CU researchers develop new software to advance brain image research

June 27, 2011

A University of Colorado Boulder research team has developed a new software program allowing neuroscientists to produce single brain images pulled from hundreds of individual studies, trimming weeks and even months from what can be a tedious, time-consuming research process.

Strongest evidence yet indicates icy Saturn moon hiding saltwater ocean

June 22, 2011

Samples of icy spray shooting from Saturn's moon Enceladus collected during Cassini spacecraft flybys show the strongest evidence yet for the existence of a large-scale, subterranean saltwater ocean, says a new international study led by the University of Heidelberg and involving the University of Colorado Boulder.

CU-Boulder part of international team to discover neutrinos can change 'flavors'

June 15, 2011

An international research team led by Japan and including the University of Colorado Boulder may have taken a significant step in discovering why matter trumped antimatter at the time of the Big Bang, helping to create virtually all of the galaxies and stars in the universe.

CU-Boulder to participate in NASA mission to land on an asteroid

CU, MIT top universities for Department of Energy Early Career Research awards

May 17, 2011

Three University of Colorado Boulder professors will receive five-year, $750,000 grants as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Early Career Research Program created in 2010 to bolster the nation's scientific workforce with top young researchers

Newly detected chemical in smoke may have serious health implications, says new study

May 16, 2011

Cigarette smoking, burning forests and even cooking fires all release a chemical compound not previously known to exist in significant quantities in smoke and which may have potential human health impacts, says a new study involving the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Colorado Boulder.

CU-Boulder leading study of wind turbine wakes

April 26, 2011

While wind turbines primarily are a source of renewable energy, they also produce wakes of invisible ripples that can affect the atmosphere and influence wind turbines downstream -- an issue being researched in a newly launched study led by the University of Colorado Boulder's Julie Lundquist, assistant professor in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences department.
