Site design and location can minimize carbon dioxide, methane emissions An international team of scientists has amassed the largest data set to date on greenhouse gas emissions from hydroelectric reservoirs. Their analysis, published August 1 in the online version of Nature Geoscience, posits that these human-made systems emit about 1/6 of the carbon dioxide and methane previously attributed to them. Prior studies based on more limited data cautioned that hydroelectric reservoirs could be a...

The release of a huge amount of methane gas may have caused a massive, prehistoric extinction that gave way to the arrival of dinosaurs as the dominant life form on earth, according to a new study. Micha Ruhl and his team of researchers from the Nordic Center for Earth Evolution at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark suggest that the mass extinction of half of Earth's marine life over 200 million years ago was a result of a huge release of carbon methane into the atmosphere, which led to...

By Craig Osenberg, University of Florida Plants are good for the planet because, among other things, they help offset the effects of global climate change. It turns out, however, that other members of the terrestrial ecosystem, soil microbes, may exacerbate the problem, offsetting some of the beneficial effects of plants. In a new study published in the July 14 edition of the journal Nature, researchers conclude that more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes soil to release the potent...

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...
