Antiguas avalanchas submarinas llevaron arena al abismo oceánico en el momento en que algunos menos lo esperaban.
The array of processes and organisms that make up the biological carbon pump has immense influence on Earth’s carbon cycle and climate. But there’s still much to learn about how the pump works.
New research suggests that mycorrhizal fungi take in 13 billion tons of carbon dioxide annually, playing a prominent role in Earth’s carbon cycle.
A global survey of mosses growing on soil found that the somewhat underappreciated plants cover a vast area and perform tasks such as sequestering carbon.
A new study shows that losses are global in both arid and humid regions and could have significant impacts on a quarter of Earth’s population.
As companies begin selling credits for marine carbon dioxide removal in largely unregulated marketplaces, scientists must develop standards for assessing the effectiveness of removal methods.
Nutrients from the seabirds’ guano fuels the growth of carbon-storing phytoplankton, but penguin populations have plunged in the past 4 decades.
If terrestrial biosphere models don’t include nitrogen, they will overestimate carbon sequestration.
Ancient underwater avalanches carried sand into the ocean’s abyss during a time when some least expected it.
Livestock grazing areas sequester less carbon than those under wild herbivores.
