Charcoal: Major Missing Piece in the Global Carbon Cycle
Charcoal: Major Missing Piece in the Global Carbon Cycle
Due to its widespread occurrence and tendency to linger in the environment, black carbon may be one of the keys in predicting and mitigating global climate change. In wildfires, typically one third of the burned organic carbon is retained as black carbon residues rather than emitted as greenhouse gases.

Scientists set sail for Greenland’s fjords to unravel mysteries of nutrient cycling
A University of Bristol geochemist is to lead an international team of researchers to Greenland's fjords to find out how glacial meltwaters and coastal sediments are affecting nutrient cycling in the oceans. Glaciers are known to be a source of phosphate, silicon and iron, nutrients that are essential for the growth of the marine algae that form the basis of the food chain in the oceans.

Who shares experiences of climate change in a 1.5°C world and beyond?
A new framework to understand how uneven the effects of a 1.5°C world are for different countries around the world has been published today in Geophysical Research Letters, led by researchers from the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) at the Oxford University Department of Geography. It has been long understood that climate change will affect some regions more severely than others.
