Latest Greenhouse gases Stories
NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory was recently placed into a thermal vacuum chamber to prepare for its launch in July 2014.
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.
Using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array telescope in northern Chile, scientists have identified a very young star in our galaxy which had such an explosive birth, it used to be about 100 times brighter than it is now.
The carbon dioxide content already present in the Earth’s atmosphere would continue to cause warming for hundreds of years, even if the emissions were to suddenly stop today, according to new research from Princeton University.
If a new study based on fossil amber is correct, then the atmosphere of the Cretaceous had a relatively low oxygen content – making the high-oxygen theories severely flawed.
The first step in developing a cost-effective micro sensor for long-term monitoring of ocean acidification has been achieved by a team of scientists and engineers.
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...
- In costermongers' slang, a cheap red-skinned apple, which is rubbed hard with a cloth to give it the appearance and feeling of an apple of superior quality.
