A new study led by Princeton University researchers shows that children may actually live in the immunological shadow of measles for up to three years — leaving them highly susceptible to a host of other deadly diseases.
Princeton University researchers "weighed" Antarctica's ice sheet using gravitational satellite data and found that during the past decade, Antarctica's massive ice sheet lost twice the amount of ice in its western portion compared with what it accumulated in the east. Their conclusion — the southern continent's ice cap is melting ever faster.
Emphasizing the importance of recognizing Earth’s limited resources, the CEO of the outdoor gear company Patagonia told a Princeton University audience April 23 that businesses need to take on social and environmental responsibilities.
Rainforests, which are so critical to the earth's climate, are often thought of as a single collection of ecosystems. But researchers at Princeton University and other institutions have found that the availability of water in rainforests varies greatly among different areas of the globe.
Now in its fourth year, HackPrinceton 2015 brought together students from dozens of institutions for 24 hours of working on any project of their choice. The event organizers helped participants supplement their long hours of programming with activities such as specialized workshops and laser tag.
With the global population rising, analysts and policymakers have targeted Africa's vast wet savannas as a place to produce staple foods and bioenergy groups at low environmental costs. But a new report published in the journal Nature Climate Change finds that converting Africa's wet savannas into farmland would come at a high environmental cost and, in some cases, fail to meet existing standards for renewable fuels.
Princeton University-led research found that antibiotic consumption in livestock worldwide could rise by 67 percent between 2010 and 2030, and possibly endanger the effectiveness of antimicrobials in humans.
