Current computer models may underestimate levels of ground-level ozone A team of scientists has, for the first time, completely characterized an important chemical reaction that is critical to the formation of ground-level ozone in urban areas. The team's results indicate that computer models may be underestimating ozone levels in urban areas during episodes of poor air quality (smoggy days) by as much as five to 10 percent. Ground level ozone poses significant health hazards to people,...

By Rajesh, Puspalata Kumar, Padma S; Suresh, Sumathi; Chandran, Sinu; Et al Type 304 stainless steel and carbon steel are extensively used as structural materials in the reactor coolant systems of nuclear power plants. The corrosion of these structural materials during normal operation and the subsequent neutron activation of their corrosion products leads to the build-up of radiation on the out-of-core surfaces of the coolant systems. The Dilute Chemical Decontamination (DCD) process Is...
