How to make wild and autonomous nature

2019.05.02An international team of researchers have worked to clarify what rewilding actually is, and how best to design and implement rewilding as a practical tool to reverse the global losses of biodiversity.

Electrical cable bacteria were discovered in Aarhus Bay by researchers from Aarhus University, who have described five species of these bacteria so far: three from Aarhus Bay and two from Giber stream. The first species was naturally given the name Electrothrix aarhusiensis. This is a cross section of a cable bacterium with its characteristic ridges containing electrical wires. Photo: Chr.

Electric bacteria in the spotlight

2019.03.18Several years ago, researchers from Aarhus discovered a curious form of electric life on the seafloor. Since then it has become increasingly clear that a significant part of the bacterial world is electrified. Leading researchers from around the world will set this life form in focus at the first-ever electromicrobiology conference, held on March 21 and 22 in Aarhus, Denmark.

Over the next three years, the researchers will strategically supplement the open source DNA sequence library for marine seabed animals from the North Sea. The database will remain accessible even after the GEANS project ends. (Photo: GEANS).

Mapping North Sea bottom-dwellers via automated DNA-recognition

2019.05.20A new DNA library of life in the North Sea is the aim of new Interreg research project GEANS.

Polutants in the inventory include carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and many more.

Danish emission inventory for industrial processes till 2016

2019.03.20The new sector report regarding emission inventory for industrial processes up till 2016 has been published. The report contains inventories of industrial pollutants and is compiled by scientists at DCE – National Centre for Environment and Energy.

The national study has been done for particle emissions across both rural, urban and suburban sites all over Denmark.

The Particle Project 2017-2018

2019.03.20Particle emissions across rural, urban and suburban sites in Denmark have been measured and the results gathered in a new Particle Project report by scientists from DCE – National Centre for Environment and Energy.

eDNA - The new environmental monitoring technique

2019.03.14Environmental DNA, also known as eDNA, is a new technique being used for environmental monitoring. It is to replace the existing, more traditional monitoring techniques as it is both faster, easier and more accurate than its predecessors according to a report from DCE - National Centre for Environment and Energy.

An improvement in air quality has resulted in about 400 fewer premature deaths in 2017 compared to 2016. This decrease is amongst other reasons due to a general reduction in Danish emissions.

Danish air quality continues to improve

2019.03.14A new report shows a continued improvement of the air quality in Danish cities. An estimated 400 fewer people died premature deaths related to air pollution in 2017 compared to the previous year according to a study done by scientists from DCE – National Centre for Environment and Energy.

Oil spills at sea can originate from different sources such as land runoff, transport at sea and offshore drilling.

Arctic marine potential of microbial oil degradation

2019.03.14A new report from DCE – National Centre for Environment and Energy details research into the potential of microbial oil degradation in the Arctic Ocean.

Projection of greenhouse gases 2017-2040

2019.02.27New report details models, data and projections of greenhouse gases in Denmark to the year 2040. The report is the work of scientists from DCE - National Centre for Environment and Energy.

Water in the Danish households contain no significant concentrations of microplastic according to scientists from DCE (photo: Colourbox).

Danish tap water is microplast free

2019.02.27“No significant concentrations of microplastic” in Danish tap water a new report concludes. The report is the result of a study done by scientists from DCE – National Centre for Environment and Energy.

Being surrounded by green space in childhood may improve mental health of adults

2019.02.26Children who grow up with greener surroundings have up to 55% less risk of developing various mental disorders later in life. This is shown by a new study from Aarhus University, emphasizing the need for designing green and healthy cities for the future.
