Cambridge filmed inverted rainbow

English astronomer from Cambridge managed to videotape an amazing and very rare natural phenomenon known as an inverted rainbow. As the British television channel Sky News, this phenomenon has never been seen in the area.Unusual photograph was taken by Dr. Jacqueline Mitton (Jaqueline Mitton). Scientists call the inverted rainbow effect zenith arc (circumzenithal ark). It is curious that it does not need either of rain or clouds necessary for the appearance of an ordinary rainbow - an arc equal in length to a quarter circle, appears on a clear blue sky in the presence of ice crystals.Inverted Read more [...]

Environmentalists have made the first census of microbes in a thundercloud

"When we started this research, we are just hoping to describe the types of bacteria that are found in a previously unexplored habitat - thunderstorm clouds. However, we have found traces of an active ecosystem in the atmosphere," - said the head of a group of scientists from the University of Ulrich Carlson of Aarhus (Denmark) .Europe Ecologie microbes found inside a thundercloud and held their first "census", which allowed scientists to declare clouds most extreme zone the presence of life on Earth, according to an article published in the journal PLoS One. "When we started Read more [...]

Permafrost saturate the Earth's atmosphere with carbon

University of Michigan scientists have found that the carbon in the permafrost in the Arctic is extremely sensitive to sunlight. When sunlight on the surface of the frozen ground last very quickly begin to emit the gas carbon dioxide (CO?), Which, in turn, actively contributes to global warming.In the study of the Arctic regions of Alaska, in which there is permafrost melting, seriously affecting the topography of the ice cover, it was observed that sunlight stimulates the bacteria to the active processing of carbon contained in the soil. Being processed up to 40% of the total carbon storage Read more [...]

Found another reason ozone depletion

It turns out that Ozone kills himself: Its reaction with iodine in the sea surface leads to the formation iodnovatistoy acid, which is then converted to nitric iodine that destroys ozone.Researchers from the Universities of Leeds and York (UK) found that most of the observed over the ocean, iodine oxide (ozone-depleting substances) comes from a source that previously overlooked.Scientists came to the conclusion that the latter may be emissions iodnovatistoy acid (HOI) - gas, which, as previously thought, the ocean does not stand out - along with molecular iodine (I2).Beach near Fort Lauderdale Read more [...]

China: Impotence causes more choking, the fog

I started writing this article with a splitting head pain. Around the thick fog in the surrounding dark pant, chest if squeezed under the weight. Disgust, suffocation, anxiety. Do not decide to open the window because of the fear that the air containing toxic particles above the norm, poses a mortal threat. And the fear that, without opening a window, you're likely to die from asphyxiation with carbon dioxide. I'm young and do sports, but even that does not help, this time, air pollution has reached an extremely serious level. According to the BBC, BBC, 12 January pollution index in Read more [...]

About living clouds

In heaven, you can find different forms of life from air passengers to microorganisms. Unlike the first last not just wait a touchdown, but actively affect the chemical processes in the cloud water droplets.Microorganisms often commit a walk in the clouds. Some people are just waiting for the return to a more traditional solid earth, and others actively engaged with the world, for all its strangeness. This is no small feat, given the terrible cold, intense UV radiation, acid, caustic water.Thus, perhaps, the microbes have an impact on how clouds are formed and behave.Photo theaucitron.As Read more [...]

Scientists have identified the gas that causes ozone depletion

Scientists from the University of York and Leeds made a discovery about the cause of ozone depletion over the oceans. It was found that most of the ozone-destroying iodine oxide comes from previously unexplored marine source. Scientists have found that this source can be explained by the gaseous emissions gipoiodnoy acid (HOI) and molecular iodine (I2). Beginning in the 1970s, when it was opened methyl iodide (CH3I) as a substance, ubiquitous in the ocean, the presence of iodine in the atmosphere can be explained mainly emissions of organic components of phytoplankton - microscopic marine plants.

Gravity waves over the Pacific Ocean

Dense clouds covered almost the entire area, except for the Galapagos Islands, which are seen in the north-eastern corner of the image. In the center of the photo stands out unusual "ripple" in the form of alternating parallel cloud lines and the open sky. So in the cloud cover show themselves gravitational waves. Outwardly, it looks almost like a fingerprint. Under the influence of gravitational waves air moves up and down, forming ridges and troughs. At the top of the ridge form clouds, and in the valley, they are washed away. Satellite "Terra" watched the landscape Read more [...]
