Phytoplankton remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; a new study reveals that marine phytoplankton can also produce greenhouse gases when exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
Mejorando el presupuesto mundial para el metanol atmosférico
Nuevos datos de exploración con aeronaves muestran que aunque la química atmosférica sobre regiones oceánicas remotas es una fuente considerable de producción de metanol, la emisión neta de metanol del océano es menor.
Improving the Global Budget for Atmospheric Methanol
New aircraft survey data show that although atmospheric chemistry above remote ocean regions is a considerable source of methanol production, the ocean’s net methanol emission is minor.
The Surprising Source of Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Changing the way emissions are tallied may help litigators focus on the worst climate offenders and shape mitigation.
Halocarbons: What Are They and Why Are They Important?
CFCs and other halocarbons have long been known for causing an ozone hole over the Antarctic, but many of them are also powerful greenhouse gases.
Marine Nitrous Oxide Emissions off Northwest Europe
Continental shelves and estuaries are natural sources of nitrous oxide, but current global estimates of these emissions carry a lot of uncertainty, a problem that calls for regional studies.
How Does Climate Respond to Different Forcings?
Global temperature responds in the same way to carbon dioxide as it does to methane or aerosol changes if the concept of effective radiative forcing is used to quantify the forcing strength.
2020 Hindsight: A Website for All Paleo-CO2 Data
A new website will soon compile and display all ancient atmospheric CO2 data.
Gas Bubble Forensics Team Surveils the New Zealand Ocean
An international research group recorded the acoustic signatures of gas bubbles rising from a hydrothermal vent field to gather clues about greenhouse gases escaping into the atmosphere.
Atlantic Circulation Consistently Tied to Carbon Dioxide
Past ocean surface conditions suggest that over the past 800,000 years, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels typically rose on millennial timescales when Atlantic overturning was weaker and vice versa.
