  • Record greenhouse gas levels: see for yourself

    For the first time, greenhouse gas data are accessed easily on a new CSIRO website. The site shows the levels of greenhouse gases measured in the Southern Hemisphere atmosphere for the past 35 years. Observed greenhouse gas concentrations – as measured by CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology at Cape Grim, Tasmania – can be easily explored by members of the public. ...

  • Satellite to Zoom In on Crucial Carbon Questions

    The US space agency NASA is about to send up a satellite that will provide vital data for predicting future effects of CO2 by taking the measure of the planetary carbon budget. OCO-2, more formally known as Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2, is planned for launch on July 1 and will circle the globe, taking ...

  • A new leaf turns in carbon science

    A new insight into global photosynthesis, the chemical process governing how ocean and land plants absorb and release carbon dioxide, has been revealed in research that will assist scientists to more accurately assess future climate change. In a paper published today in Nature, a team of US, Dutch and Australian scientists have estimated that the global rate of photosynthesis, the ...

  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • Carbon Monoxide from South American Fires Blows to Australia

    UTRECHT, The Netherlands (ENS) - Much of the carbon monoxide hovering over Australia during wildfire season originated from South American wildfires some 13,000 kilometers (8,000 miles) away, scientists have determined, using satellite data. Knowledge about the global distribution of carbon monoxide is important because it affects air quality and climate. Using data from ...

  • Global monitoring network to visit CO2CRC Otway Project

    More than 20 atmospheric researchers from the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) will visit the CO2CRC Otway Project today to see the atmospheric monitoring system used to assure the project’s safe storage of carbon dioxide deep underground. “The Otway Project has given us a lot of experience in this area,” says Nadja Muller, Otway Project Manager. “CSIRO ...

  • Ice core studies confirm accuracy of climate models

    An analysis of the global carbon cycle and climate for a 70,000-year period in the most recent Ice Age shows a remarkable correlation between carbon dioxide levels and surprisingly abrupt changes in climate. The findings, to be published this week in the online edition of the journal Science, shed further light on the fluctuations in greenhouse gases and climate in Earth’s past, and appear to ...


  • Air quality monitoring station installed in China with help of Ecotech

    Shangri-La, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, means ‘land of sacredness and peace.’ in the Tibetan language. It is an exotic paradise located 3600m above sea level in southern China.  A place you would image to be devoid of the pollution plaguing major cities around the world.  The Chinese Meteorological Administration (CMA) are determined to keep it this way and have just ...

  • California Air Resources Board Purchases Additional N2O/CO Analyzers from Los Gatos Research

    Los Gatos Research (LGR), the leader in precision trace gas analyzers, has received an order for five more of the company's unique N2O/CO (nitrous oxide/carbon monoxide) trace gas analyzers from the California Air Resources Board (CARB). These particular instruments (part of LGR's acclaimed Enhanced Performance series) deliver extremely stringent performance specifications, including better than ...

  • Iron’s mixed blessing for health of oceans

    Technology’s answer to climate change in a world in which humans go on releasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has just had another setback. The idea of fertilising the planet’s oceans with iron filings to stimulate green growth and turn the oceans into a carbon sink isn’t so simple as hoped. Two studies – both involving experiments at sea – have ...

  • NASA to Launch Global Warming Satellite After Loss

    Five years after a NASA satellite to track carbon dioxide plunged into the ocean after liftoff, the space agency is launching a carbon copy - this time on a different rocket. The $468 million mission is designed to study the main driver of climate change emitted from smokestacks and tailpipes. Some of the carbon dioxide is sucked up by trees and oceans, and the rest is lofted into the atmosphere, ...

  • Unique compact and ultra-portable GHG analyzer enables in-situ measurements anywhere

    Los Gatos Research (LGR), the leader in precision trace gas analyzers, has introduced the world’s first ultra-portable greenhouse gas (GHG) analyzer, which reports methane, carbon dioxide and water vapor with parts per billion precision and accuracy in a rugged, crush-proof and compact package. This new Ultra-portable Greenhouse Gas Analyzer (UGGA) simultaneously measures CO2, CH4 and H2O ...

  • Growth of Atmospheric Methane Stablizes, May Slow Global Warming

    IRVINE, California, November 21, 2006 (ENS) - Levels of atmospheric methane, a potent greenhouse gas, have stayed nearly flat for the past seven years after rising for more than two decades, according to new research led by a Novel Prize winning scientist at the University of California-Irvine. This finding indicates that methane may no longer be as large a global warming threat as previously ...

  • Highest performance greenhouse gas analyzer now available at pricepoint optimized for widespread deployment and use

The microbes break down the particles of oil, converting it ...


  • US firefighters pay a heavy price for contaminated breathing air

    A recent incident at a Fire Department in Henderson, Nevada, prompted emergency action and a hefty bill for city officials. Firefighters reported a smell of petroleum coming from the air tanks in their self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). The problem was traced to an air compressor which is believed to have introduced contaminants into the system. The compressor has now been replaced, ...
