New research reveals that hurricanes not only cause visible destruction on land but also have a profound impact on the oceans. The study demonstrates that hurricanes push heat deep into the ocean, storing it for extended periods and affecting regions far from the storm. While it’s known that hurricanes derive their energy from warm sea surface temperatures, this study uncovers that they also enhance the ocean’s ability to absorb and retain heat, leading to far-reaching consequences. Underwater waves generated by hurricanes transport heat four times deeper than mere mixing, allowing it to be transported thousands of miles by deep sea currents. This process can influence climate patterns globally, impacting ecosystems and potentially mitigating climate change. The findings emphasize the interconnectedness of hurricanes, ocean heat, and Earth’s climate.
The first successful double lung transplant in India has been performed at Yashoda Hospitals, Secunderabad, saving a 23-year-old man from paraquat poisoning and pulmonary fibrosis. This is the fourth successful and rare double lung transplant case in the world and the first reported case of survival from this condition in India. The patient’s case was […]
A groundbreaking clinical trial presented at the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) conference in Chicago has revealed that a pill called osimertinib, marketed as Tagrisso, can significantly reduce the risk of death from a specific type of lung cancer. The trial involved over 680 participants who had undergone surgery to remove the tumor and […]
