Study reveals salps play outsize role in damping global warming
Humans continue to amplify global warming by emitting billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year.
Slime for the climate, delivered by brown algae
Brown algae are true wonder plants when it comes to absorbing carbon dioxide from the air.
Arctic carbon conveyor belt discovered
Every year, the cross-shelf transport of carbon-rich particles from the Barents and Kara Seas could bind up to 3.6 million metric tons of CO2 in the Arctic deep sea for millennia.
Earth can regulate its own temperature over millennia, new study finds
The Earth’s climate has undergone some big changes, from global volcanism to planet-cooling ice ages and dramatic shifts in solar radiation. And yet life, for the last 3.7 billion years, has kept on beating.
How ‘viral dark matter’ may help mitigate climate change
A deep dive into the 5,500 marine RNA virus species scientists recently identified has found that several may help drive carbon absorbed from the atmosphere to permanent storage on the ocean floor.
