Researchers use a packer system to study the microbial communities living in waters sampled from deep, uncontaminated peridotite aquifers.
Using new methods, researchers can estimate how much methane is released each day from reservoirs—an important step in estimating global methane emissions.
Phytoplankton remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; a new study reveals that marine phytoplankton can also produce greenhouse gases when exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
New research finds that Actinobacteria in lava caves fix carbon and survive independent of surface inputs, offering a fresh perspective in the search for life beyond Earth.
New research finds that Arctic rivers currently transport limited permafrost-derived dissolved organic carbon, which has implications for understanding the region’s changing carbon cycle—and its potential to accelerate climate change.
A new meta-analysis finds evidence that adding fresh organic material can increase decomposition rates, but when and why that happens remain unclear.
A new study describes eukaryotic organisms found organized in a cortex-medulla pattern in southern China’s Kuanchuanpu Formation.
A new study looks into how air movement in the atmospheric boundary layer affects ozone removal by deciduous forests, which are a significant ozone sink.
Researchers compared the nitrogen removal potential by microbes in ditches that drained forested, urban, and agricultural lands and discovered that roadside ditches are important areas for removing nutrients.
