  • Up to 460,000 people at risk from unsafe radon exposure in Ireland

     

    May 2017

     

    Around 10% of Ireland’s population is exposed to radon levels that exceed the referenced safe level according to a new ‘risk map’ produced from indoor radon concentration measurements and relevant geological information. Approximately 460,000 individuals may currently be at risk according to researchers from Trinity, who led the work.

  • Ancient meteorite impact sparked long-lived volcanic eruptions on Earth

     

    May 2017

     

    Meteorite impacts can produce more than craters on the Earth – they can also spark volcanic activity that shapes its surface and climate by bringing up material from depth. That is the headline finding of an international team, led by geochemists from Trinity College Dublin, who discovered that large impacts can be followed by intense, long-lived, and explosive volcanic eruptions.

    April 2017

     

    A new report launched by TILDA at Trinity College Dublin and supported by the Road Safety Authority shows that most older adults rely on cars for transport, as opposed to public transport. It details major differences in the use of public transport between Dublin residents and those living in rural Ireland and reports a serious level of dissatisfaction with rural public transport amongst the over 50s living outside Dublin.

  • Unearthed: the cannibal sharks of a forgotten age

     

    August 2016

     

    Scientists have discovered macabre fossil evidence suggesting that 300 million-year-old sharks ate their own young, as fossil poop of adult Orthacanthus sharks contained the tiny teeth of juveniles. These fearsome marine predators used protected coastal lagoons to rear their babies, but it seems they also resorted to cannibalising them when other food sources became scarce.
