New invention measures glacier water in the Arctic Ocean

Engineers from Aarhus University have developed a device that makes it possible to collect water samples from the Arctic Ocean at depths of 300 metres. This will help climate researchers acquire new knowledge about how the ice in the northern hemisphere is melting and what happens when it mixes with the salty seawater

"Mathematics is the best language we have to describe nature"

Marcelo Dias is a newly appointed associate professor at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University. He researches into mechanical metamaterials and soft matter physics and he has a penchant for slightly more unconventional areas within engineering science, such as the wondrous patterns of nature.
