New research shows that the North Atlantic will prove a bumpier ride for airliners from increased clear air turbulence from a warming atmosphere

A More Energetic Atmosphere Leading to More Turbulence for Aviation

Clear air turbulence is the bane of air crew and passenger alike. Unlike easily recognizable turbulent air from mountain ranges and clouds, clear air turbulence is invisibile both to pilot and radar until it is encountered – and the drink ends up on your lap. This sort of turbulence, lurking in the stratosphere where airliners operate, comes from the energy…

Plants are hard at work absorbing carbon

New Study Shows Plants Absorb Carbon From Atmosphere Faster Than Perviously Thought

New research just published in the journal Nature say that plants, trees, and soil are absorbing carbon about 25 percent faster than scientists previously thought. A team of scientists headed-up by Lisa Welp-Smith of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography have developed a new, more accurate, method of determining how much plants absorb and release carbon. The study estimates that global…
