Another modeling shortcoming…

From the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies Carbon cycle models underestimate indirect role of animals Animal populations can have a far more significant impact on carbon storage and exchange in regional ecosystems than is typically recognized by global carbon models, according to a new paper authored by researchers at the Yale School of…

Carbon sequestration driver: Spiders, why did it have to be spiders?

From the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies New study shows predators affect the carbon cycle A new study shows that the predator-prey relationship can affect the flow of carbon through an ecosystem. This previously unmeasured influence on the environment may offer a new way of looking at biodiversity management and carbon storage for…

Study: Getting the S out of jet fuel may cool the climate

This study from Yale University  seems contradictory to what we know about aerosols. Generally more aerosols like SO2 cool the climate, but in this case they are saying “it’s offset by the cooling effect of nitrate that forms from nitrogen oxides in jet exhaust.” Interesting. Removing sulfur from jet fuel cools climate A Yale study…

This is seriously fluxed up

From Yale University  pick which one is the true message of this press release: 1. The title of the press release: US rivers and streams saturated with carbon. 2. The pointless statistic: Rivers and streams in the United States are releasing enough carbon into the atmosphere to fuel 3.4 million car trips to the moon.…
