Latest Ozone Stories
According the American Lung Association’s newly released State of the Air 2013 report, many people across the US are breathing higher quality air than in previous years. However, the number of people living in counties with an unhealthy level of air pollution has increased, the report said.
Air pollution from wildland fires and urban and agricultural areas in California is diminishing air quality at Devils Postpile National Monument.
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories' Combustion Research Facility, the University of Manchester, Bristol University, University of Southampton and Hong Kong Polytechnic have successfully measured reaction rates of a second Criegee intermediate, CH3CHOO, and proven that the reactivity of the atmospheric chemical depends strongly on which way the molecule is twisted.
A research team from Birkbeck, University of London, Royal Holloway University and Uppsala University in Sweden, have helped explain how ozone causes severe respiratory problems and thousands of cases of premature death each year by attacking the fatty lining of our lungs.
Ozone solutions, a turnkey ozone system supplier, hires water treatment expert Chad Whittington to increase manufacturing capacity and shorten lead times for ozone generation products.
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.
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 -- 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...
