Pollution levels of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
Taking as a scientific and research reference the information provided by the Web Services GeoPortal of the National Commission for Space Activities (CONAE) of Argentina, Higanbana Army presents:
What is nitrogen dioxide?
Nitrogen dioxide or nitrogen oxide (NO2), is a chemical compound formed by the elements nitrogen and oxygen, one of the main pollutants among the various nitrogen oxides.
Rampant consumerism, some degradation of social norms, over exploitation human resources, and the environment continue to play against. The Earth, and its components mutate, adapt. There are enough signs to show that humans, and all living beings, we are one more element that makes up this living organism. The coronavirus could be understood as the result of the conduct of a technocratic world, that has generated environmental problems for a long time such as the Greenhouse Effect, Global Climate Warming, Deterioration of the Ozone Layer, to name a few. During strict quarantine in 2020 there was a sharp decrease in contamination levels to world level. The first values were seen in China, the United States and Italy when there The strict isolation began with falls of between 20% and 30% of the emissions of Dioxide of Nitrogen (NO2) in the air.
In urban centers hit hard by the coronavirus, such as Madrid, Milan, Rome, Paris recorded a decrease of between 40% and 60% of this pollutant concentration. In Argentina, through maps created by the Commission's Web Services GeoPortal National Program for Space Activities (CONAE), the averages were analyzed three weeks prior and the three after March 20, 2020. The results were surprising in cities such as Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Rosario, Mendoza and San Miguel de Tucumán. The observations Daily reports from the Sentinel-5p satellite show that Nitrogen Dioxide in the atmosphere of urban centers was significantly reduced after mandatory isolation, up to 5 and 6 times Lower.
