A new study looks into how air movement in the atmospheric boundary layer affects ozone removal by deciduous forests, which are a significant ozone sink.
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.
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.
New high-altitude aircraft observations identify unexpected high levels of halogen-containing species entering the stratosphere above the summertime Asian monsoon.
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.
Scientists have shown that mineral carbonation can permanently capture and store carbon quickly enough and safely enough to rise to the challenge of climate change.
The method offers potential in helping reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere but faces technological and economic hurdles.
Although methane emission estimates from underground coal production appear to be accurate, the calculated emissions from natural gas production are underreported.
In the latest episode of its special series, AGU’s Third Pod from the Sun features scientists whose work found the source of a hole in the sky.
Still, more than half of the seeds required for cloud droplets to form in both the present-day and preindustrial atmospheres are made by trace gases that condense to form minute aerosol particles.
