Reducing failed deliveries, truck parking time could improve downtown Seattle congestion, new report finds
Reducing failed deliveries, truck parking time could improve downtown Seattle congestion, new report finds
In Amazon's hometown, people turn to their computers to order everything from groceries to last-minute birthday presents to the odd toothbrush or medication forgotten from the store. If online shopping continues to grow at its current rate, there may be twice as many trucks delivering packages in Seattle's city center within five years, a new report projects - and double the number of trucks looking for a parking space.

Cities of the future may be built with locally available volcanic ash
MIT engineers working with scientists in Kuwait have found that volcanic rocks, when pulverized into a fine ash, can be used as a sustainable additive in concrete structures. In a paper published online in the Journal of Cleaner Production , the researchers report that, by replacing a certain percentage of traditional cement with volcanic ash, they can reduce a concrete structure's "embodied energy," or the total energy that goes into making concrete.

Millions of city trees at risk from rising temperatures
A new study has found that almost one quarter of trees in Australian cities are at risk from increasing temperatures in urban environments due to climate change and urban heat islands, posing a threat to some tree species in our cities. Researchers from the University of Melbourne and the University of Queensland from the Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub (CAUL) have found that 24 per cent of all public trees (35 per cent of species) in Australia's cities are at high risk from increased temperatures by 2070, in the business-as-usual emissions scenario.

How cities can fight climate change most effectively
What are the best ways for U.S. cities to combat climate change? A new study co-authored by an MIT professor indicates it will be easier for cities to reduce emissions coming from residential energy use rather than from local transportation - and this reduction will happen mostly thanks to better building practices, not greater housing density.

Study measures light’s radical impact on bird behaviour
Migratory birds are both attracted to and influenced by light. As a result, their behaviours alter drastically in the presence of artificial light at night, according to a new Oxford University collaboration, that was conducted at a unique landmark: the 'Tribute in Light' in New York. Every year, billions of birds undertake migratory journeys during the spring and autumn months.

Strength of global stratospheric circulation measured for first time
Strength of global stratospheric circulation measured for first time
When commercial airplanes break through the clouds to reach cruising altitude, they have typically arrived in the stratosphere, the second layer of Earth's atmosphere. The air up there is dry and clear, and much calmer than the turbulent atmosphere we experience on the ground. And yet, for all its seeming tranquility, the stratosphere can be a powerful conveyor belt, pulling air up from the Earth's equatorial region and pushing it back down toward the poles in a continuously circulating pattern.
