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...

Forest Soil Traps More Carbon Than Thought
2013-04-01 14:02:36

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The planting and expansion of forests not only allows for the trapping of carbon in the trees themselves, it also fosters carbon absorption in the soil where the trees are rooted. Previous studies have shown that more carbon is sequestered in forest soils that in the trees, but according to new research in“¯the“¯Soil Science Society of America Journal, newly forested lands show a marked increase in carbon...

Model Shows How Carbon Escapes From Deep Earth To Surface
2013-03-19 11:46:54

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Computer simulations of water under extreme pressure reveals how carbon might one day be recycled from hundreds of miles below the surface of the Earth, according to researchers at the University of California, Davis and Johns Hopkins University. The cycling of carbon through the oceans, the atmosphere and the shallow crust of the Earth has been intensively studied, but relatively little is known about what happens to carbon deep...

Earth’s Oxygen Poor Oceans Challenged Early Evolution Of Life
2013-03-19 08:59:17

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international research group led by biogeochemists at the University of California, Riverside has filled a billion-year gap in our understanding of conditions in the early ocean during a critical time in the history of life on Earth. There is a general consensus in the scientific community currently that appreciable levels of oxygen first accumulated in the atmosphere around 2.4 to 2.3 billion years ago and that the build-up of...

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,...
