Latest Geoengineering Stories
An ancient bloom of life that occurred just after the last ice age isn’t what it seemed at first, according to new research in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Researchers suggest a targeted version of the geoengineering technique known as Marine Cloud Brightening - seeding the clouds to cool sea surface temperatures - could give coral a fifty year "breathing space" to recover from acidification and warming.
Garland’s highly reflective Sunburst™ mineral surfacing is now available as a factory-applied option on select membranes, for one-step installation of waterproofing protection and reflective
In a new study, researchers found restricting greenhouse warming to just 50-100 parts per million (ppm) carbon dioxide, or approximately half the increase since the Industrial Revolution, would avoid large-scale reductions in coral reef habitat occurring in the future.
A new study adds another dimension to the role played by plants in curbing global warming by showing that they are also natural aerosols that assist in cloud formation and atmospheric cooling.
The ability of sea spray to form clouds over the ocean is influenced by ocean biology which alters the chemical composition of the spray.
Geoengineering is a controversial and illegal practice that attempts to mitigate the forces of climate change on a grand scale. Many see this attempt to alter global climate via artificial means as a ‘quick fix’ with potential long-term negative effects.
Terraforming -- Terraforming (literally, "Earth-shaping") is the process of modifying a planet, moon or other body to a more habitable atmosphere, temperature or ecology. The term was first used in a science fiction novel, 'Seetee Shock' (1940?) by Jack Williamson, but the actual concept is older than that. An example in fiction is 'First and Last Men' by Olaf Stapledon in which Venus is modified, after a long and destructive war with the original inhabitants, who naturally object to the...
