Monogenetic volcanoes 🌋 are those that erupt once—sometimes for years—then die. The U.S. Southwest is scarred from past eruptions. #NSFfunded volcanologists led by @UBuffalo are working to understand any future risks for the region.

The @NSF has always had a proud history of global collaboration but @DrPanch stresses importance of institute-level partnerships between counties - both bilateral and multilateral - bringing together multiple geographies to find more creative/applicable solutions #caselecture21

Happy #BlackHoleFriday! This simulated video shows what a #blackhole system would look like up close. We haven’t seen one with our own eyes—yet—since our Milky Way’s central supermassive black hole is over 25,000 light-years away. 📹: Chael, Wielgus, Palumbo, Johnson, Bouman

#NSFfunded scientists @LehighU trained artificial neural networks to spot symmetry, patterns & trends. This could help us learn more about the complex structure & dynamics of materials, increase the efficiency of experiments & accelerate research.

Global supply chains keep society humming, making sure manufacturers have what they need to get products like medicines, computer chips or #Christmas toys to market. See how NSF is leading efforts to bolster legal supply networks & break illicit ones.
