European Geosciences Union As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change. A group of German scientists has now come up with an environmentally friendly method that they say could do just that. The technique, dubbed carbon farming, consists in planting trees in arid regions on a large scale to capture CO2. They publish their study today in Earth System...

Carbon capture and storage has been heralded as a new technology for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In an effort to help slow climate change, human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2) is captured at point-source emitters like power stations and sequestered in underground rocks. In porous rocks like sandstone, the CO2 is trapped in tiny spaces or pores, which act like a sponge and soak up the injected fluid. In 2000, one of the first commercial examples of this technology was conducted in...

Paul Comet responds to new research that uses carbon “scrubbing” as a way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 04, 2013 Reducing carbon emissions is a subject that Paul Comet, Houston scientist, is passionate about. He has spent much time researching the topic, following the latest developments, and coming up with his own ideas for reversing climate change. According to a recent article on Phys.org, researchers may have come up with a more effective method to...

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have broken the record for tracking the movement and concentration of carbon dioxide in a geologic formation using the world's deepest Electrical Resistance Tomography (ERT) system. The research provides insight into the effects of geological sequestration to mitigate the impact of greenhouse gases. The team led by LLNL's Charles Carrigan obtained time lapse electrical resistivity images during the injection of more than 1 million tons...

Carbon Found To Leak From Land To Water

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In general, scientists have thought that about half of the carbon emitted by human activities remains in the atmosphere, with the other half being stored in the oceans and on land. A new study, published in Nature Geoscience, suggests that human activity might be increasing the transition of carbon from land to rivers, estuaries and the coastal zones. This indicates that large quantities of anthropogenic carbon might be hidden in...
