More carbon dioxide is released from residential lawns than corn fields according to a new study. And much of the difference can likely be attributed to soil temperature. The data, from researchers at Elizabethtown College, suggest that urban heat islands may be working at smaller scales than previously thought. These findings provide a better understanding of the changes that occur when agricultural lands undergo development and urbanization to support growing urban populations. David...

All Possible Drug-like Chemical Compounds Mapped By Scientists
2013-04-23 09:00:43

Duke University Software builds "library" of millions of small, carbon-based molecules chemists might synthesize. Drug developers may have a new tool to search for more effective medications and new materials. It's a computer algorithm that can model and catalogue the entire set of lightweight, carbon-containing molecules that chemists could feasibly create in a lab. The small-molecule universe has more than 10^60 (that's 1 with 60 zeroes after it) chemical structures. Duke...

Charcoal From Wildfires Enters Waterways And Works Its Way To Oceans
2013-04-20 07:14:14

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online New research claims charcoal created from wildfires does not remain in the soil as previously believed, but is instead transported into the sea by rivers, where it ultimately enters the carbon cycle. That determination was made by an international team of researchers, including Thorsten Dittmar from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology (MPI) in Bremen and Rudolf Jaffé from Florida International...

MIAMI, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An team of researchers, led by Florida International University Chemistry Professor Rudolf Jaffe and Thorsten Dittmar of the German Max Planck Society, has uncovered one of nature's long-kept secrets -- the true fate of charcoal in the world's soils. Knowing the fate of charcoal is critical in helping scientists balance the global carbon budget, which can help understand and mitigate climate change. However, until now, scientists only had...

The True Fate Of Charcoal In The World's Soils Revealed
2013-04-19 08:35:43

National Science Foundation Scientists find surprising new answers in wetlands such as the Everglades Scientists have uncovered one of nature's long-kept secrets--the true fate of charcoal in the world's soils. The ability to determine the fate of charcoal is critical to knowledge of the global carbon budget, which in turn can help understand and mitigate climate change. However, until now, researchers only had scientific guesses about what happens to charcoal once it's...

Volcanic Activity Would Have Helped Mars Sustain Liquid Water
2013-04-09 10:17:31

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study suggests that Earth´s atmosphere is largely the product of carbon dioxide gas moving from the mantle to the surface through volcanic activity; if similar activity were to happen on Mars — the planet would be able to sustain liquid water. According to the study, which appeared in the early online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

Graphite (named by Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1789, from the Greek γραφειν: "to draw/write", for its use in pencils) is one of the allotropes of carbon. Unlike diamond, graphite is a conductor, and can be used, for instance, as the material in the electrodes of an electrical arc lamp. Occurrence Associated minerals include: quartz, calcite, micas, iron meteorites and tourmalines. Notable occurrences include New York and Texas in the USA, Russia, Mexico, Greenland,...
