Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
Scientists at the University of East Anglia have found two new chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and one new hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) in the atmosphere.
Some 56 million years ago, a massive pulse of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere sent global temperatures soaring. In the oceans, carbonate sediments dissolved, some organisms went extinct and others evolved.
A team of MIT scientists has turned to the Southern Ocean in search of an explanation for the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), a period in the Earth's climate history during which the northern continents were covered by ice sheets.
SAN FRANCISCO and SEATTLE, June 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- EOS Climate and JACO Environmental announced today that they have completed integration of EOS Climate's Refrigerant Asset System(TM)
Dryland ecosystems, which include deserts to dry-shrublands, play a more important role in the global carbon cycle than previously thought. In fact, they have emerged as one of its drivers
During two days of intensive airborne measurements, oil and gas operations in Colorado's Front Range leaked nearly three times as much methane, a greenhouse gas, as predicted based on inventory estimates, and seven times as much benzene, a regulated air toxic.
Grains, legumes and other crops that provide a large percentage of the world with most of their dietary zinc and iron will have dramatically reduced concentrations of those nutrients by 2050 due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Science is full of serendipity -- moments when discoveries happen by chance or accident while researchers are looking for something else. For example, penicillin was identified when a blue-green mold grew on a Petri dish that had been left open by mistake.
A NASA spacecraft designed to make precise measurements of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere is at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., to begin final preparations for launch.
WASHINGTON, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A NASA spacecraft designed to make precise measurements of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere is at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif.,
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...
