The Arctic has been losing sea ice over the past several decades as Earth warms.

However, each year, as the sea ice starts to melt in the spring following its maximum wintertime extent, scientists still struggle to estimate exactly how much ice they expect will disappear through the melt season.

Now, a new NASA forecasting model based on satellite measurements is allowing researchers to make better estimates. Continue reading

Explore Microcalorimetry

MicroCal PEAQ-ITCIsothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) is used to determine the binding parameters of biomolecules in a single analysis.

It is an essential tool for drug design and the study and regulation of protein interactions.

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a powerful analytical tool for understanding the stability of proteins and other biomolecules.

It has wide application in protein engineering, rational drug design and biopharmaceutical production, where developing stable proteins is a critical goal. Continue reading
