Microbes able to remove carbon dioxide

Researchers from the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment at the University of Western Sydney experimenting with recording signs of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the forest, which indicates soil microbes become active again. These microbes known to be active again after a summer rain or drought post.

Reporting from Sciencealert, on Thursday, April 3, 2014, the research is part of an EucFACE experiment, which uses sensors to measure the 'breath' of the forest. Prior studies using this sensor, known very little about how to deal with drought and soil microbes resurrection (revival).

As is known, the dry forest ecosystems makes the trees shed their leaves in bulk and soil moisture reaches a certain level. The rain that appears to make the tree back to life, where the grass is growing and blooming plants.

The study involved hundreds of sensors and recording devices are placed Cumberland Plain Forest. "What we are seeing is a direct 'breathe out' from the ground because of the flora and fauna become active again after the rain," said the scientist.
The scientist added that the team was able to measure and draw the 'breathe' pattern in a graph. This pattern coincides with rainfall in the Cumberland Plain Forest, Australia. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCEALERT]
