By Carol Rasmussen, NASA Earth Science News Team Simply by breathing, humans have played a small part in the planet-wide balancing act called the carbon cycle throughout our existence. However, in the last few hundred years, we have taken a larger role. Our activities, such as fossil fuel burning and deforestation, are pushing the cycle out of its natural balance, adding more and more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Natural processes are working hard to keep the carbon cycle in...

Mountainous Ecosystems Acted Like A Thermostat For Millions Of Years
2014-02-06 14:21:46

University of Oxford For the first time, scientists have discovered how tree roots in the mountains may play an important role in controlling long-term global temperatures. Researchers from Oxford and Sheffield Universities have found that temperatures affect the thickness of the leaf litter and organic soil layers, as well as the rate at which the tree roots grow. In a warmer world, this means that tree roots are more likely to grow into the mineral layer of the soil, breaking down rock...

The tropical carbon cycle has become twice as sensitive to temperature variations over the past 50 years, new research has revealed. The research shows that a one degree rise in tropical temperature leads to around two billion extra tonnes of carbon being released per year into the atmosphere from tropical ecosystems, compared with the same tropical warming in the 1960s and 1970s. Professor Pierre Friedlingstein and Professor Peter Cox, from the University of Exeter, collaborated with...

Do Faster-Growing Old Trees Translate To More Carbon Storage?
2014-01-16 07:03:46

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Contrary to the commonly held belief that trees become unproductive as they grow older, new research appearing in the journal Nature demonstrates that most of them experience increases in their growth rates and store more carbon as they age. As part of their research, the study authors reviewed records from studies on six continents, including measurements from over 650,000 trees belonging to 403 tropical and temperate species....

Rivers, Streams Release Far More Carbon Dioxide Than Do Lakes: Study
2013-12-10 06:51:50

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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. The findings of this international study, which included the University of Waterloo, have been published in the journal Nature. "Identifying the sources and amounts of carbon dioxide released from continental water sources has been a gap in understanding the carbon...

Sea-Level Rise Will Continue To Fuel Destructive Coastal Flooding
2013-12-05 10:26:23

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Two new literature review studies, published in Nature, reveal changing coastal ocean functions. The first study, "Coastal flooding by tropical cyclones and sea-level rise," reveals that the clamor about whether climate change will cause increasingly destructive tropical storms may be overshadowing a more unrelenting threat to coastal property: sea-level rise. Jonathan D. Woodruff, an assistant professor of sedimentology and...
