Carbon dioxide News

erosion 11th April Carbon Burial
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.

exhaust 20th December Carbon Copy
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.

flame 20th December Negative Net Emissions
Pete Smith, of Aberdeen University, and colleagues have quantified the potential for negative net emissions techniques, such as biomass-burning carbon capture and storage.

soil 2nd November Eroding Sinks
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.
