Carbon dioxide mixes with rainwater to create carbonic acid, which breaks down rocks. Sprinkling rocks across croplands could boost the conversion of carbon dioxide.
New research finds that subduction along the seafloor absorbs carbon dioxide, which helps explain why the climate fluctuates over millions of years.
Using satellite data, researchers say sea levels could rise by half an inch a year by the end of the century, which is double current projections.
The tundra of Eurasia and North America contains twice as much mercury as the rest of the world combined.
Researchers placed mesh enclosures on reefs to keep coral larvae from floating away, which helped to form colonies.
One-third of the more than 150 Asia-Pacific coral reefs surveyed in a new study were littered with plastic, further threatening already depleted marine ecosystems.
CancerSEEK, which was 70 percent accurate in a human trial, could be major breakthrough in early identification of cancers and where in the body they are located.
The added weight from melting land ice has depressed the seafloor about 0.005 inches annually between 1993 and 2014, demonstrating the large-scale impacts of climate change.
California researchers engineered cells from mice and humans to fold, coil, and ripple, which could advance efforts to grow tissue and organs.
Scientists have long sought to unravel the mysteries of water, and researchers at Stockholm University say the compound's odd behavior stems from its ability to exist in two, liquid states.
