A new study focusing on the mineral molybdenite could provide new insight into the way that various geological and biological processes have resulted in changes to the Earth’s chemistry over the years.
A team of scientists has found particles from the upper atmosphere trapped in a deep pile of fluffy Antarctic snow that hold clear chemical traces of global meteorological events.
A research team from the University of California, San Diego is hoping to learn how our solar system evolved by studying the origins of different isotope ratios among the elements that make up today’s smorgasbord of planets, moons, comets, asteroids, and interplanetary ice and dust.

Scientists have developed a way to grow iron-oxidizing bacteria using electricity instead of iron, an advance that will allow them to better study the organisms and could one day be used to turn electricity into fuel.
“Global Trade Analysis of Yellow Phosphorus” is the latest addition to market research reports library of ReportsnReports.com. Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December
Researchers from the University of Washington have linked decreasing levels of a nitrogen isotope in Greenland ice sheet samples to increased acidity levels in the atmosphere.
The study of materials at extreme conditions took a giant leap forward with the discovery of a way to generate super high pressures without using shock waves whose accompanying heat turns solids to liquid.
UC Riverside-led research team finds evidence for a dramatic rise in early oxygen about 2.3 billion years ago followed, more surprisingly, by an equally impressive fall
Life on earth began in the oceans, but it would eventually spread to land and a new study suggests that land-dwelling bacteria could have covered large swaths of territory about 2.7 billion years ago, despite a thin ozone layer that would have offered little protection against the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.
Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
