Low-oxygen 'dead zones' in North Pacific linked to past ocean warming
A new study has found a link between abrupt ocean warming at the end of the last ice age and the sudden onset of low-oxygen, or hypoxic, conditions that led to vast marine dead zones. Results of the research, which was funded by the National Science Foundation, are published today in the journal Nature.

Ten ways advanced computing catalyzes science
When researchers need to compare complex new genomes, or map new regions of the Arctic in high-resolution detail, or detect signs of dark matter, or make sense of massive amounts of functional MRI data, they turn to the high-performance computing and data analysis systems supported by the National Science Foundation.

Crash test simulations expose real risks
More than 33,000 Americans die in motor vehicle crashes annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Modern restraint systems save lives, but some deaths and injuries remain -- and restraints themselves can cause some injuries.

Buried in ash, ancient Salvadoran village shows images of daily life
A continuing look at a Maya village in El Salvador -- frozen in time by a blanket of volcanic ash from 1,400 years ago -- shows the farming families who lived there went about their daily lives with virtually no strong-arming by the elite royalty lording over the valley.
