  • Even soil feels the heat

    Twenty years of field studies reveal that as the Earth has gotten warmer, plants and microbes in the soil have given off more carbon dioxide. So-called soil respiration has increased about one-tenth of 1 percent per year since 1989, according to an analysis of past studies in this week's issue of Nature. The scientists also calculated the total amount of carbon dioxide flowing from soils, which ...

  • Genome of nitrogen-fixing, soil-living bacterium sequenced

    A collaboration of researchers, which includes scientists at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) and Virginia Tech, have completed the genome sequence of Azotobacter vinelandii, uncovering important genetic information that will contribute to a more complete understanding of the biology of this versatile, soil-living bacterium. The work will help advance research on A. vinelandii's role ...

  • Mapping Earth`s soil moisture with NASA

    Professor Dara Entekhabi from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is to lead a science team designing a NASA satellite mission to collect global soil moisture measurements and other data seen as key to improving weather, flood and drought forecasts and predictions of agricultural productivity and climate change. At present, scientists have no network for gathering soil ...

  • Study helps clarify role of soil microbes in global warming

    Current models of global climate change predict warmer temperatures will increase the rate that bacteria and other microbes decompose soil organic matter, a scenario that pumps even more heat-trapping carbon into the atmosphere. But a new study led by a University of Georgia researcher shows that while the rate of decomposition increases for a brief period in response to warmer temperatures, ...

  • Patience pays off with methanol for uranium bioremediation

    The legacy of nuclear weapons and nuclear energy development has left ground water and sediment at dozens of sites across the United States and many more around the world contaminated with uranium. The uranium is transported through ground water as uranyl (U6+). In one bioremediation strategy, uranium immobilization in contaminated ground water and sediment may be achieved by the addition of ...

Four $1500 awards ...


  • Greenhouse Gas Benchmark of 400 Parts per Million reached and excceded

    For the first time since the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration began tracking carbon dioxide in the global atmosphere, the monthly global average concentration of this greenhouse gas surpassed 400 parts per million in March 2015, according to NOAA’s latest results. ...

  • Entsorga-Enteco 2009 – Focus on `Air Quality Control & Emissions Protection`: Mission `Clean Air` forges ahead

    Air quality control is one of the success stories of European environmental policy. Ever fewer air pollutants are being released into the atmosphere from power stations, waste incineration plants,industrial processes. But this is no reason to sitback. Environmental policy is still focussing above all on nitrogen compounds such as NOx and ammonia as well as particulate matter and ground-level ...
