How carbon made it out of the ocean and into the atmosphere has remained one of the most important mysteries of science. A new study, provides some of the most compelling evidence for how it happened -- a 'flushing' of the deep Pacific Ocean caused by the acceleration of water circulation patterns that begin around […]
Researchers are looking to the geologic past to make future projections about climate change. Their research focuses on the ancient Tethys Ocean (site of the present-day Mediterranean Sea) and provides a benchmark for present and future climate and ocean models.
The Earth's building blocks seem to be built from 'pretty normal' ingredients, according to researchers working with the world's most powerful telescopes. Scientists have measured the compositions of 18 different planetary systems from up to 456 light years away and compared them to ours, and found that many elements are present in similar proportions to […]
Scientists have developed an accelerated way to produce magnesite, a mineral which can capture the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, at room temperature. Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere would slow global warming. This work takes a different approach to existing processes, and may make it economically viable, but it is at an […]
Absolutely amazing to see @OpenUniversity, @OU_EEE & @OU_STEM module @S209geology is now tweeting. I am very sure you will keep us @OUstudents entertained with your tweets. @YorkshireOUGS @wessexougs @ougsesc @OUGeologyIE @LondonOUGS @SouthWestOUGS.
Not often one sees a PhD as beautiful as this - Rachel Pedder-Smith on botanical illustration (her own work) @KewScience. It is also an exceptionally interesting read: https://t.co/C9dv0fyU43 #BotanicalArt #Herbarium #SciArt
