Comparing climate models to real world shows differences in precipitation intensity
Precipitation is difficult to represent in global climate models. Although most single-column models can reproduce the observed average precipitation reasonably well, there are significant differences in their details. Scientists evaluated several single-column models, providing insights on how (...)

New method increases accuracy of ovarian cancer prognosis and diagnosis
Scientists have uncovered patterns of DNA anomalies that predict a woman's outcome significantly better than tumor stage. In addition, these patterns are the first known indicator of how well a woman will respond to platinum therapy. The patterns were discovered by using a new mathematical (...)

Columbia Engineering professor invents a video camera that runs without a battery
A research team led by Shree K. Nayar, T.C. Chang Professor of Computer Science at Columbia Engineering, has invented a prototype video camera that is the first to be fully self-powered--it can produce an image each second, indefinitely, of a well-lit indoor scene. They designed a pixel that (...)

Quantum Hall effect: Quantization of 'surface Dirac states' could lead to exotic applications
Researchers have uncovered the first evidence of an unusual quantum phenomenon -- the integer quantum Hall effect -- in a new type of film, called a 3-D topological insulator. This discovery could help move science forward toward the goal of dissipationless electronics -- electronic devices (...)

Network 'hubs' in brain attract information, much like airport system
"Hubs" in the brain -- highly connected regions that like hubs of the airport system -- act as critical destinations where information is received and integrated, scientists report. "Understanding how information transfer occurs in the brain is critical, especially if network hubs are taken off (...)

Long-sought magnetic mechanism observed in exotic hybrid materials
Scientists have measured a subatomic phenomenon first predicted more than 60 years ago. This so-called van Vleck magnetism is the key to harnessing topological insulators -- hybrid materials that are both conducting and insulating -- and could lead to quantum computers, spintronics, and (...)
