Ozone Not Only Bad For Climate, But Also Bad For The Heart
2013-02-18 14:15:12

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...

Ozone Exposure During First 3 Months Of Pregnancy May Be Key One in every 20 cases of the serious condition of pregnancy, pre-eclampsia, may be linked to increased levels of the air pollutant ozone during the first three months, suggests a large study published in the online journal BMJ Open. Mothers with asthma may be more vulnerable, the findings indicate. Pre-eclampsia is characterised by raised blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine during pregnancy. It can cause...

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...

Ozone can kill any virus or bacteria known to man. Uxbridge, MA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013 Better Rest Solutions´ new product,SoClean utilizes ozone to sanitize CPAP Equipment. Discussions have been rising on the safety of home-use of ozone for sanitization. Activated oxygen or “ozone” is a natural molecule that is formed when a third atom of oxygen is introduced into the common two-atom molecule that makes up the air we breathe. This molecule becomes...

Air Standards And Climate Could Benefit From NASA Study
2013-01-17 10:20:15

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory A new NASA-led study finds that when it comes to combating global warming caused by emissions of ozone-forming chemicals, location matters. Ozone is both a major air pollutant with known adverse health effects and a greenhouse gas that traps heat from escaping Earth's atmosphere. Scientists and policy analysts are interested in learning how curbing the emissions of these chemicals can improve human health and also help mitigate climate change....

Ozone Depletion Over Ocean Caused By Sea Surface Iodine
2013-01-14 07:06:02

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The earth´s ozone layer is critical for protecting life from damaging UV light from the sun. In the late 1970s scientists discovered for the first time that this precious barrier between life and death was depleting, and at a fairly consistent rate. After years of study, the man-made cause of the depletion–mainly seen in the polar regions–was determined to hail from chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were found...

Atlantis launched from Kennedy Space Center on November 3, 1994 at 11:59 AM EST and landed at Edwards AFB on November 14 at 7:33 AM PST. The shuttle orbited 174 times at an altitude of 164 nautical miles at an inclination of 57 degrees and travelled 4.5 million miles. The mission lasted 10 days, 22 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds. This mission further advanced efforts to collect data about sun's energy output, chemical makeup of the Earth's middle atmosphere, and how these factors affect...

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...
