Deep-sea devices 'hear' earthquakes, singing whales and an exploding ship
Deep-sea devices ’hear’ earthquakes, singing whales and an exploding ship
Explosions from a sinking ship are among the unexpected sounds detected by 50 highly sensitive seismometers placed on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean as part of an international collaboration led by UCL researcher Professor Ana Ferreira. The seismometers, which have now been collected after spending a year at the bottom of the ocean, record the Earth's ground motions on the sea floor and thus capture the Earth's "pulse".

Analysis: Earth's oxygen has varied over time - here's how our data could help us spot alien life
Analysis: Earth’s oxygen has varied over time - here’s how our data could help us spot alien life
Writing in The Conversation, Dr Alex Krause (UCL Earth Science) and Benjamin J. W. Mills at University of Leeds explain how using the James Webb Space Telescope to look for oxygen in the universe could help scientists discover evidence of extra-terrestrial life. Are we alone in the universe? This is a question that has intrigued humans for centuries and inspired countless studies and works of fiction.

Satellites to map ocean clouds that keep Earth cool
Satellites to map ocean clouds that keep Earth cool
A new European Space Agency (ESA) mission involving UCL researchers will 3D map Earth's "cooling blanket" of low-lying ocean clouds that may be at risk of disappearing due to climate change. The 10 Earth Explorer mission, known as Harmony, has been approved by the ESA Programme Board on Earth Observation, meaning it can move from the preparatory phase into the design consolidation and implementation phase, with a launch scheduled for 2029.
