Latest Atmospheric methane Stories
Derek Lovley's lab at UMass Amherst show for the first time that one of the most abundant methane-producing microorganisms on Earth makes direct electrical connections with another species to produce the gas in a completely unexpected way
While we learned earlier this year that 2012 was the ninth warmest year since 1880, this week we were greeted with news that greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, hit record highs in that same year.
While scientists have known for several years that some mammals became smaller during a period of warming known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, researchers have found a second instance of mammalian “dwarfing” attributable to increasing temperatures.
A new finding using data obtained from NASA's Curiosity rover has revealed that the Red Planet's environment lacks methane.
Cattle contribute to global warming by burping and farting large amounts of greenhouse gases.
Reducing emissions of only soot and methane won't do as much to reduce global warming as some previous research has suggested, according to a new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
A super-charged methane seep has been discovered in the ocean off the coast of New Zealand, and the source seems to be interactions between a unique community of worms and bacteria.
New research findings from the Centre for Permafrost (CENPERM) at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, University of Copenhagen, document that permafrost during thawing may result in a substantial release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and that the future water content in the soil is crucial to predict the effect of permafrost thawing.
