Increased environmental carbon levels - the good news!
Increasing carbon levels can be a good thing in some cases: scientists at the University of Durham propose that higher levels of inorganic carbon can have a positive influence on human health. View News Article (2006-04-03)

Global warming may not have ended Ice-Age, says research
Scientists at the University of Sheffield have used fossilised leaves to determine the effect of greenhouse gases on the end of the Ice Age 300m years ago, according to an article published in PNAS. The study, led by Professor David Beerling, examined fossilised leaves to determine how much carbon dioxide was in the air at various periods during the ice age. Leaves have pores on their surface...

Higher carbon dioxide, lack of nitrogen limit plant growth
Earth's plant life will not be able to "store" excess carbon from rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels as well as scientists once thought because plants likely cannot get enough nutrients, such as nitrogen, when there are higher levels of carbon dioxide View News Article (2006-04-13)

Carbon turns over much faster through basal food-chain levels in aquatic than in terrestrial ecosystems
Global temperatures have increased dramatically over the past century, which is causing major impacts on climate patterns, ocean circulation and wildlife preservation. The increase in temperature is largely due to a rise of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, of which CO2 is one of the most important. To understand the capacity of ecosystems to sequester excesses of atmospheric CO2 and... View News Article (2004-02-25)

Role of Silica in Climate Cycles
New research from the University of East Anglia (UEA) has demonstrated that the compound silica was not solely responsible for changes in carbon dioxide levels during past Ice Ages. It is already known from scientific research that during past Ice Ages increased amounts of silica, a common component of wind-blown dust, were deposited in the ocean. This nutrient may have drastically altered the... View News Article (2001-06-21)

Plants' fungi allies may not help store climate change's extra carbon
Fungi found in plants may not be the answer to mitigating climate change by storing additional carbon in soils as some previously thought, according to an international team of plant biologists.  View News Article (2012-08-31)

Discovery of the specific properties of graphite-based carbon materials
University of Tsukuba Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences Associate Professor Takahiro Kondo and Professor Junji Nakamura, in cooperation with Researcher Donghui Guo and Professor Susumu Okada of the same faculty, have shown from detailed measurements that in atomically flat areas of a nitrogen-doped graphite surface in the absence of external magnetic fields, Landau levels manifest...

Geochemist raises questions about carbon sequestration at Goldschmidt Conference
As carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere rise, policy makers and scientists are looking at new ways to tackle the problems associated with the greenhouse gas.  View News Article (2010-06-16)

Can biofuels be sustainable?
With oil prices skyrocketing, the search is on for efficient and sustainable biofuels. Research published this month in Agronomy Journal examines one biofuel crop contender: corn stover.  View News Article (2008-08-20)

Transcontinental wildfire emissions monitored from space
Using data from the SCIAMACHY instrument aboard ESA's environmental satellite Envisat, scientists have determined that the carbon monoxide hovering over Australia during the wildfire season largely originated from South American wildfires some 13 000 kilometres away. View News Article (2007-05-09)
