  • Carbon dioxide could ease drought impacts

    Climate science may have over-estimated the menace of drought in the world of global warming. Because green plants will respond to extra carbon dioxide, the water taken up by the roots could be halved. In effect, the greenhouse gas emissions that threaten the world’s climates could at the same time limit one ...

  • Climate models may be overestimating the cooling effect of wildfire aerosols

    Original story at MIT News Whether intentionally set to consume agricultural waste or naturally ignited in forests or peatlands, open-burning fires impact the global climate system in two ways which, to some extent, cancel each other out. On one hand, they generate a significant fraction of ...

  • SST Develop Cost Effective Solution to Carbon Dioxide Danger

    As building design increasingly embraces low energy solutions so the concern over internal air quality increases. Monitoring the levels of carbon dioxide found in homes and businesses has become increasingly important and in response to the increased demand from local authorities, architects and builders for accurate, reliable, maintenance free carbon dioxide detectors SST Sensing has developed ...

  • Questions and Answers on the proposal for a directive on the geological storage of carbon dioxide

    1) What is carbon capture and storage? Carbon capture and storage is a suite of technological processes which involve capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the gases discarded by industry and transporting and injecting it into geological formations. The major application for carbon capture and storage (CCS) is to reduce CO2 emissions from power generation from fossil fuels, principally ...

  • ASTM D513 - 11e1 Standard Test Methods for Total and Dissolved Carbon Dioxide in Water

    Carbon dioxide is a major respiration product of plants and animals and a decomposition product of organic matter and certain minerals. The atmosphere averages about 0.04 vol % of CO2. Surface waters generally contain less than 10 mg/L, except at local points of abnormal organic or mineral decomposition; however, underground water, particularly deep waters, may contain ...

  • Wildfires Spew Carbon Emissions Into the Atmosphere

    BOULDER, Colorado, November 1, 2007 (ENS) - Severe wildfires can contribute as much as vehicles to carbon emissions in some U.S. states, although the amount is highly variable, according to a study based on satellite data. New research published in the journal 'Carbon Balance and Management' quantifies these emissions and suggests fires will complicate emissions monitoring and modelling efforts. ...

  • Big emitters facing carbon limits

    Sectoral industry agreements have received considerable attention for their potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But developing countries remain wary. As talks between the 160 nations party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change grind towards a finale in Copenhagen in December 2009, many heavy industries are keeping a close watch on what emission reduction schemes ...

  • Desert plantations could help capture carbon

    Planting trees in coastal deserts could capture carbon dioxide, reduce harsh desert temperatures, boost rainfall, revitalise soils and produce cheap biofuels, say scientists. Large-scale plantations of the hardy jatropha tree, Jatropha curcas, could help sequester carbon ...

  • Could carbon credit schemes save the whale?

    It's likely that commercial whaling has released around one hundred million tons of carbon to the atmosphere over a century or so. That's according to researcher Andrew Pershing, who believes that carbon credit schemes could be employed as an incentive to protect whales and large fish such as bluefin tuna. In a joint project backed by the University of Maine, US, and Gulf of Maine Research ...

  • Black carbon a significant factor in melting of Himalayan glaciers

    The fact that glaciers in the Himalayan mountains are thinning is not disputed. However, few researchers have attempted to rigorously examine and quantify the causes. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientist Surabi Menon set out to isolate the impacts of the most commonly blamed culprit—greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide—from other particles in the air that may be causing the ...
