According to a dailykos.com article (“China’s water pollution off the charts, must outsource food...

200,000 Early Deaths A Year Due To Air Pollution, Says Study
2013-08-29 14:18:45

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While the 1970 Clean Air Act was put in place by the United States Environmental Protection Agency to protect the public health, a new study by researchers from MIT’s Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment have found that these efforts likely aren’t doing enough. This new study found that vehicle emissions are the biggest contributor to premature death. According to the study more than 200,000 early deaths occur in the United...

NASA Air Pollution Mission To Fly Over Houston
2013-08-22 14:05:13

NASA A multi-year airborne science mission is on its way to Texas to help scientists better understand how to measure and forecast air quality from space. Two NASA aircraft equipped with scientific instruments will fly over the Houston area throughout September of 2013. One aircraft will fly as low as 1,000 feet off the ground. The aircraft are part of NASA's five-year DISCOVER-AQ study, which stands for Deriving Information on Surface conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved...

Air Quality Monitoring In South Africa Improved With Satellites
2013-08-22 09:07:42

ESA Economic development often means an increase of harmful gases into the atmosphere. ESA’s GlobEmission project uses satellite data to monitor atmospheric pollution from emissions. South Africa’s economy is rapidly growing. From 2002 to 2012, its gross domestic product grew by about 270 billion US dollars. Unfortunately, a strong economy often leads to high levels of air pollutants – which can influence regional air quality and can have an impact on global climate change....

A gas mask is designed to go over the face to protect the wearer from inhaling "airborne pollutants". The mask seals the nose and mouth and many times covers other soft tissues of the face. Some have respirators. Most gas masks provide protection from gaseous and particulate and are often used by riot police and rioters alike. They are also used by graffiti artists to protect them from the fumes. The original design had two small glass eye windows that were thick in order from keeping the...

Arctic haze is a phenomenon that occurs in the atmosphere at high latitudes in the Arctic due to air pollution. What distinguishes Arctic haze from haze found elsewhere, is the ability of its chemical ingredients to endure in the atmosphere for a longer period of time compared to other pollutants. Due to limited snowfall, rain, or turbulent air to displace pollutants from the polar air in the spring, Arctic haze can continue for more than a month in the northern atmosphere. Arctic haze was...

Haze is a type of atmospheric phenomenon where dust, smoke and dry particles in the air obscure the sky's clarity. Haze is created through various activities including farming, traffic pollution,and even wildfires. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) categorizes the obscuration of the Earth's atmosphere by a list of different types of atmospheric phenomena. One of these is haze. The other classifications are: fog, ice fog, steam fog, mist, smoke, volcanic ash, dust, sand, and snow....

Mist is a phenomenon that consists of small droplets of water suspended in air. Mist occurs as part of a natural weather event or from volcanic activity. Mist is most common in cold air above warm water. Mist also occurs when air is exhaled in cold temperatures or when steam is formed in a sauna. Aerosol cans can create artificial mist if the humidity levels are just right. The one difference between mist and fog is visibility. If visibility is less than 0.62 miles (1 kilometer), the...
