Researchers use Tree Rings to Gain Insight into Drought Weather Conditions

Researchers use Tree Rings to Gain Insight into Past Drought Weather Conditions

With the help of sandpaper and microscopes, researchers have examined tree rings from drought-sensitive tree species from the Weber River basin in Utah. By using information from the tree ring analysis, they designed a catalogue listing some of the worst drought conditions which took place in the recent times.

Researchers have come up with a tree ring chronology that extends back 585 years into Utah's natural history. Also, they calibrate the correlation between ring thickness and drought severity by taking modern stream flow measurements.

Viruses in Deep Sea Hijack Bacterial Cells to Propagate

Viruses in Deep Sea Hijack Bacterial Cells to Propagate

Viruses have found a safe place for themselves in the deep sea oceans through give and take process. By stealing those genes that are capable of making sulfur-digesting enzymes, viruses provide metabolic backup to bacteria feasting on the sulfur plumes of hydrothermal vents.

In response, they use bacteria as host for their survival in harsh deep sea oceans. Common bacteria-infecting viruses found in oceans are bacteriophage that acts as key source of energy for organisms residing in hydrothermal vents.
