UCI researchers analyzed Antarctic air samples to learn of a 70-percent increase in atmospheric hydrogen over the past 150 years

Earth system scientists at UCI studied air trapped in compacted layers of Antarctic ice and snow to come up with some answers and a few new questions about the amount of molecular hydrogen in our planet’s atmosphere. H2 is a byproduct of fossil fuel combustion, biomass burning and the oxidation of methane, among other sources, […]
