April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Ten years ago on July 15, NASA launched the Aura satellite aboard a Delta II 7920-10L rocket into a sun-synchronous, near polar orbit approximately 400 miles above the Earth. Aura, which is Latin for "Breeze," has provided a wealth of data over the past decade, including the cause, concentrations and impact of major air pollutants. Aura's four instruments give scientists a comprehensive view of the Earth's atmosphere by measuring...

NASA Images Highlight US Air Quality Improvement
2014-06-27 03:22:56

Kathryn Hansen, NASA Anyone living in a major US city for the past decade may have noticed a change in the air. The change is apparent in new NASA satellite images unveiled this week that demonstrate the reduction of air pollution across the country. After ten years in orbit, the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on NASA's Aura satellite has been in orbit sufficiently long to show that people in major US cities are breathing less nitrogen dioxide – a yellow-brown gas that can cause...

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....
