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.

3 billion-year-old Rocks Contain Microfossils Of Plankton
2013-06-06 21:18:25

Spindle-shaped inclusions in 3 billion-year-old rocks are microfossils of plankton that probably inhabited the oceans around the globe during that time, according to an international team of researchers.

Elevated Carbon Dioxide Is making Arid Regions Greener
2013-05-31 11:25:37

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.

Experts To Track Big City Carbon Footprints
2013-05-13 04:38:01

Scientists from across the globe are joining forces to track the carbon footprints of some of the world’s largest cities, hoping to determine whether or not emissions standards in various regions are being met.

Revised Estimates Show CO2 Levels Had Not Actually Surpassed 400ppm
2013-05-13 13:30:18

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in human history, according to data released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Studying Mystery Of 'Eternal Flames'
2013-05-09 10:52:58

"Eternal flames" fueled by hydrocarbon gas could shine a light on the presence of natural gas in underground rock layers and conditions that let it seep to the surface, according to research by geologists at the Department of Geological Sciences and the Indiana Geological Survey at Indiana University Bloomington.

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...
