[ Watch The Video: Atmospheric General Circulation Changes Due To Increased Greenhouse Gases ] Carol Rasmussen, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory If we had a second Earth, we could experiment with its atmosphere to see how increased levels of greenhouse gases would change it, without the risks that come with performing such an experiment. Since we don’t, scientists use global climate models. In the virtual Earths of the models, interlocking mathematical equations take the place...

Los Alamos National Laboratory The study is the first to show that space-based techniques can successfully verify international regulations on fossil energy emissions. Air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from two coal-fired power plants in the Four Corners area of northwest New Mexico, the largest point source of pollution in America, were measured remotely by a Los Alamos National Laboratory team. Led by Laboratory senior scientist Manvendra Dubey, the study is the first to...

Abundant Shale Gas Will Not Likely Alter Climate Predictions
2014-05-15 08:27:49

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Climatologists and energy scientists know that replacing higher-emission energy sources with natural gas will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. According to a new study from Duke University, however, even without policies specifically designed to reduce greenhouse gases, abundant shale gas will not cause a substantial change in total emissions. The study was published in a recent issue of Environmental Science and Technology. The...

Examining Fate Of Methane Following The Deepwater Horizon Spill
2014-05-12 03:18:56

By James Hataway, University of Georgia The 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout discharged roughly five million barrels of oil and up to 500,000 metric tonnes of natural gas into Gulf of Mexico offshore waters over a period of 84 days. In the face of a seemingly insurmountable cleanup effort, many were relieved by reports following the disaster that naturally-occurring microbes had consumed much of the gas and oil. Now, a team of researchers led by University of Georgia marine scientists...

Leaks From Oil And Gas Operations Confirmed By Airborne Measurements

University of Colorado at Boulder CIRES, NOAA study finds more methane, ozone precursors and benzene than estimated by regulators During two days of intensive airborne measurements, oil and gas operations in Colorado's Front Range leaked nearly three times as much methane, a greenhouse gas, as predicted based on inventory estimates, and seven times as much benzene, a regulated air toxic. Emissions of other chemicals that contribute to summertime ozone pollution were about twice as high...

Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...

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...
