Trade Winds, White Heat

The arrows indicate the direction of air movement. Cloudy nights are often warmer than clear nights. Which explains why cloudy nights tend to be warmer than clear nights? The map shows winds and surface currents in the Northern Hemisphere. What is the relationship between the white and black arrows on the map? The wind in a certain area is blowing from east to west.

Question 1. It causes the air to move as wind. It causes the winds to shift north and south. It causes wind to blow from any direction. It causes an apparent change in wind direction.

What causes convection currents to form in the oceans? Coriolis effect. And in those dust samples the EPA did collect and analyze in the first week after the attacks, 25 percent showed asbestos levels above the 1 percent threshold that indicates "significant risk," according to the EPA.

Plus, inside the two towers were heavy metals, such as lead that helps make electric cables flexible and poisons the human brainas well as polychlorinated biphenyls White Heat used in electrical transformers that are toxic on their own and become even more toxic when burned at high heat, and glass fibers that lodge in the lungs.

The levels of dioxin measured in the air near the smoldering pile "were the highest ambient measurements of dioxin ever recorded anywhere in the world," levels at least times higher than those found downwind of a garbage incinerator, according to an analysis published by EPA scientists [pdf] in Ten years later, no one knows what was in the cloud of gases released by the combustion of all that jet fuel and building material but science has revealed what was in the dust—cement, steel, gypsum from drywall, building materials, cellulose from paper, synthetic molecules from rugs, glass fibers and human hair from the long decades of the two towers' use, among other items.

And knowing what was in the dust suggests what may have caused Trade Winds ailment dubbed " World Trade Center cough " by the New England Journal of Medicine Trade Winds, which doctors at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York estimate afflicted nearly half of those who worked at the site.

The primary cause of that ubiquitous cough was the simple fact that the dust was highly basic, an enormous blast of alkalinity from the drywall and cement that fell onto Lower Manhattan.

Rescue workers and those who survived the Twin Towers' collapse were bathed in the dust, which contained particles of sizes ranging from the millimeter scale down to nanometers in width, the right size to embed deep in the lungs if inhaled. Both gypsum and calcite, found in drywall and cement, irritate mucus membranes, like those in the eyes, nose and throat. A cleansing rain on September 14 did reduce the basic nature of the dust from a pH of roughly 11 to 9 but did nothing to transform the materials in the cloud of dust.

Equally important, adequate protection—specifically respirators—were often not used or used incorrectly by first responders and others at the scene, according to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, even though by September 22, the EPA had supplied more than 22, air purifying respirators to workers at the site.

Plus, workers at the site received conflicting messages—on the one hand, air pollution levels were announced to be safe while, on the other, the EPA urged workers to wear respirators. Ultimately, the EPA determined that the air around Ground Zero was harmless, despite the agency's findings concerning levels of asbestos and dioxin, at least to civilians living and working in the vicinity, if not the rescue workers.

Ground Zero smoldered until December 19, releasing fumes that researchers collected in air samples. The question is: did all those toxicants—whether dust particles or air pollution—harm human health? Of course, attributing anything like cancer to being near the World Trade Center on that day or working on the pile in the months thereafter is White Heat extremely difficult by the simple fact that roughly one in four Americans and New Yorkers will develop cancer in some form over the course of their lives.

Teasing any extra cancers out of that number will be scientifically difficult, if not impossible. Other studies found that firefighters and other rescue workers had elevated levels of chemical toxicants in their blood and urine; for example, firefighters tested at the end of September had elevated levels of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that result from jet fuel burning and are human carcinogens.

In Hawaii, reefs are also a major part of the economy: Tourism thrives largely because of coral reefs that help create and protect iconic white sand beaches, offer snorkeling and diving spots, and help form waves that draw surfers from around the world. Ocean temperatures are not uniformly warm across the state, Gove noted. Local wind patterns, currents and even features on land can create hot spots in the water. And many of those corals are still recovering from the bleaching event, meaning they are more susceptible to thermal stress.

Beyond this event, oceanic temperatures will continue to rise in the coming years, Gove said. For coral, hot water means stress, and prolonged stress kills these creatures and can leave reefs in shambles. Bleaching occurs when stressed corals release algae that provide them with vital nutrients.

Asner told The Associated Press that sensors showed the bay was about 3.
