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...

Artificial Leaf Jumps Developmental Hurdle
2014-02-19 13:11:38

Arizona State University In a recent early online edition of Nature Chemistry, ASU scientists, along with colleagues at Argonne National Laboratory, have reported advances toward perfecting a functional artificial leaf. Designing an artificial leaf that uses solar energy to convert water cheaply and efficiently into hydrogen and oxygen is one of the goals of BISfuel – the Energy Frontier Research Center, funded by the Department of Energy, in the Department of Chemistry and...

Sea Sponge Challenges Theory On The Origin Of Animals

[ Watch the Video: Theory On Origin Of Animals Challenged ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online In sharp contrast to the longstanding belief among scientists that advanced life on Earth was only able to evolve once atmospheric oxygen levels rose to near-modern levels, new research has discovered a small sea sponge which they claim proves that a high concentration is not needed in order for complex creatures to live and grow. According to the authors of the new...

Two billion years ago the Earth system was recovering from perhaps the single-most profound modification of its surface environments: the oxygenation of the atmosphere and oceans. This led to a series of major changes in global biogeochemical cycles, as a team around Aivo Lepland of the Norwegian Geological Survey NGU reports in the latest online edition of "Nature Geoscience". This also resulted in the distribution of one of life's key elements, phosphorous. Studies on the unique...

Acid Rain
2013-04-01 10:21:17

Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
