Fluffy Antarctic Snow Provides New Insights On Climate Cycles
2013-02-26 10:35:56

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.

Cooking Up Our Solar System, What's The Recipe?
2013-02-21 05:05:42

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.

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.

Oxygen's Rise And Fall In The Early Atmosphere And Ocean
2012-10-23 20:44:52

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

Microbes Produced Oxygen Well Before Great Oxidation Event

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
2013-04-01 10:21:17

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...
