Agricultural Production Affects Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Cycle | Climatology, Geophysics | Sci-News.com

… University. Prof Friedl and his colleagues gathered global production statistics for four leading crops – corn, wheat, rice and soybeans – that represent about 64 percent of all calories consumed worldwide. They found that production of these crops in the Northern Hemisphere has more than doubled since 1961, and translates to about a billion metric tons of carbon captured and released each year. “These croplands are ecosystems on steroids. They occupy about 6 percent of the vegetated land …

Greenland Ice Sheet Yielding its Secrets | Geophysics | Sci-News.com

… Sciences. “This information is crucial for developing and validating numerical models that predict how the ice sheet may change and contribute to global sea level over the next few hundred years,” said co-author Prof Cornelis J. van der Veen of the University of Kansas. Dr Csatho, Prof van der Veen and their colleagues produced the first comprehensive study of how the Greenland Ice Sheet is losing mass based on satellite and airborne data at nearly 100,000 locations across Greenland. …
