Mountain erosion may add CO₂ to the atmosphere
Scientists have long known that steep mountain ranges can draw carbon dioxide (CO₂) out of the atmosphere — as erosion exposes new rock, it also starts a chemical reaction between minerals on hill slopes and CO₂ in the air, ‘weathering’ the rock and using CO₂ to produce carbonate minerals like calcite.
Coastal erosion heightens pollution risk from historic UK landfill sites
Over 1,000 old landfill sites on the coasts of England and Wales are at increasing risk of being breached by erosion, according to a new study, posing a serious pollution danger to wildlife and bathing waters.
Climate change speeds up gully erosion
The erosion of large natural channels by flowing water ― gully erosion ― can wreak havoc on fields, roads, and buildings. In some cases, the sudden expansion of gullies even claims human lives.
