Each time it rains, runoff carries an earthy tea steeped from leaf litter, crop residue, soil, and other organic materials into the storm drains and streams that feed Chesapeake Bay.
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.
The water quality of lakes and coastal systems will be altered if hurricanes intensify in a warming world
Recently, an international collaboration headed by Tom Battin from the Department of Limnology at the University of Vienna looked at an little-studied example of a carbon cycle. His team’s task was to explore and determine the role of Alpine glaciers in the carbon-cycling process. Glaciers are, in effect, nature’s freezers. Items that were deposited into the glaciers over several millennia became locked in a frozen tomb. And it is only on account of unprecedentedly rapid glacial melt...
A new study by researchers at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) shows that jellyfish are more than a nuisance to bathers and boaters, drastically altering marine food webs by shunting food energy from fish toward bacteria.
Researchers have found compelling evidence for an extensive biological community living in porous rock deep beneath the seafloor.
Specific land management practices in agricultural watersheds, such as manure application, can affect carbon losses, according to a study in the Journal of Environmental Quality.
The Faculty of Biosciences at the University of Helsinki includes a project focusing on the ten major rivers in the world. Academy Research Fellow Anssi VÃ¤hÃ¤taloâ€™s group addresses the journey of riverine organic to the oceans and in particular the photochemical decomposition of organic carbon caused by sunlight.
