Storage and release of organic carbon from glaciers and ice sheets

Article Abstract: Glaciers and polar ice sheets store and release a small but important pool of organic carbon. The changing climate is making glaciers an increasingly important driver of carbon dynamics in aquatic ecosystems. from Nature Geoscience – AOP – nature.com science feeds Click Here To Read Full Article Visit Nature Geoscience – AOP –…

Climate science: Pacemakers of warming

Article Abstract: In the first decades of the twentieth century, the Earth warmed rapidly. A coral-based climate proxy record of westerly winds over the equatorial Pacific suggests that wind strength and warming rate were linked, as they are today. from Nature Geoscience – AOP – nature.com science feeds Click Here To Read Full Article Visit…

Biogeochemistry: Old carbon mobilized

Article Abstract: Soil contains aged organic carbon that can be hundreds or thousands of years old. Human disturbance in small and large watersheds is mobilizing some of this fossil carbon from soils to aquatic systems. from Nature Geoscience – AOP – nature.com science feeds Click Here To Read Full Article Visit Nature Geoscience – AOP…

Turbulent week for global climate policy leaves many questions

Article Abstract: They came, they saw, they cuddled koalas and world leaders then largely ignored the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s instructions to ignore the global, intergenerational and morally challenging kerfuffle over climate change. All in all the last seven days have proven to be momentous for climate change policy – both at the Brisbane…

How The Air We Breathe Was Created By Earth’s Tectonic Plates

Article Abstract: Environment Photo credit: Volcanism, driven by plate tectonics, built Earth’s atmosphere to make a habitable planet. Simon Redfern/University of Cambridge, Author provided How is it that Earth developed an atmosphere that made the development of life possible? A study published in the journal Nature Geoscience links the origins of Earth’s nitrogen-rich atmosphere to…
