Taking Stock of the AtmosphereExternal link

For the next year, a Cessna 206 aircraft from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility will sweep through the skies multiple times, skimming 500 feet above the Earth’s surface and soaring up to 17,500 feet, allowing scientists to gain an accurate picture of trace gas concentrations in the atmosphere over the ARM Southern Great Plains (SGP) facility.

Microbes Map Path Toward Renewable Energy FutureExternal link

In the quest for renewable fuels, scientists are taking lessons from a humble bacterium that fills our oceans and covers moist surfaces the world over. When blue-green algae captures light to make food using photosynthesis, scientists have found that it simultaneously uses the energy from that captured light to produce hydrogen.
