Consuming foods grown in urban gardens may offer a variety of health benefits, but a lack of knowledge about the soil used for planting, could pose a health threat for both consumers and gardeners. In a new study from the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF), researchers identified a range of factors and challenges related to the perceived risk of soil contamination among urban community gardeners and found a need for clear and concise information on how best to prevent and manage...

Four New Ozone-Depleting Gases Discovered In Earth's Atmosphere
2014-03-10 10:15:19

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from a European team of scientists has identified four new artificial gases in the atmosphere that are depleting the ozone layer, according to a report published Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience. The report estimated that nearly 82,000 tons of three newly identified chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and one newly found hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) have been released into the atmosphere. “Our research has shown four...

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Consumer Watchdog has called for a state investigation of the cleanup of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco for large amounts of soil that may have been dug up in a radioactively impacted parcel without being checked for contamination and then sent off site for possible disposal in landfills unlicensed to take low-level radioactive waste. "We want the state to immediately halt all trucking of this soil until it...

Organic Particle Ingredients Formed By New gas-phase Compounds
2014-02-27 11:53:49

Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS) Scientists made an important step in order to better understand the relationships between vegetation and climate. So-called extremely low-volatility organic compounds, which are produced by plants, could be detected for the first time during field and laboratory experiments in Finland and Germany. These organic species contribute to the formation of aerosol that can affect climate and air quality, they report in this week's issue of the...

when a pine-scented molecule combines with ozone in the surrounding air, some of the free radicals created in the process grab oxygen with unprecedented speed
2014-02-27 06:28:35

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For atmospheric scientists, pine forests are magical places where coniferous trees give off pine-scented vapors. These vapors form particles, rapidly and seemingly out of nowhere. A new study from an international group of scientists illuminates the process by which gas wafting from coniferous trees creates particles that can reflect sunlight or promote cloud formation. Both are important climate feedbacks. The findings, led by the...

Hydrogen Fuel Production Boost
2014-02-24 09:34:50

Chris Barncard, University of Wisconsin-Madison MADISON, Wis. — Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. The sun can also drive reactions to create chemical fuels, such as hydrogen that can in turn power cars, trucks and trains. The trouble with solar fuel production is the cost of producing the sun-capturing semiconductors and the catalysts to generate fuel. The most efficient materials are far too expensive to produce fuel at a...

Today's soil contamination is a direct result of man-made chemicals or other changes in nature's soil environment. This contamination most commonly occurs from underground storage tanks bursting, use of pesticides, discarding oil and fuel illegally, leakage of dirty surface water, draining of wastes from landfalls and knowingly dumping industrial wastes into the soil. The most widespread chemicals found are petroleum hydrocarbons, solvents, common pesticides, lead and additional heavy metals....

Environmental science is a science that contains a wide range of scientific disciplines. These disciplines are grouped together based on the natural environment which they encompass and interact with. These sciences include physical, chemical, and biological components. Environmental science provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environmental systems. The most common way environmental science is studied is through the work of one individual or small team drawing on the...
