Much like when kids learn to read, as they learn to write there are a whole lot of things going on simultaneously. The next step in the writing process isn’t actually a step at all; it’s a series of learning experiences, the first of which is learning about sight words. From the very first day of kindergarten your child will be introduced to the concept of sight words, words that he’ll gradually be expected to recognize every time he sees them, which is different from learning to sound them out. Term analysis Still, there will be words your child isn’t…

The first and most obvious effects of acid deposition were observed in freshwater ecosystems. Tens of thousands of lakes and streams in North America and Europe are more acidic than they were a few decades ago as a result of acid SULFUR DIOXIDE AND ACID RAIN 73 C04 08/23/2011 12: 74 deposition. These freshwaters are in sensitive areas with hard bedrock, thin acid soils, and little acid-neutralizing capacity, and their acidification has resulted in losses of fish and other aquatic organisms. The evidence showing that strong mineral acidity has caused ecological changes has come from many sources, including (1) historical…

While the CAA authorizes the EPA to set NAAQS, the states are responsible for establishing procedures to attain and maintain the standards. The states adopt plans known as State Implementation Plans (SIPs) and submit them to the EPA to ensure that they meet statutory requirements. SIPs are based on emission inventories and computer models to determine whether air quality violations will occur. States must develop monitoring plans for air pollution levels; these may be funded by the EPA. If the SIP shows that standards may be exceeded, the state may be required to impose additional controls on existing sources. Proposed…

Observational studies of the influence of O3 on human health are often difficult to interpret because the population is also exposed to other pollutants in the ambient air that could affect the responses observed, or to other environmental challenges that may produce comparable effects, such as environmental tobacco smoke, other pollutants in indoor air, and allergens found in indoor and outdoor air. Grades 1 and 2 schoolchildren in Austria were studied across the summer for three successive years, and an O3 effect was detected on reducing FEV1 or lung growth.37 In the Children’s Health Study from Southern California, a new…

There are two primary U.S. NAAQS (National Ambient Air Quality Standards) for SO2. The short-term (24-hour) standard is set at 0.14 ppm (0.365 mg/m3 ) and is not to be exceeded more than once per year per air pollution control district. The long-term standard specifies an annual arithmetic mean not to exceed 0.03 ppm (0.080 mg/m3 ). These standards do not address very shortterm exposures to SO2. It is well established that even brief exposures to SO2 during exercise, such as 15 or 20 minutes, can cause significant lung function impairment in people with asthma. Find out the latest news…
