Leslie Lamarche: Using data to analyze the geospace environment
A research engineer at SRI’s Center for Geospace Studies says it’s essential to engage with researchers from other disciplines.
Engineers look to river and ocean currents for clean energy
Scientific American spotlights DOE-funded projects like SRI’s Manta kite, which are designed to harness the power of moving water
Shedding light on the inner workings of the Sun
SRI International researchers developed Active Pixel CMOS detectors for the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Wide-Field Imager for Solar Probe (WISPR). This is the only imaging instrument aboard the Parker Solar Probe.
Thermal insulator transition induced by interface scattering
We develop an effective medium model of thermal conductivity that accounts for both percolation and interface scattering.
Topside Equatorial Ionospheric Density, Temperature, and Composition under Equinox, Low Solar Flux Conditions
We present observations of the topside ionosphere made at the Jicamarca Radio Observatory in March and September 2013, made using a full-profile analysis approach.
Radar Detectability Studies of Slow and Small Zodiacal Dust Cloud Particles. II. A Study of Three Radars with Different Sensitivity
We expand on a new methodology developed by Janches et al. to test the ability of powerful radars to detect the meteoroid populations in question.
Vertical Water Column Survey in the Gulf of Mexico Using Autonomous Underwater Vehicle SOTAB-I
An autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) called the Spilled Oil and Gas Tracking Autonomous Buoy system (SOTAB-I) is being developed to perform onsite measurements of oceanographic data as well as dissolved chemical substances using underwater mass spectrometry.
Multi-step Hydrothermal Liquefaction (HTL) of Algae with Nutrient Recycling
A presentation of SRI research to meet the need of a thermochemical process that allows economic conversion of wet biomass to liquid fuels.
A New Approach to Ocean Wave Parameter Estimates from C-Band ScanSAR Images
We think we have found a promising new technique for wave parameter retrievals from C-band ScanSAR images, which determines peak wavelengths and directions from image spectra.
