Latest Oxygen Stories
Oxygen-16, one of the key elements of life on earth, is produced by a series of reactions inside of red giant stars. Now a team of physicists has revealed how the element’s nuclear shape changes depending on its state, even though other attributes such as spin and parity don’t appear to differ.
A long held belief says that oxygenation of the atmosphere and oceans were a pre-requisite for the evolution of complex life forms. However, the latest study suggests that the first animals helped oxygenate the world's oceans.
The new RHP3680 Nitrogen Regulator has a solid brass body and bonnet, a delivery pressure of up to 3000 PSI, and maximum inlet pressure of 5000 PSI. Fort Lauderdale,
New research from a European team of scientists has identified four new artificial gases in the atmosphere that are depleting the ozone layer, according to a report published Sunday...
The surface of the sea takes up nitrogen oxides that build up in polluted air at night, new measurements on the coast of southern California have shown.
Scientists made an important step in order to better understand the relationships between vegetation and climate. So-called extremely low-volatility organic compounds, which are produced by plants, could be detected for the first time during field and laboratory experiments in Finland and Germany.
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.
DUBLIN, February 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lvrdps/portable_oxygen) has announced the addition of a new
Oxygen therapy is known as the administration of oxygen as a medical intervention. It is indicated in patients whose oxygen supply is compromised due to both acute and chronic health conditions and can be administered in many different ways. Oxygen therapy can be administered virtually wherever the patient is. Most commonly, oxygen is delivered to patients in an ambulance, hospital, or doctor’s office. These medical facilities carry oxygen in the form of a compressed gas. It is stored...
The Paleoproterozoic is the first of three subdivisions of the Proterozoic Eon (occurring from 2.5 billion to 1.6 billion years ago (Ga). This period is marked by the first stabilization of the continents, and also when cyanobacteria--a type of bacteria that uses biochemical processes of photosynthesis to produce oxygen--evolved. Experts have found paleontological evidence that during at least part of the Paleoproterozoic era, about 1.8 Ga, the earth year was about 450 days long, with days...
Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
