After the storm there is more ozone holes

After the storm there is more ozone holes Scientists prove

As the number of storms and their intensity increased due to heating of the Earth, the ozone hole over populated areas of the planet away from the poles can be so much more. It means that people will be affected by a stronger ultraviolet radiation that causes skin cancer — a new marker of global warming.

Mechanism would work as follows. When heated planets cyclones and storms will allocate to the stratosphere to a height of 14 to 35 km more gaseous water, a greenhouse agent. Under appropriate

Seven ways how to bring climate in order

Seven ways how to bring climate in order to save the planet

1.Capacity plankton mass

The idea is to put the water in the ocean as much as possible of the iron ions. They, in turn, will be fertile ground for habitat, reproduction and further increasing the mass of plankton. A plankton are known to actively absorbs carbon dioxide from the water, and after the death falls with it to the bottom, providing an invaluable service to the storage of greenhouse gases. The proposal made by scientists from the University of Liverpool, has successfully tested the technique on

The July drought in the U.S.: a photo report

The July drought in the U.S.: Photo Weather and Climate

1.

Once the water level in Lake Medina fell to a critical level of 16 meters, and the dry dock was down. Farmers face water shortage in the area of San Antonio, Texas. 2.

Another consequence of the drought are fires. A striking example is the fire in High Park to the west of Fort Collins, Colorado. Fell victim to fire 250 houses, 364 km2 of forest. To replace it by a new fire in the canyon Waldo. As a result, two people were killed and

Tropical cyclone brought flooding to the Philippines

Tropical cyclone brought flooding to the Philippines Natural Disasters

The next visit of the tropical cyclone "Ferdi" to the North Philippine Islands did not end solely by record levels of rainfall and flooding. Two people from the province of Laguna and La Yunon dead and six missing in the vicinity of Manila. In general, these sailors from provincial towns and Bolinao Kainta. Among the missing, there is one child of six, which probably washed away in the river Balbalayya.

In the city difficult to move, roads flooded and resemble river channels. As before, all the capital and its

Important water discovery in Nomibii

Important water discovery in Nomibii Facts

In northern Namibia discovered a new underground reservoir of fresh water. Discovery is extremely important for this arid African country because the situation with the supply and quality of water in her perhaps the most lamentable throughout the continent south of the Sahara.

The experts recognized the area borders of Angola and Namibia the safest tank for local residents from all available nearby, despite the fact that he turned out to be 10,000 years old. Namibia by the aquifer is about 70 km long and 40 km wide. It has been estimated

Beijing hit by heavy rains

Beijing hit by heavy rains Weather and Climate

  The strongest in 60 years rainfall caused widespread destruction in the capital of China, which killed at least 37 people, another 50,000 were forced to leave their flooded homes.

Local residents among the debris and damaged cars after flooding caused by torrential rains over the village of Ba Qing far from Beijing.

Around 80,000 passengers spent the night

Singapore has learned to turn human waste into electricity and fertilizer

Singapore has learned to turn human waste into electricity and fertilizer Facts

Scientists from the University of Technology in Nanyange invented a special system of latrines, which is able to convert human waste into electricity at the same time and in the fertilizer. In addition, when using the device and processing reduces the amount of water used to drain almost 90% compared to the current Singapore indices.

In the developed model has two compartments, separating the liquid from the solid contents immediately after using the toilet. When draining the technology used vacuum suction, much like airplanes, which reduces

Dying trees in the southwest worsen erosion and contribute to the reduction of water in the Colorado River

Dying trees in the southwest worsen erosion and contribute to the reduction of water in the Colorado River Facts

According to new research the following two successive events, drought and beetles beetle, over the past 15 years have led to the destruction of 2.5 million acres of pine and juniper odnohvoynoy in the south-western United States. The destruction of ecosystems in the region continues.

According to the researchers, the death odnohvoynoy pine causes excitement due to the fact that these trees maintain the balance of the fragile ecosystem of the region, providing food and shelter for many species

Atlantic coast of the rapidly dives

Atlantic coast of the rapidly dives Scientists prove

Scientists have found that the rate of sea level rise in the U.S. Atlantic coast and Canada is three to four times faster than the global average. For analysis was taken long coastline 960 km from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to the north of Boston, Massachusetts. It turned out that since 1990, there was water up to 2-3,7 mm, while the average figure was 0.6-1.0 mm.

In the subsequent increase in global temperature water on the coast will rise even faster. Its influence on the process have reduced salinity and

Russian neutron device will help discover water on Mars

Developed in Russia device — one of a dozen instruments, which will be equipped with an American rover Curiosity. It is intended to find its water and saturated with mineral high-energy neutrons.

The device, called "Dynamic neutron albedo" (DAN) was created in Lab space gamma spectroscopy of the Space Research Institute (IKI). Leading designer Igor Mitrofanov said that DAN — is the primary means of exploration, if it finds something interesting at a particular point, other devices will help to clarify the situation.
