Latest Carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere Stories
Imagine loosening the screw-top of a soda bottle and hearing the carbon dioxide begin to escape.
Meteorologists have determined exactly how much carbon dioxide humans can emit into the atmosphere while ensuring that the earth does not heat up by more than two degrees.
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.
A chain of past natural events may hold lessons for the future.
By examining 800,000-year-old polar ice, scientists increasingly are learning how the climate has changed since the last ice melt and that carbon dioxide has become more abundant in the Earth's atmosphere.
Increasingly, the Earth's climate appears to be more connected than anyone would have imagined.
Scientists have found the possible source of a huge carbon dioxide 'burp' that happened some 18,000 years ago and which helped to end the last ice age.
Potential climate change caused by rising levels of carbon dioxide might be better understood by examining fossil plant remains from millions of 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.
Two studies provide clearer picture of how carbon cycle was dramatically affected long ago.
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
