This study has been headed by Dr Ji Nie (Assistant Professor at the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Peking University).
A new study by the University of Surrey has shown that Carbon dioxide (CO2) can be captured from the encircling atmosphere and reprocessed into beneficial chemicals generally made from fossil fuels.
The Siberian Arctic experienced an unusual number of fires in 2019 and 2020. This raised concerns in the scientific community, as the Arctic has large areas of permafrost, a permanently frozen layer of subsoil that accumulates large amounts of carbon. Fires damage the permafrost and contribute to the release of carbon emissions in the form of greenhouse gases.
A new study has shown that ongoing global warming is creating conditions that will probably cause considerable increases in Arctic wildfires within the decades to come.
The common challenges that are faced by humans are due to the increasing global warming and extreme weather. This directly impacts the health of individuals and even poses severe threats to lives.
Ectothermic organisms are severely affected by global warming. Their body temperature and their biochemical processes rely on sunlight and ambient temperature.
NASA has recently announced that its all-electric aircraft, the X-57 Maxwell, has overcome yet another obstacle on its journey to becoming a viable alternative to conventional aircraft powered by fossil fuels.
UM Rosenstiel School researchers investigated a pattern of temperature change in a stretch of water in the subpolar North Atlantic region known as a warming hole, which has been cooling over the past century, using a cutting-edge climate model.
The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC), a system of ocean currents that carry warm water from the tropics into the North Atlantic and transport cold water from the northern to the southern hemisphere, is a fundamental mechanism for the regulation of Earth's climate.
A research study just published in Nature Reviews provides new information about how much the planet has warmed and what warming we may expect in the coming decades.
