Seeing Photosynthesis from Space: NASA Scientists Use Satellites to Measure Plant Health | NASA Seeing Photosynthesis from Space: NASA Scientists Use Satellites to Measure Plant Health | NASA NASA scientists have established a new way to use satellites to measure what's occurring inside plants at a cellular level. Plants grow and thrive through photosynthesis, a process that converts sunlight into energy. During photosynthesis, plants emit what is called fluorescence – light invisible to the naked eye but detectable by satellites orbiting hundreds of miles above Earth. NASA scientists have now established a method to turn this satellite data into global maps of the subtle phenomenon in more detail than ever before.

Loofah Plant Seeds Absorb Organic Pollutants and Heavy Metals from Wastewater Seeds and oils from the plant that produces the loofah sponge could help purify wastewater and prevent the spread of waterborne diseases in the developing world, according to a scientist speaking today at the 17th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference in Bethesda, Md. The low-cost, biodegradable seeds and substances made from oils of these seeds are particularly effective at absorbing heavy metals and other potentially harmful organic compounds from polluted water, he said. Adewale Adewuyi, Ph.D., a lecturer at Redeemer’s University in Mowe, Nigeria, notes that rain water, rivers and streams are the most common direct sources of drinking water in many developing countries. Often, this water is polluted with substances from factories and agricultural runoff, which can harm both people and animals.

'Clean 15' 2013 List Ranks Fruits & Vegetables Least Contaminated By Pesticides The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has released its ninth annual list of fruits and vegetables that are the most and least likely to be contaminated by pesticides. The 2013 Shopper's Guide To Pesticide In Produce breaks down its list into the " Dirty Dozen " -- produce to avoid due to pesticide contamination -- and the "Clean 15." From the Clean 15 list, the EWG found that no single fruit sample tested positive for more than four types of pesticides and seven percent of samples had just one pesticide detected. Fewer than 11 percent of pineapple samples showed detectable pesticides. Likewise, 78 percent of mango, 75 percent of kiwi and 61 percent of cantaloupe had no pesticide residues. Overall, detectable pesticide residues were found on 67 percent of food samples after they had been washed or peeled.
