Heavy rain will produce so refreshing soil odor. Ever not you become very melancholy when it rains? Especially rain which falls after the dry season will end. Outside the flood problems that often arise after rain, for some people, rain always carries old memories. I don't know from his spatter, it suddenly comes or from a very distinctive rain aroma.
Are you a lover of rain an aroma? If you feel so like the aroma of rain, you are not the only person. The researchers believe people have inherited the love of the rain fragrance of their ancestors who relied on rain for their survival. But what exactly triggers the aroma of rainwater falling to the ground? There are some aromas related to rain that makes people feel happy. One of them is commonly referred to as Petrichor.
There are several types of rain aromas. The first aroma is known as Petrichor, and the other is called ozone. However, what is necessary to know is that the aroma of rain that we kiss may be different in one place from another place. For example, rain in urban areas will be flavorful like a heated asphalt. Rain in the aroma countryside is like wet grass. Another thing in the ocean area, the rain tends to be salty flavorful like seawater. This is because every drop of rainwater can capture and carry the molecules. In addition, the difference in the aroma of rain also depends on the type of rain and the interpretation of the sense of olfactory each other different people.
Petrichor is a distinctive natural aroma that arises when the rain touches dry soil. The word "Petrichor" was first triggered by two Australian minerals, Isabel Joy Bear and Richard Grenfell Thomas in an article in the Journal Nature in 1964.
Ozone is a scent before the rain falls, which generally smells when there is lightning. Lightning can break the oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the atmosphere so that the molecular fragments are joined and form a nitric oxide which will later join other chemical materials in the atmosphere so that it will form ozone.
In other words, Ozone is a molecule that is formed from the interaction between the process of releasing electricity (in this case is lightning) with oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the atmosphere. The aroma of ozone might be what people say that they can smell the rain will go down.
Sometimes this ozone is often carried away by raindrops and mixed with other aromas (including Petrichor) as the aroma of rain. Because of the number of fans of this rainy aroma, so some perfume producers process and sell rain fragrance perfumes with various brands. I could see various forums that discussed the perfume of the rain.
Research on the mechanisms that occur in nature such as rain events shows that the regularity of God's creation contains an amazing miracle and benefits life. Humans only need to review and examine them deeper. Thank you for reading. I hope that today's writing is useful for you, such as rainwater that goes down provides benefits for all beings.
