Huge atmospheric observation networks comprised of a variety of platforms including satellites have been developed to […]

Deep sea coral time machines reveal ancient CO2 burps — ScienceDaily

The fossilised remains of ancient deep-sea corals may act as time machines providing new insights into the effect the ocean has on rising CO2 levels, according to new research carried out by the Universities of Bristol, St Andrews and Nanjing and published today [16 October] in Science Advances. Rising CO2 levels helped end the last […]
