The Diatoms: Applications for the Environmental and Earth Sciences. (Phys.org) —Scientists have found unexpectedly high concentrations of opal, a mineral containing silicate, in marine sediments during the transition periods from ice ages to warm phases. Product Description Diatoms are microscopic algae which are found in virtually every habitat where water is present. But it's not science fiction – many of the needed advances have already been made, and the National Science Foundation just provided a four-year, $2 million grant to help make it a working reality. The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC), one of NASA's nine Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), provides a broad variety of remote-sensing data from several NASA satellites. These ethnographic, geological, and biological case studies successfully demonstrate the application of environmental science toward the resolution of questions related to human behavior in the past.

In theory, and possibly soon in practice, these amazing “We have shown how diatoms can be used to produce semiconductor materials, chitin fibers for biomedical applications, or the lipids needed to make biofuels,” he said.
