Resilience In Shelled Plants Exposed To Ocean Acidification Found By Scientists
2013-04-15 11:35:10

Marine scientists have long understood the detrimental effect of fossil fuel emissions on marine ecosystems.

Volcanic Activity Would Have Helped Mars Sustain Liquid Water
2013-04-09 10:17:31

A new study suggests that Earth’s atmosphere is largely the product of carbon dioxide gas moving from the mantle to the surface through volcanic activity; if similar activity were to happen on Mars – the planet would be able to sustain liquid water.

Habitat Changes Caused Turtle Collapse 71 Million Years Ago
2013-03-15 15:16:49

About 71-million-years ago, turtles disappeared from Alberta's Drumheller area, and scientists have been blaming dramatic climate change as the culprit. Now, a new theory published in the journal Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology suggests the real reason was because of habitat changes.

First Evidence Of Life Deep Under Oceanic Crust Realized
2013-03-15 12:56:53

Researchers on board the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program's research vessel JOIDES Resolution drilled a water depth of 1.5 miles and hundreds of feet of sediment into the oceanic crust off the west coast of North America. Scientists studying these returned samples have found the first direct evidence of life deep within these samples.

After more than 10 years' work, scientists at the University of Granada have a developed a carbon gel that enables CO2 to be turned into hydrocarbons by electro-catalytic transformation.

MOF Solar Sponge Absorbs Carbon Dioxide

Emissions from coal power stations could be drastically reduced by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight.

Study Measures Vulnerability Of Earth’s Lungs
2013-02-07 09:46:02

A new study indicates that yearly variations in climate can cause the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed and released by rainforests – the Earth's "lungs" – to vary considerably.

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...
