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...

Searching For Climate Clues Across Southern US Skies
2013-08-15 11:03:55

NASA NASA research aircraft began flights Aug. 12 from Houston's Ellington Field to investigate how the combination of summer storms and rising air pollution from wildfires, cities, and other sources can change our climate. Hoping to improve future predictions of climate change, scientists in the NASA study are using the skies over much of the southern United States as a natural laboratory this month and into September. They are grappling with one of the tougher factors driving Earth's...

Slight Global Warming May Come From Ozone Winds
2013-08-09 08:27:56

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Laypeople tend to mix up the ozone hole and global warming. The popular belief is that the hole is a major cause of the world’s increasing average temperature. On the other hand, scientists have long attributed the ozone shortage in the hole to a small cooling trend. A new computer model study, led by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, suggests that there might be a slight warming influence from the ozone hole. The influence is...

Study Says Ozone-protection Treaty Had Climate Benefits Also
2013-08-06 07:36:47

The Earth Institute at Columbia University The global treaty that headed off destruction of earth's protective ozone layer has also prevented major disruption of global rainfall patterns, even though that was not a motivation for the treaty, according to a new study in the Journal of Climate. The 1987 Montreal Protocol phased out the use of chloroflourocarbons, or CFCs, a class of chemicals that destroy ozone in the stratosphere, allowing more ultraviolet radiation to reach earth's...

Air Pollution Takes Two Million Lives Each Year
2013-07-12 12:35:01

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, over two million people die every year as a result of air pollution. Researchers have shown that around 2.1 million deaths are caused each year by a human-caused increase in fine particulate matter (PM2.5). These are tiny particles suspended in the air that can penetrate deep into the lungs, causing cancer and other respiratory diseases. The team also found...
