The world’s oceans are expected to contain more plastic than fish, by weight, by 2050 (http://bit.ly/more-plastic-than-fish). Gardiners Creek is fed litter from five local government areas (City of Whitehorse, City of Monash, City of Glen Eira, City of Stonnington and the City of Boroondara). Some of this litter gets as far as Port Phillip Bay […]

Ice cores from Antarctica and Greenland have been used to map the correlation between atmospheric greenhouse gases and atmospheric temperatures over (up to) the last 800,000 years. The greenhouse gas (Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Methane (CH4)) levels can be measured directly from the air bubbles trapped in the ice. Historical temperatures can be measured […]
