Science tries to duplicate and improve what Mother Nature performs. Ozone is no exception. Last month we looked at the UV Light (photo chemical) process of creating ozone. This month we’ll examine the carona discharge process.
With the crack of lightening and the roar of thunder, Mother Nature goes about her job of cleaning up our environment. Step outside after a thunderstorm and smell the sharp, clean crispness in the air. This is carona discharge of an enormous degree in a natural setting. A walk in the Sun, protected by the ozone layer in our atmosphere using some of the suns light waves (UV) to protect us from other more harmful sun rays is another natural way mother nature works with ozone to benefit all living species on Earth.
