CUHK sets out to reveal impact of Arctic amplification on East Asian winter climate

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) An ongoing research project aims to identify and explain teleconnections and future changes in the East Asian Winter Monsoon under Arctic Amplification. This integral study...Show More Summary

Is the Earth warming? The ocean gives you the answer

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Previously, the global mean surface temperature has been widely used as a key metric of global warming. However, a new study published in AGU's Eos proposed a better way of measuring global warming: monitoring ocean heat content change and sea level rise.

First neutron beam produced: A great milestone for CSNS

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) A neutron beam was produced at the China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) for the first time on Aug. 28. The achievement is a milestone for the CSNS project as it marks the completion of main construction and the start of the test operation phase.

A new method used to generate ensemble initial perturbations

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) In the past two decades, ensemble forecasting has been developed substantially to become a powerful approach that improves numerical weather prediction. Recently, data assimilation schemes were combined with the dynamical methods to better sample the analysis uncertainties,

ILCregs play an important role in regulation of intestinal inflammation

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) Researchers from FAN Zusen's group at the Institute of Biophysics (IBP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have identified a regulatory subpopulation of ILCs (called ILCregs) that exist in the gut and harbor a unique genetic identity distinct from ILCs or regulatory T cells (Tregs).

New study provides high-resolution insights into plants' light harvesting process under low light

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) CHANG Wenrui-LI Mei's group, ZHANG Xinzheng's group and LIU Zhenfeng's group from the Institute of Biophysics (IBP) at CAS collaborate and solved two cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) structures of C2S2M2-type PSII-LHCII supercomplex from pea at 2.7 and 3.2 Å resolution, respectively.

An echo from the past to the future on abrupt seasonal changes of the general circulation

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Professor Duzheng YE was decades ahead of his time in proposing a model experiment to investigate whether abrupt seasonal changes of the general circulation can arise through circulation feedbacks alone, unrelated to underlying inhomogeneities at the lower boundary.

CAS scientists make autism advance using monkey model

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) Recently, researchers from Dr. Zhang Yongqing's group at the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) found neurodevelopmental abnormality in a SHANK3-deficient non-human primate for the first time.

Identifying individual atmospheric equatorial waves from a total flow field

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) A new study presents a method for identifying individual equatorial waves in wind and geopotential height fields using horizontal wave structures derived from classical equatorial wave theory.

Scientists identify central neural circuit for itch sensation

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) A recent study carried out by Dr. Sun Yangang's lab at the Institute of Neuroscience of the Chinese Academy of Sciences discovered a central neural circuit that is critical for transmitting the itch signal. Show More Summary

Scientist emphasizes importance of multi-level thinking

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) An unusual paper by Prof. Michael E. McIntyre from University of Cambridge touches on a range of deep questions, including insights into the nature of science itself, and...Show More Summary

Tibetan Plateau gets wetter and greener in early summer in recent decades

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Known as the 'water tower of Asia,' the Tibetan Plateau (TP) is the source of the 10 largest rivers in Asia, supporting more than 1.4 billion people and exerting a substantial influence on the water resources, agriculture, and ecosystems of the downstream countries.

Global warming will leave different fingerprints on global subtropical anticyclones

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) To assess the possible responses of the subtropical anticyclones to greenhouse gases (GHG) forcing, scientists adopted multiple metrics and obtained robust results. Coupled...Show More Summary

Scientists unlock planthoppers' role in rice stripe virus reproduction

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) Recently, researchers from the Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have discovered how a severe rice virus reproduces inside the small brown planthopper, a major carrier of the virus, and have published this work in eLife.

Warm periods in the 20th century are not unprecedented during the last 2,000 years

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) CAS scientists collected a large number of proxies and reconstructed a 2,000-year temperature series in China with a 10-year resolution, enabling them to quantitatively reveal the characteristics of temperature change in China over a common era.

Scientists map the distribution of antimicrobial resistance across Chinese major cities

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) Professor ZHU Yongguan from the Institute of Urban Environment of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and his collaborators recently conducted a nationwide survey of antimicrobial resistance elements...Show More Summary

First unmanned meteorological observation in Taklamakan

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) Taklamakan is the largest desert in Asia with the finest sand in the world. It's the first time the lower atmosphere and land surface in Taklamakan are observed by a UA...

Interactive protein posttranslational modifications regulate stress responses

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) Dr. Zuo Jianru's group at the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology (IGDB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences identified PRMT5, a protein arginine methyltransferase, as an S-nitrosylated protein in a nitroproteomics study in Arabidopsis.
