Eliminating energy-related air pollution in the United States could prevent roughly 50,000 premature deaths and save billions of dollars per year.
If the world stays on fossil fuels, fine particle pollution from wildfire smoke could more than double in the late summer to early fall in the U.S. Pacific Northwest by 2100.
New research shows that the Black Summer bushfires damaged the ozone layer, eliminating a decade’s worth of progress.
On Earth, the water cycle is a dominant climate force. On Mars, it’s the dust.
A new study finds the lofted pollutants came from major European cities, but further study is required to fully understand the plastics’ transport and deposition processes.
Jet streams sprinkle North African dust over the Amazon, providing the rain forest with much needed nutrients. Changing wind patterns and increasing smoke may shift the system.
Extended periods of volcanism known as flood basalt eruptions lead to volcanic winters, which are often followed by an extended period of warming. But it was more than just carbon dioxide that warmed the globe.
An optimal approach for detection and attribution studies using the CMIP6 Detection and Attribution Model Intercomparison Project (DAMIP).
Investigadores descubren cómo el carbono negro evoluciona de partículas hidrofóbicas a sitios de nucleación de nubes, removiendo eventualmente las partículas que absorben calor del cielo.
A team of researchers in Brazil and the United States uncovered the importance of the mechanism of oxidation—a process with the potential to affect climate and precipitation across the tropics.
