Apply to the Geodata Science for Professionals Master's Program

March 15, 2019

Employers seek in today’s advanced Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics workforce skills in analytics and data science, including Big Data (Denecke, D. et al. 2017, Council of Graduate Schools). In the United States, however, geoscience curricula are in general not designed to capitalize on the digital revolution, especially the enormous growth in data science. Thus, there has been a disconnect between the jobs of the future and the curricula of the present.

'Goldilocks' thinking to cut cost of fuel cells in electric vehicles

February 21, 2019

Electric vehicles running on fuel cells are too pricey to scale up. A new method for evaluating how much metal would be required for fuel cell electrodes can help cut down on expensive platinum needed in fuel cell electrodes. The technique uses the forces on a metal's surface to identify the ideal electrode thickness.

Energy demand, sources will change with Indiana's climate

February 20, 2019

Hoosiers will heat homes and businesses less but rely more on air conditioning as Indiana’s climate warms. They’ll also get more of their energy from natural gas and renewable sources as those become more cost-effective throughout the rest of the century.

We can breed honeybees to be cleaner -and it may help save the species, study says

February 20, 2019

The key to saving the honeybees might be in their genes. A new study published in the journal Genome Biology and Evolution found that honeybees have "a minimum of 73 genes associated with hygienic behavior." Those that have the gene are prone to clean the colony by removing sick or dead bees that may carry diseases that lead to colony collapse disorder.
