Reflection of Earthquake Source Process in the Ionosphere could pave way for deciphering earthquake precursors using space-based observations

New Delhi, November 29, 2023: Earthquake processes, even relatively smaller ones, have their reflection in the ionosphere, as they influence the amplitudes and periods of coseismic ionospheric perturbations (CIP) along with factors such as geomagnetism and line-of-sights geometry, according to a novel study. The finding can help observing earthquake source processes from the space which […]

Scientists fabricate 2D protein monolayer that can help to study diseases like Amyloidosis

New Delhi, November 25, 2023: A 2D protein monolayer was fabricated by scientists by assembling lysozyme molecules — model protein in studying diseases like Amyloidosis. Amyloidosis is a rare disease that occurs when a protein called amyloid builds up in organs. This amyloid buildup can affect the working of organs like heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, […]
