Warming Climates Intensify Carbon Dioxide Given Out By Oceans
2014-06-09 03:23:28

Rising global temperatures could increase the amount of carbon dioxide naturally released by the world's oceans, fueling further climate change, a study suggests.

explaining the Last Glacial Maximum
2014-06-03 05:48:44

A team of MIT scientists has turned to the Southern Ocean in search of an explanation for the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), a period in the Earth's climate history during which the northern continents were covered by ice sheets.

Dryland Ecosystems Emerge As Driver In Global Carbon Cycle
2014-05-22 03:17:36

Dryland ecosystems, which include deserts to dry-shrublands, play a more important role in the global carbon cycle than previously thought. In fact, they have emerged as one of its drivers

How Does Your Garden Glow?

Science is full of serendipity -- moments when discoveries happen by chance or accident while researchers are looking for something else. For example, penicillin was identified when a blue-green mold grew on a Petri dish that had been left open by mistake.

NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 Satellite Arrives At Launch Site
2014-05-02 03:28:08

A NASA spacecraft designed to make precise measurements of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere is at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., to begin final preparations for launch.

Antarctica Was A Balmy 72 Degrees Fahrenheit During The Eocene
2014-04-22 13:07:31

Previous studies have shown that Antarctica was a much warmer continent 40 to 50 million years ago and a new report from a team of American, Dutch and Australian researchers has revealed finer details on the milder temperature that blanketed the region at the time.

Orbiting Carbon Observatory

In July 2014, NASA will launch the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 to study the fate of carbon dioxide worldwide.

long term warming trend
2014-03-11 12:20:13

A new NASA study shows Earth's climate likely will continue to warm during this century on track with previous estimates, despite the recent slowdown in the rate of global warming.

2014-01-27 10:29:16

The tropical carbon cycle has become twice as sensitive to temperature variations over the past 50 years.

Earth’s CO2 And Climate Stabilized By Ancient Forests
2014-01-24 12:38:58

UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilized over the past 24 million years.
