Hydrogen in the air

The proportion of hydrogen in the air varies considerably, although it is always minute. The hydrogen content, however, is believed to increase with the altitude. In the spectrum of the aurora the intensity of the nitrogen lines diminishes and that of the hydrogen lines increases with increasing height. The hydrogen originates from volcanic emanations as well as from bacterial activity.
