Latest Environmental chemistry Stories
The Antarctic ozone hole, a seasonal phenomenon that starts forming during the month of August was slightly smaller this year than it was on average over the past several decades, NASA satellite data has revealed.
Hydroxyl (OH) radicals – known as the detergent of the atmosphere – decompose isoprene in the air.
As they destroy bacteria very efficiently, plasmas constitute an alternative to chemical disinfectants and potentially to antibiotics, as well.
A new report details how coal retrieved from the Earth through surface mining comes at a significant cost to the ecosystem.
A new MIT study has shown that flights passing over a certain section of the South Pacific produce much more of the greenhouse gas ozone than others.
Human activities are changing the water chemistry of many streams and rivers in the Eastern U.S., with consequences for water supplies and aquatic life, so reports a new study in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
Human activities are changing the basic chemistry of many rivers in the Eastern U.S. in ways that have potentially major consequences for urban water supplies and aquatic ecosystems, a University of Maryland-led study has found.
While previous research has linked employment or innovation statistics to urban population density, a new study from NASA scientists has made a connection between pollution and the number of people living in a city.
Environmental Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published online bi-monthly by CSIRO Publishing. The journal publishes original research and review articles on all aspects of environmental chemistry, including those addressing the chemistry of air, water, soil, sediments, space and biota. Topics include atmospheric chemistry, geochemistry, climate change, marine chemistry, water chemistry, polar chemistry, fire chemistry, astrochemistry, earth and geochemistry, soil and sediment...
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...
