Agricultural practices play a big role in seasonal swings of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

New study from Boston University, the University of Michigan and other institutions identifies a new, direct fingerprint of human activity on Earth as agricultural crops play a big role in seasonal swings of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.Modern agricultural

New approach to estimate 15 years of CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels

A new system, called the “Fossil Fuel Data Assimilation System,” (FFDAS) has been used to quantify 15 years of CO2 emissions, every hour, for the entire planet – down to the city scale.An international research team led by ASU scientists has developed

Ancient forests stabilised Earth’s CO2 and climate

UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilised over the past 24 million years. When CO2 levels became too low for plants to grow properly, forests appear to have

Rise of atmospheric CO2 can cause more space junk collisions

Rise of atmospheric carbon dioxide in upper level of Earth's atmosphere is expected to gradually result in a cooler, more contracted high-altitude atmospheric layer or thermosphere, and a consequent reduction in the atmospheric drag experienced by satellites,

The rise in sea level of the Mediterranean is accelerating

"The sea level in the Mediterranean has risen by between 1 and 1.5 millimetres each year since 1943, but this does not seem set to continue, because it now seems that the speed at which it rises is accelerating", Manuel Vargas Yáñez, main author of the book Cambio
