Certain Arctic lakes store more greenhouse gases than they release
New research, supported by the National Science Foundation, counters a widely-held scientific view that thawing permafrost uniformly accelerates atmospheric warming, indicating instead that certain Arctic lakes store more greenhouse gases than they emit into the atmosphere.

Taking great ideas from the lab to the fab
A 'valley of death' is well-known to entrepreneurs -- the lull between government funding for research and industry support for prototypes and products. To confront this problem, in 2013 the National Science Foundation created a new program called InTrans to extend the life of the most high-impact NSF-funded research and help great ideas transition from lab to practice.

Expanding the breadth and impact of cybersecurity and privacy research
As our lives and businesses become ever more intertwined with the Internet and networked technologies, it is crucial to continue to develop and improve cybersecurity measures to keep our data, devices and critical systems safe, secure, private and accessible.

Extramural R&D funding by US-located businesses nears $30 billion in 2011
In 2011, US-located companies spent $29.6 billion for extramural (purchased and collaborative) research and development performed by domestic and overseas organizations, according to statistics from the Business R&D and Innovation Survey. This amount includes contract or otherwise purchased R&D ($24 billion) and payments to R&D collaborators ($5.6 billion). Most of these extramural R&D expenditures involve domestic providers and partners.

Scientists chart a baby boom -- in southwestern Native-Americans from 500 to 1300 A.D.
Scientists have sketched out one of the greatest baby booms in North American history, a centuries-long 'growth blip' among southwestern Native-Americans between 500 and 1300 A.D.

Ancient ocean currents may have changed pace and intensity of ice ages
Climate scientists have long tried to explain why ice-age cycles became longer and more intense some 900,000 years ago, switching from 41,000-year cycles to 100,000-year cycles.

Demonstrating a driverless future
In the coming decades, we will likely commute to work and explore the countryside in autonomous, or driverless, cars capable of communicating with the roads they are traveling on. A convergence of technological innovations in embedded sensors, computer vision, artificial intelligence, control and automation, and computer processing power is making this feat a reality.
