Latest Stratospheric sulfur aerosols Stories
Of all the factors that influence Earth's changing climate, the effect that tiny particles in Earth's atmosphere called aerosols have on clouds is the least well understood.
The colors used by legendary artists of the past to depict a sunset could be used to estimate pollution levels in the atmosphere during bygone days, according to research published Tuesday in the open-access journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory report they have found that volcanic eruptions in the early part of the 21st century have cooled the planet.
A special issue of the journal Climate Change, titled “Geoengineering Research and its Limitations,” addresses these technologies, as well as barriers, ethics and regulations.
How severely have volcanoes contaminated the atmosphere with sulfur particles in past millennia?
A new study on cloud formation shows that climate change models may have underestimated the cooling effect of sulfur aerosol particles in the atmosphere.
A new study adds another dimension to the role played by plants in curbing global warming by showing that they are also natural aerosols that assist in cloud formation and atmospheric cooling.
Global warming was slowed between 2000 and 2010 because of sulfur dioxide spewed forth by volcanoes, researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claim in a new study.
A team of atmosphere chemists has devised a chemical trick for determining which historical cooling periods are the results of volcanic eruptions.
Atmospheric aerosol particles have a significant effect on climate.
