Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Over four decades ago, acid rain caused by industrial emissions was eradicating fish and dissolving stone monuments in the Eastern US. However, emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide, both of which cause acid rain, dropped significantly after the passing of the Clean Air Act of 1970. A new study from a team of French and American scientists has revealed that the rise and fall of these atmospheric contaminants has been...

Researchers in Italy say their review of studies on the link between selenium and malignancies like bladder cancer turned up too little evidence to support supplementation. Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) April 04, 2014 Italian scientists say patients fighting bladder cancer and other types of cancer are not likely to get any benefit from the metalloid nutritional supplement, selenium. The new meta-analysis has just been posted on the Cancer Monthly website and can be read by clicking here....

Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), Nagoya University Professor Stephan Irle of the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (WPI-ITbM) at Nagoya University and co-workers at Kyoto University, Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL), and Chinese research institutions have revealed through theoretical simulations that the molecular mechanism of carbon nanotube (CNT) growth and hydrocarbon combustion actually share many similarities. In studies using acetylene molecules (ethyne; C2H2,...

Recovering valuable substances from wastewater
2014-03-26 03:00:15

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Phosphorus can be found in fertilizers, drinks and detergents. It accumulates in waterways and pollutes them. For this reason the German Phosphorus Platform has the goal to recover this valuable, but at the same time, harmful element from water. How this can be done will be shown by researchers at the Hannover Trade Fair / IndustrialGreenTec from April 7 – 11 in Hannover (hall 6, booth J18) where visitors can try out the method for themselves. Not only plants,...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers recently got a sneak peek deep into the lower atmospheric layers of gas giant planets such as Jupiter or Saturn using Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron's (DESY) X-ray laser FLASH. The team's observations, led by Dr. Ulf Zastrau of the University of Jena, demonstrate how liquid hydrogen becomes a plasma. The findings, published in Physical Review Letters, also provide information on the material's...

Researchers at New Zealand's University of Otago are helping to clear up an enduring mystery regarding the composition of the Earth's atmosphere. They have discovered the microbial soil processes that help ensure that the explosive gas hydrogen remains at trace levels. In recent decades it was found that around four-fifths of all hydrogen released into the air is rapidly removed through soil activity, but exactly what is recycling it, and how, has remained unclear. Now, Otago scientists...

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...
