Warming homogenizes apparent temperature sensitivity of ecosystem respiration – Science Advances

INTRODUCTION Terrestrial ecosystem respiration (Re), the sum of autotrophic respiration from primary producers and heterotrophic respiration from consumers and detritivores, represents a fundamental biospheric function and plays a major role in the global carbon cycle and growth rate of atmospheric…

Ocean eddies strongly affect global mean sea-level projections – Science Advances

INTRODUCTION Satellite-observed sea-level measurements indicate an ongoing increase in the global mean sea level since the satellite era (1–3). Global mean sea-level rise (GMSLR) threatens low-lying coastal regions, and these regions will benefit strongly from sea-level projections to adapt their…

Particle Mystery Deepens As ‘Strong’ New Evidence Hints at ‘5th’ Force in Nature

Like the four cardinal elements of yore, or the four cardinal directions, there are also four forces of nature—the ones which cause particles to move in different ways, like gravity and electromagnetism. Through discoveries made while working with a fundamental particle called the muon, physicists working in Chicago have recently made the case for a […]

More than 5,000 tons of extraterrestrial dust fall to Earth each year

(CNRS) Every year, our planet encounters dust from comets and asteroids. These interplanetary dust particles pass through our atmosphere and give rise to shooting stars. Some of them reach the ground in the form of micrometeorites. An international program conducted for nearly 20 has determined that 5,200 tons per year of these micrometeorites reach the ground.
