  • Calcium helps evaluate soil’s ability to retain earth’s carbon

    Soils play a vital role in dealing with the environmental impacts of rising atmospheric carbon levels, primarily CO2, from natural and human activities. The Earth’s carbon budget is a dynamic process. As carbon is released through fossil-fuel burning and changing land use, scientists are seeking a more accurate understanding of carbon storage and cycling. The Earth holds carbon in what scientists ...

  • LI-COR Analyzers Monitoring Carbon Dioxide Worldwide as Atmospheric Levels Reach 400 parts per million

    On May 13, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported a preliminary daily average carbon dioxide (CO2) reading of 400.07 parts per million (ppm) at the Mauna Loa Observatory on the Big Island of Hawaii. On May 9, a reading over 400 ppm was reported at the site for the first time ever. But that reading (400.03 ppm) was later revised to 399.89 ppm. The first CO2 ...

  • Finding the real potential of no-till farming for sequestering carbon

    The potential of no-tillage (NT) soils for increasing the soil organic carbon (SOC) pool must be critically and objectively assessed. Most of the previous studies about SOC accrual in NT soils have primarily focused on the surface layer (<20-cm soil depth), and not for the whole soil profile. The lack of adequate data on the SOC profile is a hindrance to conclusively ascertain the effects of ...


  • Figuring out where to put the carbon

    To meet our immediate energy needs without exacerbating climate change, most experts agree, we’ll need to find a way to store the carbon dioxide given off by the combustion of coal, oil and natural gas. But no full-scale storage systems exist, and the plans to create them have many unknowns. New projects at MIT could help to fill that information gap. At the American Geophysical Union’s fall ...

  • CSULA researchers study the effects of planting carbon underground

    Working among the pines and lakes of Mammoth Mountain, Cal State L.A. faculty and students are studying the potential impact of technologies that can slow carbon dioxide accumulation in the atmosphere by storing it underground.   The team of researchers, fueled by funding and staff support from the University’s Center for Energy and Sustainability (CEaS), are utilizing ...

  • Human-made climate change suppresses the next ice age

    Humanity has become a geological force that is able to suppress the beginning of the next ice age, a study now published in the renowned scientific journal Nature shows. Cracking the code of glacial inception, scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research found the relation of insolation and CO2 concentration in the atmosphere to be the key criterion to explain the ...

  • US EPA seeks public comment on greenhouse gas inventory

    The US Environmental Protection Agency is seeking public comment on a draft annual report that analyzes sources of greenhouse gas emissions. The report, Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990-2006, will be open for public comment for 30 days after the Federal Register notice is published. The major finding in this year's draft report is that overall emissions during 2006 ...

  • Science article on GHG accounting misses the mark on biofuels

    Biofuels produced from biomass feedstocks (i.e. plant matter) are, by definition, carbon neutral because carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions from the combustion of biofuels are readily absorbed by growing plants. As such, the tailpipe emissions resulting from the use of a gallon of ethanol produced from corn grown on U.S. farmland are negated by the growing of the corn itself. Yet, in a newly ...

  • FAO launches new climate change mitigation programme

    Finland is the first country to contribute to a $60 million FAO programme to support climate change mitigation in agriculture in developing countries. The multi-donor programme aims to promote sustainable low-emission agriculture in developing countries over the coming five years, in partnership with countries and other relevant organizations. Finland will provide an initial support of around ...

  • Typhoons bury tons of carbon in the oceans

    A single typhoon in Taiwan buries as much carbon in the ocean - in the form of sediment - as all the other rains in that country all year long combined. That's the finding of an Ohio State University study published in a recent issue of the journal Geology. The study - the first ever to examine the chemistry of stream water and sediments that were being washed out to sea while a typhoon was ...


  • Finding savings where the rubber meets the road

    A new study by civil engineers at MIT shows that using stiffer pavements on the nation's roads could reduce vehicle fuel consumption by as much as 3 percent - a savings that could add up to 273 million barrels of crude oil per year, or $15.6 billion at today's oil prices. This would result in an accompanying annual decrease in CO2 emissions of 46.5 million metric tons. Study shows that pavement ...
