According to a study by U.S. scientists, bright city lights exacerbate air pollution. Their research indicates that the glare thrown up into the sky interferes with chemical reactions. These reactions would normally help clean the air during the night of the fumes emitted by vehicles and factories during the day. The researchers presented their findings at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. Nature uses a special form of nitrogen oxide, known as nitrate radical, to...

Geophysical phenomena such as the dynamics of the atmosphere and ocean circulation are typically modeled mathematically by tracking the motion of air or water particles. These mathematical models define velocity fields that, given (i) a position in three-dimensional space and (ii) a time instant, provide a speed and direction for a particle at that position and time instant. "Geophysical phenomena are still not fully understood, especially in turbulent regimes," explains Gary Froyland at the...

Scientists with the United Nations (UN) announced Thursday they found that the Earth's protective ozone layer in the upper atmosphere has stopped thinning out and should be mostly restored by the middle of this century thanks to a ban on dangerous chemicals that float up into the air. The "Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion 2010" report said a 1987 international treaty that prohibited further use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) had been overly successful. CFC was widely used in...
