Human reasoning has helped us become one of the most successful species to populate the planet, but we still struggle with cognitive biases.
Scientists begin to fill a major data gap by investigating carbon dioxide dynamics in a remote region of the Arctic Ocean.
Isotope data bring scientists one step closer to revealing the microbial processes behind nitrous oxide emission in the tundra.
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.
Changes in precipitation and runoff in New England may be driving more dissolved organic carbon into the Gulf of Maine.
Researchers collected carbon from 3 years' worth of air samples and traced it back to its source.
New research sheds light on the streams that carry carbon away from peatlands with the hope that the data will better inform climate models.
Intermittent rivers are an increasing share of the world's river network, but current models don't include them. One research network is gathering knowledge about these rivers from around the world.
