An international team of scientists has developed an accurate record of preindustrial sea level utilizing precisely dated phreatic overgrowths on speleothems that provide a detailed history of Late Holocene sea-level change in Mallorca, Spain, an island in the western Mediterranean Sea.
The Supreme Court has curtailed the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce carbon emissions from power plants in a decision that could limit other federal agencies' regulatory powers.
International research led by Dr. Tom Van der Stocken of the VUB Biology Department examined 21st century changes in ocean-surface temperature, salinity, and density, across mangrove forests worldwide.
From economic impact to policy and climate change implications, a variety of West Virginia University experts can discuss the United States Supreme Court's ruling that curbs the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to limit carbon emissions at existing power plants.
Researchers at University College Cork (UCC) and the Swedish Museum of Natural History examined the end-Permian mass extinction (252 million years ago) that eliminated almost every species on Earth, with entire ecosystems collapsing.
Only a fraction of the material that could be turned into new plastic is currently recycled. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have now demonstrated how the carbon atoms in mixed waste can replace all fossil raw materials in the production of new plastic.
New research highlights how the risk of wildfire is rising globally due to climate change - but also, how human actions and policies can play a critical role in regulating regional impacts.
The decision by the Queensland Government to ban all disposable plastic shopping bags steps up the attack on polluting single use plastic items, with the plan to introduce a Reusable Shopping Bag Standard to ensure all shopping bags available from retailers will be genuinely reusable in the future. Disposable coffee cups are now also centre of the agenda.
Extreme fire weather days have increased in Australia by 56 per cent over the last four decades, according to new research from an international team of scientists, including CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency.
Biotechnology company Ingenza is delighted to announce that its recent partnership with Johnson Matthey has been selected to receive vital funding of £441,632.88 from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as part of the £1 billion fund from the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio to slash emissions and energy costs.
Carbon dioxide must not be discharged into the atmosphere to safeguard the climate. Wherever CO2 generation cannot be controlled, it should be collected and transformed into other materials.
It was the appearance of sea urchins from their hiding spots, not an increase in the urchin population, which caused a spectacular outbreak of kelp-eating sea urchins along California’s Central Coast in 2014 that resulted in a large decline in the region’s kelp forests.
Locally available, emission-free and baseload-capable: geothermal energy is an essential component of the energy transition. With GeoLaB, a new and unique underground research infrastructure, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) are looking to expedite research and prepare the technology for broad application.
High Mountain Asia, the planet's most extensive icy systems outside the polar regions, have the world's largest undeveloped hydropower potential and are seeing numerous dams and reservoirs under construction or planning.
Climate change might be behind an unusual disease outbreak among Antarctic fish.
