  • Spatial heterogeneity in soils contributes to soil organic carbon persistence. Photo: Stefano Manzoni New soil models may ease atmospheric CO2, climate change 2020-07-29 To remove carbon dioxide from the Earth’s atmosphere in an effort to slow climate change, scientists must get their hands dirty and peek underground.
  • 3D-3D topotactic transformations can be triggered by deep dehydration, providing a novel approach for generation of new zeolite structures. New structural transformation phenomenon can break the way in searching for novel materials 2020-07-28 All over the world science is looking for new materials to tackle environmental problems. Scientists have now found a new way of generating novel zeolites, which are widely used for producing basic chemicals and recently drawn interests in CO2 capture. The route is based on the discovery of a structural transformation phenomenon introduced by deep dehydration – allowing brand new materials to be obtained from existing ones.
  • Clouds over the Indian ocean, observed with the instrument MODIS at the NASA satellite Aqua. Photo: NASA Pristine environments offer a window to our cloudy past 2020-07-28 A new study uses satellite data over the Southern Hemisphere to understand global cloud composition during the industrial revolution. This research tackles one of the largest uncertainties in today’s climate models — the long-term effect of tiny atmospheric particles on climate change.
