Latest Carbon dioxide Stories
For the first time, scientists have discovered how tree roots in the mountains may play an important role in controlling long-term global temperatures.
According to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, wildfires could explain why the Earth was so hot three million years ago.
C40 cities deliver on climate action, nearly doubling reported activities compared to 2011 and proving C40's collaborative, global model is working JOHANNESBURG, Feb.
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report concludes that HFO-1234yf has a global warming potential that is less than 1 MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Feb.
University of Delaware researchers have found a way to convert greenhouse gases into useful chemicals. They have developed a selective catalyst that is able to electrochemically convert carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide with 92 percent efficiency.
LOS ANGELES, Jan.
More long-term research is necessary for an accurate determination of how marine species will cope with increasing ocean acidification, according to new research.
The tropical carbon cycle has become twice as sensitive to temperature variations over the past 50 years.
Safety Gas Detection are pleased to announce a significant new contract.
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.
Aquascaping is the art of arranging aquatic plants along with rocks, cavework, stones, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium. Aquascape designs incorporate numerous distinctive styles. Usually, an aquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it’s possible to produce an aquascape with solely plants, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants. Even though the main goal of aquascaping is to construct an artful underwater landscape, the technical...
Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...
Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
