A University study found that the location of the boundary between snow-covered ice and bare ice is the leading factor determining icemelt in Greenland, which is the largest contributor to global sea level rise.

When studying tetrahedral nanoparticles, Chen’s team discovered that the building blocks  “self-assembled” into quasicrystalline structure.
