Astronomers discovered that Jupiter's moon Io has a collapsable atmosphere that depends on its position in relation with the sun.
A new study revealed that not only human activities, but also natural variability influences that temperature in the middle layer of the atmosphere.
Two exoplanets in another planetary system are discovered to be rocky and researchers are studying their atmospheres to see if they can host life.
Scientists discover a strong “electric wind” in Venus that can strip off all of the planet’s waters.
The strange radio signals detected in 2009 might have just come from extreme lightning storms in an exoplanet, and is unlikely to be alien communication, revealed a new study by scientists from Scotland.
A new study suggests that the the ancient atmosphere of Earth was only half as thick as it is today, reversing the commonly accepted idea that the early Earth had a thicker atmosphere to compensate for weaker sunlight during that time.
Although oxygen build-up on Earth and in its oceans took longer than previously thought, it provided the essential burst of energy for animal growth on life, says a new study.
Aerosol particles ejected into the air following volcanic eruptions can trigger rainfall shortages that ultimately alter river systems worldwide.
Protected areas in Indonesia have reduced mangrove habitat loss. According to a Duke University study, this also prevented significant amounts of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.
Scientists have discovered a thin layer of oxygen created by photosynthetic bacteria at the bottom of a Antarctic lake. This could better explain what was happening on Earth billions of years ago.
With climate change already impacting various parts of the world, scientists have started looking into Earth's past in order to better predict how it will affect our future. To add to growing evidence, a new study has found that ice sheet collapse 135 million years ago triggered events of strong global climate change.
During the last Ice Age, massive slabs of ice covered much of North America, but new research now shows that calving icebergs resulted in a huge influx of freshwater that increased the production of the greenhouse gas, methane, in tropical wetlands.
Prehistoric climate changes that took place thousands of years ago are apparently hidden inside Indian cave deposits (not pictured), and may hold clues to better predicting future climate in the region, according to new research.
Earth's ozone is in good shape, according to scientists, thanks to the Montreal Protocol, which has helped us avoid severe ozone depletion.
It has been said that our lofty goal of preventing the world from warming an additional 2 degrees Celsius is utterly inadequate. After all, research has already shown that means to keep to this two-degree limit are slipping away. And yet, despite all the speculation, one new study says that it is even possible to limit future warming to a more ambitious goal of 1.5 degrees C by 2100.
