Researchers at the RMIT University in Australia have created a new method for detecting varying levels of nitrogen dioxide, which is a harmful air pollutant.
In a recent study researchers found that as the atmosphere becomes warmer, it will also become hazier, which ultimately impacts future air quality.
A recent study on air pollution (haze) found that haze particles lead to abrasive damage on industrial alloys.
Curbing short-term pollutants could be huge for the general population and even for climate change. Scientists have found that reducing these pollutants could actually increase life expectancy.
Scientists have taken a closer look at a volcanic eruption that occurred in Iceland and have found that the eruption emitted on average three times as much of a toxic gas as all European industry combined.
Air pollution can cause all sorts of problems for health. Now, though, scientists have studied the risk of acute leukemia in children living close to heavily used roads
Researchers have taken a closer look at what might be happening to us on a molecular level when we breathe smoggy air.
What we put into our bodies--including what we eat and breathe--can ultimately have a long-term impact on our health.
It turns out that there is, in fact, a link between air pollution and the risk of death. Scientists have found that increased air pollution increases a person's risk of dying from heart disease.
China is known for its smoggy, black skies that can cause health hazards to the public. But for a few days before Beijing's military parade, the city experienced perfect, azure skies.
Radioactive contaminants may be blown into our atmosphere in the form of coal ash.
There may be a new way to clean millions of acres of land contaminated by explosives: plants. Biologists believe that they may be able to create a plant that can help "soak up" TNT with enhanced TNT tolerance.
