Larger, more frequent fires in boreal forest threaten previously protected carbon stores, international research team reports in Nature

Northern Arizona University

Northern Arizona University postdoc Xanthe Walker led a team that found that legacy carbon, while it remained protected from combustion in older tree stands where the historical fire return interval persisted, it burned in tree stands younger than 60 years old, increasing the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.

Newswise: Origin of Massive Methane Reservoir Identified

Origin of Massive Methane Reservoir Identified

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

New research from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) published Aug. 19, 2019, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science provides evidence of the formation and abundance of abiotic methane—methane formed by chemical reactions that don’t involve organic matter—on Earth and shows how the gases could have a similar origin on other planets and moons, even those no longer home to liquid water. Researchers had long noticed methane released from deep-sea vents. But while the gas is plentiful in the atmosphere where it’s produced by living things, the source of methane at the seafloor was a mystery.

Climate is Changing Faster Than Animal Adaptation

Cornell University

An international team of scientists reviewed more than 10,000 published climate change studies and has reached a sobering conclusion. Birds and other animals cannot adapt fast enough to keep pace with climate change, throwing species survival in doubt.

Newswise: Amazon Rainforest Absorbing Less Carbon Than Expected

Amazon Rainforest Absorbing Less Carbon Than Expected

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

An international team of scientists, including climate scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, found that accounting for phosphorus-deficient soils reduced projected carbon dioxide uptake by an average of 50% in the Amazon, compared to current estimates based on previous climate models that did not take into account phosphorus deficiency.
