  • A shift in the balance between production and destruction of STRATOSPHERIC OZONE that results in a decline of the amount of OZONE in the lower stratosphere. (
  • Ozone in the Earth's stratosphere. (
  • This overview paper outlines the scope and the general approach of RECONCILE, and it provides a summary of observations and modelling in 2010 and 2011 that have generated an in many respects unprecedented dataset to study processes in the Arctic winter stratosphere. (
  • Ozone in the stratosphere, located on average 10 to 48 kilometers (6 to 30 miles) above the ground, typically stays in the stratosphere. (
  • This GEOS-5 simulation of the April 6, 2012, stratospheric ozone intrusion shows ozone moving from high in the atmosphere, primarily in the stratosphere (blue), down close to the ground (red). (
  • Ozone high in the atmosphere, in the stratosphere, forms naturally when sunlight mingles with oxygen molecules to form the well-known "layer" that protects life on Earth from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. (
  • Many of those models assume ozone moves from the stratosphere to the troposphere at a constant, average rate. (
  • This is welcome news for stratospheric ozone because it means that less bromine and chlorine have been entering the upper atmosphere [stratosphere], where the ozone layer resides, for a number of years now," said Montzka. (
  • Ozone is a colorless, gaseous form of oxygen found in the Earth's atmosphere, primarily in the upper region known as the stratosphere, where it is naturally produced and destroyed. (
  • Within the stratosphere is a layer between 20 and 40 kilometers (km) above Earth's surface that is known as the ozone layer . (
  • In the stratosphere, the concentration of ozone is 1,000 times greater than in the lower region of Earth's atmosphere known as the troposphere. (
  • Ozone in the stratosphere is beneficial because it protects Earth's inhabitants from the Sun's harmful ultraviolet radiation . (
  • In the 1970s a research group with the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) was monitoring the atmosphere above Antarctica when the scientists first noticed a loss of ozone in the lower stratosphere. (
  • [2] Once in the stratosphere, they release halogen atoms through photodissociation , which catalyze the breakdown of ozone (O 3 ) into oxygen (O 2 ). (
  • Ozone is formed in the stratosphere when oxygen molecules photodissociate after absorbing ultraviolet photons. (
  • The total amount of ozone in the stratosphere is determined by a balance between photochemical production and recombination. (
  • It is estimated that one chlorine atom can destroy over 100,000 ozone molecules before it is removed from the stratosphere (4). (
  • The ozone layer is a layer in the stratosphere surrounding the Earth, that has large amounts of ozone in it. (
  • Ozone is produced by intense ultraviolet radiation in the upper stratosphere. (
  • Ozone is destroyed when it reacts with one of a variety of chemicals in the stratosphere such as chlorine, nitrogen, bromine or hydrogen. (
  • We use a global chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem) to evaluate the consistency of satellite measurements of lightning flashes and ozone precursors with in situ measurements of tropical tropospheric ozone. (
  • We interpret these multiple data sources with our model to better understand what controls tropical tropospheric ozone. (
  • Tropical tropospheric ozone is mainly affected by lightning NO x and convection in the upper troposphere and by surface emissions in the lower troposphere. (
  • Tropical tropospheric ozone is mainly affected by lightning NOx and convection in the upper troposphere and by surface emissions in the lower troposphere. (
  • Tropospheric ozone (O 3 ) is a global air pollutant that causes high economic damages by decreasing plant productivity. (
  • Emissions of non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs), nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and methane contribute to the formation of ground-level (tropospheric) ozone. (
  • Ozone is a powerful oxidant and tropospheric ozone can have adverse effects on human health and ecosystems. (
  • This is the first time in the United States that we have used high-resolution Lidar data to determine lightning 's impact on tropospheric ozone ," says Dr. Lihua "Lucy" Wang, a UAH Earth Systems Science Center (ESSC) research associate who was the lead author of a research paper on the team's findings. (
  • Tropospheric ozone - a greenhouse gas and the kind that affects the air we breathe - can increase in concentration because of atmospheric conditions, or can result from human activities. (
  • When lightning introduces ozone into the upper troposphere , there is some downward transport mechanism that will affect lower tropospheric ozone " Dr. Wang says. (
  • Lihua Wang et al, Evaluation of lightning-induced tropospheric ozone enhancements observed by ozone lidar and simulated by WRF/Chem, Atmospheric Environment (2015). (
  • There are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion events in addition to these stratospheric events. (
  • Tropospheric ozone, aerosols, and water vapor are important atmospheric constituents that affect air quality and climate. (
  • 4 With this system, we build upon the successes of our earlier autonomous lidars, but we now use a synergistic approach to simultaneously measure the vertical profiles of tropospheric ozone, aerosols, and water vapor. (
  • Within the AMOLITE design (see Figure 2 ) we combine a dual laser for redundancy purposes and a dual lidar design, i.e., the tropospheric ozone Differential Absorption lidar (DIAL) and an aerosol lidar with three backscatter channels, two Raman channels, and one cross-polarization channel ('3+2+1' configuration). (
  • Since all compounds reacted slowly with molecular ozone only the degradation pathway of MTBE with OH radicals as been determined, including the formation of primary degradation products. (
  • The Montreal Protocol, which limits production of ozone-damaging compounds, was originally signed by 23 nations in 1987 and has been strengthened through revisions and amendments since then. (
  • This indicator tracks trends since 1990 in anthropogenic emissions of ozone precursor pollutants: nitrogen oxides (NO X ), carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH 4 ) and non methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs). (
  • We summarize studies on fully integrated micro-chemical systems and total processes to reduce accidental exposure to various regents that are toxic, explosive, or carcinogenic, which significantly improved the safety of work involving risky compounds. (
  • Removal of nine pharmaceutical compounds¿acetaminophen (AAF), antipyrine (ANT), caffeine (CAF), carbamazepine (CRB), diclofenac (DCF), hydrochlorothiazide (HCT), ketorolac (KET), metoprolol (MET) and sulfamethoxazole (SMX)¿spiked in a primary sedimentation effluent of a municipal wastewater has been studied with sequential aerobic biological and ozone advanced oxidation systems. (
  • It is formed from precursor pollutants - volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) - and controlling ozone depends on controlling VOCs and NOx, common pollutants emitted from hundreds of sources. (
  • The TOC was more effectively removed when aromatic compounds were treated using the O 3 -UV-TiO 2 process than when using the other AOPs, and the TOC was removed more effectively by the O 3 -UV process than by the UV-TiO 2 process. (
  • However, the TOC was removed more effectively when open-chain compounds were treated using the UV-TiO 2 process than using the O 3 -UV process, and the UV-TiO 2 and O 3 -UV-TiO 2 processes resulted in similar TOC removal efficiencies. (
  • Therefore, it is necessary to use the O 3 -UV-TiO 2 process to decompose aromatic compounds as quickly as possible. (
  • On the other hand, the UV-TiO 2 process degraded the open-chain compounds most effectively, and the O 3 -UV-TiO 2 process did not need to decompose open-chain compounds. (
  • The removal of the TOC when organic compounds were treated using the O 3 -UV-TiO 2 process followed pseudo-zero-order kinetics. (
  • Suzuki, H. , Yamagiwa, S. , Araki, S. and Yamamoto, H. (2016) Effects of Advanced Oxidation Processes on the Decomposition Properties of Organic Compounds with Different Molecular Structures in Water. (
  • Persistent organic pollutants are poorly biodegradable, meaning that natural processes cause very little decomposition of these compounds to occur, so these compounds can pollute the environment for a long time. (
  • The present work focusses on parameter estimation of the model describing the CIP oxidation considering the reactions of intermediate compounds and total organic carbon (TOC) with the ozone molecule and hydroxyl radical. (
  • These compounds consume ozone affecting the ozonation process. (
  • The event, called a stratospheric ozone intrusion, raised ground-level ozone concentrations in some areas to potentially unhealthy levels. (
  • For this reason, the Clean Air Act requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set a threshold for ground-level ozone, as outlined in the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. (
  • Lin's analysis, based on a GFDL model with 50-kilometer (31-mile) resolution, suggests that the impact on ground level ozone in the U.S. West from springtime intrusion events is two to three times greater than previously estimated. (
  • High concentrations of ground-level ozone adversely affects the human respiratory system and there is evidence that long-term exposure accelerates the decline in lung function with age and may impair the development of lung function. (
  • If ground-level ozone exceeds 70 parts per billion, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issues an air quality advisory. (
  • The purpose of this research study is to learn more about the effects of 0.12 ppm ozone exposure on humans. (

  • Pearson product-moment correlation analysis showed that with increase of ozone level in copying sites and duration of exposure to ozone, the values of LPO in plasma and erythrocytes in the bodies of operators were gradually increased,while those of VC, VE, beta-CAR, SOD, CAT and GPX were decreased in the same manner. (
  • The principal purpose of this study is to identify hyper-responsive, responsive and non-responsive groups of human subjects with mild asthma based on their airway neutrophilic response to ozone exposure, and to perform analyses on DNA from airway cells to explore possible differences in genetic profiles between the three groups.

  • For their study, Belz and his colleagues examined the link between ozone levels and poverty as part of SPIROMICS AIR , which is looking at individual-level exposure to air pollution in the SPIROMICS cohort. (
  • This process, in order to achieve effective asepsis levels, requires exposure of the materials to the gas for at least one to three hours followed by a minimum of twelve hours, or longer, aeration period. (
  • It requires a very thorough aeration process following the exposure of the medical materials to the gas in order to flush away toxic EtO residues and other toxic liquid by-products like ethylene glycol and ethylene chlorohydrin. (

  • The US national ambient-air monitoring network, created to verify compliance with health-based standards, now doubles as an important source of exposure data for the epidemiological analyses on which these standards increasingly rest, particularly in the case of ozone and PM 2.5 . (
  • Exposure to ozone is associated with "a significant increase in the risk of death from respiratory diseases," and it has well-known toxic effects on people's lungs when present with nitrogen dioxide in smog. (
  • For safety reasons, the affected area must be evacuated of people, animals and live plants for the duration of the exposure, and for a long enough period afterwards to allow the ozone to dissipate. (
  • Exposure to high levels of ozone kills living organisms and weakens odours. (
  • Critics point to a 1997 study which found exposure to high levels of ozone ineffective at mold decontamination, and to the lack of studies showing high ozone shock treatment to be effective. (
  • The aim of this work was to study the effect of ozone therapy on blood lymphocyte subpopulations (CD3, CD4+, CD8+), leukocyte function (CD45), HLA-DR molecule expression and the serum levels of IgE in patients with inflammatory diseases. (

  • Because of kinetic space-hindrance factors governing the attachment of such a bulky molecule, the process needs to be carried out at high pressure and be extended over a long period of time. (
  • The molecule of three oxygen atoms is called ozone. (
  • The oxygen atom then joins up with an oxygen molecule to regenerate ozone. (
  • Ozone is a highly reactive molecule that easily reduces to the more stable oxygen form with the assistance of a catalyst. (
  • 2 ). The ClO can react with a second molecule of ozone, releasing the chlorine atom and yielding two molecules of oxygen. (
  • It is these atoms that actually destroy ozone, not the intact ODS molecule. (
  • The ozone molecule generally absorbs ultra-violet radiation. (
  • In step one, an ozone molecule is cracked by sunlight to form an oxygen atom and an oxygen molecule. (
  • In step two, a catalyst, in this case chlorine, reacts with another ozone molecule to form ClO and a second oxygen molecule. (
  • Using measurements from a NASA aircraft flying over the Arctic, Harvard University scientists have made the first observations of a molecule that researchers have long theorized plays a key role in destroying stratospheric ozone, chlorine peroxide. (
  • For example, low water vapor, wind and high ozone at remote locations are often characteristic of stratospheric air. (
  • We knew, from observations dating from 1987, that the high ozone loss was linked with high levels of chlorine monoxide, but we had never actually detected the chlorine peroxide before," said Harvard scientist and lead author of the paper, Rick Stimpfle. (
  • High ozone shock treatment or ozone blasting is a process for removing unwanted odour, and killing mold, vermin and microorganisms in commercial and residential buildings. (
  • High ozone shock treatment involves using an ozone generator with a timer to create lethal levels of ozone in an enclosed odour ridden or mold-affected room or building for a short period of time, between one and several hours. (
  • When using the superchlorination process there may be a potential risk of customers accidently receiving highly chlorinated water. (

  • Each instrument provides unique and complementary capabilities that will enable daily global observations of Earth's atmospheric ozone layer, air quality, and key climate parameters. (
  • Ozone depletion consists of two related events observed since the late 1970s: a steady lowering of about four percent in the total amount of ozone in Earth's atmosphere (the ozone layer ), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone around Earth's polar regions. (
  • The ozone layer prevents most harmful wavelengths of ultraviolet (UV) light from passing through the Earth's atmosphere . (
