Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A discovery that was stumbled upon by happenstance could help solve the problem of global warming. According to a new report in the academic journal Catalysis Science & Technology, two researchers at Newcastle University in the U.K. found a nickel catalyst can be used to rapidly and cheaply capture carbon emissions. "We had set out to understand in detail the carbonic acid reaction — which is what happens when CO2...

New Protocol Developed For Measuring Soil Organic Carbon Sequestration
2013-02-01 14:39:04

University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences Increased levels of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), have been associated with the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, cultivation of grasslands, drainage of the land, and land use changes. Concerns about long-term shifts in climate patterns have led scientists to measure soil organic carbon (SOC) in agricultural landscapes and to develop methods to evaluate how changes in tillage...

SR2020 3DProVSP reservoir monitoring images the physical and chemical effects of EOR-CO2 injection on the reservoir--tracking the spread of CO2 inside and potentially outside the reservoir, as well as the redistribution of oil and gas over time. SR2020's high resolution methods and data accuracy can help accelerate and increase recovery, provide insight into well and injectant placement, and reduce the cost of infrastructure and improve financial performance. Bakersfield, California (PRWEB)...

Scientists Analyze Costs And Benefits Of Rock Dissolving Practices
2013-01-22 12:14:08

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Geoengineering is a controversial and illegal practice that attempts to mitigate the forces of climate change on a grand scale. Many see this attempt to alter global climate via artificial means as a ℠quick fix´ with potential long-term negative effects. However, despite the contentious nature of geoengineering, scientists from the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany decided to analyze a ℠rock...
