Air pollution, pollens, and daily admissions for asthma in London 1987-92. (1/445)

BACKGROUND: A study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between daily hospital admissions for asthma and air pollution in London in 1987-92 and the possible confounding and modifying effects of airborne pollen. METHODS: For all ages together and the age groups 0-14, 15-64 and 65+ years, Poisson regression was used to estimate the relative risk of daily asthma admissions associated with changes in ozone, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and particles (black smoke), controlling for time trends, seasonal factors, calendar effects, influenza epidemics, temperature, humidity, and autocorrelation. Independent effects of individual pollutants and interactions with aeroallergens were explored using two pollutant models and models including pollen counts (grass, oak and birch). RESULTS: In all-year analyses ozone was significantly associated with admissions in the 15-64 age group (10 ppb eight hour ozone, 3.93% increase), nitrogen dioxide in the 0-14 and 65+ age groups (10 ppb 24 hour nitrogen dioxide, 1.25% and 2.96%, respectively), sulphur dioxide in the 0-14 age group (10 micrograms/m3 24 hour sulphur dioxide, 1.64%), and black smoke in the 65% age group (10 micrograms/m3 black smoke, 5.60%). Significant seasonal differences were observed for ozone in the 0-14 and 15-64 age groups, and in the 0-14 age group there were negative associations with ozone in the cool season. In general, cumulative lags of up to three days tended to show stronger and more significant effects than single day lags. In two-pollutant models these associations were most robust for ozone and least for nitrogen dioxide. There was no evidence that the associations with air pollutants were due to confounding by any of the pollens, and little evidence of an interaction between pollens and pollution except for synergism of sulphur dioxide and grass pollen in children (p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Ozone, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particles were all found to have significant associations with daily hospital admissions for asthma, but there was a lack of consistency across the age groups in the specific pollutant. These associations were not explained by confounding by airborne pollens nor was there convincing evidence that the effects of air pollutants and airborne pollens interact in causing hospital admissions for asthma.  (+info)

Comparison between two districts of the effects of an air pollution intervention on bronchial responsiveness in primary school children in Hong Kong. (2/445)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: This study examined the impact on children's respiratory health of a government air quality intervention that restricted the sulphur content of fuels to 0.5% from July 1990 onwards. DESIGN/SETTING/PARTICIPANTS: This study examined the changes, one and two years after the introduction of the intervention, in airway hyperreactivity of non-asthmatic and non-wheezing, primary 4, 5, and 6, school children aged 9-12 years living in a polluted district compared with those in a less polluted district. Bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR)(a 20% decrease in FEV1 provoked by a cumulative dose of histamine less than 7.8 mumol) and bronchial reactivity slope (BR slope) (percentage change in logarithmic scale in FEV1 per unit dose of histamine) were used to estimate responses to a histamine challenge. The between districts differences after the intervention were studied to assess the effectiveness of the intervention. MAIN RESULTS: In cohorts, comparing measurements made before the intervention and one year afterwards, both BHR and BR slope declined from 29% to 16% (p = 0.026) and from 48 to 39 (p = 0.075) respectively in the polluted district; and from 21% to 10% (p = 0.001) and 42 to 36 (p > 0.100) in the less polluted district. Comparing measurements made in 1991 (one year after intervention) with those in 1992 (two years after intervention), only the polluted district showed a significant decline from 28% to 12% (p = 0.016) and from 46 to 35 (p = 0.014), for BHR and BR slope respectively, with a greater decline in both responses (p = 0.018 and 0.073) than in the less polluted district. CONCLUSION: Bronchial hyperresponsiveness tests can be used to support the evaluation of an air quality intervention. The demonstrated reduction in bronchial hyperresponsiveness is an indication of the effectiveness of the intervention.  (+info)

Association of air pollution with daily GP consultations for asthma and other lower respiratory conditions in London. (3/445)

BACKGROUND: Very few published studies have looked at the effects of air pollution on health in the primary care setting. As part of a large study to examine the association between air pollution and a number of health outcomes, the relationship between daily GP consultations for asthma and other lower respiratory diseases (LRD) and air pollution in London was investigated. METHODS: Time-series analysis of daily numbers of GP consultations controlling for time trends, seasonal factors, day of week cycles, influenza, weather, pollen levels, and serial correlation was performed. Consultation data were available from between 268 718 and 295 740 registered patients from 45-47 London practices contributing to the General Practice Research Database during 1992-4. RESULTS: Positive associations, weakly significant and consistent across lags, were observed between asthma consultations and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) in children and particulate matter of less than 10 microm in diameter (PM10) in adults, and between other LRD consultations and sulphur dioxide (SO2) in children. A consistently negative association with ozone in children was observed in both disease categories. The effect estimates of most pollutants were much larger when analysed separately by season, particularly in the children: percentage change in asthma consultations during the warm season (April-September) for a 10-90th percentile increase in 24 hour NO2 lagged by one day = 13.2% (95% CI 5.6 to 21.3), with CO = 11.4% (95% CI 3.3 to 20.0), and with SO2 = 9.0% (95% CI 2.2 to 16.2). In adults the only association consistent over different lag periods was with PM10 = 9.2% (3.7 to 15.1). The associations of pollution and consultations for LRD were increased mainly in the winter months: percentage change in consultations by children in winter with NO2 = 7.2% (95% CI 2.8 to 11.6), CO = 6.2% (95% CI 2.3 to 10.2), and SO2 = 5.8% (95% CI 1.6 to 10.2). CONCLUSIONS: There are associations between air pollution and daily consultations for asthma and other lower respiratory disease in London. The most significant associations were observed in children and the most important pollutants were NO2, CO, and SO2. In adults the only consistent association was with PM10.  (+info)

Galileo imaging of atmospheric emissions from Io. (4/445)

The Galileo spacecraft has detected diffuse optical emissions from Io in high-resolution images acquired while the satellite was eclipsed by Jupiter. Three distinct components make up Io's visible emissions. Bright blue glows of more than 300 kilorayleighs emanate from volcanic plumes, probably due to electron impact on molecular sulfur dioxide. Weaker red emissions, possibly due to atomic oxygen, are seen along the limbs, brighter on the pole closest to the plasma torus. A faint green glow appears concentrated on the night side of Io, possibly produced by atomic sodium. Io's disk-averaged emission diminishes with time after entering eclipse, whereas the localized blue glows brighten instead.  (+info)

Point source sulphur dioxide peaks and hospital presentations for asthma. (5/445)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effect on hospital presentations for asthma of brief exposures to sulphur dioxide (SO2) (within the range 0-8700 micrograms/m3) emanating from two point sources in a remote rural city of 25,000 people. METHODS: A time series analysis of SO2 concentrations and hospital presentations for asthma was undertaken at Mount Isa where SO2 is released into the atmosphere by a copper smelter and a lead smelter. The study examined 5 minute block mean SO2 concentrations and daily hospital presentations for asthma, wheeze, or shortness of breath. Generalised linear models and generalised additive models based on a Poisson distribution were applied. RESULTS: There was no evidence of any positive relation between peak SO2 concentrations and hospital presentations or admissions for asthma, wheeze, or shortness of breath. CONCLUSION: Brief exposures to high concentrations of SO2 emanating from point sources at Mount Isa do not cause sufficiently serious symptoms in asthmatic people to require presentation to hospital.  (+info)

Respiratory tract inflammation during the induction of chronic bronchitis in rats: role of C-fibres. (6/445)

The hypothesis that chronic stimulation of C-fibres by inhaled irritants contributes to the inflammatory changes that occur during the development of chronic bronchitis was tested. The effect of neonatal capsaicin pretreatment on the development of respiratory tract inflammation was examined in a rat model of chronic bronchitis induced by SO2 exposure. Adult capsaicin- and vehicle-treated rats were exposed to SO2 (250 parts per million (ppm) 5 h x day(-1)) for one day, 2 weeks or 4 weeks. Nasal (NL), airway (AL) and bronchoalveolar (BAL) lavages were performed and the number and types of cells in the lavage fluids measured. SO2-induced changes in ventilation were also measured on day 1 of SO2 exposure and in the 3rd and 5th week of exposure. In the vehicle-treated rats, neutrophils became elevated in NL after just one day of SO2 exposure, in AL after 2 weeks, and in the BAL after 4 weeks. In comparison to vehicle animals, more neutrophils were recovered in the AL of capsaicin-treated rats after one day of SO2 (p=0.012), and in the BAL after 2 or 4 weeks (p=0.004 and p=0.01, respectively). On day 1, SO2 caused a transient increase in tidal volume and a sustained decrease in frequency that was not different in capsaicin- and vehicle-treated rats. With continued exposure, these ventilatory responses to SO2 were attenuated in both groups of rats. These data support the hypothesis that the presence of C-fibres limits or delays the inflammation that occurs during the development of chronic bronchitis induced by SO2 exposure. The protective effect of C-fibres is not the result of ventilatory responses to stimulation of these afferents.  (+info)

Sulphur dioxide sensitivity and plasma antioxidants in adult subjects with asthma. (7/445)

OBJECTIVES: To screen adult subjects with asthma for sensitivity to inhaled sulphur dioxide (SO2) and identify subject characteristics associated with that sensitivity. Medication use, symptoms, and plasma antioxidant nutrients between SO2 responders and non-responders were compared. METHODS: Adult subjects (ages 18-39 years) with asthma were exposed to 0.5 ppm SO2 for 10 minutes during moderate exercise. Pulmonary function tests and symptom ratings were assessed before and after exposure (n = 47). A subject was classified as sensitive to SO2 if forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) showed a drop > or = 8% over baseline. Blood samples were obtained from subjects (n = 38) before the SO2 challenge; plasma ascorbate, alpha-tocopherol, retinol, carotenoids, and lipids were measured. RESULTS: Of the 47 subjects screened, 53% had a drop in FEV1 > or = 8% (ranging from -8% to -44%). Among those 25 subjects, the mean drop in FEV1 was -17.2%. Baseline pulmonary function indices (FEV1% of predicted and FEV1/FVC% (forced vital capacity)) did not predict sensitivity to SO2. Although use of medication was inversely related to changes in pulmonary function after SO2 (p < 0.05), both SO2 responders and non-responders were represented in each medication category. Total symptom scores after exposure were significantly correlated with changes in FEV1 (p < 0.05), FVC (p < 0.05), and peak expiratory flow (PEF) (p < 0.01) but not forced expiratory flow between 25% and 75% vital capacity (FEF25-75). Plasma beta-carotene concentrations were inversely associated with PEF values and ascorbate concentrations were inversely associated with FEV1 and FEV1/FVC (p = 0.05 in all cases). High density lipoprotein concentrations were positively correlated with FEV1% of predicted (p < 0.05) and inversely correlated with change in FEF25-75 (p < 0.05) after SO2. CONCLUSION: These results show that the response to SO2 among adults with mild to moderate asthma is very diverse. Severity of asthma defined by medication category was not a predictor of sensitivity to SO2. Lung function values were associated with beta-carotene and ascorbate concentrations in plasma; however, plasma antioxidant nutrient concentrations were not associated with sensitivity to inhaled SO2.  (+info)

Climate change as a regulator of tectonics on Venus. (8/445)

Tectonics, volcanism, and climate on Venus may be strongly coupled. Large excursions in surface temperature predicted to follow a global or near-global volcanic event diffuse into the interior and introduce thermal stresses of a magnitude sufficient to influence widespread tectonic deformation. This sequence of events accounts for the timing and many of the characteristics of deformation in the ridged plains of Venus, the most widely preserved volcanic terrain on the planet.  (+info)

Sulfur dioxide is sometimes used as a preservative (E number: E220[2]) in alcoholic drinks,[3] or dried apricots and other dried fruits due to its antimicrobial properties. The preservative is used to maintain the appearance of the fruit rather than prevent rotting. This can give fruit a distinctive chemical taste. Sulfur dioxide is also a good reductant. In the presence of water, sulfur dioxide is able to decolorize substances that can be reduced by it; thus making it a useful reducing bleach for papers and delicate materials such as clothes. This bleaching effect normally does not last very long. Oxygen in the atmosphere reoxidizes the reduced dyes, restoring the color. Sulfur dioxide is also used to make sulfuric acid, being converted to sulfur trioxide, and then to oleum, which is made into sulfuric acid. Sulfur dioxide for this purpose is made when sulfur combines with oxygen. This is called the contact process. According to Claude Ribbe in The Crime of Napoleon, sulfur dioxide gas was used ...

It is a major air pollutant that is colorless and has a pungent smell, released from the combustion of fossil fuels such as coal and oil, in different industries, and it is also a product of the burning fuels in automobiles released from the vehicular exhausts. Natural sources of Sulphur dioxide include forest fires, plant decay and volcanic eruptions. Sulphur dioxide can enter our bodies in three ways: Ingestion, Inhalation and direct contact. As Sulphur dioxide is used as a food preservative, it can easily be ingested. High concentration of Sulphur dioxide on a long-term basis can result in breathing problems, respiratory illnesses such as Bronchitis, Emphysema and Pulmonary Edema, alterations in pulmonary defenses, and aggravation of existing cardio vascular diseases. Furthermore, there are also some precautionary measures that common man can take to ensure minimum interaction with Sulphur dioxide. These include the usage of Mass Transportation systems like Public Transport to make sure that ...
Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) along with nitrous oxides, are two leading causes of acid rain. When SO2 is emitted into the atmosphere, it reacts with other chemicals to form sulfuric acid, which then returns to the surface through precipitation. Sulfur dioxide affects the lungs and makes it hard to breath. Sulfur dioxide reacts to form sulfate particles which when inhaled frequently enough can cause asthma or bronchitis. In operations with SO2 Gas Cylinders, where Sulfur Dioxide gas may accidently be released in large concentrations, it can cause immediate danger to life and health. In these applications, Heil provides emergency release scrubbers to reduce the risk of excessive exposure and contain the release. ...

I was reading (in my HVAC/R text) that sulfur dioxide was used as a dual purpose refrigerant/lubricant in some machines in the 19th century, and was used on British warships up until the 1940s. I was wondering if there were any similar modern uses for sulfur dioxide? Also wondering if there are other modern refrigerants that are used as dual purpose?
In the summer months, the CFS conducted a targeted food surveillance project to assess the use of sulphur dioxide in fresh meat. Though commonly added to foods like dried fruits and fruit juices, sulphur dioxide is not permitted to be added to fresh, chilled or frozen meat. The project had been conducted after repeated detection of the use of the non-permitted chemical in fresh meat in recent years. Samples include pork, beef and mutton collected from various meat stalls. Of the 222 samples tested, the overall satisfactory rate was 95%, with 11 unsatisfactory results. Some involved repeat offenders. The unsatisfactory samples included nine fresh beef and two fresh pork samples with sulphur dioxide levels ranging from 20ppm and 390ppm. As sulphur dioxide is water soluble and of low toxicity, it does not pose serious health effects to the public. The CFS has taken follow-up action including issuing warning letters to the retailers concerned and taking further samples for testing. When there was ...

By Leah Burrows, SEAS Communications. For more than 15 years, the Chinese government has invested billions of dollars to clean up its deadly air pollution, focusing intensely on reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide from coal-burning power plants.. These efforts have succeeded in reducing sulfur dioxide emissions, but extreme pollution events are still a regular wintertime occurrence and experts estimate that more than 1 million people die per year in China from particulate air pollution.. New research from Harvard may explain why. It shows that a key to reducing extreme wintertime air pollution may be reducing formaldehyde emissions rather than sulfur dioxide.. The research is published in Geophysical Research Letters [2].. We show that policies aimed at reducing formaldehyde emissions may be much more effective at reducing extreme wintertime haze than policies aimed at reducing only sulfur dioxide, said Jonathan M. Moch, a graduate student at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering ...

The Clean Air Transport Rule is a proposed rule of the EPA requiring significant reductions in sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions that cross state lines. By 2014, the rule and other state and EPA actions would reduce power plant SO2 emissions by 71 percent over 2005 levels and NOx emissions by 52 percent, according to EPA estimates. The proposed rules will replace the EPAs 2005 Clean Air Interstate Rule, which was vacated in July 2008 by the D.C. Circuit Court. Acting under federal court order, the Obama administration proposed the new air-quality rules on July 6, 2010, for coal-burning power plants. The proposed rule would require NOx and SO2 emission reductions in 2012 and additional SO2 emission reductions in 2014.[24]. On August 21, 2012, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. ruled 2-1 against the Transport Rule. The court determined that the rule forced states to be accountable for pollution that was not theirs, potentially making some states responsible for ...

Sulphur dioxide (E220) and other sulphites (E221, E222, E223, E224, E226, E227 and E228) are used as preservatives in a wide range of foods, especially soft drinks, sausages, burgers, and dried fruits and vegetables.. Sulphur dioxide is produced naturally when wine and beer are made, and is sometimes added to wine. Anyone who has asthma or allergic rhinitis may react to inhaling sulphur dioxide. A few people with asthma have had an attack after drinking acidic drinks containing sulphites, but this isnt thought to be very common.. Food labelling rules require pre-packed food sold in the UK, and the rest of the European Union, to show clearly on the label if it contains sulphur dioxide or sulphites at levels above 10mg per kg or per litre. ...

Wednesday, April 9, 2008 Hawaii Volcanoes National Park remains closed today after high levels of sulfur dioxide vented from Kilauea. Continuing southeastern winds will exist through most of the day, causing much of the contamination to exist elsewhere on the Big Island. In addition to the park, the Volcano House hotel and Kilauea Military Camp remain evacuated. Volcano Charter School remains closed for a second day. Sulfur dioxide can cause irritation to the nose, eyes, throat, and respiratory tract. Residents in the area are recommended to avoid smoking, stay indoors, and drink plenty of fluids, among other suggestions. Residents living northeast of the volcano should be prepared to evacuate, mainly those living in Mauna Loa Estates, Ohia Estates, Volcano Village, the Keauhou Ranch area and the Volcano Golf Course region. Trade winds on Thursday may return the conditions to normal. However, people in the region should remain prepared to evacuate if necessary. ...
It has been claimed that the team has managed to nail down an alternative to sulphur dioxide in wine, which might be able to address the rising concerns on the same lines. The team has found two extracts contained within wine to replace sulphur dioxide, which is used to preserve wine, but it can cause serious reactions too including asthma attacks.. European researchers have made progress towards finding an alternative to adding sulphur dioxide to red wine and other foodstuffs, such as dried fruit, holding out the hope of making future festive seasons healthier for millions, said the European Commission, which has added some 3 million euros to the project.. It has apparently also found that those who drank the wine with the extracts could actually not figure out any major difference from the standard wine.. As of now, names of the extracts have been kept under covers. There are fair chances of unveiling new wines in May in order to see if consumers would be able to approve them or not.. ...
Ios atmosphere is very thin and composed mostly of sulfur dioxide, with some sulfur monoxide, sodium chloride, and atomic sulfur and oxygen. Ios volcanoes contribute most of the sulfur dioxide, but its atmospheric concentration is also maintained by sunlight-driven sublimation of frozen sulfur dioxide on the surface. Despite its many volcanoes around which the ground literally sizzles, the surface of Io is very cold, averaging around -150?C. The negligible atmosphere does nothing to trap in heat. The plumes from its many volcanoes probably freeze almost instantly and drift back down as sulfur dioxide snow. It is interesting and unusual for a volatile compound such as sulfur dioxide to pile up and blanket Ios entire surface when it would be expected to be lost in space or perhaps concentrated in Ios cold polar regions. On moons and on rocky planets with exospheres, volatiles such as light gases eventually escape into space. Even though much sulfur dioxide is spewed from Ios volcanoes and ...
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is a pollutant gas produced by various human activities, including ore processing, petroleum refining, the operation of industrial boilers and the burning of oil and coal at power plants. Although natural processes like volcanic activity and biological decay are responsible for half of the worlds atmospheric sulfur, emissions caused by human activity far exceed natural emissions in the developed countries.. Sulfur dioxide is a respiratory irritant that can be harmful at high concentrations when breathed by people who are very young, very old or already suffering from health problems. It can also damage vegetation, corrode building materials and contribute to the production of airborne particulates and acid rain.. ...

Red muscadine grape (Vitis rotundifolia Michx.) wines are very susceptible to browning and overall loss of color quality during processing and storage. This study examined the effects of three pH levels (2.90, 3.20, 3.80), three sulfur dioxide levels (25, 50, 75 ppm free SO2), three storage temperatures (20°C, 30°C, 40°C), and three storage times (0, 3, 9 months). A higher pH resulted in a loss of color intensity and redness and increased browning during storage for nine months. Wine with lower pH had a greater loss of free, unpolymerized anthocyanins, which indicated greater polymerization in lower pH wine. Sulfur dioxide levels higher than 25 ppm free SO2 severely bleached the color of red muscadine wine and lessened browning in high pH wine only. High SO2 levels also lessened browning of wine stored at 20°C, but not at higher storage temperatures. Higher storage temperature greatly increased browning and anthocyanin loss during nine months of storage. Wine stored at 30°C or 40°C had ...

The short-term effects of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) on total, cardiovascular and respiratory mortality in 30 European cities participating in the Air Pollution on Health: a European Approach (APHEA)-2 project were investigated.. The association was examined using hierarchical models implemented in two stages. In the first stage, data from each city were analysed separately, whereas in the second stage, the city-specific air pollution estimates were regressed on city-specific covariates to obtain overall estimates and to explore sources of possible heterogeneity.. A significant association of NO2 with total, cardiovascular and respiratory mortality was found, with stronger effects on cause-specific mortality. There was evidence of confounding in respiratory mortality with black smoke and sulphur dioxide. The effect of NO2 on total and cardiovascular mortality was observed mainly in western and southern European cities, and was larger when smoking prevalence was lower and household gas consumption ...

Sulphur dioxide, or SO2, belongs to the family of sulphur oxide gases (SOx). These gases dissolve easily in water. Sulphur is prevalent in all raw materials, including crude oil, coal, and ore that contains common metals like aluminium, copper, zinc, lead, and iron. SOx gases are formed when fuel-containing sulphur, such as coal and oil, is burned, and when gasoline is extracted from oil, or metals are extracted from ore. SO2 dissolves in water vapour to form acid, and interacts with other gases and particles in the air to form sulfates and other products that can be harmful to people and their environment ...

We commonly think of pollutants as contaminants that make the environment dirty or impure. A vivid example is sulphur dioxide, a by-product of industrial activity. High levels of sulphur dioxide cause breathing problems. Too much causes acid rain. Sulphur dioxide has a direct effect on health and the environment. Carbon dioxide, on the other hand, is a naturally occuring gas that existed in the atmosphere long before humans. Plants need it to survive. The CO2 greenhouse effect keeps our climate from freezing over. How can CO2 be considered a pollutant?

2001 Quality Assurance Report. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY. Gaseous Monitoring Network The APCD routinely monitors four gaseous pollutants: carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Fifty-eight accuracy audits were conducted in 2001. All but three of these audits were within the 10% full-scale analyzer response error considered acceptable by the APCD.. EPA interlaboratory comparisons were conducted during 2001 for carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. The ozone comparisons were invalidated due to faulty NPAP equipment. Interlab comparisons are included for 18 gaseous analyzers. All interlab results were within the acceptable EPA performance criterion of 15% error, except one. It was determined that the instrument in question was in need of repair and recalibration.. Overall data recovery for the gaseous monitoring network was 92% in 2001. During this time only one of the analyzers in the APCD network failed to meet the EPA 75% data ...
True flaws, known as objective flaws, occur because of chemical imbalances in the finished products. Wine is primarily of water (80%-90%). The remaining 10%-20% is made up of hundreds or even thousands of different chemical or molecular components. Here, problems may arise. The first type of subjective flaw is off-odors resulting from sulfur compounds. Sulfur has been used since Roman times as a preservative. However, in the wrong concentration, bad things happen. Sulfur dioxide (SO2)* is characterized by a pungent smell of burnt matches, often accompanied by an unpleasant tickling sensation in the nose and throat. The effects of SO2 are directly related to pH. The more acidic the wine, the more pronounced the sulfur dioxide will be. Another compound, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), is characterized by an odor of rotten eggs, resulting from the reduction of elemental sulfur. Yeasts need nitrogen to grow and multiply. In a nitrogen-deficient must, yeasts scavenge for this element by breaking apart amino ...

Supersonic jet beam of SO₂ seeded in Ar was excited by 3021A laser radiation and the resulting luminescence spectrum was recorded in the 3060-5000A range. At very low SO₂ concentration two different phosphorescence spectra were distinguished from the F-band resonance fluorescence spectrum when proper optical alignment was used. One phosphorescence spectrum was recognized as the ³B₁--,¹A₁ band system while the second was assigned as the previously undetected ³A₂--,¹A₁ band system. The distinction between the two band systems was based mainly on the observation that each system reached vibrational equilibrium at SO₂ pressure different from the other. Five progressions of energy separation 955 cm⁻¹ were identified as V₁ progressions of ³A₂ state. The zero order values for V₂ is around 417cm⁻¹ is around 1062 cm-¹, on the other hand, were estimated from a tentative vibrational analysis of the resulting ³A₂--,¹A₁ phosphorescence spectrum. The formation mechanism ...

During the summer of 1994, a cross-sectional epidemiological study, in which the pulmonary function of children in Tehran was compared with pulmonary function in children in a rural town in Iran, was conducted. Four hundred children aged 5-11 y were studied. Daytime ambient nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter were measured with portable devices, which were placed in the childrens neighborhoods on the days of study. Levels of these ambient substances were markedly higher in urban Tehran than in rural areas. Childrens parents were questioned about home environmental exposures (including heating source and environmental tobacco smoke) and the childrens respiratory symptoms. Pulmonary function was assessed, both by spirometry and peak expiratory flow meter. Forced expiratory volume in 1 s and forced vital capacity-as a percentage of predicted for age, sex and height-were significantly lower in urban children than in rural children. Both measurements evidenced significant ...

However, the EKC is a controversial idea and the econometric evidence that is claimed to support it is not very robust (Stern, 2004). It is undoubtedly true that some dimensions of environmental quality have improved in developed countries as they have become richer. City air and rivers have become cleaner since the mid 20th Century and in some countries forests have expanded. But the overall human burden on the global environment has continued to increase and the contribution of developed countries to problems such as climate change has not been reduced. Carbon dioxide emissions have declined over recent decades in only a few European countries. Therefore, it does not seem to be generally true that economic growth eventually reduces environmental degradation. There is also evidence that emerging economies take action to reduce severe pollution (Stern, 2004). For example, Japan cut sulfur dioxide emissions in the early 1970s following a rapid increase in pollution when its income was still below ...
