Radiocarbon in roadside plants revealed a decline in auto emissions during COVID lockdown and a 2021 rebound. Could this improve emission estimates in countries without CO2 monitoring infrastructure?
AGU journals host a new living special collection on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the geosciences and invite additional contributions to grow this collection.
How aerosol scientists spread the word on the airborne transmission of COVID-19–and what it means for cleaning our indoor air.
Decrease in aircraft soot emission, as shown by COVID-19 lockdown, leads to a significant increase in ice crystal number in cirrus clouds, and results in a small global positive radiative effect.
Deep-ocean-dwelling microbes may hold keys to improved medical diagnostics and new drugs for fighting diseases. But we must search Earth’s most extreme habitats to find them.
An international team overcame many challenges, including from the COVID-19 pandemic, to deploy a dense seismic network along an understudied fault system that poses hazards to millions in Indonesia.
A decrease in emissions of ozone precursor gases during the COVID-19 economic downturn likely explains the unusual reduction in ozone concentrations observed during the spring and summer of 2020.
Although causality has yet to be established, an Italian case study found that an increase in annual average exposure to PM2.5 was associated with a jump in the rate of COVID-19.
As people stayed home during the COVID-19 lockdowns, air quality improved. But the improvement was accompanied by an unusual meteorological side effect: a decrease in lightning.
Una nueva base de datos revela ciudades más opacas, campos de cultivos vacíos y puertos vacíos.
