  • Carbon dioxide levels in atmosphere spike

    The annual growth rate of atmospheric carbon dioxide measured at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii jumped by 3.05 parts per million during 2015, the largest year-to-year increase in 56 years of research, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The development is significant because Mauna Loa Observatory is ...

  • Ex Situ Treatment of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Impacted Groundwater

    Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) are common in Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) used for firefighting. PFASs are widely distributed across the higher trophic levels and are found in air, soil and groundwater at sites across the U.S. (EPA 505-F-14-001, March 2014). The toxicity, mobility and bioaccumulation potential of PFASs pose potential adverse effects for the environment ...
