MIPT’s Laboratory for the Spectroscopy of Planetary Atmospheres has come up with a high-resolution meter to gauge the concentration of gases in the atmosphere with unparalleled precision.

Earth’s CO2 And Climate Stabilized By Ancient Forests
2014-01-24 12:38:58

UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilized over the past 24 million years.

Reversing Climate Change Cannot Be Accomplished Via Geoengineering
2013-12-05 13:59:47

Geoengineering the climate has been suggested as a way to be able to help lessen the impact of climate change, but new research published in Earth System Dynamics says this approach would not likely succeed.

Young Sun Paradox Early Climate

In a new study, researchers’ analysis of rock samples from the Archean era only deepen the mystery surrounding the origins of life on Earth.

Runaway Greenhouse Planet

When a planet absorbs too much solar radiation, its atmosphere reaches a tipping point - overheating, boiling its oceans and filling with steam. This 'runaway greenhouse' effect results is an uninhabitable world much like Venus.

A team of researchers has devised a new form of cooling structure that could remain cool, even when the sun is shining on it.

Arctic Warming Connected To Reduction Of Sea Ice And Increased Global Warming

Temperatures are rising four times faster in the Artic than the global average, a new University of Melbourne study shows.

Image 1 - NOAA Greenhouse Gas Index On The Rise
2011-11-10 10:06:45

NOAA’s updated Annual Greenhouse Gas Index (AGGI), which measures the direct climate influence of many greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, shows a continued steady upward trend that began with the Industrial Revolution of the 1880s.

The mass extinction of marine life in our oceans during prehistoric times is a warning that the Earth will see such an extinction again because of high levels of greenhouse gases.

2010-10-15 16:53:57

Water vapor and clouds are the major contributors to Earth's greenhouse effect, but a new atmosphere-ocean climate modeling study shows that the planet's temperature ultimately depends on the atmospheric level of carbon dioxide.
