A four-degree-Celsius rise in the Earth’s surface temperature could max out the amount of carbon dioxide forests can trap from the atmosphere.
Contrary to common belief, rivers and streams release carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere at a rate five times greater than the world's lakes and reservoirs combined, according to a study published in the journal Nature.
Can an abandoned mine help with the fight against global warming? Researchers from Stanford University think so. They have been using an abandoned mine to gain new insights on how to permanently entomb greenhouse gas emissions inside the Earth.
Two new review studies published in the journal Nature reveal how a changing climate will impact coastal habitat, including the destructive forces of coastal flooding due to rising sea levels.
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...
