health and disease. In some cases, this research requires the use of animals alongside many other types of experiments. Now the MDC has reported the use of 48,773 test animals in 2016 to the Berlin State Office for Health and Social Affairs (Lageso).
