Wetlands International Launches Program in Globally Unique Wetland System

During the World Water Forum, Wetlands International launched a 10-year program in the second-largest wetland system in South America (after the Amazon): La Plata Basin. Corredor Azul will focus on mobilizing efforts to implement alternative development paths for the region by bringing together civil society organisations, the private sector, academia and governments. The program will

Far Northern Permafrost May Unleash Carbon Within Decades

Permafrost in the coldest northern Arctic—formerly thought to be at least temporarily shielded from global warming by its extreme environment—will thaw enough to become a permanent source of carbon to the atmosphere in this century, with the peak transition occurring in 40 to 60 years, according to a new NASA-led study. The study calculated that

Ash from Dinosaur-Era Volcanoes Linked with Shale Oil, Gas

Nutrient-rich ash from an enormous flare-up of volcanic eruptions toward the end of the dinosaurs’ reign kicked off a chain of events that led to the formation of shale gas and oil fields from Texas to Montana, according to a new study by Rice University geologists that appears in Nature Publishing’s online journal Scientific Reports.

USGS: Waterbirds at Risk in Chesapeake Bay

Manmade structures built along Chesapeake Bay shorelines to protect against sea-level rise, storm surge and erosion have been found to negatively impact waterbirds, according to a USGS study. In many coastal regions, shorelines are “armored” with wooden, concrete or steel bulkhead walls or riprap borders that consist of piles of large stones or boulders. Shoreline

White Paper Provides Insight on Atmospheric Methane’s Impact on Global Warming

A new white paper developed by GTI’s Center for Methane Research (CMR) addresses questions regarding the impact of atmospheric methane in global warming—technically identified as radiative forcing—and what role fossil fuels play. The paper integrates greenhouse gas radiative forcing data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, along with national and international annual greenhouse gas

Farewell to Pioneering Pollution Sensor

On Jan. 31, 2018, NASA ended the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer’s (TES) almost 14-year career of discovery. Launched in 2004 on NASA’s Aura spacecraft, TES was the first instrument designed to monitor ozone in the lowest layers of the atmosphere directly from space. Its high-resolution observations led to new measurements of atmospheric gases that have altered

Reducing the Footprint of a Greenhouse Gas More Potent than Carbon Dioxide

USC scientists have unlocked a new, more-efficient pathway for converting methane—a potent gas contributing to climate change—directly into basic chemicals for manufacturing plastics, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. In research published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, chemists at USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute say they have found a way to help utilize this abundant
