Latest Carbon cycle Stories
A new study, involving academics at the University of Sheffield, has accurately measured for the first time the current carbon cycles in the world.
New data on photosynthesis and respiration will improve models, researchers say.
With carbon dioxide in the atmosphere approaching alarming levels, even halting emissions altogether may not be enough to avert catastrophic climate change.
A NASA-led research team has expanded the growing global armada of remote sensing satellites capable of studying carbon dioxide, the leading greenhouse gas driving changes in Earth's climate.
Numerous studies are documenting the growing effects of climate change, carbon dioxide, pollution and other human-related phenomena on the world's oceans.
Scientists review the benefits and tradeoffs of current methods in forest carbon storage.
Potential climate change caused by rising levels of carbon dioxide might be better understood by examining fossil plant remains from millions of years ago.
For insight into what can happen when the Earth's carbon cycle is altered -- a cause and consequence of climate change -- scientists can look to an event that occurred some 720 million years ago.
The physiology of microbes living underground could determine the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from soils on a warmer Earth, according to a study published online this week in Nature Geoscience.
In dark, rich soils on every continent, microbes dealing with the effects of climate change aren't accelerating global warming the way scientists had predicted, a study by researchers at the University of California at Irvine, Colorado State University and Yale University shows.
