Latest Carbon sequestration Stories
Using a fleet of robotic floats, a team of British and Australian scientists have uncovered the mechanism in the Southern Ocean that sequesters around 40 percent of the world’s carbon emissions.
Western North America was plagued by a seemingly unending drought from 2000 to 2004 that left forests parched, riverbeds dry and, according to scientists, was the strongest such drought in 800 years, and could be a sign of a new “normal” standard for decades to come.
Although their development and implementation can be costly, techniques to remove and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere may become increasingly important as the planet potentially shifts into permanently warmer state, according to a paper about to be published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Underappreciated player in carbon storage should be included in global change models, researcher says
Carbon stored in Arctic tundra could be released into the atmosphere by new trees growing in the warmer region, exacerbating climate change, scientists have revealed.
Tiny microbes are at the heart of a novel agricultural technique to manage harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
