The physical concept of climate forcing

The physical concept of climate forcing

Since the beginning of the debate on global climate change, scientists, economists, and policy makers alike have been using ‘climate forcing’ as a convenient measure for evaluating climate change. Researchers… Read more »

Ice Shelves Disappearing on Antarctic Peninsula

Ice Shelves Disappearing on Antarctic Peninsula

Ice shelves are retreating in the southern section of the Antarctic Peninsula due to climate change. This could result in glacier retreat and sea-level rise if warming continues, threatening coastal… Read more »

Potential effects of global warming on the biota of the Australian Alps

Potential effects of global warming on the biota of the Australian Alps

This initial report summarises current knowledge of predicted climate change effects on alpine and subalpine biota, with a focus on Kosciuszko National Park in south-eastern NSW. It outlines some possible… Read more »

‘Building a Future for Wildlife’? Evaluating the contribution of the world zoo and aquarium community to in situ conservation

In light of the United Nations declaring 2010 as the ‘International Year of Biodiversity’, we carried out an audit of in situ conservation projects supported by the world zoo and… Read more »

Morphological and compositional changes in the skeletons of new coral recruits reared in acidified seawater: Insights into the biomineralization response to ocean acidification

Morphological and compositional changes in the skeletons of new coral recruits reared in acidified seawater: Insights into the biomineralization response to ocean acidification

We reared primary polyps (new recruits) of the common Atlantic golf ball coral Favia fragum for 8 days at 25°C in seawater with aragonite saturation states ranging from ambient (Ω… Read more »

Low-energy sodium hydroxide recovery for CO2 capture from atmospheric air— Thermodynamic analysis

Low-energy sodium hydroxide recovery for CO2 capture from atmospheric air— Thermodynamic analysis

To reduce the risks of climate change, atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases must be lowered. Direct capture of CO2 from ambient air, “aircapture”, might be one of the few methods… Read more »

The Coral Reef Crisis: scientific justification for critical CO2 threshold levels of < 350ppm

The Coral Reef Crisis: scientific justification for critical CO2 threshold levels of < 350ppm

On the 6th July, 2009, the Royal Society, the Zoological Society of London and the International Programme on the State of the Ocean facilitated a Coral Reef Crisis meeting to… Read more »

Melting permafrost could trigger ‘unstoppable’ climate change

Melting permafrost could trigger ‘unstoppable’ climate change

By Louise Gray Melting Arctic permafrost could trigger “unstoppable climate change” as it releases ever increasing levels of methane gas, scientists have warned. A range of studies have found that … Read more »

Major bleaching events can lead to increased thermal tolerance in corals

Major bleaching events can lead to increased thermal tolerance in corals

Climate change is a major threat to coral reef ecosystems worldwide. A key determinant of the fate of reef corals in a warming climate is their capacity to tolerate increasing… Read more »

Global mapping of ecosystem services and conservation priorities

Global mapping of ecosystem services and conservation priorities

Global efforts to conserve biodiversity have the potential to deliver economic benefits to people (i.e., “ecosystem services”). However, regions for which conservation benefits both biodiversity and ecosystem services cannot be… Read more »

  • Information For Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers

    Oxidizers are an important component of any industrial process. If you have any exhaust gases whatsoever, you’re going to want an oxidizer to reduce your carbon output and leave the air around your industrial center cleaner. In many locations, some… Read more »

  • The University of Southern California (USC)

    It might seem like the idea of the classic librarian is fading, but that is not the case. The role of the modern librarian is simply evolving, and the University of Southern California understands those changes and is helping to… Read more »

  • Advanced Geosciences Resistivity Survey

    If you look at a current Advanced Geosciences resistivity survey, you will notice that it is probably in 2D. This gives you a good sense of how the ground changes as you go deeper. It can really paint a picture… Read more »
