Urban Metabolism: Watching CO2 Change
Using an innovative observational array of micro-sensors, Ron Cohen is mapping plumes of carbon-dioxide emissions to trace them to their origin. As is well-known, these carbon emissions are having profound impacts on the temperature of the atmosphere, but this, in turn, has a large effect on clouds. Ronald C. Cohen, Director of the Berkeley Atmospheric Science Center, Professor and Vice Chair in the Department of Chemistry and Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Be

Service with a smile
Research by Professor Martin Kilduff reveals that managers who help employees to deal with negative emotions feel their actions are 'extra-role behaviour' above-and-beyond their managerial duties. Employees, he says, do not expect any reciprocation, but managers on the other hand, expect personal commitment in return and that, Professor Kilduff warns, could lead to problems.

Science Bulletins: Australia's Coral Growth Slows
Corals, like clams, lobster, and sea urchins, are marine calcifiers—they incorporate dissolved minerals from seawater to grow their hard parts. Calcifiers are considered at risk from our increased introduction of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide in the air increases the temperature of the ocean by ramping up the greenhouse effect, and the absorption of carbon dioxide into the ocean changes its chemistry so that minerals are less available for
