High Altitude Oxygen Pods Experiment


Published on

Using high altitude oxygen pods with finely ground alkaline dust, and unreactive particles for water to condense on, perhaps it is possible to precipitate halide salts from the ozone layer, and replenish oxygen deficits with compressed oxygen, released in precision amounts. This presentation introduces the possibility as a research project for an institution or organisation.

High Altitude Oxygen Pods Experiment

  1. 1. High-altitude Oxygen Pods Experiment Ozone Layer Restoration<br />By Chris Morton<br />Professional Inventor<br />13 May 2011 rev 1<br />(2nd edition, first presented April 2000)<br />All contents herein is intellectual property of Chris Morton – MakeNET<br />
  2. 2. Primer 1- Ozone Chemistry<br />3O2 = 2O3 with action of UV light<br />Please go to http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a000800/a000824/a000824.mp4 courtesy of NASA<br />
  3. 3. Primer 2 – Ozone Depleting Gasses<br />CFC’s are also effected by UV light and are ionised.<br />CFC = CR4+ + 2F- + 2Cl-<br />Please go to http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a000800/a000826/a000826.mp4 courtesy of NASA <br />
  4. 4. Primer 3 – Action of ODG in Ozone<br />2O3 +2Cl- = 2OCl- + 2O2<br />2O3 + 2F- = 2OF- + 2O2<br />2O3 + 2NO = 2NO2 + 2O2<br />Please go to http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a000800/a000825/a000825.mp4 courtesy of NASA<br />
  5. 5. Action of Sodium Hydroxide on CFC Radicalsin the HOPE project<br />Hydroxide and Halide Radical<br />2OH + 2Cl- = 2HCL + O2<br />Organic Radical<br />2O2-+ CR4+ = CRO2 <br />Hydrohalide Acid and Sodium Radical<br /> 2HCL + 2Na+ = 2NaCL + H2<br />Hydrogen and Oxygen<br /> 2H2+ O2+ = 2H2O<br />Sodium Salts and Water<br />NaCl + H2O Solution condenses on inert substrate<br />Excess Oxygen<br />Pods Release excess oxygen to replenish O2 as needed <br />
  6. 6. Ocean Abundance of Salts<br />NaCl approximately 2%<br />NaBrapproximately 0.0067%<br />NaF approximately 0.00013%<br />NaIapproximately 6.0×10-6%<br />NaOH + HHa = NaHa + H2O<br /> Where Ha represents a halide ion<br />
  7. 7. Ask yourself...<br />Could application of Sodium Hydroxide help balance the ozonosphere, by removing halide ions?<br />Would the Salts formed pose a significant toxic threat?<br />Is this threat less than the absence of the ozone layer?<br />Can a technological application be devised using NaOH to restore the ozone layer?<br />
  8. 8. A proposal on how to fix the ozone layer HOPE Project<br />Hypothesis<br />The HOPE Project aims to restore the ozone layer by means of using high-altitude oxygen and alkaline dust stream, released in appropriate amounts to correct the chemistry of the ozonosphere, thereby causing a restorative effect on the ozone layer. <br />Using existing solar balloon technology, elevate compressed oxygen and sodium hydroxide – fine dust.<br />Inert particulate matter as a condensing substrate.<br />Release in accordance to the altitude, in increments.<br />
  9. 9. HOPE PROJECT CONT<br />Possible Outcome<br />Sodium Hydroxide reacts with F, Cl, Br, I, N radicals causing sodium salts of those species.<br />Hydroxide reacts with oxygen, forming water.<br />The result solution will precipitate as snow and rain, into the sea and onto the landmasses of the polar regions of earth.<br />The excess oxygen will restore the natural balance of the gasses in the ozonosphere<br />
  10. 10. HOPE PROJECT CONT.1<br />Parameters<br />The correct balance of the ratio of oxygen, sodium hydroxide and inert particulate matter in accordance with altitude is paramount to a successful operation.<br />Simulation<br />Necessary to minimise risk, extremely important.<br />This can be done with the appropriate Super Computing and hired expertise.<br />Risk<br />An unsuccessful execution may cause unexpected results, that may or may not cause other consequences.<br />Partners Wanted<br />Private Individuals, Academic Institutions , Climate Authorities and Organizations, Metrological Organisations, Aerospace and Space, Investors, Corporations, Governmental, Public<br />Capital Required<br />M Rated Priority Project<br />
  11. 11. Simulation of Proposed Mechanism<br />Critically important<br />Incorrect execution of HOPEX (execution phase 2) might have effects that we cannot predict, which may pose a global climatic variation<br />Requirements include: Meteorological Lab, small scale contained simulation environments, Super Computer Assisted Climatic Modelling Software, Experts in all applicable fields<br />The research into HOPE should be conducted immediately<br />
  12. 12. Other Potential Benefits<br />Precipitation in polar regions (typically receive low precipitation) may help reduce the effect of the global warming melting polar ice reserves.<br />Decreased melting of polar ice may mean less methane gas stored in ice reserves entering the atmosphere<br />May help (or may not) restore certain habitats of seals, penguins, polar bears etc<br />
