redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online NASA is planning to launch a new, highly-sophisticated space-based ozone sensor to help monitor the layer of atmosphere that helps protect the planet from some of the sun´s harshest UV rays, the US space agency announced on Friday. Dubbed the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III), the sensor is currently scheduled to be installed on the International Space Station (ISS) sometime in 2014. According to NASA,...

Causes Of 2011 Arctic Ozone Hole Pinpointed By NASA
2013-03-12 10:16:04

NASA A combination of extreme cold temperatures, man-made chemicals and a stagnant atmosphere were behind what became known as the Arctic ozone hole of 2011, a new NASA study finds. Even when both poles of the planet undergo ozone losses during the winter, the Arctic´s ozone depletion tends to be milder and shorter-lived than the Antarctic´s. This is because the three key ingredients needed for ozone-destroying chemical reactions –chlorine from man-made...

Pollution Controls May Be Working Better Than Anticipated

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Ground-level ozone may be falling even faster than popular prediction models have been reporting, according to new research conducted by environmental experts at Rice University in Houston, Texas. The study suggests that recent pollution controls designed to cut down on industrial and vehicular emissions may be doing a better job of lowering dangerous ozone levels than even the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model has...

Ozone Not Only Bad For Climate, But Also Bad For The Heart

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Ever since the “ozone scare” that began in the 1970s, when it was reported that there was a hole in the ozone over the South Pole, there has been a great misunderstanding about ozone. In the past decade in fact it has only come out that ozone is actually not really good for people. Most recently researchers at Rice University in Houston have found a direct correlation between out-of-hospital cardiac arrests and levels...

Hole In The Ozone Layer Is On The Mend Say Researchers
2013-02-09 13:17:51

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to satellite data, the most recent hole in the ozone layer measured over Antarctica was the smallest it has been in ten years. Other long-term research studies also indicate that the Earth's ozone layer seems to be on the mend thanks to international agreements to protect this vital layer of the atmosphere. Continuing the work started by ERS-2 and Envisat satellites, imaging from the European Space Agency´s (ESA) MetOp...

Ocean Circulation Disrupted By A Thinning Antarctic Ozone Layer
2013-02-01 09:27:29

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The impact of the depleting Antarctic ozone layer on both the shifting direction of the Southern Hemisphere´s jet stream and the way in which the waters of the nearby southern oceans mix together is the topic of research published in this week´s edition of the journal Science. In one study, a team of researchers led by earth scientist Darryn W. Waugh of Johns Hopkins University wrote that the hole in the region´s...
