Researchers Study How Forests Are Changing in Response to Global Warming – Noozhawk

Warm sunshine streams through the canopies of two blue oaks in central California. (Anna Trugman) As the climate is changing, so too are the world’s forests. From the misty redwoods in the west to the Blue Ridge forest of Appalachia,…

Using fiber optics to advance safe and renewable energy

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Fiber optic cables, it turns out, can be incredibly useful scientific sensors. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have studied them for use in carbon sequestration, groundwater mapping, earthquake detection, and monitoring of Arctic permafrost thaw. Now they have been awarded new grants to develop fiber optics for two novel uses: monitoring offshore wind operations and underground natural gas storage.

As the ocean warms, marine species relocate toward the poles

Since pre-industrial times, the world’s oceans have warmed by an average of one degree Celsius (1°C). Now researchers report that those rising temperatures have led to widespread changes in the population sizes of marine species. The researchers found a general pattern of species having increasing numbers on their poleward sides and losses toward the equator.

Water, carbon and nitrogen were not immediately supplied to Earth

Scientists present important new findings regarding the origin of oceans and life on Earth. Measurements on the oldest preserved mantle rocks from Greenland show that — contrary to previous assumptions — the elements necessary for the evolution of life were not delivered to Earth until very late in the planet’s formation.
