Climate-change researchers at the University of Washington (UW), in considering a range of mitigation scenarios, say that the injection of sulfate particles into the earth's atmosphere to reflect sunlight away from the planet's surface to curb
First, scientists demonstrated that ambitious plans to cool the planet by dimming solar radiation could have unintended and unwelcome consequences. And now they have shown something even more alarming: any programme to block the sunlight could
The solar plant, which will use molten salts tower technology, will have an advanced storage system enabling it to generate electricity for up to 17.5 hours without direct solar radiation. This plant will strengthen Abengoa's position in and forms
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'
