Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A discovery that was stumbled upon by happenstance could help solve the problem of global warming. According to a new report in the academic journal Catalysis Science & Technology, two researchers at Newcastle University in the U.K. found a nickel catalyst can be used to rapidly and cheaply capture carbon emissions. "We had set out to understand in detail the carbonic acid reaction — which is what happens when CO2...

Ocean Acidification Threatens Antarctic Marine Wildlife

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers has uncovered the first evidence that marine creatures living in the Antarctic region are being affected by ocean acidification. That evidence was discovered in 2008, when researchers from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), the University of East Anglia (UEA), the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) observed that the shells...

An international research team, with Spanish participation, has discovered a new species of mollusk, Polyconites hadriani, in various parts of the Iberian Peninsula. The researchers say this species, which is the oldest in its genus, adapted to the acidification of the oceans that took place while it was in existence. This process could now determine the evolution of modern marine systems. The new species Polyconites hadriani, which was discovered in 2007, has been crowned the oldest in the...

Aragonite is a polymorph of the mineral calcite, both having the chemical composition CaCO3. Its structure differs from calcite and leads to a different crystal shape, an orthorhombic system with acicular crystals. By repeated twinning pseudo-hexagonal forms result. It may be columnar or fibrous, occasionally in branching stalactitic forms called flos-ferri (flowers of iron) from their association with the ores at the Carthinian iron mines. The type location for aragonite is Molina de...

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed of the mineral calcite (calcium carbonate). The primary source of this calcite is usually marine organisms. These organisms secrete shells that settle out of the water column and are deposited on ocean floors as pelagic ooze (see lysocline for information on calcite dissolution). Secondary calcite may also be deposited by supersaturated meteoric waters (groundwater that precipitates the material in caves). This produces speleothems such as stalagmites...
