Methane stands as the Earth's second-most prevalent greenhouse gas, and its emissions have been swiftly and enigmatically escalating since 2007.
Despite their tiny sizes, aerosols, such as sea salt, dust, and ash, play a giant role in shaping weather and climate.
Construction has begun in Antarctica for the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) with specialists arriving at Rothera Research Station to progress several projects to secure the future of polar operations and research.
The combined efforts of Oxford researchers and their partners herald a new era in environmental monitoring and climate change mitigation, showcasing the power of AI and space technology in tackling global challenges.
As the planet gets hotter, animal and plant species around the world will be faced with new, potentially unpredictable living conditions, which could alter ecosystems in unprecedented ways.
A team of University of Bristol experts are poised to join the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which will hold the world to account in addressing humanity's most urgent and ambitious challenge.
Every year, the UN organises its global climate change Conference of the Parties, "COP", with the aim to create action to halt climate change and support those vulnerable to the effects of climate change.
Researchers from the University of Oxford have created a tool that uses machine learning and hyperspectral data from Trillium Technologies’ NIO.space to autonomously detect methane plumes on Earth from orbit. This could make it easier to pinpoint methane “super emitters” and allow for more efficient greenhouse gas emission reduction. The journal Nature Scientific Reports has published the findings.
Despite public perception, the Antarctic ozone hole has been remarkably massive and long-lived over the past four years, University of Otago researchers believe chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) aren't the only things to blame.
Technologies for carbon dioxide removal (CDR), which could be vital weapons in the fight against climate change, have advanced in step with other technological advancements throughout the past century. Nevertheless, to fulfill policy targets meant to curb global warming, these technologies need to advance more quickly, according to recent research led by Gregory Nemet, a professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
