Underwater robots in the form of gliders will navigate through the North Sea taking measurements, such as salinity and temperature under a collaboration between National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and the Met Office for improvement in collection and distribution of...
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed that the tritium level in the fourth batch of diluted treated water, which Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) started discharging on 28 February 2024, is far below the Japan’s operational limit.  Experts stationed...
A new study examined interactions between biomolecules and clay minerals in the soil and shed light on factors that influence trapping of plant-based carbon in the soil. It was found that charge on biomolecules and clay minerals, structure of...
A recent study on plastic pollution beyond the micron level has unambiguously detected and identified nanoplastics in real-life samples of bottled water. It was found that the exposure to the micro-nano plastics from regular bottled water is in the...
The United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) has concluded with an agreement named The UAE Consensus, that sets out an ambitious climate agenda to keep 1.5°C within reach. This calls on Parties to transition away from fossil fuels to reach...
The 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), popularly known as United Nations Climate Change Conference, currently being held in UAE has announced several initiatives and partnerships aimed at sustainable urban development which...
The 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) or United Nations Climate Change Conference is being held at Expo City, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. It began on 30th November 2023 and will continue...
Evolution and extinction of new species have gone hand in hand since life began on Earth. However, there have been at least five episodes of large-scale extinctions of life-forms in the past 500 million years. In these episodes, more...
Global warming and climate change has led to record heatwaves in the UK posing significant health risks especially to elderly and people with chronic diseases. As a result, heatwave excess mortality has risen. Indoor overheating has become an...
With its first view of Earth, NASA’s EMIT Mission achieves milestone towards better understanding of climate effects of mineral dust in the atmosphere.   On 27 July 2022, NASA’s Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (EMIT), installed on the International...
Fire was reported in Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) in South-East of Ukraine amidst ongoing crisis in the region. The site is not affected. There is no reported change in radiation levels at the plant which is protected by...
Sea level along USA coastlines will rise about 25 to 30 cm on average above current levels over the next 30 years. Consequently, tide and storm surge heights will increase and reach further inland worsening coastal flooding pattern. The additional...
Being both carbon-free and nuclear-free is not going to be easy for Germany and European Union (EU) when trying to meet the target of reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to keep temperature rises within 1.5oC. Over 75% of...
Climate change as a result of global warming attributed to excessive greenhouse emissions in the atmosphere is a serious threat to the societies across the world. In response, the stakeholders are working towards reduction of carbon emissions in the atmosphere...
UK Space Agency will support two new projects. The first envisages using satellite to monitor and map heat in locations at greatest risk from climate change. Development of a prototype Climate Risk Index tool (CRISP) is the second project...
Carbon emission from commercial aircrafts could be reduced by about 16 % through better use of wind direction   Commercial aircrafts use lot of fuels to generate sufficient power to sustain flight. The burning of aviation fuels contributes in greenhouse gases in...
The rate of ice loss for Earth has increased by 57% from 0.8 to 1.2 trillion tonnes per year since 1990s. As a result, the sea level has risen by about 35 mm. The majority of the ice loss is attributed...
Notre-Dame de Paris, the iconic cathedral suffered serious damages due to fire on 15 April 2019. The spire was destroyed and the structure considerably weakened due to flames that raged for hours. Some amount of lead volatilized and deposited...
Plastic pollution poses a major threat to ecosystems worldwide especially marine environment as most of the plastics used and discarded reach finally in rivers and oceans. This is responsible for the imbalance of marine ecosystems causing harm to oceanic...
Death Valley, California recorded a high temperature of 130°F (54.4C)) at 3:41 PM PDT on Sunday, August 16, 2020.  This temperature was measured at Furnace Creek near the Visitors Center using a National Weather Service owned automated observation system. This...
‘State of the UK Climate’ is annually published by the Met Office. This provides an up-to-date assessment of the UK climate. The 2019 report is published as a special issue of the International Journal of Climatology.   The 2019 report published on 31...
Hidden, oceanic internal waves have been found to play a role in deep-sea biodiversity. In contrast to the surface waves, the internal waves are formed as a result of thermal contraction in layers of the water column and help...
The three companies SecurEnergy GmbH from Berlin, Photon Energy Solar GmbH, and IWE group from Denmark have combined their common skills and expertise to become Securenergy solutions AG The three companies SecurEnergy GmbH from Berlin, Photon Energy Solar GmbH, and...
Temperatures in big cities are rising due to ‘urban heat island effect’ and this is increasing the intensity and frequency of heat events. Study uses computational modeling to assess characteristics associated with increased temperatures across land-uses in cities to...
Study has calculated energy-return-on-investment (EROI) ratios for fossil fuels from first extraction stage till the last stage when the usable fuel is ready. It is concluded that fossil fuels EROI ratios are low, declining and are similar to renewable...
