Seeking solutions to climate change

Stanford faculty study the causes and effects of climate change, and investigate new ways of reducing carbon emissions through green energy technologies and policy decisions.

Mapping groundwater from the air

Low-flying helicopters help map underground freshwater resources and forecast saltwater intrusion along the Monterey Bay.

High pressure key to lighter, stronger metal alloys

Subjecting complex metal mixtures called high-entropy alloys to extremely high pressures could lead to finer control over the arrangement of their atoms, which in turn can result in more desirable properties.
