Alpine Glaciers Important For Carbon Cycle 091812
2012-09-18 12:19:01

Recently, an international collaboration headed by Tom Battin from the Department of Limnology at the University of Vienna looked at an little-studied example of a carbon cycle. His team’s task was to explore and determine the role of Alpine glaciers in the carbon-cycling process. Glaciers are, in effect, nature’s freezers. Items that were deposited into the glaciers over several millennia became locked in a frozen tomb. And it is only on account of unprecedentedly rapid glacial melt...

In a surprising finding, North Carolina State University researchers have shown that certain underground organisms thought to promote chemical interactions that make the soil a carbon sink actually play a more complex, dual role when atmospheric carbon levels rise.

Biomass Increase Found In West African Forests

Even in the midst of a four decade long drought, protected forests in West Africa have somehow experienced an increase in their carbon storage capacity in recent years, a team of researchers from Ghana and the UK have discovered.

A laboratory study led by UNC medical oncologist Stergios Moschos, MD, demonstrates how a new targeted drug, Elesclomol, blocks oxidative phosphorylation, which appears to play essential role in melanoma that has not been well-understood. Elesclomol (Synta Pharmaceuticals, Lexington, MA) was previously shown to have clinical benefit only in patients with normal serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), a laboratory test routinely used to assess activity of disease.

Physicians have long known that exercise and a healthy diet contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

Two New Views Of Carbon Sinks

In the last 50 years, man has quadrupled his CO2 output, primarily through the burning of fossil fuels. That is a startling and sobering concept. So far, though, Mother Nature seems to be keeping pace.

Osaka, July 30, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Panasonic has developed an artificial photosynthesis system which converts carbon dioxide (CO2) to organic materials by illuminating with sunlight at a world's

As Area Burned By Wildfire Increases Washington's Forests Will Lose Stored Carbon
