Latest Carbon dioxide Stories
Contrary to common belief, rivers and streams release carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere at a rate five times greater than the world's lakes and reservoirs combined, according to a study published in the journal Nature.
Can an abandoned mine help with the fight against global warming? Researchers from Stanford University think so. They have been using an abandoned mine to gain new insights on how to permanently entomb greenhouse gas emissions inside the Earth.
Reducing our impact on the climate by reducing our carbon dioxide (CO2) impact. Marcy, NY (PRWEB) December 06, 2013 Mountainside Medical Equipment is
Scientists from the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will present a variety of their research at the 2013 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting
Two new review studies published in the journal Nature reveal how a changing climate will impact coastal habitat, including the destructive forces of coastal flooding due to rising sea levels.
A new research study combining marine physiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and behavioral psychology has revealed a surprising outcome from increases of carbon dioxide uptake in the oceans: anxious fish.
Tiny crustaceans, known as copepods, live just beneath the surface of the ocean. A research expedition to the Arctic, part of the Caitlin Arctic Survey, found that these tiny animals are more likely to battle for survival if ocean acidity continues to rise.
Researchers have reportedly developed a novel chemical system that uses inexpensive and easy-to-fabricate carbon-based nanofiber materials that could prove promising in the development of synthetic gasoline.
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...
