Many research challenges today require interdisciplinary teams with strong foundations in discipline-based research. The combination of expertise from numerous disciplines leads to novel approaches to resolving specific scientific problems. Many of the intellectual breakthroughs of modern times were obtained by crossing disciplinary boundaries and many of society's major problems, such as environmental issues and healthcare, require integrated approaches from different disciplines. Cardiff School of Physics and Astronomy strongly supports interdisciplinary research. Scientists from across the School are making use of their core skills to address problems in a number of subject areas, including the humanities, social sciences, biological sciences and music.

Alberta Wild Fires Monitored With Earth Observation Satellites May 18, 2011 - Several large wildfires raged in northern Alberta, Canada. The fires forced some energy and transportation companies to suspend operations. Multiple petroleum companies suspended drilling in the region and moved their employees to safety. Satellite Imagery of Flooding Along the Richelieu River: CSA-NASA Partnership May 2011 - Within the framework of the international Committee on Satellite Earth Observation (CEOS), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is collaborating with NASA on various projects helping to prevent, manage and respond to natural disasters. This partnership offers the opportunity for CSA and NASA to share Earth Observation (EO) data acquired by several Canadian and American satellites for scientific and operational purposes.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory has several state-of-the-art research facilities and laboratories. These facilities help enable our scientists, technologists, and engineers to conduct their research, build new instruments, and conduct experiments. This area contains information on select facilities, what tasks they perform, what projects they support, and who can be contacted for additional information.

CDI holding Scientific Symposium April 24 The Children's Discovery Institute will hold a Scientific Symposium on April 24 featuring clinical and basic research on environmental and genetic influences on prenatal development and maternal-fetal health.
A Trusted Community-Governed Archive Our Mission CLOCKSS ( Controlled LOCKSS) is a not for profit joint venture between the world’s leading academic publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.
Smaller Larger The Forefront of "Bench to Bedside" Research A prodigious and internationally respected enterprise, the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center fosters relationships among laboratory researchers and between basic science investigators and clinicians, accelerating work both in the labs and in the novel therapies we are able to bring to the bedside. Amid a scientific climate in which revolutionary advances are occurring at an amazing pace - from the sequencing of the human genome to breakthrough discoveries in the molecular bases of common diseases and the creation of an almost unlimited number of sophisticated new technologies - BIDMC has successfully positioned itself to take full advantage of these opportunities.
