Latest Greenhouse effect Stories
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.
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.
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.
In a new study, researchers’ analysis of rock samples from the Archean era only deepen the mystery surrounding the origins of life on Earth.
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.
Temperatures are rising four times faster in the Artic than the global average, a new University of Melbourne study shows.
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.
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.
