Drammen, around 40 miles from Oslo in Norway is using the local fjord to heat nearly all the homes and businesses of its 65,000 residents. The fjord’s water is at 8C, pretty chilly. However, using heat pump technology and a few innovations they have managed to create a system that saves them money and cuts down on carbon emissions. Heat Pumps are not new, but the ones we’ve seen have all been air to ground or more common examples are your freezer or air conditioning. They absorb heat from a cold space and release it to a warmer one. It all came about because the city’s heating company realised the water temperature […]

How the Sahara Helps Feed the Amazon (Video)

02/24/15 5:34 pm

Sahara to Amazon
This cool video from NASA shows how dust is transferred across the Atlantic to the Amazon rainforest and helps nourish the plants growing there. For the first time scientists have measured the amount of dust and the amount of phosphorus in the dust. The later acts like a fertiliser and helps replenish the phosphorus the rainforest loses each year, around 22,000 tons. Amazing how something we perceive as being desolate like a desert actually has an important role in sustaining somewhere we see as teeming with life. Image and video from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
