1_41561_2019_436_Fig1_HTML.png Enhancing land carbon sink by carbon dioxide fertilization
Elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration increases land carbon sink, partially offsetting carbon dioxide emissions from human activities such as fossil fuel, cement production, and land-use change. This process is known as carbo...

image002.png Study Reveals Key Factor in Himalayan Earthquake Rupture

  The Himalayan orogenic belt produces frequent large earthquakes that impact population centers for a distance of over 2500 km. In the central region, the 2015 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal, with moment magnitude (MW) 7.8, partially rup...
