A new study reveals that air pollution emitted from countries near the equator has a bigger impact on the formation of global ozone.
The Arctic is rapidly changing. Scientists found that sea salt could be contributing to local air pollutants in the Arctic.
Scientists to determine the cause and potential implication of the recent change in the quasi-biennial oscillation.
The infamous “hole in the ozone layer” may be on its way to recovery. Climate scientists have detected “the first fingerprints of healing” in the depleted ozone region over Antarctica.
The Bakken Formation, emitting about 250,000 tons of ethane every year, was revealed to be the top cause of the rise in global ethane levels.
Earth's ozone is in good shape, according to scientists, thanks to the Montreal Protocol, which has helped us avoid severe ozone depletion.
We all remember the terrible earthquake and tsunami that left the Pacific coast of Tōhoku in ruins. Nearly 16,000 people tragically died that day, with an additional 2,500 people never found. Now new research has revealed that people and infrastructure weren't the only things to be harmed that day. Because such a stunning number of buildings were destroyed during the disaster, experts now believe that tons of harmful gases were released into the atmosphere, tearing a worrying hole in the ozone layer above Japan.
As if we didn't have enough to worry about with a depleting ozone and buildup of greenhouse gases, now a recent study shows that there is a new ozone-eating gas on the rise.
There's a big hole in our ozone right over the Antarctic right now, and it's slightly bigger than last year. However, according to NASA data, this hole is still significantly smaller than it was a decade ago and is likely going to keep shrinking.
The Sun, new research shows, impacts the polar ozone as well and potentially leads to changes in regional, not global, climate.
Finally, the world can rejoice over some good news about the environment. The Earth's protective ozone layer, which shields us from harmful ultraviolet rays, is showing signs of recovery, according to a new United Nations (UN) report released Wednesday.
Researchers claim they have discovered a surprising amount of harmful ozone in the supposedly "fresh" air of the Colorado mountains, showing just how far urban pollutants can travel.
A compound that was banned worldwide decades ago is still present in the Earth's atmosphere and depleting our ozone, according to new NASA research.
Scientists are taking to the skies to measure air pollution along Colorado's northern Front Range as a way to help identify the sources and levels of harmful ozone, researchers said Tuesday.
A team of US and German researchers has measured the highest level of ultraviolet radiation ever recorded on Earth's surface - in the Bolivian Andes - and their study indicates that depleting ozone may be what caused such harmful radiation levels.
