The repository for kelp forest projects monitors the global progress towards restoring our underwater forests.
American farms produce food, animal feed and biofuel for the world. Scientists from Argonne National Laboratory are providing valuable tools to help big agriculture make decisions that maximize potential but cancel out greenhouse gas emissions.
Agriculture can be a powerful weapon in the battle against climate change, but the U.S. needs a Human Genome Project-like investment in research and development to seize that opportunity, Benjamin Z. Houlton, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, testified June 15 to the U.S. House Agriculture Committee.
A new study provides a framework to boost crop growth by incorporating a strategy adopted from a fast-growing species of green algae. The algae, known as Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, contain an organelle called the pyrenoid that speeds up the conversion of carbon, which the algae absorb from the air, into a form that the organisms can use for growth.
Sheffield has received Tree Cities of the World recognition, bringing a wealth of benefits to local communities, now and into the future.
A team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota has significantly improved the performance of numerical predictions for agricultural nitrous oxide emissions. The first-of-its-kind knowledge-guided machine learning model is 1,000 times faster than current systems and could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
The amount of methane – a greenhouse gas 30 times more potent at trapping heat than carbon dioxide over 100 years – leaking from a huge U.S. oil and gas producing region is several times greater than the federal government estimates, according to a new study led by Stanford University.
According to climate experts at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York, rooftop gardens and vegetation can help alleviate some of the city’s extreme heat.
With millions facing hunger around the world, Flinders University researchers are looking into novel properties of edible plants which could enhance future food crop production.
Octopus Renewables, the fund management specialist in Octopus Energy Group’s generation business, has signed four deals to ramp up wind power generation across Europe to help deliver Net Zero.
