Latest Atmospheric methane Stories
Scientists at the University of Calgary have found that methane emission by plants could be a bigger problem in global warming than previously thought.
FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cemtrex, Inc. (OTC: CTEI) announced that it is expanding its marketing activities in Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) for generation of carbon credits. When coal is formed in the mines, so is methane.
Earth's earliest ice age could have been caused by an atmospheric rise in oxygen reacting with methane, a greenhouse gas, a geologist in Maryland said. This singular event had a profound effect on the climate, and also on life, said Alan J.
An analysis of ancient Greenland ice suggests a spike in the greenhouse gas methane about 11,600 years ago originated from wetlands rather than the ocean floor or from permafrost, a finding that is good news according to the University of Colorado at Boulder scientist who led the study.
According to scientists, Greenlandâ€™s icesheet has revealed a store of methane that appears to be more stable that previously thought, easing tensions over a rapid rise in global temperatures.
New research is challenging the recent finding that plants could be a major source of the atmosphere's methane levels.
The common wisdom is that the invention of the steam engine and the advent of the coal-fueled industrial age marked the beginning of human influence on global climate.
On Wednesday, researchers said the arctic tundra emits the same amount of methane in winter as in the warmer months, a surprising finding that bolsters understanding of how greenhouse gases interact with nature.
The amount of methane in Earth's atmosphere shot up in 2007, bringing to an end approximately a decade in which atmospheric levels of the potent greenhouse gas were essentially stable.
Carbon dioxide is only one of the greenhouse gases that make scientists stay up at night. Methane and nitrogen trifluoride are increasing which makes scientists worry about increasing global warming.
