Mass Extinction During The Great Dying Caused By Microbial Methane
2014-04-01 11:49:56

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Over 250 million years ago a mysterious event dubbed the Great Dying wiped out 90 percent of all species on Earth. Scientists have debated the culprit behind this mass extinction event for years, and a new study from MIT researchers has concluded that countless, tiny microbes released catastrophic amounts of methane into the atmosphere – choking off species that could not adapt. Previous research has fingered raging volcanoes...

Climate Change Slowing Down Deep Ocean Conveyor Belt
2014-03-24 08:42:04

Katherine Unger Baillie, University of Pennsylvania Far beneath the surface of the ocean, deep currents act as conveyer belts, channeling heat, carbon, oxygen and nutrients around the globe. A new study by the University of Pennsylvania’s Irina Marinov and Raffaele Bernardello and colleagues from McGill University has found that recent climate change may be acting to slow down one of these conveyer belts, with potentially serious consequences for the future of the planet’s climate....

emission and transport of dust and other important aerosols to the Southern Ocean on Dec. 30, 2006

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In a region of the Southern Ocean, iron fertilization caused plankton to thrive during the last ice age, according to a new study from Princeton University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. The findings, published in Science, confirm a longstanding theory that wind-borne dust carried iron to this region of the Antarctic. This iron dust drove plankton growth and eventually led to the removal of carbon dioxide...

Global Warming Could Increase Methane Emissions From Freshwater Ecosystems
2014-03-19 17:22:42

University of Exeter New research led by the University of Exeter suggests that rising global temperatures will increase the quantity of the key greenhouse gas methane emitted from freshwater ecosystems to the Earth's atmosphere – which could in turn lead to further warming. The collaborative study, led by Dr Gabriel Yvon-Durocher from the University of Exeter, collated data from hundreds of laboratory experiments and field surveys to demonstrate that the speed at which methane fluxes...

Reimagining How Earth Emerged Out Of Ice Age
2014-03-19 14:15:38

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers, publishing a paper in the journal Nature, say rapid erosion in mountain regions could explain why the Earth isn’t essentially still a snowball. Scientists have long believed that rocks pushed up to the surface by plate tectonics absorbed atmospheric carbon dioxide, and volcanic processes are what helps to emit this CO2. However, despite this theory and a variety of other hypotheses being put forward to balance the...

Blending Synthetic Air To Measure Climate Change
2014-02-27 09:59:21

National Physical Laboratory Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have produced a synthetic air reference standard which can be used to accurately measure levels of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere. This will greatly help scientists contribute to our understanding of climate change. A paper published in Analytical Chemistry describes how researchers at NPL have created a synthetic gas standard for the first time, which is comparable to the World...

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...
