Swiss National Science Foundation further intensifies its open access efforts

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) has set the goal to reach 100% open access for SNSF funded publications by 2020. However, the actual percentage is still far away from that mark. Therefore, the SNSF has decided to monitor the publication outcome of SNSF projects closer in future. Read more

Research Collection: statistics May 2019

The most downloaded items from May are about camels, glaciers and the Gulf region. The number of downloads is still on the rise as is the open access proportion in 2019. The article with the highest Altmetric Score is about the climate’s influence on the biogeography of forest-tree symbioses. Read more

  2. Detection of Hazardous Ground Movements with Instantaneous Velocity Estimates by GNSS 

    Hohensinn, Roland (2019)
    The motivation for this work is to rapidly assess whether a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) station is moving hazardously or not. The GNSS stations of interest are located on moving land masses – like rock glaciers – in alpine regions in Switzerland. The purpose is to support real-time natural hazard early warning systems with information on ground movements. One of the main problems with geodetic high-precision GNSS positioning ...

  3. Natural hypothalamic circuit dynamics underlying object memorization 

    Kosse, Christin; Burdakov, Denis (2019)
    Nature Communications
    Brain signals that govern memory formation remain incompletely identified. The hypothalamus is implicated in memory disorders, but how its rapidly changing activity shapes memorization is unknown. During encounters with objects, hypothalamic melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) neurons emit brief signals that reflect object novelty. Here we show that targeted optogenetic silencing of these signals, performed selectively during the initial ...

  5. Ecohydrological sensitivity to climatic variables: dissecting the water tower of Europe 

    Mastrotheodoros, Theodoros (2019)
    The water balance in mountain regions describes the relations between precipitation, snow accumulation and melt, evapotranspiration and soil moisture and determines the availability of water for runoff in downstream areas. Climate change is affecting the water budget of mountains at a fast pace and it has thus become a priority for hydrologists to quantify the vulnerability of each hydrological component to climate change, in order to ...
