Just a few months ago a tsunami devastated the coast of Indonesia and left more than 190,000 people dead. The lack of prevention measures and the ignorance of the real risks in an area with such seismic activity were some of the factors that increased the effects of the seaquake. To avoid similar events in future in the South of Spain, a research team of the University of Granada, in collaboration with Italian scientists, has (...)
What happened after the Big Bang? How did the Universe originate? or When did life arise? They are some of the questions mission Planck intends to answer starting on 2007, one of the most ambitious projects of the ESA (European Space Agency) in which the University of Granada takes part with the design of an instrument and the study of the formation of galaxies in that first Universe. The professor of Theoretical and Cosmos Physics, (...)
The region of Almeria has historically suffered the consequences of an important seismic activity, getting to register recently earthquakes of a magnitude higher than 5 (December of 1994 to January of 1995). Professor Jesús Galindo Zaldivar, together to the Spanish Geological and Mining Institute (IGME –Ministry of Education and Science) have carried out a study of the variables suffered by the earth’s crust in the area of Almeria.Through the geological observation of the (...)
The phenomenon of flaking of some of the columns of the Courtyard of the Lions is one of the main aspects of this book published by the University of Granada: Estudio constructivo-estructural de la galería y columnata del Patio de los Leones de la Alhambra de Granada (Constructive-structural study of the gallery and colonnade of the Courtyard of the Lions of the Alhambra of Granada), a work by professors María Paz Sáez Pérez and José (...)
Andalucía Investiga The mission started in 1997, when the satellite Cassini and the probe Huygens started together their trip Saturn, the second biggest planet of the solar system and famous for its rings. At the end of 2004 they reached their objective and set their division in motion: Cassini, constructed by the NASA, heavier (6 tons), will orbit around the planet until it stops operating in 2008; small Huygens (just 350 kilos), a product of (...)
Providing students with the necessary experience to interrelate the theoretical knowledge acquired on the suggested subjects by using the necessary computer tools for their implementation, and developing it all in the context of a real problem of applied statistics, is one of the main goals of the teaching innovation project “Methodology for the examination, analysis and computing in the development of a statistical project”, coordinated by Professor José Fernando Vera Vera with the participation of (...)
In the framework of the scientific studies of the scientific studies carried out to get to know what soils are contaminated by heavy metals, there is an important difficulty: differentiating which metals are in the environment in a natural way and which of them have increased by human action. This last point is what we would call pollution and it is easy to detect now thanks to the advances by the doctoral thesis recently presented (...)
Prof. Jorge Andrés Rodríguez Navarro has been awarded in the 2004 Awards for new researchers of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry, supported by the chemical company SIGMA-ALDRICH. This teacher of the University of Granada belongs to the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and has carried out important contributions to the development of synthesis and characterization methods, and applications of supramolecular entities, including micro and nanoporous mechanic resistant materials.In this section of the prize of the (...)
The TOMODEC project. High resolution seismic tomography of the Deception Island (Antarctic) and modelling of the seismic-volcanic sources aims to determine in detail the speed structure of seismic waves down to about 8 km in the volcano in a surface of about 400 km2. This integral dissection work of the seismic physiognomy of a volcanic area (of 16x14 km2), has only once been carried out with these methodologies, in the Vesuvius, and never before using (...)
Are cartoons a motivational element in Physics and Chemistry classes? Can we get to know if the cartoons broadcasted in TV channels are a source of previous ideas and conceptual errors for teenagers?These are some of the many questions posed by José Miguel Vílchez González in his thesis “Physics and Cartoons. A scientific and audiovisual literacy strategy in Secondary Education”, supervised by Professor Francisco Javier Perales Palacios, of the Department of Experimental Sciences of the (...)
