CU researchers contribute to frost quake modeling research

Nov. 16, 2020

Frost quakes are not particularly rare, but they are harder to observe than traditional earthquakes. Professor Roseanna Neupauer was part of a recent effort to develop new models with the Oulu, Finland, 2016 quake data, the results of which are discussed in a new paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research.

Experts weigh in on airborne transmission of COVID-19

July 10, 2020

The novel coronavirus may be able to travel from person to person through tiny particles floating in the air, according to a recent letter signed by 239 scientists from across the globe. The international team, which includes six faculty members from CU Boulder, lays out evidence showing just how tenacious the pathogen behind COVID-19 can be: the virus, the group says, can likely drift through and survive in the air, especially in crowded, indoor spaces with poor ventilation like many bars and restaurants.
