Even small increases in area burned could have significant impacts on carbon storage
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.
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.
Cutting edge carbon capture technology is having quite the year so far as UK scientists said they have developed a "metal-organic framework" that works like a sponge, absorbing carbon dioxide from high pressure emissions.
This week new research was published that points to seagrasses as a solution to climate change. Seagrass can store up to twice the carbon of the world’s terrestrial forests.
Scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) have conducted a new study to measure levels of carbon at various depths in the Arctic Ocean.
A materials scientist at Michigan Technological University has discovered a chemical reaction that not only eats up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, it also creates something useful.
A group of researchers at MIT, led by Ruben Juanes, published a study this week that showed deep saline aquifers in the United States are capable of storing a century’s worth of carbon dioxide produced by the nation’s coal or gas fueled power plants.
Canada defines itself as a nation that stretches from coast to coast to coast.
Fifteen years of studying two experimental wetlands has convinced Bill Mitsch that turning the reins over to Mother Nature makes the most sense when it comes to this area of ecological restoration.
