Biochar could clear the air in more ways than one Biochar may cut back native pollution from agriculture by reducing emissions of gas from the soil. Researchers argue that a far better understanding of gas response to biochar can save lives and cash, particularly on farms close to urban areas wherever agricultural emissions contribute to

Greenhouse gases were the main driver of climate throughout the warmest period of the past 66 million years, providing insight into the drivers behind long-term climate change. Antarctica and Australia separated around the end of the Eocene (56 to 22.9 million years ago), creating a deep water passage between them and changing ocean circulation patterns. Some

Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Texas A&M University used satellite images, on-the-ground measurements and a statistical model to determine how much of the earth is covered by rivers and streams. They found that global river and stream surface area is about 45 percent greater than what was indicated by

Global lake evaporation will increase 16 percent by the end of the century as a consequence of climate change, a new Yale study finds. But the specific mechanisms that will drive that phenomenon are not quite what scientists expected. While it is commonly believed that lake evaporation is controlled primarily by incoming solar radiation, the
