Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
The density of pores that allow plants to breathe has dwindled by 34 percent.
Methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas.
The nearly 200,000 tons of methane released into the Gulf of Mexico during last year's Deepwater Horizon oil spill were ingested by microbes in just four months.
An international, NOAA-led research team took a significant step forward in understanding the atmosphereâ€™s ability to cleanse itself of air pollutants and some other gases, except carbon dioxide.
An international team of scientists has released data indicating that greenhouse gas uptake by continents is less than previously thought because of methane emissions from freshwater areas.
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, Dec.
It sounds a bit like spinning straw into gold, but novel metal catalysts may be able to turn greenhouse gases like methane and carbon dioxide into liquid fuels without producing more carbon waste in the process.
A new analysis of fossilized grass-pollen grains deposited on ancient European lake and sea bottoms 16-35 million years ago reveals that C4 grasses evolved earlier than previously thought.
Leaks from carbon dioxide injected deep underground to help fight climate change could bubble up into drinking water aquifers near the surface, driving up levels of contaminants in the water tenfold or more in some places.
A team of researchers are planning to try and help dairy farmers cut greenhouse gas emissions like methane.
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...
