Latest Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere Stories
Scientists have long believed that a continental ice sheet formed more than 90 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous Period, but a new study has found evidence suggesting that this belief is incorrect.
In the ocean near Antarctica, an international research team has solved the mystery of how deep and mid-depth ocean waters are mixed.
Last year was one of the hottest twelve months on record, according to a new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
In a recent report, oceanographer Richard Zeebe examined the long-term climate effects of today's human activity thousands of years into the Earth's future.
A new study, led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, reveals the look of the oceans will change drastically in the future as the coming greenhouse world alters marine food webs and gives certain species advantages over others, if history's closest analog is any indication.
As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change.
Rising temperatures, influenced by natural events such as El Nino, have a corresponding increase in the release of carbon dioxide from tropical forest ecosystems, according to a new study out today.
Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) can reverse the global warming trend and push temperatures back below the global target of 2°C above pre-industrial levels, even if current policies fail and we initially overshoot this target.
Trees are becoming more efficient at using water in response to higher atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, according to new research published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
