11th April Carbon
Zhenganag Wang and colleagues in Belgium have estimated that up
to one third of carbon lost from land due to human activities has
actually ended up in ocean sediments rather than in the atmosphere.
20th December Carbon
Global carbon dioxide emissions in 2015 are likely to be the same
as those in 2014 according to a new analysis in Nature Climate Change.
It is unclear whether this is a short term hiatus.
20th December Negative
Pete Smith, of Aberdeen University, and colleagues have quantified
the potential for negative net emissions techniques, such as biomass-burning
carbon capture and storage.
2nd November Eroding
Adrian Chappell and colleagues at CSIRO in Australia have assessd
the imporantance of soil erosion in carbon stocks, fluxes and sinks.
They highlight its global significance for climate change mitigation.
17th April 2015 Acid
Rachel Wood and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh have shown
how oceans became much more acidic 250 million years ago, with a
rate of increase in CO2 similar to that occuring today.
1st April 2015 Greenest
Dave Reay and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh have launched
a new online MSc in Carbon Management. Entirely delivered via distance
learning it may well be the greenest Masters ever.
