Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
Scientists have long believed that a continental ice sheet formed more than 90 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous Period, but a new study has found evidence suggesting that this belief is incorrect.
In the ocean near Antarctica, an international research team has solved the mystery of how deep and mid-depth ocean waters are mixed.
Acidification of the Arctic Ocean is occurring faster than projected according to new findings published in the journal PLoS One.
An ESA report says satellite observations indicate that carbon dioxide in our atmosphere continues to increase, despite global efforts to curb emissions.
A year-long experiment on tiny ocean organisms called coccolithophores suggests that the single-celled algae may still be able to grow their calcified shells even as oceans grow warmer and more acidic in Earth's near future.
A new report published in Nature Climate Change indicates that the impacts of more acidic oceans will vary from one species to the next.
University of Plymouth A study into marine life around an underwater volcanic vent in the Mediterranean, might hold the key to understanding how some species will be able to survive in increasingly acidic sea water should anthropogenic climate change continue. Researchers have discovered that some species of polychaete worms are able to modify their metabolic rates to better cope with and thrive in waters high in carbon dioxide (CO2), which is otherwise poisonous to other, often...
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.
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...
