  • More than one third of soils studied in southwest England are highly degraded

    An extensive field investigation discovered that 38% of soils in southwest England show signs of enhanced surface water runoff due to soil degradation. The study also revealed which types of fields and soils are linked to the most or least degradation. Damage to soil causes water runoff across the landscape instead of being infiltrated properly by the soil. Poor land management is known to cause ...

  • Will CO2 stay in the ground?

    Storing carbon deep below the earth's surface could play a prominent role in tackling climate change. But before underground CO2 reservoirs can be deployed as viable long-term storage options, environmental concerns over leakages and the behaviour of trapped CO2 must be addressed. A new model can help predict how different geological sites will respond to CO2 sequestration, and the likelihood of ...
