The salt levels of oceans on distant Earth-like planets could have a major effect on their climates – according to new research from the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of East Anglia. A study published today reveals that the circulation in extremely salty or fresh water extra-terrestrial seas would influence their temperatures – and could in fact make for more habitable conditions for alien life. Until recently, computer simulations of habitable...
The idea of climate change turning the UK into a viable wine-making region may have boosted the industry in recent years.

An agreement has been set up with UEA Estates that staff/students can offset travel by working out their Carbon footprint and then make a donation to a cost code (quote 1322 ENV 23 CF) that Estates will use to buy trees / shrubs to plant around the grounds which offsets the carbon. There is the option to volunteer to help planting if people prefer to donate time rather than money. Otherwise, £2.50 buys one ‘whip’ (small tree) that typically offsets the carbon for a field trip abroad per...
