Dinosaur Farts May Have Caused Prehistoric Warming
2012-05-07 08:58:22

Brett Smith for RedOrbit.com Dinosaurs may have had a silent, but deadly effect on their climate according to new research by scientists at two UK universities. The study, published in the May 8 edition of Current Biology, compared the digestion-related methane production of Mesozoic-era sauropods to modern cows in an attempt to determine a possible impact as the gas ripped into their prehistoric environment. "A simple mathematical model suggests that the microbes living in sauropod...

Image 1 - Investigating Titan's Chemical Factory
2012-04-25 03:20:22

Saturn's giant moon Titan hides behind a thick, smoggy atmosphere that's well known to scientists as one of the most complex chemical environments in the solar system. It's a productive "factory" cranking out hydrocarbons that rain down on Titan's icy surface and cloak it in soot. With a brutally cold surface temperature of around minus 270 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 170 degrees Celsius), the hydrocarbons form lakes of liquid methane and ethane. However, the most important raw ingredient in...

Scientists Concerned About Methane, Fishing In Arctic Ocean
2012-04-23 04:04:47

While some scientists encouraged the creation of regulations governing fishing in the Arctic Ocean on Sunday, others published a report warning that the body of water could actually be a significant source of the greenhouse gas methane. The latter team, lead by Eric Kort of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), participated in a total of five flights to measure atmospheric methane levels in latitudes as high as 82 degrees north in 2009 and 2010, AFP reporters said. They...

Ocean Found To Be Surprising Source Of Arctic Methane
2012-04-23 03:49:05

The fragile and rapidly changing Arctic region is home to large reservoirs of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. As Earth's climate warms, the methane, frozen in reservoirs stored in Arctic tundra soils or marine sediments, is vulnerable to being released into the atmosphere, where it can add to global warming. Now a multi-institutional study by Eric Kort of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., has uncovered a surprising and potentially important new source of Arctic methane:...

Sea-life In America’s Midwest?
2012-04-17 11:15:18

New research from the American Museum of Natural History shows that America´s Great Plains region may have once been home to some typically sea-bound creatures. Ammonites – a type of shelled mollusk, now extinct and closely related to the nautiluses and squids of today – may have lived in methane seeps when a seaway once covered America´s midwest. The findings have been published online in the journal Geology, and shed some new light on how and where these ancient...

Uranus' moon Umbriel -- Umbriel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. It was named after the 'dusky melancholy sprite' in Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Umbriel's surface is the darkest of the Uranian moons, and it is also the least geologically active. It is mostly composed of water ice, with the balance made up of silicate rock and methane ice. Most of its methane ice is on its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...

Uranus' moon Ariel -- Ariel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. Its composition is roughly 50% water ice, 30% silicate rock, and 20% methane ice, and it appears to have regions of fresh frost in places. Largely devoid of impact craters, Ariel appears to have undergone a period of intense geological activity that has produced a huge network of fault canyons and liquid water outflows over its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
