Scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) have concluded a study to measure levels of carbon at various levels in the Arctic Ocean, providing a baseline for further understanding. The study was recently published in the journal Biogeosciences. It provides data that will help researchers in the future as they try to better
According to a new study, the increase in global temperatures may play a significant role in altering the capacity trees have to store carbon dioxide, by changing the forest nitrogen cycle.
There is a source of increased carbon emissions that not many people are looking at; the destruction of trees during a hurricane or other strong storm. Investigating situations such as this are leading scientists to better understand the carbon cycle.
A new research paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience has drawn attention to the possibility that the Earth may be able to recover quicker than anticipated from rising carbon dioxide emissions.
It is the fundamental structural element of all living things. It is a key component of many energy sources, and, it is a crucial player in our planet’s climate system. The natural cycling of this element — Carbon (C) — between earth, atmosphere and ocean maintains the habitable conditions that all Life depends upon. Much
