Scientists say caribou are arguably the most important land animals in the arctic, and they’re hoping new research will help them understand how they are being impacted by climate change and human development. Through drones, satellite images, and GPS collars with video cameras, Logan Berner with Northern Arizona University is one of the experts working on the new project. The research, which will span over the next three years, includes a number of institutions and was made possible by… Read more
The tiny cosmos of organisms living on a streamer of algae in a river—the algal microbiome—could help scientists learn what turns an environment from healthy to toxic and back again. A multidisciplinary team led by Northern Arizona University has won $3 million from the National Science Foundation to translate the codex contained in the microbiome of common algae into computer algorithms that can predict a wide range of microbial interactions.

The rising popularity of self-driving cars has led to the creation of an additional research and development branch in the recent years: Autonomous Racing. Researchers are developing algorithms and hardware for high performance race vehicles which aim to operate autonomously on the edge of the vehicle limits: high speeds, high accelerations, high computation power, low reaction time, adversarial environments. In… Read more
Three SICCS researchers were named among the first cohort of nineteen NEON Ambassadors. NEON, the National Ecological Observatory Network, is the world’s leading continental scale ecological research infrastructure. NEON’s Ambassador Program is envisioned to empower and connect researchers and educators who are eager to engage with their communities. They will help their communities use NEON to accelerate scientific discovery, enhance educational opportunities, increase diversity and inclusion of the scientific community, and/or inform public policy. Meet… Read more
