In a crowded hall of the Polytechnic lacked only ozonator, as if in an aquarium, which was teeming with exotic fish. For the highest windows, for some reason or tightly closed, bright June sun was shining. From the corridor drawn freshest alkyd paint and something else than singed. And in unventilated room was stuffy, which does not meet the solemn event, what the poster reads bright entrance.
Listeners were divided into two camps reverse, but without some of the flank positions all turned stupid confusion of tongues and the usual mess. Idiocy and subservience overlap with Despise irony and frank Read more [...]
Paradoxical increase in ice off the coast of Antarctica in the global warming associated with the so-called ozone anomaly in the South Pole. According to the representative of the Arctic Research Institute Alexander Klepikova, reduction of ozone leads to a cooling of the upper atmosphere, and the strengthening winds, protecting Antarctica from warm air, reports RIA "Novosti".
"Over the 30 years of observations that we have satellite data, we increase the ice cover in the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica, more than 4%," - said the scientist.
At the same time, the amount of drift ice at the Read more [...]

The ozone hole over the last ten years has not increased due to coordinated international efforts to protect the ozone layer that protects the Earth from ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.
This is stated in the study prepared by the world meteorological organization (WMO) and the UN environment programme (UNEP) with the participation of about 300 scientists.
As emphasized in the report, the concentration of ozone on a global scale, as over the Arctic and Antarctica, has not changed for the worse.
This is due to the rejection of the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are widely used Read more [...]
American scientists have come to the conclusion that the fall of an asteroid medium in size and in the ocean can lead to the depletion of the ozone layer and the corresponding increased levels of ultraviolet radiation reaching the surface of our planet.
Dr. Elisabeth Pierazzo (Elisabetta Pierazzo) from the Institute of planetwide in Tucson conducted a series of experiments using computer simulation and found that in the case of asteroid sizes from 500 meters to 1 kilometer in the Pacific ocean to the atmosphere will be thrown out so much steam and sea salt, it can affect the ozone layer.

The ozone layer over Russia will be restored to approximately 2040-mu, but over the tropics the situation is much worse
The ozone layer will recover by 2035. If faithful to the calculations of scientists, by that time, the ozone concentration will rise to the level of 1980.
The article, in which a group of scientists from different countries, from Britain to Japan, analyzes the process of recovery of the ozone layer, submitted for publication in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.
Researchers, based on the data on the dynamics of the atmosphere, has constructed a mathematical model Read more [...]
on October 21. The Antarctic ozone hole, which begins to grow every spring, reached its annual peak on 12 September. Its area was 26 million km? ninth indicator for 26 years of observations. The minimum concentration of ozone over the South pole was registered 9 October. Apparently, the average value of the current year will be the tenth place from the end is an encouraging result.
Paul Newman from Space flight center NASA to them. Goddard explains that this year's ozone hole was larger than the average, due to the colder stratosphere. In the rest of the sizes of the holes are in the range predicted Read more [...]
The ozone hole over the South pole can affect rainfall in the tropics. The thinning of the ozone layer causes air currents of the southern hemisphere to move to the South, resulting in the East of Australia and South-Western Indian ocean more rain.

\"People thought that the ozone hole located so high in the atmosphere over Antarctica will not be able to affect the climate at lower latitudes, \" said lead author Sarah Kahn, fellow of the engineering school Columbia University in new York. Actually, the Domino effect Read more [...]

Back in the labor collectives after the may day weekend, the Belarusians are vying with each other, show each other a strange burns. Moreover, the burn was very very dark on the nature of people.
The readers of the portal interfax.by asked to find out what is behind this attack.And I said...
People gossip that burns on the skin is a sign of exposure to intense radiation (echoes of Chernobyl, and maybe even Fukushima). Scientists refute this information.

12/11/2012 Paradoxical situation in which the global warming of the ice off the coast of Antarctica is growing, due to the influence of the ozone hole at the South Pole, said A.Klepikov from the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute at the "Marine research in the polar regions of the earth in the International Polar Year." "In 30 years of observing what we have on the satellite data, we increase the ice cover in the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica, more than 4%," - said the scientist. At the same time, the number of floating ice at the North Pole has been steadily declining, Read more [...]
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 [...]
According to local residents, after the explosion of a certain object (presumably a meteorite) over Chelyabinsk, increased output power of the sun resulting in a glow from the river and began to evaporate Miass. Astrophysics confirm fears residents - the explosion of the region formed the ozone hole. Residents complain that the sun is shining and there is a noticeably brighter sunlight coming from the heat. Presumably a meteorite explosion occurred today vybivshy glass in buildings within a radius of more than 20 kilometers, the ozone hole has formed ... According to official data, the background Read more [...]
The Arctic ozone hole is located closer to populated areas than the Antarctic
The loss of the ozone layer over the Arctic basin was this year so significant that for the first time in the history of observations, we can talk about the emergence of «the ozone hole» similar to the Antarctic.
At altitudes above 18-20 kilometers ozone loss amounted to about 80%, according to the scientific journal Nature.
The authors referred to as the probable cause of this phenomenon is unusually long preservation of relatively low temperatures in the stratosphere at these latitudes.
Such conditions Read more [...]
The world meteorological organization has recorded a record: in the Arctic in February-March, nearly 40 percent decreased the ozone layer. What are the consequences of the depletion of the ozone layer and whether you want to save the planet from him? About it in the air «Am Russia» told the head of the Department of research of the composition of the atmosphere Institute of atmospheric physics, Nicholas Elansky.
Until the destruction of the ozone layer there's nothing catastrophic, the scientist believes. The ozone hole, he said, has always existed, but had a very small area and Read more [...]

Data satellite NASA Aura confirm that the thickness of the ozone layer in the atmosphere over the Arctic in March dropped to almost minimum in the history of observations of values, according to the NASA Earth Observatory.
As previously reported RIA Novosti expert at the German Institute for polar and marine research Alfred Wegener (AWI) Markus Rex (Markus Rex), abnormally low temperatures in the stratosphere at an altitude of the ozone layer, which protects the Earth from UV rays caused a sharp decrease of its thickness over the Arctic region. For several Read more [...]
Morta 2011.22:07. -By size it is comparable to the Antarctic. And continues to grow. Dangerous changes noted by experts from the German Institute for polar and marine research. According to their observations, the ozone over the Arctic for the last few weeks has halved.
The decay goes in all directions: concentration decreases by 2% per day), the thickness of the layer, now it is equal to 2.8 mm. But every day is a protective cover that protects the earth population from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, becoming thinner (2-3% per day). To the former anti record 1979 remained some Read more [...]
