Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe online Globally, wildfires are responsible for creating veritable ecological wastelands across millions of hectares of land each year. As the effects of climate change have become ever more pronounced over the previous years, we have seen both the number and severity of wildfires increase drastically. As reported on redOrbit last year, the increasing number of wildfires has been sending both carbon monoxide and other toxins streaming into...

Snowballs to Soot: The Clumping Density of Many Things Seems to Be a Standard
2014-06-12 14:37:12

Michael Baum, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Particles of soot floating through the air and comets hurtling through space have at least one thing in common: 0.36. That, reports a research group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is the measure of how dense they will get under normal conditions, and it’s a value that seems to be constant for similar aggregates across an impressively wide size range from nanometers to tens of meters.*...

pollen in the atmosphere
2014-06-01 02:40:19

Marlene Cimons, National Science Foundation Researchers study water cycle and cloud formation and design computer algorithm models to understand impact In the past, many atmospheric scientists believed that pollen particles probably had a negligible effect on climate because they were so big. In recent years, however, as they began to realize that pollen particles were not as sturdy as they once thought, they have been rethinking their old assumptions. "Pollen can rupture and...

Laboratory chamber walls have been stealing vapors, causing researchers to underestimate the formation of secondary organic aerosol in the atmosphere. A study published April 7 in PNAS Online Early Edition describes how a team of scientists, including researchers from the University of California, Davis, showed that vapor losses to the walls of laboratory chambers can suppress the formation of secondary organic aerosol, which in turn has contributed to the underprediction of SOA in climate...

Dust Kicked Up In Asia Strengthens Monsoons In India
2014-03-17 10:18:29

Mary Beckman, DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory A new analysis of satellite data reveals a link between dust in North Africa and West Asia and stronger monsoons in India. The study shows that dust in the air absorbs sunlight west of India, warming the air and strengthening the winds carrying moisture eastward. This results in more monsoon rainfall about a week later in India. The results explain one way that dust can affect the climate, filling in previously unknown details about...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
