Atmospheric Compound Linked To Climate Change, Human Health
2012-08-09 05:34:42

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers has discovered a surprising new chemical compound in Earth's atmosphere that reacts with sulfur dioxide to form sulfuric acid, which is known to have significant impacts on climate and health. The team, led by the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of Helsinki, found that the new compound, a type of carbonyl oxide, is formed from the reaction of ozone with alkenes. Alkenes are a...

Potential Eruption In Iceland Could Pump Acid Into European Airspace
2012-06-12 15:11:11

A modern recurrence of an extraordinary type of volcanic eruption in Iceland could inject large quantities of hazardous gases into North Atlantic and European flight corridors, potentially for months at a time, a new study suggests. Using computer simulations, researchers are investigating the likely atmospheric effects if a “flood lava” eruption took place in Iceland today. Flood lava eruptions, which stand out for the sheer amounts of lava and sulfurous gases they release and...

Sulphur And Iron Commonly Found In Old Shipwrecks
2012-05-16 08:47:46

Sulphur and iron compounds have been found in shipwrecks off the coast of Sweden and in the Baltic Sea, according to a new study. The group behind the results includes scientists from the University of Gothenburg and Stockholm University. The results were presented recently in the Journal of Archaeological Science. Scientists reported large quantities of sulphur and iron compounds in the salvaged 17th century warship Vasa a few years ago. This resulted in the development of sulphuric acid...

A mysterious high-altitude layer of sulphur dioxide discovered by ESA's Venus Express has been explained. As well as telling us more about Venus, it could be a warning against injecting our atmosphere with sulphur droplets to mitigate climate change. Venus is blanketed in sulphuric acid clouds that block our view of the surface. The clouds form at altitudes of 50"“70 km when sulphur dioxide from volcanoes combines with water vapor to make sulphuric acid droplets. Any remaining...
