Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
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.
The first thorough comparison of evidence for natural gas system leaks confirms that organizations including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have underestimated US methane emissions generally, as well as those from the natural gas industry specifically.
For the first time, scientists have discovered how tree roots in the mountains may play an important role in controlling long-term global temperatures.
According to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, wildfires could explain why the Earth was so hot three million years ago.
The tropical carbon cycle has become twice as sensitive to temperature variations over the past 50 years.
Safety Gas Detection are pleased to announce a significant new contract.
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.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan.
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
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...
