Washington, D.C. — The dust in Washington, DC, is so bad that it’s a public health emergency.
And the government is warning residents to stay indoors if they want to avoid breathing it.
The dust is made up of microscopic pieces of fine dust that travel at a speed of about 30,000 feet per second (about 60 kilometers per hour).
Those particles, known as dust particles, are mostly made of carbon, a tiny molecule of carbon-14.
And carbon-13, which is present in our air, is the key component in the chemical reactions that cause air to expand.
The carbon-15 is what creates oxygen in our lungs.
In the wake of the GWZ disaster, scientists have been trying to find a way to break the link between carbon and oxygen, which they believe is the cause of the health problems.
The new research published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, was conducted by researchers at the University of Washington in the U.S. and the University, which has more than 10,000 employees.
They found that breathing in carbon-16 or carbon-9 can produce short-term respiratory distress similar to that of someone who is suffocating due to an asthma attack, said senior author David L. Jones, a professor of chemical engineering and director of the UW-led Advanced Nanotechnology Center (ANIC) and director for the UW Health Research Institute.
Carbon-16 is also known to cause cancer, although it is not yet known whether this would be the case for the GWX dust.
However, the dust from GWX was more likely to cause acute lung damage because it was made up mostly of carbon and not oxygen, Jones said.
This is the first time scientists have looked at carbon-10 emissions from the dust, Jones added.
“We’ve been working on this for a long time, and we’re still working on the question of how to remove carbon from the air.
The answer is not necessarily to create a lot of carbon dioxide, but to remove a lot more carbon dioxide than we have in our atmosphere.
The idea is to remove more carbon from air.”
The research involved monitoring dust particles in the air at the GWP and GWB sites, as well as measuring levels of carbon in the environment at both sites.
The research team measured dust particles at the two GWP sites using instruments on board a research aircraft.
The instruments were able to measure levels of the volatile organic compound known as CO, which can be used to measure the amount of carbon particles that were present in the atmosphere.
These measurements were then used to predict how much carbon dioxide would be emitted from the site, based on the amount and concentration of CO in the surrounding air.
For example, when CO levels are high, the particles that are emitted tend to settle to the ground and remain suspended in the dust.
For this reason, the researchers also predicted the CO levels that would be present in an area with low levels of CO.
Because the dust particles were suspended in dust particles made up primarily of carbon molecules, the carbon-18 particles could also be used in this way to predict levels of exposure.
They were able, however, to find the dust at the sites in the vicinity of the two sites that had high levels of pollution.
So, the results of this study were very encouraging, said co-author Michael B. Bales, a postdoctoral research associate at the ANIC.
They showed that carbon-11 is not responsible for the high levels, as it was not present in a concentration of particles at either site.
“It’s the CO-18 that is the major contributor,” Bales said.
“Our research suggests that CO-14, which occurs naturally in the upper atmosphere, could play a role in the release of carbon from GWP.
And that’s not surprising given that CO is an important component of the ozone layer, which blocks out UV radiation that causes damage to the lungs.”
Bales added that he was also excited by the findings.
“I think we can learn a lot from this work because we’re going to be looking at dusts for many, many years to come,” he said.
The findings were published in an article in the American Journal of Environmental Science and Technology.
The article, titled “How to Protect Yourself from Breathing in the Pollutant Dust from the Washington GWB Disaster,” is available online.
