Editor's Selections 13 Comments
By Sarah Kendrew

Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

On Smaller Questions, a guest post by Tripp Jones on radiation levels from TSA scanners was pretty interesting reading.

Scientists have enlisted the help of elephant seals to study climate change in the Antarctic. Sensors mounted on the seals’ head return valuable data of conditions in the oceans beneath the ice. Elephant seals: the new grad students?

More on climate change, GrrlScientist describes new research into how CO2 and rainfall levels might affect vegetation in Africa. Will it spell the end of the savannas?

That’s it for the week. I’ll be back next Monday with more selections.

    Chaqueta corta de moda, lleno y la expansión del collar, lindo lindo, quieres vestir más puntos se puede utilizar con pieza de patrón de marea Mickey Mouse T-shirt. Apariencia regordeta no se ve gordo, vestido con leggings ajustados y botas de piezas, es la tendencia. Abajo de un estilo de párrafo corto es muy conveniente para el pequeño MM, diseño de la chaqueta de manga corta es muy elegante, con un hermoso cinturón, parecía muy encantador. En ese momento, llevaba un pantalón negro estrecho piernas, tiene una rica visión de los colores. Llevar faldas de lana, señoras le hará más belleza.
