More than a century of work reached its conclusion May 20, with all base units of measurement now tied to defined constants rather than physical objects locked away in vaults. Next up at Stanford: Quantifying us.
Cattle are among the agricultural and industrial emitters of methane, a powerful driver of global warming. Stanford researchers have outlined a seemingly counterintuitive approach to removing the gas from the atmosphere.
Measurements of suspended sediment concentrations reveal a lot about the health of a waterway, but information has been difficult to obtain. A new approach uses a drone to take high-resolution photos to reveal turbidity.
With a few changes to its existing energy operations, Stanford could further reduce its carbon footprint and costs in a model that other large campuses, towns and even cities can benefit from, a new study finds.
Theoretical physicist Shamit Kachru and three of his graduate students talk about the social fabric behind their research, the cycle of confusion and discovery, and the sense of awe – or the cool factor – that drives them.
