Scientists measure dissolved black carbon in South China Sea water samples to better understand the carbon cycle in the oceans, which absorb roughly half of all carbon emitted into the atmosphere.
A new model better explains seasonal variations in biomass.
A study finds that population growth during urbanization and World War II–era plowing fed additional carbon into the Thames River Basin.

Mangrove forests, salt marshes, seagrass beds, and the like are carbon storage treasure troves.
Still-water ecosystems are key to combating explosive algae growth.
Overpumping and other activities that affect groundwater levels could combine with increased nitrogen runoff to amplify threats to human and environmental health.
Prevailing nutrient uptake models do not fit Arctic plants. Scientists test a new option that overcomes older models’ shortcomings.
Observations of carbon dioxide oversaturation in the freshwater of the world led scientists to study its underlying causes at more than 100 field locations across the nation.
Results of the first geographically based estimates of river nutrient supply indicate that 75% of dissolved nitrogen and 80% of phosphorus reach the open ocean.
