Rainforests, frequently called the planet's lungs, are often thought of as a single collection of ecosystems. Researchers now find that rainforests across the globe vary greatly in the amount of rainfall they receive, yet all require the same minimum amount of rain to thrive.
This video features cloud footage taken from a superfast research aircraft that includes a new laser-based sensor invented by Mark Zondlo to measure water vapor throughout the atmosphere.
Princeton engineers are designing an underground experimental facility in a defunct South Dakota gold mine to test what would happen if carbon dioxide stored underground were to leak toward the surface.
Rene Carmona, the Paul Wythes '55 Professor of Engineering and Finance, has developed models to guide cap-and-trade policies intended to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Just months before world leaders are scheduled to meet to devise a new international treaty on climate change, a research team led by Princeton University researchers has developed a new way of dividing responsibility for carbon emissions among countries.
Professor Ignacio Rodriguez-Iturbe and a group of Princeton researchers have invented a method for turning data about rainfall and river networks into accurate assessments of fish biodiversity.
The nation's energy future can be protected by the immediate implementation of techniques to capture and store carbon dioxide emissions, engineering professor Robert Socolow told the U.S. Senate Finance Committee Tuesday, Feb. 27.
Practically every activity of every human being every day contributes to perhaps the most dramatic experiment ever conducted -- what happens to life on Earth if the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide gas triples?
The truth about carbon emissions in the United States is far more than inconvenient, it's terrifying, David Crane, the chief executive officer and president of NRG Energy, told a standing-room-only crowd Dec. 5 at Princeton.
