Scientists say large amounts of African dust may be having major effects on the hurricane season, ocean organisms and human health. African dust particles become airborne during storms and travel anywhere from 7,000 to 10,000 kilometers to reach the
all the oceans have boiled away, the clouds rain sulphuric acid and the atmosphere at ground level is hot enough to melt lead. The only comfort is that if such a transformation does affect the Earth, it probably won't be for a billion years or so.
Spain, increasing the threat of desertification but providing more energy for the country's growing solar industry the largest in Europe. According to a study the University of Girona and the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich solar
A tiny aerosol particle called "black carbon" can float in the atmosphere for just a few weeks and profoundly alter the weather...Writes Liz O'Connell on SciLogs : Minuscule dark sooty aerosol particles called black carbon absorb solar radiation.
Solar radiation management a cheap, easy fix for climate change the could wreck the planet by Paul Woodward on February 11, 2013 Climate change has resulted from unplanned geoengineering for most of the last two centuries, we have been pumping vast
Researchers at the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) have developed a method for achieving this precisely. The exact location of Curiosity on the surface of Mars is determined using data transmitted from its antennas as well as the space
Mercury, has solar sails that propel the craft with solar radiation pressure, thus requiring less fuel for propulsion. It is very important that we develop and test a few deflection techniques sufficiently so that we know we have a viable toolbox'
The initial force from the pellets would bump an asteroid off course; over time, the sun's photons would deflect the asteroid even more. Paek's paper detailing this unconventional strategy won the 2012 Move an Asteroid Technical Paper Competition,
If you feel your days are not so bright any more, it could be because even sunlight has joined the ranks of industrialists, lampooners and dissenters who appear to be shunning Calcutta. Sunlight reaching the ground has decreased across India over the
Some scientists are studying ways to temporarily reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the earth to potentially stave off some of the worst effects of climate change. But a new computer analysis of future climate change that considers emissions
