May 11, 2015 — Dedicating more land to biofuel production can lead to increased greenhouse gas emissions, which take decades to make up for. A new study shows that geography is a key factor determining how big that ... read more

Historical Land Use an Important Factor for Carbon Cycling in Northern Lakes

May 13, 2015 — The historical past is important when we seek to understand environmental conditions as they are today and predict how these might change in the future, according to researchers whose analyses of ... read more

May 13, 2015 — River transport of carbon to the ocean is not on a scale that will solve our carbon dioxide problem, but we haven't known how much carbon the world's rivers routinely flush into the ocean, ... 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
