Latest Cloud reflectivity enhancement Stories
Imagine futuristic ships shooting salt water into the clouds over the world's oceans to create clouds that reflect sunlight. Sounds like science fiction, but it could be reality before too long.
According to new research, whitening clouds by spraying them with seawater could do more harm than good for climate change.
One proposed emergency fix to halt global warming is to seed clouds over the ocean to make them more reflective, reducing the solar radiation absorbed by the Earth.
Computer models show how skyborne seawater particles change cloud brightness, temperature, rain patterns.
Geoengineering - deliberately manipulating physical, chemical, or biological aspects of the Earth system to confront climate change â€“ could contribute to a comprehensive risk management strategy to slow climate change but could also create considerable new risks, according to a policy statement released by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) today.
