Oceans May Change Drastically In The Future
2013-08-06 05:37:31

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study, led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, reveals the look of the oceans will change drastically in the future as the coming greenhouse world alters marine food webs and gives certain species advantages over others, if history's closest analog is any indication. Richard Norris, paleobiologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, worked with an international team of scientists to show the ancient...

Could Planting Trees In The Desert Take The Edge Off Climate Change?
2013-07-31 12:51:58

European Geosciences Union As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change. A group of German scientists has now come up with an environmentally friendly method that they say could do just that. The technique, dubbed carbon farming, consists in planting trees in arid regions on a large scale to capture CO2. They publish their study today in Earth System...

Variations In Earth’s Carbon Dioxide Levels Regulated By Tropical Ecosystems
2013-07-23 13:25:45

CSIRO Rising temperatures, influenced by natural events such as El Nino, have a corresponding increase in the release of carbon dioxide from tropical forest ecosystems, according to a new study out today. The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that a temperature anomaly of just 1 degree C (in near surface air temperatures in the tropics) leads to a 3.5-Petagram (billion tonnes of carbon) anomaly in the annual CO2 growth rate, on...

Trees Use Water More Efficiently Due To CO2 Rise
2013-07-11 08:01:38

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Trees are becoming more efficient at using water in response to higher atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, according to new research published Wednesday in the journal Nature. In the study, researchers including Dave Hollinger from the US Forest Service's Northern Research Station (NRS) and Trevor Keenan of Harvard University analyzed direct, long-term measurements of whole-ecosystem carbon and water exchange. According to...

Researchers find that a changing atmosphere affects how much water trees require Spurred by increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, forests over the last two decades have become dramatically more efficient in how they use water, a Harvard study has found. Studies have long predicted that plants would begin to use water more efficiently as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels rose. A research team led by Research Associate Trevor Keenan and Assistant Professor of Organismic and...

Early Earth Relied On Carbon To Keep Warm Enough For Life
2013-07-10 13:58:57

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online University of Colorado Boulder researchers have figured out how early Earth was warm enough to support life when the sun was 20 per cent dimmer than today. A new study determined that all that may have been required to sustain liquid water and primitive life on Earth during the Archean eon, 2.8 billion years ago, were the reasonable atmospheric carbon dioxide amounts believed to be present at the time and a little bit of methane....

University of Adelaide researchers have developed a new nanomaterial that could help reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power stations. The new nanomaterial, described in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, efficiently separates the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from nitrogen, the other significant component of the waste gas released by coal-fired power stations. This would allow the carbon dioxide to be separated before being stored, rather than released to the...

Paul Comet responds to new research that uses carbon “scrubbing” as a way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 04, 2013 Reducing carbon emissions is a subject that Paul Comet, Houston scientist, is passionate about. He has spent much time researching the topic, following the latest developments, and coming up with his own ideas for reversing climate change. According to a recent article on Phys.org, researchers may have come up with a more effective method to...

Earth's Atmosphere
2004-10-19 04:45:44

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...
