The tropical carbon cycle has become twice as sensitive to temperature variations over the past 50 years, new research has revealed. The research shows that a one degree rise in tropical temperature leads to around two billion extra tonnes of carbon being released per year into the atmosphere from tropical ecosystems, compared with the same tropical warming in the 1960s and 1970s. Professor Pierre Friedlingstein and Professor Peter Cox, from the University of Exeter, collaborated with...

Earth’s CO2 And Climate Stabilized By Ancient Forests
2014-01-24 12:38:58

European Geosciences Union UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilized over the past 24 million years. When CO2 levels became too low for plants to grow properly, forests appear to have kept the climate in check by slowing down the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The results are now published in Biogeosciences, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU)....

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carbon Lighthouse, a one-stop shop for organizations to profitably eliminate their carbon footprints, has successfully eliminated enough carbon to offset one year of emissions of a California power plant. By the end of 2013, Carbon Lighthouse reported a cumulative elimination of 25,777 tons of carbon over the lifetime of their energy efficiency projects. To put this number in perspective, the average annual output of a peaker...

US Power Plant Emissions Down
2014-01-10 09:13:07

University of Colorado at Boulder Power plants that use natural gas and a new technology to squeeze more energy from the fuel release far less of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide than coal-fired power plants do, according to a new analysis accepted for publication Jan. 8 in Earth's Future, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. The so-called "combined cycle" natural gas power plants also release significantly less nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide, which can worsen air quality....

Carbon Dioxide Emissions Keep Conch Snails From Escaping Predation
2014-01-07 13:18:57

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from an international team of scientists has found that if more carbon dioxide makes its way into the ocean – conch snails will be more vulnerable to predation. Conch snails typically use a strong foot-like appendage to leap away from approaching predators. According to the team’s study, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, when the snails are exposed to carbon dioxide levels...

Fluctuation 'adds insult to injury' for marine creatures A new Duke University-led study has documented dramatic, natural short-term increases in the acidity of a North Carolina estuary. "The natural short-term variability in acidity we observed over the course of one year exceeds 100-year global predictions for the ocean as a whole and may already be exerting added pressure on some of the estuary's organisms, particularly shelled organisms that are especially susceptible to changes in...

Carbon Dioxide Observatory Spacecraft Placed In Vacuum Chamber In Preps For Launch
2013-12-26 03:31:31

Gerard LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) was recently placed into a thermal vacuum chamber to prepare for its launch in July 2014. The OCO-2 is a craft that will orbit the Earth and take high-resolution data of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. It was prepped and tested at the Orbital Sciences Satellite Manufacturing Facility in Gilbert, Arizona. In late November the OCO-2 was placed into the vacuum chamber to confirm the...

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...
