Laboratory chamber walls have been stealing vapors, causing researchers to underestimate the formation of secondary organic aerosol in the atmosphere. A study published April 7 in PNAS Online Early Edition describes how a team of scientists, including researchers from the University of California, Davis, showed that vapor losses to the walls of laboratory chambers can suppress the formation of secondary organic aerosol, which in turn has contributed to the underprediction of SOA in climate...

Dust Kicked Up In Asia Strengthens Monsoons In India
2014-03-17 10:18:29

Mary Beckman, DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory A new analysis of satellite data reveals a link between dust in North Africa and West Asia and stronger monsoons in India. The study shows that dust in the air absorbs sunlight west of India, warming the air and strengthening the winds carrying moisture eastward. This results in more monsoon rainfall about a week later in India. The results explain one way that dust can affect the climate, filling in previously unknown details about...

Nature: Researchers discover source of climate-active organic aerosol particles According to their results, these extremely low-volatile organic compounds consist of relatively large molecules which contain an almost equal number of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen atoms. The scientists present a plausible explanation supported by numerous experimental findings of how these vapours are formed almost immediately when plant emissions (e.g. monoterpenes) are released into the air. The vapours can...

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...
