Study finds limited sign of soil adaptation to climate warming

While scientists and policy experts debate the impacts of global warming, the Earth's soil is releasing roughly nine times more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than all human activities combined. This huge carbon flux from ...

Which genes are crucial for the energy metabolism of Archaea?

A research team led by Christa Schleper from the University of Vienna succeeded in isolating the first ammonia-oxidizing archaeon from soil: Nitrososphaera viennensis—the 'spherical ammonia oxidizer from Vienna.' In the ...

Cheaper, more effective cleanup of abandoned oil and gas wells

Abandoned oil and gas wells are a significant source of greenhouse gases but there are so many scattered across the United States that stopping the leaks presents a huge cost for states. Now, a research team including scientists ...

Researchers use acoustic waves to move fluids at the nanoscale

A team of mechanical engineers at the University of California San Diego has successfully used acoustic waves to move fluids through small channels at the nanoscale. The breakthrough is a first step toward the manufacturing ...
