Princeton paleomagnetists put controversy to rest
Princeton - Princeton Princeton University scientists have shown that, in ancient times, the Earth's magnetic field was structured like the two-pole model of today, suggesting that the methods geoscientists use to reconstruct the geography of early land masses on the globe are accurate.

Oldest hominid skeleton provides new evidence for human evolution
Oldest hominid skeleton provides new evidence for human evolution
Partial skeleton of Ardipithecus ramidus, a hominid species living about 4.4 million years ago in Ethiopia. This female stood about 1.2 meters high. Eleven papers from an international team of authors published in print and online in this special issue describe the anatomy of this species and its habitat and discuss the implications for understanding human evolution.

Warming Ocean Contributes to Global Warming
The warming of an Arctic current over the last 30 years has triggered the release of methane, broken down from methane hydrate stored in the sediment beneath the seabed. Scientists at the University of Birmingham, working in collaboration with researchers from the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, Royal Holloway London and IFM-Geomar in Germany have found that more than 250 plumes of bubbles of methane gas are rising from the seabed of the West Spitsbergen continental margin in the Arctic, in a depth range of 150 to 400 metres.

Consulting with Clouds: A Clear Role in Climate Change
Consulting with Clouds: A Clear Role in Climate Change
July 30, 2009 — Virginia Key — The role of clouds in climate change has been a major question for decades. As the earth warms under increasing greenhouse gases, it is not known whether clouds will dissipate, letting in more of the sun's heat energy and making the earth warm even faster, or whether cloud cover will increase, blocking the Sun's rays and actually slowing down global warming.

University sheds light on plant growth
Researchers at the University of Sheffield have uncovered what determines how fast plants grow, and how evolution has adjusted this speed limit over millions of years, as the levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) has changed. Dr Peter Franks and Professor David Beerling from the University´s Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, have shed light on why some plants grow much faster than others under the same conditions.
