Soot packs a punch on Tibetan Plateau’s climate

RICHLAND, Wash. -- In some cases, soot -- the fine, black carbon silt that is released from stoves, cars and manufacturing plants -- can pack more of a climatic punch than greenhouse gases, according to a paper published in the journal Atmospheri...

Choose less contaminating products thanks to eco-labeling

Ensuring the sustainability of the products we use is a fundamental challenge for society, and is becoming ever more important for consumers and companies. A researcher from the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) has come up with an ec...

Wolverines threatened by climate change, earlier springs

The aggressive wolverine may not be powerful enough to survive climate change in the contiguous United States, new research concludes. Wolverine habitat in the northwestern United States is likely to warm dramatically if society continues to e...

Ice cores yield rich history of climate change

On Friday, Jan. 28 in Antarctica, a research team investigating the last 100,000 years of Earth's climate history reached an important milestone completing the main ice core to a depth of 3,331 meters (10,928 feet) at West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divi...

The undead may influence biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- It's commonly known, at least among microbiologists, that microbes have an additional option to living or dying -- dormancy. Dormant microbes are less like zombies and more like hibernating bears. What isn't known, howev...

Researchers discover how to tame hammering droplets

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- A water hammer can occur when a valve is suddenly opened or closed in a pipe carrying water or steam, causing a pressure wave to travel down the pipe with enough force that it can sometimes cause the pipes to burst. Now, new rese...

Man, volcanoes and the sun have influenced Europe’s climate over recent...

An International research team has discovered that seasonal temperatures in Europe, above all in winter, have been affected over the past 500 years by natural factors such as volcanic eruptions and solar activity, and by human activities such ...

Earth’s hot past: Prologue to future climate?

The magnitude of climate change during Earth's deep past suggests that future temperatures may eventually rise far more than projected if society continues its pace of emitting greenhouse gases, a new analysis concludes. The study, by National...

MU scientists find new farming method to reduce greenhouse gases, increase...

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- U.S. agricultural practices create 58 percent of nitrous oxide in the world, which is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Scientists believe nitrous oxide contributes to global warming about 300 times more th...
