If we're to meet a goal set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Renewable Fuels Standard to use 36 billion gallons per year of biofuels—mostly ethanol—the nation must expand its infrastructure for transporting and storing ethanol. Currently, ethanol is transported via trucks, trains, and barges. For the large volumes required in the future, transportation by pipeline is considered to be the most efficient method to get it to customers. The integrity and safety of pipelines...

Scientists Document Scavenging For Oxygen In Seawater Circulating Through Deep Oceanic Crust
2013-09-27 11:16:26

Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences Although long thought to be devoid of life, the bottom of the deep ocean is now known to harbor entire ecosystems teeming with microbes. Scientists have recently documented that oxygen is disappearing from seawater circulating through deep oceanic crust, a significant first step in understanding the way life in the "deep biosphere" beneath the sea floor is able to survive and thrive. The new research findings were published in the journal Nature...

Life-Bearing Oxygen Appeared On Earth Three Billion Years Ago
2013-09-26 07:19:54

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from the University of Copenhagen and University of British Columbia (UBC) has revealed that oxygen appeared 700 million years earlier than we previously thought. The findings, published in the journal Nature, raises new questions about the evolution of early life. The research team examined the chemical composition of three-billion-year-old soils from South Africa, which are the oldest soils on Earth. They found...

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp® attempts to submit an invention, Retractable Oxygen Tubing Collection Device, to companies for review. Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 06, 2013 "Having seen many of my patients struggle with and even trip over excess oxygen tubing, I decided that there needed to be a reliable way to avoid these problems," said one of three inventors from Wheelersburg, Ohio. "As a result, the co-inventors and I created a prototype of the RETRACTABLE OXYGEN...

South Pacific Flights Make More Ozone
2013-09-05 15:12:27

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A short-lived greenhouse gas, ozone’s formation and destruction depends mostly on the local chemical environment. Now, a new study from MIT researchers has indicated that flights passing over a certain section of the South Pacific produce the most ozone from their emissions. The results of the study, which was published in Environmental Research Letters, could have far-reaching implications for the timing and course taken by some...

Oxygen ‘Sponge’ Presents Path To Better Catalysts, Energy Materials
2013-08-29 08:06:10

Oak Ridge National Laboratory Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a new oxygen “sponge” that can easily absorb or shed oxygen atoms at low temperatures. Materials with these novel characteristics would be useful in devices such as rechargeable batteries, sensors, gas converters and fuel cells. Materials containing atoms that can switch back and forth between multiple oxidation states are technologically important but very rare in...

Oxygen Therapy
2013-04-30 10:27:06

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...

Geologic Clock With Events And Periods

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
2004-10-19 04:45:44

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...
