Previous research indicated aerosols in ship exhaust could enhance lightning. New research indicates the ships themselves may be to blame as well.
Metals from spacecraft reentry don’t simply vaporize and vanish. Scientists found them in the stratosphere.
An improved representation for black carbon microphysical and optical properties alleviates overestimations of aerosol absorption efficiency in global climate models.
Researchers dug into data to examine the effects of wildfires, pollutants, and meteorological factors on mortality and cardiovascular health in the Iberian country.
A new fog harvester could benefit communities that lack access to clean freshwater.
Dust from Alaska is particularly effective at forming ice crystals because it contains biological components, researchers believe. The finding has implications for cloud physics and our planet’s climate.
Future releases of sulfur dioxide from volcanoes will likely be higher than the reconstructed historical levels currently used for climate predictions.
A new study couples an emission and transport scheme of pollen from vegetation, and explores pollen’s evolution in different atmospheric conditions and its impacts on clouds and precipitation.
During 2013-2019, a distinct seasonality for trends of aerosol concentrations and optical properties was found over Northern China.
To reduce persistent aerosol-climate-forcing uncertainty, new in situ aerosol and cloud measurement programs are needed, plus much better integration of satellite and suborbital measurements with models.
