Increased atmospheric carbon dioxide promotes algal growth
It is usually thought that unlike terrestrial plants, submerged plants like algae will not show any response to an increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide. This view may be biased by a neglect of the effects of the plants themselves on the water chemistry. In the June issue of Ecology Letters, Schippers, Lürling and Scheffer of the Wageningen University show that, if this effect is included,... View News Article (2004-05-13)

Gas-guzzling bacteria
The discovery of a new soil bacterium that consumes methane by oxidising it under atmospheric conditions is reported in Nature, out today. In well-drained soils, these methane-oxidising bacteria can reduce atmospheric levels of methane by 10 per cent. Methane is an important greenhouse gas, and over the last 200 years its concentration in the atmosphere has doubled. But, until now, its low levels... View News Article (2000-05-10)

Sometimes dry soils yield more clouds
Symposium of the American Meteorological Society in Wageningen (The Netherlands) Cloud formation does not always follow beaten tracks. The formation of low clouds during nice weather conditions will normally take place above moist soils. Under specific atmospheric conditions, which can occur in Europe, drier soils yield more clouds, according to a study of the American meteorologist Mike Ek and... View News Article (2002-07-12)

An unexpected outcome of atmospheric CO2 enrichment
Unseen belowground interactions impact the composition of natural plant communities. Mycorrhizae, symbiotic associations between soil fungi and plant roots, help plants acquire soil nutrients but also drain substantial carbon from plants. Whether mycorrhizae help or hinder plant growth depends upon the balance between nutrient benefits and carbon costs. Mycorrhizae can structure plant communities... View News Article (2003-05-22)

New laboratory to study the oceans and air
Almost two-thirds of the planet is ocean and this has a major impact on our lives. Now the University of East Anglia (UEA) will be home to the world's first facility dedicated to the study of chemical ocean-air interactions which are important in regulating Earth's climate. Examples include ocean uptake of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and production of tiny atmospheric particles from... View News Article (2003-11-21)

Clemson scientists launch rockets to test atmospheric conditions
Clemson University space physicists have traveled around the world to launch rockets to test atmospheric conditions. View News Article (2009-02-27)

The Mechanisms of Atmospheric Nucleation
Aerosol particles are ubiquitous in Earth's atmosphere, influencing the quality of life through their climatic and health effects and by affecting visibility. In recent years, the formation and growth of nanometer-scale particles have been observed in situ in many different atmospheric environments, including urban plumes, clean arctic air, the continental boundary layer, and coastal...

Study explores atmospheric impact of declining Arctic sea ice
There is growing recognition that reductions in Arctic sea ice levels will influence patterns of atmospheric circulation both within and beyond the Arctic. View News Article (2013-05-29)

New Director for the NERC Centres for Atmospheric Science
Professor Stephen Mobbs from the University of Leeds has been appointed as the next Director of the NERC Centres for Atmospheric Science (NCAS). He will take up his new role on 1 July 2005. View News Article (2005-04-15)
