The Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC), located at the U. Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), is the primary climate change data and information analysis center for DOE.
CDIAC is supported by DOE's Climate and Environmental Sciences Division within the Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER).
Nearly one third of anthropogenic carbon dioxide is being absorbed by the oceans today(Science Daily, May 24, 2008) .
Uptake of carbon dioxide by the oceans is not a harmful phenomenon , but excess of it leads to a reduction in p H thereby altering the fundamental seawater chemistry, commonly known as ocean acidification ....
Algae can be used to harness the carbon dioxide, nitrogen, make oxygen and be refined for biofuel.
Cyanobacteria is the most common type of microalgae used for biofuel (“Massachusetts company making,” 2011) The biofuel from algae can be cost effective, only costing ten to twenty dollars a barrel to produce....
The magical number was, in fact, discovered to be 6.024E.
Highly polluted areas, such as the Los Angeles area, pose a threat to the elderly, children, and people suffering with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) (“People at Risk,” 2013).Therefore, the half-life of a radioactive element is independent of the amount of sample.With the help of half-life values of a suitable radioisotope of an element, which is present in a rock, or in an artifact, the age of the rock and the artifact can be determined.On the other hand, it is totally useless as a unit of measure for bananas.One atom or even ten atoms are too small for an individual to measure out in a lab.
emissions estimates through 2014 are now available.
