Plasmas attack bacterial cells on several levels RUB researchers analyse the mechanism of action of UV photons and radicals As they destroy bacteria very efficiently, plasmas constitute an alternative to chemical disinfectants and potentially to antibiotics, as well. How they achieve this effect has been investigated by biologists, plasma physicists and chemists at the Ruhr-Universität (RUB). Cold atmospheric-pressure plasmas attack the prokaryote’s cell envelope, proteins and DNA....

New units make water safer, more energy efficient and lowers costs. Har Tuv. (PRWEB) September 12, 2013 Atlantium Technologies Ltd., leader in UV water treatment for industrial and municipal applications, announced today that the PepsiCo Domodedovo plant has chosen Atlantium Hydro-Optic™ UV once again for water treatment, as part of their plant expansion plan to incorporate a kvas production line. They will be installing four Atlantium units in addition to the four already in use for...

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...

200,000 Early Deaths A Year Due To Air Pollution, Says Study
2013-08-29 14:18:45

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While the 1970 Clean Air Act was put in place by the United States Environmental Protection Agency to protect the public health, a new study by researchers from MIT’s Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment have found that these efforts likely aren’t doing enough. This new study found that vehicle emissions are the biggest contributor to premature death. According to the study more than 200,000 early deaths occur in the United...

NASA Study Finds Connection Between Population And Pollution
2013-08-20 14:33:41

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While previous research has linked employment or innovation statistics to urban population density, a new study from NASA scientists has made a connection between pollution and the number of people living in a city. Using satellite observations, the NASA team was able to calculate air pollution's dependence on population for cities in the United States, Europe, China and India. According to the report, which was published in the...

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...

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...
