Deep-sea devices ’hear’ earthquakes, singing whales and an exploding ship
Explosions from a sinking ship are among the unexpected sounds detected by 50 highly sensitive seismometers placed on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean as part of an international collaboration led by UCL researcher Professor Ana Ferreira. The seismometers, which have now been collected after spending a year at the bottom of the ocean, record the Earth's ground motions on the sea floor and thus capture the Earth's "pulse".

Robust and flexible to synthetic methane
Robust and flexible to synthetic methane
Synthetic energy carriers are carbon-neutral and make renewable energy transportable and storable in the long term. Synthetically produced methane is one of them. The problem: The production involves rather high energy losses; moreover, existing processes require the methane to be purified. To change this, researchers have developed a new, optimized reactor concept for methanation.
