NASA study suggests carbon content of temperate forests overestimated — Last modified January 11, 2016 08:36
Digital measurements of millions of trees indicate that previous studies likely overestimate the amount of carbon stored by temperate U.S. forests, according to a new NASA study.
Earth has lost a third of arable land in past 40 years, scientists say — Last modified January 11, 2016 08:28
The world has lost a third of its arable land due to erosion or pollution in the past 40 years, with potentially disastrous consequences as global demand for food soars, scientists have warned.
To save the Earth, better nitrogen use on a hungrier planet must be addressed — Last modified December 21, 2015 14:33
The global population is expected to increase by two to three billion people by 2050, a projection raising serious concerns about sustainable development, biodiversity and food security, but new research led by Princeton University shows that more efficient use of nitrogen fertilizers may address both environmental issues and crop production, but new research led by Princeton University shows that more efficient use of nitrogen fertilizers may address both environmental issues and crop production.

Research follow-up: assessing groundwater beneath Africa — Last modified December 10, 2015 08:10
Alan MacDonald and colleagues published their map of African groundwater resources in Environmental Research Letters three years ago; since then there’s been much progress, including the commencement of the UPGro (Unlocking the Potential of Groundwater for the Poor) programme
The farmer’s dilemma: cut down virgin forest or convert existing pasture — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:15
Consider two oil palm plantations in Peru: row upon row of leafy fronds swaying gently in the breeze. To all intents and purposes the trees at both plantations look the same, the yields achieved are similar and the resulting products are high quality. But dig deeper and some major differences emerge. One of these plantations was, until recently, a tropical forest, and has resulted in much more global warming than the other, which was converted from abandoned pasture land.
Warming slow-down is climate pause — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:10
A slow-down in global warming is not a sign that climate change is ending, university researchers have found.
Oceans slowed global temperature rise, scientists report — Last modified December 02, 2015 09:03
A new study of ocean temperature measurements shows that in recent years, extra heat from greenhouse gases has been trapped in the subsurface waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans, thus accounting for the slowdown in the global surface temperature increase observed during the past decade, researchers say.
