For the first time, thanks to the analysis of an ice core taken from the east coast of Greenland, in Renland, the history of forest fires in Iceland over the last 5,000 years has been reconstructed. The discovery was...
The transition to an economy based on renewable energy sources requires the use of electrochemical methods to convert electrical energy into chemical energy and raw materials. A group of researchers from the Berlin Polytechnic, the Zurich Polytechnic, the Materials...
The fight against climate change also involves the planting of new trees. In particular, a generation of plants with a low chlorophyll content could be the winning weapon for containing temperature and climate change. The development of modern human societies...
Global warming will change the lengths of the four seasons, a new study suggests, potentially making six-month-long summers the norm by the year 2100. In contrast, winters could last less than two months a year, while spring and autumn similarly...
Understanding the reasons for the sharp increase in temperatures in the Arctic compared to the rest of the planet, the so-called "Arctic amplification", investigating its complex mechanisms. This is the goal of the ECAPAC and SENTINEL projects, the first...

The Amazon rainforest generates some of the rain that falls in its own area, as it takes water from the soil and transpires it into the surrounding air, thus sustaining itself. A study by the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences...
The geothermal energy is a possible source of provisions, using the inner heat of the Earth and reprenents an effective option Geothermal energy is a possible source of energy supply that exploits the Earth's internal heat and is, in...
Animals find it increasingly difficult to mate and reproduce, often due to man and his habits. Among these causes of disturbance to animal love, climate change comes first, but also deforestation, noise, light and plastic pollution, poaching play decisive...
