new study documents why oysters appear so sensitive to increasing acidity, but also offers some hope for the future.

Arctic Permafrost Melts And Releases Greenhouse Gases
2013-06-11 10:18:54

Rising Arctic temperatures are causing permafrost soils to thaw at unprecedented rates, and NASA scientists are currently looking into just how much greenhouse gas is being released through soil decomposition.

Carbon Found To Leak From Land To Water
2013-06-11 09:35:26

A new study, published in Nature Geoscience, suggests that human activity might be increasing the transition of carbon from land to rivers, estuaries and the coastal zones. This indicates that large quantities of anthropogenic carbon might be hidden in previously unconsidered regions.

Scientists have long suspected that a flourishing of green foliage around the globe, observed since the early 1980s in satellite data, springs at least in part from the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere.

New CO2 Removal Technique Produces Green Fuel, Offsets Ocean Acidification
2013-05-29 10:31:52

A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists. The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.

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...
