May 26, 2015 — A first global scale study has estimated how forest emitted compounds affecting cloud seeds via formation of low-volatility vapors. According to the latest projections, terrestrial vegetation emits ... read more

Breastfeeding Protects Against Environmental Pollution

May 22, 2015 — Living in a city with a high level of vehicle traffic or close to a steel works means living with two intense sources of environmental pollution. However, a study indicates that the harmful pollution ... read more

May 20, 2015 — From June 1 through July 15, researchers from across North America will fan out each evening across the Great Plains to study the mysterious phenomenon of nighttime ... read more

May 20, 2015 — New evidence has linked Arctic warming with severe weather in countries including the UK and US. The studies are adding to the growing weight of evidence linking increased Arctic temperatures with ... read more

Atmospheric Release of BPA May Reach Nearby Waterways

May 19, 2015 — Existing research has determined that harmful concentrations of Bisphenol-A (BPA) have been deposited directly into rivers and streams by municipal or industrial wastewater. Now, researchers have ... read more

Study Highlights Ways to Boost Weather, Climate Predictions

May 18, 2015 — Long range weather forecasts and climate change projections could be significantly boosted by advances in our understanding of the relationship between layers of the Earth's atmosphere -- the ... read more

May 18, 2015 — A factor that determines the properties of clouds that help moderate the planet's temperature may be decided in the oceans. The oceans are home to phytoplankton, which when they decay, produce ... read more

May 15, 2015 — Upper mantle carbonates are magnesium-rich and iron-poor. Under lower mantle conditions, it is thought that the arrangement of electrons in carbonate minerals changes under the pressure stress in ... read more

May 14, 2015 — New research confirms that as carbon emissions continue to climb, so too has the Earth's capacity to absorb carbon dioxide from the ... read more

May 14, 2015 — Climate change -- in the form of a stronger sea breeze, the result of warmer soil temperatures -- contributed to the drop in high-ozone days in the Houston area, scientists have determined. They add ... read more

May 14, 2015 — Updated data and better analysis methods have found clear indications of warming in the upper troposphere and a 10 percent increase in winds over the Southern Ocean. The inability to detect this ... read more

Atmosphere: Finding the Missing Particles

May 13, 2015 — For the past 20 years, a large portion of the particles measured in the atmosphere were missing from models. At best, models were able to explain one-tenth of the carbon-rich secondary organic ... read more

May 12, 2015 — A strong connection between high ozone days in the western US during late spring and La Nina, an ocean-atmosphere phenomena that affects global weather patterns, has been identified by researchers. ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Just as waves ripple across a pond when a tossed stone disturbs the water's surface, gravity waves ripple toward space from disturbances in the lower ... read more

May 11, 2015 — The underlying physical process that creates striking 'breaking wave' cloud patterns in our atmosphere also frequently opens the gates to high-energy solar wind plasma that perturbs ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Increased atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations have already caused large-scale physiological responses of European forests. In particular, the efficiency of water-use of trees, which is coupled ... read more

May 4, 2015 — The main job of pollen is to help seed the next generation of trees and plants, but a new study shows that the grains might also seed ... read more

Apr. 29, 2015 — The composition and radiative effect of desert aerosols have been analyzed by researchers. Results show that the intrusion of dust from the Sahara Desert caused radiative cooling of the Earth's ... read more

Apr. 28, 2015 — Scientists have captured the first high-resolution images of the flaring magnetic structures known as solar flux ropes at their point of origin in the sun's ... read more
