Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
Extreme weather and climate events such as heavy precipitation, violent storms, heat waves and lengthy droughts cause terrestrial ecosystems to absorb approximately 11 billion tons less carbon dioxide each year.
Reducing emissions of only soot and methane won't do as much to reduce global warming as some previous research has suggested, according to a new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
A super-charged methane seep has been discovered in the ocean off the coast of New Zealand, and the source seems to be interactions between a unique community of worms and bacteria.
Forests have a limited capacity to soak up atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Last year was one of the hottest twelve months on record, according to a new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
In a recent report, oceanographer Richard Zeebe examined the long-term climate effects of today's human activity thousands of years into the Earth's future.
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.
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.
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.
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...
