A project team that includes Caltech's Bethany Ehlmann will place a sensor on the International Space Station to study dust sources and gauge dust’s impact on Earth's climate.

Sampling at the site of the 2015-2016 natural gas leak explores how microbes respond to a flood of methane.

From the exploration of other planets to the meanderings of single cells, Caltech and JPL researchers are thinking about transportation in unexpected ways.

We recently sat down with Caltech's Paul Wennberg to talk about methane emissions and how to put the Aliso Canyon event into perspective.

Caltech geochemist Clair Patterson (1922–1995) helped galvanize the environmental movement 50 years ago when he announced that highly toxic lead could be found essentially everywhere on Earth, including in our own bodies—and that very little of it was due to natural causes.

The Linde Center's latest workshop—entitled "Monsoons: Past, Present, and Future" and co-led by monsoon researcher Simona Bordoni, assistant professor of environmental science and engineering at Caltech—was focused on understanding how monsoons have changed and how they will change in the future.

A new way of using the technologies aboard JPL's OCO-2 satellite allows researchers to monitor plant health and productivity on a global scale.
At Caltech's Ronald and Maxine Linde Center for Global Environmental Science, researchers from diverse disciplines work together to investigate Earth's climate and its atmosphere, oceans, and biosphere; their evolution; and how they may change in the future.

Using new computer models that account for friction, scientists at Caltech find that the Antarctic ice sheets are more sensitive to climate change than we thought.

Two and a half billion years ago, single-celled organisms called cyanobacteria harnessed sunlight to split water molecules, producing energy to power their cells and releasing oxygen into an atmosphere that had previously had none. These early environmental engineers are responsible for the life we see around us today, and much more besides. At 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 19, in Caltech's Beckman Auditorium, Professor of Geobiology Woodward "Woody" Fischer will describe how they transformed the planet. Admission is free.
