Popular Science: When volcanic ash flew over the Bohemian Massif

Czechs know huge volcano eruptions primarily from disaster movies, but definitely not from their own country. Yet, even here, history was quite explosive. One of the geological mysteries of the Bohemian Massif is a widespread layer of ash fall tuff, called the “bělka” in Czech, preserved in the carboniferous basins of Central and Western Bohemia. But, how did it get there, when exactly, and what kind of volcano could have caused this? A team of Czech specialists from Charles University, the Czech Academy of Sciences, and the Czech Geological Survey decided to finally unravel this mystery, led by Filip Tomek from the Institute of Geology and Paleontology.

Vegetation change study in Science

We expected the biggest changes in vegetation to be at the end of the Ice Age. Instead, we were surprised they were in the last four thousand years," says paleoecologist Petr Kuneš of the Faculty of Science at Charles University. Kuneš was one of a group of experts including fellow Czech Ondřej Mottl whose findings were published recently in the prestigious scientific journal Science.

Popular Science: First fluorescent dye for the imaging of amyloid fibrils

The plaques of amyloid fibrils are the hallmark of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s disease. As our society gets older, these diseases become more widespread, causing immense difficulties not only for patients but also for their close friends and relatives. The selective imaging of amyloid fibrils is therefore crucial for studying the mechanism of their development but has encountered multiple obstacles. A small fluorescent dye developed by scientists from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of Czech Academy of Sciences and the Faculty of Science of Charles University, led by Dr. Pankaj Gaur, could therefore be a new hope for imaging the amyloid fibrils in living cells.

Popular Science: How much food do Czech households waste?

Food waste is a global problem. According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation, UN), 1/3 of the food produced worldwide – 1.2 billion tonnes – is wasted each year. Data provided by the EU indicate that 20% of food in Europe remains unconsumed. Countries around the globe have all agreed on the urgent need to reduce such waste. For example, as part of target 12.3 of the Sustainable development goals (SDGs) programme, member states of the UN have called for per capita global food waste to be halved by 2030. To achieve these goals, detailed monitoring is essential. However, reliable and coherent data are often missing. An analysis by Petra Novákovás (Faculty of Science alumna), which I am going to introduce in this article, should help fill some of these gaps. Svatava Janoušková from the Faculty of Science, Charles university, also collaborated in this research.

Popular Science: Czech polar explorers are ready for the future

Predicting potential future changes in the landscape is based on knowledge of the current state and changes in the past. A group of experts, led by Stephen J. A. Jennings from Masaryk University in Brno, have now finished mapping the inhospitable area of the Ulu Peninsula, which could provide a window into the future development of other areas of the Antarctic Peninsula. Zbyněk Engel from the Department of Physical Geography, Faculty of Science, Charles University, who has been travelling to polar research expeditions since 2009, played a significant part in this research.
