Extreme Weather Adds To Warming
2013-08-15 05:05:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Extreme weather and climate events such as heavy precipitation, violent storms, heat waves and lengthy droughts cause terrestrial ecosystems to absorb approximately 11 billion tons less carbon dioxide each year, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Nature. That is equivalent to approximately one-third of global CO2 emissions each year, according to an international team of researchers led by...

By Fall 2013, PCOR and IOGCC will publish its latest report that focuses on liability issues related to the storage of carbon in geologic formations that should be managed by states and provinces. Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) August 14, 2013 The Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission’s (IOGCC) Carbon Geologic Storage (CGS) Task Force recently met in Denver, Colorado to begin finalizing work that began in July 2012 that focuses on liability issues related to the storage of carbon in...

Corals can survive the early stages of their development even under the tough conditions that rising carbon emissions will impose on them says a new study from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. Globally, ocean acidification due to the burning of fossil fuels remains a major concern and scientists say it could have severe consequences for the health of adult corals, however, the evidence for negative effects on the early life stages of corals is less clear cut. Dr...

Worm Causing Methane Release Ocean Bed
2013-08-13 08:36:26

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A super-charged methane seep has been discovered in the ocean off the coast of New Zealand. The seep has created its own unique food web, resulting in elevated amounts of methane escaping from the ocean floor into the water column, according to scientists at Oregon State University. Methane is a greenhouse gas 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide at warming our atmosphere. Most of the methane in the seep is likely consumed by...

Forests have a limited capacity to soak up atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study from Northern Arizona University. The study, available online in the journal New Phytologist, aimed to explore how rising atmospheric carbon dioxide could alter the carbon and nitrogen content of ecosystems. By performing tests on subtropical woodland plots over an 11-year period, the researchers found that ecosystem carbon uptake was not significantly increased by the high CO2...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Last year was one of the hottest twelve months on record, according to a new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that analyzed global temperatures and climate trends. The US government agency's report was assembled by over 380 scientists from 52 countries. In addition to analyzing temperature data, the annual report also gave the status of other global climate indicators and significant weather...

Aquascaping
2013-04-02 10:31:02

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
2013-04-01 10:32:20

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
2004-10-19 04:45:44

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...
