    • Radium isotopes as tracers of boundary inputs of nutrients and trace elements to the coastal and open ocean 

      Kipp, Lauren (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2018-09)
      Nutrients and trace metals are vital for supporting life in the ocean, but the boundary processes that control the distributions of these elements are poorly constrained. Radium isotopes are well suited to studying inputs ...

      Richardson, Philip L. (2018-07-03)
      Although Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) is well-known to have studied bird flight, few people realize that he was the first to document flight maneuvers now called dynamic soaring. Birds use these maneuvers to extract ...
    • Sparsened neuronal activity in an optogenetically activated olfactory glomerulus
