Applying World Heritage status to highly valuable environmental records would spotlight the vital insights they provide into how Earth is changing and would ensure their longevity and accessibility.
Applying Algal Geometry to Past and Future Environments
Math can be fun when reconstructing the ocean’s past and forecasting the future with algal geometry.
Delta Degradation Leads to Exacerbated Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Seismic ship surveys and seabed elevation maps of the Yangtze subaqueous delta reveal how the reduction of sediment supply to the coastal ocean can trigger increased greenhouse gas emissions.
El dióxido de carbono antropogénico es rastreado hacia el océano
Con ayuda de un modelo de circulación oceánica, un equipo de investigadores logró etiquetar y rastrear el carbono emitido antropogénicamente para determinar si su destino es la atmósfera o el océano.
Silicate Weathering Throttles the Global Thermostat
The natural breakdown of some rocks sucks carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Knowing how quickly it happens could help scientists engineer solutions to the climate crisis.
Small Shrubs May Have Played a Large Role in Decarbonizing the Ancient Atmosphere
Vascular plants may have contributed to shaping Earth’s atmosphere long before trees evolved.
CO2 Reduces the Onset of Fracturing at the Nanoscale in Quartz
Large scale molecular dynamics simulations unravel the coupled processes at work during fracturing and flow of carbon dioxide and water in quartz grains at the nanoscale.
Rare and Revealing: Radiocarbon in Service of Paleoceanography
While radiocarbon is best known as a dating tool, this rare isotope can also provide unique and wide-ranging insights into the cycling of carbon in the Earth system.
Why is the North China Craton Vulnerable to Destruction?
A new study suggests that carbonatite metasomatism, not silicate metasomatism as previously thought, was dominant prior to the removal of the North China Craton in the early Cretaceous.
Unlocking the Magmatic Secrets of Antarctica’s Mount Erebus
Unprecedented images of Mount Erebus’s inner workings show the unique trappings of a CO2-rich rift volcano.
