SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb.
Scientists made an important step in order to better understand the relationships between vegetation and climate. So-called extremely low-volatility organic compounds, which are produced by plants, could be detected for the first time during field and laboratory experiments in Finland and Germany.
A new study from an international group of scientists illuminates the process by which gas wafting from coniferous trees creates particles that can reflect sunlight or promote cloud formation.
Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. The sun can also drive reactions to create chemical fuels, such as hydrogen that can in turn power cars, trucks and trains.
BATH, England, February 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The SEC's conflict mineral rule requires US-listed companies to disclose whether their products contain certain metals
According to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, wildfires could explain why the Earth was so hot three million years ago.
Air pollution from Asia has been rising for several decades but Hawaii had seemed to escape the ozone pollution that drifts east with the springtime winds. Now a team of researchers has found that shifts in atmospheric circulation explain the trends in Hawaiian ozone pollution.
New research report “Global Pesticide and Agrochemical Market to 2018 - Market Size, Growth, and Forecasts in Over 50 Countries” worked out by MarketSizeInfo.com has been recently published
Researchers Dr. Chris Moore and Dr. Daniel Obrist, from Nevada's Desert Research Institute, have recently discovered an increased level of mercury in Arctic sea ice. The study, published in the journal Nature, also found that the mercury is contaminating sea water below.

Topics include atmospheric chemistry, geochemistry, climate change, marine chemistry, water chemistry, polar chemistry, fire chemistry, astrochemistry, earth and geochemistry, soil and sediment...
Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center on November 3, 1994 at 11:59 AM EST and landed at Edwards AFB on November 14 at 7:33 AM PST. The shuttle orbited 174 times at an altitude of 164 nautical miles at an inclination of 57 degrees and travelled 4.5 million miles. The mission lasted 10 days, 22 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds. This mission further advanced efforts to collect data about sun's energy output, chemical makeup of the Earth's middle atmosphere, and how these factors affect...
Green Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering any aspect of green chemistry. It is published monthly by the Royal Society of Chemistry and was established in 1999 by James Clark (University of York). The editor-in-chief is Sarah Ruthven. The journal covers subjects relating to reducing the environmental impact of chemical substances and fuels by developing alternative and sustainable technologies that are non-toxic to living things and the environment, including: Improved...
Today's soil contamination is a direct result of man-made chemicals or other changes in nature's soil environment. This contamination most commonly occurs from underground storage tanks bursting, use of pesticides, discarding oil and fuel illegally, leakage of dirty surface water, draining of wastes from landfalls and knowingly dumping industrial wastes into the soil. The most widespread chemicals found are petroleum hydrocarbons, solvents, common pesticides, lead and additional heavy metals....
Environmental science is a science that contains a wide range of scientific disciplines. These disciplines are grouped together based on the natural environment which they encompass and interact with. These sciences include physical, chemical, and biological components. Environmental science provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environmental systems. The most common way environmental science is studied is through the work of one individual or small team drawing on the...
