Ocean ozone layer

Scientists from the University of York and Leeds have made an important discovery, identifying the cause of the destruction of the ozone layer over the oceans. The researchers found that the reaction of ozone with iodide on the surface of the ocean can produce about 75% of the observed level of iodine oxide in the tropical Atlantic. While iodine with bromine in the atmosphere to destroy a huge amount of ozone in the lower atmosphere over the tropical regions of the Atlantic Ocean - 50% more than predicted by the most advanced climate models climate. In laboratory experiments, scientists have Read more [...]

Is there life in the stratosphere?

And if so, what kind? How to cope with the low temperatures and cosmic radiation? Who lives on the edge of space? That is - who else, except for pilots and divers rare in the sky? To this question and prepared to answer one of the employees of NASA. If we try to imagine the conditions suitable for life, the stratosphere comes to mind is not right: high, dry, cold. This atmospheric layer lies over the site where the weather is formed, that is, at 10? 50 km above the Earth. The average temperature of the lower part is? 56? C, a jet stream blowing at a speed of 160 km / h Atmospheric density Read more [...]

World on the verge of a tipping point, or again on the permafrost

The permafrost is melting faster than expected, and where it will lead, no one knows, because the carbon stored there can come in the form of carbon dioxide, and may in the form of methane - a potent greenhouse gas.Permafrost, which covers almost a quarter of the Northern Hemisphere and stores huge amounts of carbon, can melt faster than we think. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) released a report which stated that the forecast by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on the growth temperature to 2014 may not be true, because the IPCC did not take into account the possible Read more [...]

Boundary of the atmosphere

Not only was the man to fly in space, now he definitely need to know where to draw the line between the most space and Earth's atmosphere. A certain part of the scientific community believes that the boundary is at an altitude of 100 kilometers. After all, that distance may be raised winged vehicles. NASA believes that space begins after 122 kilometers. The fact that it is at that point the spacecraft NASA when they return to the ground, turn off the inboard motors and move to aerodynamic flight control, writes sunhome.ru But scientists from Canada, such data was not satisfied. The research Read more [...]

Mountain sickness

The intensity of altitude sickness, depending on the altitude. The most effective way to prevent altitude sickness is a preliminary acclimatization, the consumption of vitamins and carbohydrates. Important condition - complete rejection of alcohol and nicotine. First aid: reduce muscle strain, in case of fainting - artificial respiration, rest. Prevention: the appearance of the first signs of altitude sickness to halt until the body can not adapt to the new conditions. In very severe cases, it is recommended to go down, where mountain sickness itself will take place. Preventive agents Read more [...]

Height

The high altitude of physical activity can be a major challenge for your body. Even well trained people can suffer altitude sickness. The risk groups include those who, without prior acclimatization makes too rapid ascent to an altitude of 2500 meters and climbing in the mountains by car or cable car. Recent studies have shown that 47% of climbers, climbing to the base camp of Chomolungma (Everest) at an altitude of between 5500 and 6100 meters, suffer from altitude disease. Height can cause complications of diseases such as asthma, hypertension, cardiovascular disease.If you are going to rise Read more [...]

Pulmonary edema

This disease is associated with an excessive accumulation of fluid in the lungs and is life threatening. Conditions for it seldom reaches below 2500 meters. Young men suffer from it more often than other groups. Symptoms usually occur within one to four days after ascent to high altitude. To the usual symptoms of altitude disease added sense of shortness of breath and weakness. A person may develop a dry harsh cough, which may progress to a cough with phlegm. Sputum may be foaming, painted in pink. If you listen to the chest through a stethoscope, you can hear Bulka Nye fluid in the lungs.Pulse Read more [...]

Acclimatization

To prevent altitude sickness, before going to the mountains or climbing should acclimate. Get up slowly. With the rapid climb body does not uspevaetprisposobitsya to the high altitudes. If you have to climb above 3,000 meters (eg in Nepal), stay below this altitude for odnogodvuh days before the ascent. For every subsequent 600 meters spend at least one night at this altitude. Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. (Control of the urine will show you drink enough fluids. If it has an intense yellow color, it is necessary to increase fluid intake.) Do not eat foods rich in protein. Read more [...]

Altitude sickness

Altitude sickness (synonymous with mountain sickness) - syndrome resulting from a lack of oxygen partial pressure in the breathing air at rises to great heights. As a result of oxygen deficiency disturbed function of the nervous, respiratory and cardiovascular systems. There are changes in the digestive organs, endocrine glands, muscles. Develop symptoms of hypoxia. Altitude disease  divided into proper altitude disease (aviators), and mountain disease, the development of which play a role and such additional factors as the physical fatigue, cooling, ionized air and ultraviolet radiation.

Acclimatization man in the mountains

The climate is different from the highlands climate Plains low atmospheric pressure, the more intense solar radiation, UV-rich, significant ionization, purity and low temperature (see Climate). The most important factor in the body at high altitudes, is to reduce the concentration of O2 air and barometric pressure (approximately 35 mm Hg. Art. 400-500 per head), creating hypoxemia and tissue hypoxia. Effects on the body changes in barometric pressure consists mainly of two components: a) the effects of reduced oxygen saturation of arterial blood, and b) the effect of changes in barometric pressure Read more [...]
