Amazon Inhales More Carbon Than It Emits
2014-03-18 20:28:30

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory A new NASA-led study seven years in the making has confirmed that natural forests in the Amazon remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than they emit, therefore reducing global warming. This finding resolves a long-standing debate about a key component of the overall carbon balance of the Amazon basin. The Amazon's carbon balance is a matter of life and death: living trees take carbon dioxide out of the air as they grow, and dead trees put the...

Molybdenum Disulfide Sheets Exhibit A Significant Advantage Over Graphene
2014-03-13 06:58:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Layers of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a naturally occurring compound in rocks, of just a single atom in thickness may be better than graphene for electronics applications, according to new research from the University of Warsaw. However, the researchers caution that the nature of the phenomena occurring in layered materials are not well understood and still require further research. Graphene is a material built of six-atom carbon...

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,...
