Los Alamos National Laboratory Scientists have uncovered key attributes of so-called “brown carbon” from wildfires. Scientists have uncovered key attributes of so-called “brown carbon” from wildfires, airborne atmospheric particles that may have influenced current climate models that failed to take the material’s warming effects into account. The work was described by a collaborative team of researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University and the...

New Study Suggests Saharan Dust Is Key To The Formation Of The Bahamas Islands

University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science UM Rosenstiel scientists studied how fertilization of region could trigger carbonate formation A new study suggests that Saharan dust played a major role in the formation of the Bahamas islands. Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science showed that iron-rich Saharan dust provides the nutrients necessary for specialized bacteria to produce the island chain's...

USDA In the first broad-scale estimate of air pollution removal by trees nationwide, U.S. Forest Service scientists and collaborators calculated that trees are saving more than 850 human lives a year and preventing 670,000 incidences of acute respiratory symptoms. While trees’ pollution removal equated to an average air quality improvement of less than 1 percent, the impacts of that improvement are substantial. Researchers valued the human health effects of the reduced air pollution...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe online Globally, wildfires are responsible for creating veritable ecological wastelands across millions of hectares of land each year. As the effects of climate change have become ever more pronounced over the previous years, we have seen both the number and severity of wildfires increase drastically. As reported on redOrbit last year, the increasing number of wildfires has been sending both carbon monoxide and other toxins streaming into...

BMJ-British Medical Journal But picture less clear for impact on heart attack and stroke risk, large study finds But its impact on directly boosting the risk of heart attacks and stroke is rather less clear, the research indicates. The evidence suggests that high levels of certain air pollutants are associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular problems, but exactly how this association works has not been clarified. The research team therefore set out to explore the short term...

pollen in the atmosphere

Marlene Cimons, National Science Foundation Researchers study water cycle and cloud formation and design computer algorithm models to understand impact In the past, many atmospheric scientists believed that pollen particles probably had a negligible effect on climate because they were so big. In recent years, however, as they began to realize that pollen particles were not as sturdy as they once thought, they have been rethinking their old assumptions. "Pollen can rupture and...

Evaluating one way of how clouds can form. To understand this method it’s important to understand a few terms. The first one is Cloud Condensation Nuclei. The CCN can consist of anything from dust, dirt, salt anything that is floating in the air. The second thing is moisture. There must be moisture present in the atmosphere to condense on the CCN to form a droplet. Next step to the process is what is known as collision and coalescence. This is the process of many CCN’s running...
