A coupled-cycles framework is essential to balancing human needs with the health of the planet.
Brightly-lit Cowboys Stadium during Sunday's Super Bowl XLV may symbolize one of the hottest new pieces of scientific intelligence about air pollution: Researchers have discovered â€” in a classic case of scientific serendipity â€” that the bright light from sports stadiums and urban street lights may boost daytime levels of ozone, a key air pollutant in many heavily populated areas.
LONG BEACH, Calif., Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- APTwater, Inc., an emerging leader in water treatment process technologies and services, has been awarded a contract to use its technology for a municipal water reuse system for the City of Anaheim, Calif.
As farmers in Hungary ponder spring planting on hundreds of acres of farmland affected by last October's red mud disaster, scientists are reporting that high alkalinity is the main threat to a bountiful harvest, not toxic metals.
The Estero de Domingo Rubio wetland, located near the Marismas del Odiel Natural Area in the Huelva estuary, is regionally, nationally and internationally protected thanks to its ecological value.
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The best available science overwhelmingly points to the conclusion that California's current perchlorate public health goal (PHG) of 6 parts per billion in drinking water is exceptionally conservative and highly protective of public health.
An international, NOAA-led research team took a significant step forward in understanding the atmosphereâ€™s ability to cleanse itself of air pollutants and some other gases, except carbon dioxide.
Spartan Environmental Technologies introduces the SPARTOX S ozone water treatment system. The S series system provides a streamlined lower cost option for water treatment while maintaining all of the important features of the proven SPARTOX ozone system.
According to a study by US scientists, bright city lights exacerbate air pollution.
DEL Ozoneâ€™s Board of Directors appointed Joel Peterson as President of the company effective December 6, 2010.

Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center on November 3, 1994 at 11:59 AM EST and landed at Edwards AFB on November 14 at 7:33 AM PST. The shuttle orbited 174 times at an altitude of 164 nautical miles at an inclination of 57 degrees and travelled 4.5 million miles. The mission lasted 10 days, 22 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds. This mission further advanced efforts to collect data about sun's energy output, chemical makeup of the Earth's middle atmosphere, and how these factors affect...
Green Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering any aspect of green chemistry. It is published monthly by the Royal Society of Chemistry and was established in 1999 by James Clark (University of York). The editor-in-chief is Sarah Ruthven. The journal covers subjects relating to reducing the environmental impact of chemical substances and fuels by developing alternative and sustainable technologies that are non-toxic to living things and the environment, including: Improved...
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...
