The Montreal Protocol halted the destruction of the ozone layer. In the process, it saved one of Earth’s most important carbon sinks.
Nuevos datos de exploración con aeronaves muestran que aunque la química atmosférica sobre regiones oceánicas remotas es una fuente considerable de producción de metanol, la emisión neta de metanol del océano es menor.
Excess of a single nutrient, such as nitrogen, may boost plant productivity, but the imbalance leads to less efficient water use as plants scramble for the nutrients they lack.
During severe Amazonia droughts when oceanic supply of moisture failed, the magnitude of rainfall reduction over Rondonia was moderated by enhanced moisture supply from upwind forests.
New aircraft survey data show that although atmospheric chemistry above remote ocean regions is a considerable source of methanol production, the ocean’s net methanol emission is minor.
Papers are invited for a new cross-journal special collection on insights in scaling land-atmosphere interactions from field experiments, data analyses, and modeling.
Tropospheric ozone is removed at Earth’s surface through uptake by plant stomata and other nonstomatal deposition pathways, with impacts on air pollution, ecosystem health, and climate.
Smoke from burning landscapes is increasingly filling the air. Eos has dedicated its February 2020 issue to the increasingly important study of wildfire emissions.
Satellite data combined with wind models bring scientists one step closer to being able to monitor air pollution from space.
Lightning, fire vortices, and black hail are some of the frightening features of fire-fueled storms, which may become more common in the future.
