Researchers from Denmark and Stanford show how to produce industrial quantities of hydrogen without emitting carbon into the atmosphere University researchers from two continents have engineered an efficient and environmentally friendly catalyst for the production of molecular hydrogen (H2), a compound used extensively in modern industry to manufacture fertilizer and refine crude oil into gasoline. Although hydrogen is abundant element, it is generally not found as the pure gas H2but is...

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...

Amber Earth's Atmosphere

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Elevated levels of oxygen in the atmosphere may have caused dinosaurs, insects and other organisms to grow to gigantic sizes millions of years ago, according to prevailing theories. If a new study from scientists at the Universities of Kansas and Alberta is correct, then the atmosphere of the Cretaceous had a relatively low oxygen content – making the high-oxygen theories severely flawed. “We do not want to negate the influence...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A long standing mystery in the formation of the Solar System has been solved by cosmochemists from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). In the oldest, most pristine rocks, oxygen, the most abundant element in the Earth's crust, follows a strange, anomalous pattern that must result from a different chemical process than the well-understood reactions that form minerals containing oxygen on Earth. "Whatever the source of...

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...
