Ted Atwood, President at Polar Technology, summarizes and responds to EPA's proposed rule. Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) December 12, 2013 Polar Technology confirmed that on December 5, Administrator Gina McCarthy from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a proposed rule seeking feedback on three options for determining HCFC-22 allocation from 2015 through 2019. The EPA is required by the Montreal Protocol and section 608 of the Clean Air Act to phase out all production of HCFC...

Inside Ozone Hole NASA Data

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A small hole in the Earth’s protective ozone layer appears annually over Antarctica and scientists have found that the 2012 ozone hole was the second-smallest hole since the mid 1980s. However, NASA scientists have also found that the hole in the ozone layer isn’t near to completely closing despite an international agreement to limit the emissions of ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) more than 20 years ago –...

Cassini High Res Video Saturn Hexagon Jet Stream

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has recorded the highest-resolution video to date of a unique six-sided jet stream located near Saturn’s north pole, the US space agency announced. This movie is the first to capture the phenomenon also known as the 'hexagon' using color filters, and is also the first footage to show a complete view of the top of the planet down to approximately 70 degrees latitude, NASA said. “Spanning about...

Climate Change Plateau Due To Montreal Protocol

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers writing in the journal Nature Geoscience say CFC gases have had an impact on the rise in global temperatures. Scientists believe CFC gases are responsible for a massive hole in the ozone layer, but the latest study links the ban of these gases to a slowdown in temperature increases since the mid 1990s. The standstill of global temperature rises since 1998 has been used as a key argument by some to show the impacts of global...

Spartan Environmental Technologies commissions its first oxygenation system for a bio filtration process to remove organic contaminants from groundwater. Because the groundwater is deficient in dissolved oxygen, a oxygenation system was required to increase the dissolved oxygen levels to support the biological digestion of organic contaminants. Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) November 06, 2013 Spartan Environmental Technologies commissions its first oxygenation system for a bio filtration process...

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 -- 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...
