Researchers from USC and Nanjing University in China have documented evidence suggesting that part of the reason that the Earth has become neither sweltering like Venus nor frigid like Mars lies with a built-in atmospheric… more>
When the Earth’s carbon dioxide level increased at a rapid rate during the Triassic-Jurassic period 200 million years ago, nearly half the ocean’s marine life became extinct. USC Dornsife geologists contributed to… more>
A team of USC scientists has developed an easy-to-make material that can scrub large amounts of carbon dioxide from the air.
One day in the future, large artificial trees made from the material could be used to lower the… more>
Don’t waste your breath — it may be the fuel of the future.
At least that’s the scenario examined by a group of scientists at a workshop co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and USC… more>
The last fish you ate probably came from the Bering Sea.
But during this century, the sea’s rich food web — stretching from Alaska to Russia — could fray as algae adapt to greenhouse conditions.
UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that it will partner with the USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute to develop and commercialize new technology to transform carbon dioxide into clean-burning alternative fuels.
