Lower Air Pollution Linked To Higher Mortality
2012-12-04 10:38:42

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that a decrease in the air pollution levels is linked to improved life expectancy in the United States. The researchers discovered the connection in 545 different counties between 2000 and 2007. They believe that it is the biggest study of its kind to date, and could eventually impact general public health in the U.S. The findings were recently published...

Foggy Perception Causes Us To Slow Down
2012-10-31 12:43:09

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Max Planck scientists show that, contrarily to what was previously believed, speed is overestimated in fog Fog is an atmospheric phenomenon that afflicts millions of drivers every day, impairing visibility and increasing the risk of an accident. The ways people respond to conditions of reduced visibility is a central topic in vision research. It has been shown that people tend to underestimate speeds when visibility is reduced equally at all distances, as for...

The above map identifies the visibility throughout the United States. We as meteorologist use surface visibility charts to help identify where certain features are possibly at. If we look at the red circle near San Diego we can see that it says ¼ visibility meaning that they are experiencing Fog at their weather station, which can lead to many problems from traffic on the roads and also the shipping lanes of the ocean. The second is the 3 and 7 in Central Nebraska. Here we are looking...

Arctic haze is a phenomenon that occurs in the atmosphere at high latitudes in the Arctic due to air pollution. What distinguishes Arctic haze from haze found elsewhere, is the ability of its chemical ingredients to endure in the atmosphere for a longer period of time compared to other pollutants. Due to limited snowfall, rain, or turbulent air to displace pollutants from the polar air in the spring, Arctic haze can continue for more than a month in the northern atmosphere. Arctic haze was...

Haze is a type of atmospheric phenomenon where dust, smoke and dry particles in the air obscure the sky's clarity. Haze is created through various activities including farming, traffic pollution,and even wildfires. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) categorizes the obscuration of the Earth's atmosphere by a list of different types of atmospheric phenomena. One of these is haze. The other classifications are: fog, ice fog, steam fog, mist, smoke, volcanic ash, dust, sand, and snow....

Mist is a phenomenon that consists of small droplets of water suspended in air. Mist occurs as part of a natural weather event or from volcanic activity. Mist is most common in cold air above warm water. Mist also occurs when air is exhaled in cold temperatures or when steam is formed in a sauna. Aerosol cans can create artificial mist if the humidity levels are just right. The one difference between mist and fog is visibility. If visibility is less than 0.62 miles (1 kilometer), the...
