Although the effects of elevated ozone on aboveground carbon (C) assimilation are well understood, its effects on soil C fluxes are less certain. Mesocosms taken from a lowland raised bog in northern England were exposed in open-top chambers for 2 years to ambient air or ambient air plus ozone elevated for 8 h day−1 by an average of 49 ppb in summer and 10 ppb in winter. The effects of elevated ozone on methane emission and ecosystem dark respiration were measured throughout this period, along with soil and plant variables. Methane emissions were significantly reduced, by about 25%, by elevated ozone during midsummer periods of both years, but no significant effect of ozone was found during the winter periods. Dark ecosystem respiration was not significantly affected by elevated ozone. There was no evidence that effects of elevated ozone on methane emissions were mediated through changes in aboveground plant biomass or soil water dissolved organic C concentrations. Our results imply that the ...
Ozone therapy involves the administration of ozone gas into the body. This is done to help treat wounds and also in the treatment of diseases. Ozone is a gas that does not have any color and is used by doctors to treat different medical problems. This gas, once administered into the body, helps by disinfecting and treating various diseases. The most important benefit to using ozone therapy is it helps to fuel the immune system. When used in hospitals, the ozone gas is sourced from medical-grade oxygen sources. How does it work? Ozone therapy does its work by causing an interruption in the unhealthy conditions in the human body. One of the benefits it provides is that of stopping the proliferation of harmful bacteria. Ozone therapy also helps to prevent infections in the body from spreading. In fact, it has also proved to be effective in the treatment of infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa. Once injected into the body, ozone gas helps to remove infected cells. When these
What is Ozone Therapy?. Ozone is a natural gas that forms in the atmosphere and serves as a vital filter and barrier to ultraviolet solar rays. Did you know that Ozone also has medicinal uses? Whereas the oxygen we breathe is 2 combined oxygen molecules (O2), Ozone is 3 combined oxygen molecules (O3).. Medicinal Ozone therapy utilizes an Ozone generator to create a mixture of Oxygen and Ozone. The Ozone Generator creates Ozone by passing pure oxygen through a high-voltage, high-frequency electrical discharge. This electrochemical reaction produces a gas mixture with concentrated Ozone. The concentrated ozone and dosages used are adjusted and individualized to the pathology, patient, and the desired treatment.. The Ozone, when in contact with the organism, produces very important therapeutic chemical changes. It is widely used as an adjuvant medical treatment in a wide range of diseases. It is also used as an anti-aging strategy, to improve athletes performance and to gain wellness and quality ...
The main goal of the conventional periodontal therapy is to control infection and thereby curb disease progression. The mechanical removal of the oral biofilm and adjunctive use of antimicrobial agents have been the conventional methods for periodontal therapy. However, no consensus has been reached on whether conventional periodontal therapy can eliminate periodontal pathogens.1,2,3 It has been known that medical ozone therapy eliminated 260 different pathogens. Thus, applications of medical ozone may provide a potential benefit in the treatment of periodontal diseases by reducing and eradicating subgingival periodontopathogenic species in inaccessible sites.4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11. Applications of medical ozone are a new treatment modality that has been developing rapidly within various medical specialties since the 1930s. In 1933, Dr. E.A. Fish, first used ozone on a regular basis in his dental practice, and published numerous papers on the subject.4,8 Ozone (O3) is a triatomic molecule, consisting ...

Increased UV-B through stratospheric ozone depletion leads to an increased chemical activity in the lower atmosphere (the troposphere). The effect of stratospheric ozone depletion on tropospheric ozone is small (though significant) compared to the ozone generated anthropogenically in areas already experiencing air pollution. Modeling and experimental studies suggest that the impacts of stratospheric ozone depletion on tropospheric ozone are different at different altitudes and for different chemical regimes. As a result the increase in ozone due to stratospheric ozone depletion may be greater in polluted regions. Attributable effects on concentrations are expected only in regions where local emissions make minor contributions. The vertical distribution of NOx (NO + NO2), the emission of volatile organic compounds and the abundance of water vapor, are important influencing factors. The long-term nature of stratospheric ozone depletion means that even a small increase in tropospheric ozone ...
Ozone or O3 is a highly charged oxygen molecule with increased oxygenating properties. It has been around for over 150 years used to treat infections. wounds and multiple diseases.. With higher levels of oxygen in the tissue, bacteria and viruses and defective tissue cells are killed. The healthy cells are stimulated and multiply more rapidly.. Ozone therapies are thought to benefit patients by stimulating white blood cell production, killing viruses, improving oxygenation, helping the body to fight infections and cancers, stimulating the bodys metabolism.. In Germany, ozone therapy has been widely used since the late 1950s. It is widely used by doctors and practitioners as a treatment for a wide range of degenerative conditions including cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, liver, and kidney disease. In 1931, the Biochemist Otto Warburg was granted the Nobel Prize for discovering that anaerobic cancer cells die in oxygen. This makes ozone therapy an extremely important modality in the treatment ...

In recent years, ozone therapy as an effective therapeutic method has become more developed and well known. Russia and Cuba have recognized it in their legislation; it is regulated in more than 76% of the Autonomous Regions of Spain; and in Italy four Regions have specified the criteria for practicing it, in addition to two favorable court decisions. Ozone therapy is characterized by the simplicity of its application, its great effectiveness, good tolerance, and by the virtual absence of side effects. This document, based on the latest books and scientific articles on the subject, updates the recent findings that justify, from the scientific point of view, the medical use of ozone. For many years the application of ozone in medical practice was not well accepted due to unfounded ideas about its toxicity in relation to the high concentrations used in industry. As with any healing technique, ozone therapy is dependent on the dosage. It is important to understand that in clinical practice the ...
Two different morphotypes of peas (Pisum sativum L.), the leafy form Ilgiai and the subleafy form Profi, were examined under ozone exposure. A day after exposure, adverse effects of ozone on Ilgiai morphometric features were observed, while certain processes in Profi were stimulated. After three days of exposure, the leaf area of leafy peas was reduced by 34%, while in subleafy peas it increased by 33% under the 160 μg m-3 ozone level. Chlorophyll and carotenoid content in leaves of leafy peas decreased with increasing exposition time and ozone concentration. However, a linear dependence between the content of photosynthetic pigments in leaves of subleafy peas and exposition time / ozone concentration was determined, and only the highest ozone level significantly decreased the content of those pigments. The ratio of hexoses to sucrose increased in leafy peas after one day of ozone exposure, but it tendentiously decreased as the time of exposure increased. The same trends were observed ...
Its on everyones lips, especially during the summer months when photochemical smog engulfs the worlds cities. Environmental pollution and climate change both contribute to the increasingly frequent incidences observed. While this is a major health problem in itself, there are now indications that elevated ozone levels also raise the allergen content of pollen. A team from the Medical University of Vienna and the Austrian Institute of Technology have investigated the reasons for this phenomenon. Ozone Stimulates Rye The team behind project leader Prof. Rudolf Valenta of the Centre for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology at the Medical University of Vienna cultivated two different rye cultivars under controlled environmental conditions. One group of plants was exposed to elevated ozone concentrations (79 parts per billion) for part of the time. This value is more than three times the normal ozone concentration at ground level, i.e. 22 ppb, and corresponds to the health-endangering peak ...
Long familiar in major urban areas, smog - what we experts call ground-level ozone pollution - is quickly becoming a serious problem in the rural mountain west, thanks to rapid expansion in oil and gas development. Smog can cause serious health impacts like aggravated asthma, chronic bronchitis, heart attacks, and even premature death. In areas like the Upper Green River Basin in Wyoming, smog levels have sometimes rivaled those in Los Angeles.. Now, the Environmental Protection Agency and several western states are putting the pieces in place to fix this problem: EPA through proposed revisions to the health-based ozone standard that will better protect people from pollution, and states like Wyoming and Colorado through strong policies that are helping to reduce the sources of ozone pollution in the oil and gas industry.. In official public comments filed this week with EPA, EDF and a broad coalition of western environmental and conservation groups supported a more protective ozone standard ...

Skin aging can be inhibited, and skin structure can be restored through neutralization of the above-mentioned pathological processes thereby eliminating the reason, but not only the consequence - formation of wrinkles. Exactly this is the target of ozone therapy. Ozone is a substance created by the nature, produces a complex, integral effect on the human body. For treatment of problem skin and wrinkles it is recommended to use the methods of local and systemic ozone therapy: by local route - subcutaneous ozone injections and ozonized olive oil in the form of face packs and for massage; by systemic route - intravenous drop-by-drop infusions (drips) of ozonated solutions, major and minor autohaemotherapy with ozone, rectal ozone insufflations. The approach to treatment and choice of methods are strictly individual for each patient ...

Multivariate data analysis methods were applied to study the geographical and temporal distribution of tropospheric ozone in Catalonia (North-East Spain). Ozone data were collected during the period 2000-2004 in 41 sampling stations. Data analysis by multivariate curve resolution alternating least squares (MCR-ALS) allowed the recognition of three sub-regions within Catalonia according to their ozone variation patterns. Representation of loadings by means of geographical information systems (GIS) allowed a better visualisation of these areas. Daily, weekly and annual ozone profiles were determined for each sub-region. Principal component analysis (PCA) was applied within each sub-region to unravel the relationship between ozone variation and some other parameters, such as atmospheric pollutants (SO2, H2S, NO, NO2, CO and particulate matter), as well as meteorological variables (temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, pressure, precipitation and wind speed ...
Abstract In this work, an in-situ ozone treatment is carried out to improve the interface thermal stability of HfO2/Al2O3 gate stack on germanium (Ge) substrate. The micrometer scale level of HfO2/Al2O3 gate stack on Ge is studied using conductive atomic force microscopy (AFM) with a conductive tip. The initial results indicate that comparing with a non in-situ ozone treated sample, the interface thermal stability of the sample with an in-situ ozone treatment can be substantially improved after annealing. As a result, void-free surface, low conductive spots, low leakage current density, and relative high breakdown voltage high-κ/Ge are obtained. A detailed analysis is performed to confirm the origins of the changes. All results indicate that in-situ ozone treatment is a promising method to improve the interface properties of Ge-based three-dimensional (3D) devices in future technology nodes.. ...
The potential mechanisms of action of ozone therapy are reviewed in this paper. The therapeutic efficacy of ozone therapy may be partly due the controlled and moderate oxidative stress produced by the reactions of ozone with several biological components. The line between effectiveness and toxicity of ozone may be dependent on the strength of the oxidative stress. As with exercise, it is well known that moderate exercise is good for health, whereas excessive exercise is not. Severe oxidative stress activates nuclear transcriptional factor kappa B (NFκB), resulting in an inflammatory response and tissue injury via the production of COX2, PGE2, and cytokines. However, moderate oxidative stress activates another nuclear transcriptional factor, nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2). Nrf2 then induces the transcription of antioxidant response elements (ARE). Transcription of ARE results in the production of numerous antioxidant enzymes, such as SOD, GPx, glutathione-s-transferase(GSTr),

AMHERST, Mass. - A new study assessing the influence of species diversity of canopy trees on the amount of ozone precursors a forest emits suggests that atmospheric chemistry models in use now may underestimate the importance of tree species mix and size to ozone pollution, says lead author Alexander Bryan, a postdoctoral fellow in the Northeast Climate Science Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.. Details appear in an early online edition of the journal, Atmospheric Environment. As Bryan explains, Ozone pollution models do really well at predicting air quality in urban areas because thats where the problem started. Our atmospheric chemistry models have all been tested and optimized for urban air quality studies. But when we try to put those same models to the test in the forest regime without cars and factories, the models break down.. Current models usually represent the forest as a single dominant tree species or a blend of a few, so they may not capture the right mix of ...
Footnote: Ground-level ozone is formed from pollutants emitted from cars, power plants, and other sources. The national ambient air quality standard for ozone is 0.070 parts per million (ppm); concentrations above 0.070 ppm are considered unhealthy, especially for sensitive groups such as children, asthmatics, and the elderly. Ozone concentrations are measured and averaged over 8-hour testing periods; then, the number of days per year exceeding the standard is calculated. For counties with more than one monitoring site, data are reported for sites recording the most days above 0.070 ppm. Data are limited because (i) monitoring stations are usually in urban areas, and (ii) ozone samples are taken every three days or during times of the year when air pollution is very high. In addition, not all counties are monitored, and data are only provided for counties with monitors that meet completeness criteria. State-level data are averaged from county-level data and should be treated with caution. N/A ...
Wastewater ozone treatment is an advanced form of wastewater treatment. It uses the highly reactive properties of ozone, combined with biological and other impurities to render them harmless or converted into matter that can be easily removed and treated further. Questions have been raised about the high energy requirement needed to convert oxygen into ozone, but the advantages of no residue and odor have created an effective lobby for its continued use for wastewater treatment. What is ozone, primary treatment of wastewater and wastewater ozone treatment Is a form of advanced wastewater treatment are the topics dealt with here.

Ozone is probably one of the most miraculous healing therapies available on our planet at this time. Through its oxygenating power, it successfully treats and cures a wide range of serious degenerative conditions including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver, and kidney disease. More Than Hot Air Ozone is very potent electrified or energized oxygen (O3). Oxygen is more essential to life than food and water. Without it, we would die in minutes but in big cities the levels in the air are decreasing, causing widespread ill health. Oxygen is carried to every part of the body by the red blood cells and is essential for the functioning of every cell in the body, as well as stimulating a healthy immune system. Ozone also forms a protective layer around the earth; but some scientists point to the danger of high ozone readings as the cause of respiratory problems, so many are prejudiced, dismissive, and simply refuse to look into it. Yet ozone therapy has been in use since the 1800s; and in ...

Ozone strengthens your immune system - Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. When the immune system is overactive (as in auto-immune disease), ozone will calm it down. Conversely, when the immune system is under-active as in chronic infections, ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from its activation of immune related messenger molecules, so called cytokines, like gamma interferon, interleukin-2, colony stimulating factor, and TNF-alpha, to name just a few.. Ozone kills bacteria and viruses on contact - Ozone interferes with the metabolism of bacterium-cells, most likely through inhibiting and blocking the operation of the enzymatic control system. A sufficient amount of ozone breaks through the cell membrane, and this leads to the destruction of the bacteria. Unlike bacteria, viruses multiply only within the host cell. They transform protein of the host cell into proteins of their own. Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the ...

Ozone is a gas that is present naturally in the atmosphere. Chemical formula of the ozone is O3 because three oxygen atoms are present in an ozone molecule .On the basis of presence of Ozone, the atmosphere is divided into two regions, troposphere and stratosphere. The troposphere is the closest region from the earth (10- 16 kilometers from the earth surface) and about 10% of the atmospheric ozone is present in this zone. Similarly the stratosphere is 50 kilometers altitude and about 90 % of the ozone is present in this region. Ozone was firstly produced in the laboratory by the European researcher C. F. Schonbein in 1839. Ozone was firstly used commercially in 1907 in municipal water supply treatment in Nice and in 1910 in St. Petersburg the general ozone generation. In order to produce ozone molecule, firstly we split the diatomic oxygen. The resulting free radical oxygen reacts with diatomic oxygen to form the tri-atomic ozone molecule. Nevertheless, in order to break the bond between two ...

Air pollution by ozone causes airway irritation and inflammation, representing a major health issue. Ozone is highly reactive-eliciting rapid and dose-dependent disruption of the respiratory barrier with acute desquamation and necrosis of epithelial cells, and inducing inflammation and airway hyperreactivity. Chronic ozone exposure leads to rarefication of alveolar septae with emphysema and fibrosis, and chronic lung inflammation mimicking changes associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a critical effector in ozone-induced inflammation, systemic metabolic and neural hyperreactivity and cell death. In addition, it is now clearly recognized that a strong innate immune response to ozone may contribute to ozone-induced pathology and and alteration of the lungs response to infection.In this Research Topic, we aim to review ozone-induced respiratory pathology and disease based on (i) human exposure data and epidemiological evidence; (ii) on whole animal

Why should we worry about ozone?. Ozone is an extremely harmful gas -- particularly for those involved in outdoor activities. Just a few hours of exposure to it can trigger serious health problems, especially among those who are already suffering from respiratory and asthmatic problems. Ozone worsens symptoms of asthma, leads to lung function impairment and damages lung tissues. Chest pain, coughing, nausea, headaches and chest congestion are common symptoms. It can even worsen heart disease, bronchitis and emphysema. It increases emergency hospital visits and admissions related to respiratory diseases.. Scientists inform that ozone is a powerful oxidiser, which means it can damage cells in a process akin to rusting. Children and the elderly are at special risk. International studies have also found a strong association between ozone and daily premature death counts; deaths related to ozone exposure are more likely among people with pre-existing diseases. Ozone that gets created in the polluted ...
The answer to this is not known. Daily experimental ozone exposure does affect the post-natal development of the respiratory tract in nonhuman primates. Some epidemiological studies suggest that young adults raised in areas of higher air pollution have a greater degree of airway obstruction than similar adults raised in areas of lower air pollution. Also, there is some evidence that long-term ozone exposure may increase the risk of developing new asthma, particularly in males. On the other hand, because there are many factors (genetic and environmental) that may interact to cause asthma, long-term ozone exposure alone does not appear to account for a large part of the asthma or other respiratory disease in the population living in some cities of the United States with high ozone levels..

Ozone, a common outdoor air pollutant is a highly reactive gas and a major component of smog. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set a National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone of 0.12 parts per million [ppm] that should not be exceeded for more than one hour, once per year. This standard is based largely on scientific data documenting the effects of short-term exposure on lung function in humans. The standard is currently being reevaluated by the EPA. Because ozone can damage cells, prolonged or repeated exposures may be a risk factor for lung cancer. To assess this issue, the National Toxicology Program (NTP) conducted an animal bioassay to evaluate ozones carcinogenicity in rodents. Another public health concern is that prolonged exposure to ozone may damage the cells that line the airways, leading to functional changes in the components of the respiratory tract.. The nose is the first line of defense against inhaled pathogens, dusts, and irritant gases; thus, changes ...
We examine the variation of stratospheric ozone over northern Finland using ozonesonde observations from 1845 stratospheric balloon flights launched between 1989 and 2015 from near Sodankylä. The annual variation of the ozone partial pressure is examined and seasonal variations are explored and quantified. Direct links between the measured ozone partial pressure and common solar-wind parameters are also examined. A superposed-epoch analysis of the observations based on 191 solar proton events (SPEs) reveals a clear drop in the ozone partial pressure that commences following SPE-arrival at Earth. This analysis shows a reduction in stratospheric ozone in the winter/early-spring months (when the polar vortex is active over northern Finland), in contrast to summer/early-autumn months where no decrease is detected. By subtracting the natural seasonal variations in ozone partial pressure the SPE-driven reduction in ozone between 16 km and 24 km altitude is quantified. Analysis indicates that the ...
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented the 1-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone in 1990. Under this standard, the ozone threshold value was 125 parts per billion (ppb), measured as one-hour average concentration. An area met this ozone NAAQS if there were no more than three exceedances at any one monitor in the region in a three-year period.. Four counties in the North Central Texas (NCT) region were designated as nonattainment for the 1-hour ozone NAAQS in 1991. Those counties were Collin, Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant. On June 15, 2005, the 1-hour ozone NAAQS was revoked and replaced by the 8-hour ozone NAAQS. (see 1997 Ozone NAAQS).. On October 31, 2006, the region demonstrated attainment of the 1-hour ozone NAAQS , although it continues to be monitored due to EPAs anti-backsliding requirements. On October 16, 2008, the EPA issued a determination of attainment for the four one-hour nonattainment counties in NCT. ...
The phytotoxicity of ozone to plants is conditioned by a number of environmental factors, including the availability of soil water. These experiments were conducted to determine the interactive effects of plant water stress and ozone on the productivity(biomass) and physiology (photosynthesis, stomatal conductance) of soybean (Glycine max[L.] merr. cv Davis) plants under controlled laboratory conditions. Two similar experiments were designed to examine plant response to two possible ozone - water stress interactions. The first experiment examined the influence of water stress in preconditioning plants to ozone exposure. Plants were maintained in a greenhouse under water-stressed (via soil drying) or non-stressed conditions for two weeks, followed by 8 hour daily exposures to 0, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.5 ppm ozone in controlled gas exchange chambers. Results indicated no consistent patterns in plant physiological response to ozone over two weeks of ozone exposures. In terms of foliar injury, ...
Environmental ozone can rapidly degrade cyanine 5 (Cy5), a fluorescent dye commonly used in microarray gene expression studies. Cyanine 3 (Cy3) is much less affected by atmospheric ozone. Degradation of the Cy5 signal relative to the Cy3 signal in 2-color microarrays will adversely reduce the Cy5/Cy3 ratio resulting in unreliable microarray data. Ozone in central Arkansas typically ranges between ~22 ppb to ~46 ppb and can be as high as 60-100 ppb depending upon season, meteorological conditions, and time of day. These levels of ozone are common in many areas of the country during the summer. A carbon filter was installed in the laboratory air handling system to reduce ozone levels in the microarray laboratory. In addition, the airflow was balanced to prevent non-filtered air from entering the laboratory. These modifications reduced the ozone within the microarray laboratory to ~2-4 ppb. Data presented here document reductions in Cy5 signal on both in-house produced microarrays and commercial
The photochemical mechanisms that give rise to the ozone layer were discovered by the British physicist Sidney Chapman in 1930. Ozone in the Earths stratosphere is created by ultraviolet light striking oxygen molecules containing two oxygen atoms (O2), splitting them into individual oxygen atoms (atomic oxygen); the atomic oxygen then combines with unbroken O2 to create ozone, O3. The ozone molecule is also unstable (although, in the stratosphere, long-lived) and when ultraviolet light hits ozone it splits into a molecule of O2 and an atom of atomic oxygen, a continuing process called the ozone-oxygen cycle, thus creating an ozone layer in the stratosphere, the region from about 10 to 50 kilometres (33,000 to 160,000 ft) above Earths surface. About 90% of the ozone in our atmosphere is contained in the stratosphere. Ozone concentrations are greatest between about 20 and 40 kilometres (12 and 25 mi), where they range from about 2 to 8 parts per million. If all of the ozone were compressed to ...
