Computer models show how skyborne seawater particles change cloud brightness, temperature, rain patterns.
â€œBlue haze,â€ a common occurrence that appears over heavily forested areas around the world, is formed by natural emissions of chemicals, but human activities can worsen it to the point of affecting the worldâ€™s weather and even cause potential climate problems.
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.
Global warming may include some periods of local cooling, according to a new study by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.
Plants absorbed carbon dioxide more efficiently under the polluted skies of recent decades than they would have done in a cleaner atmosphere, according to new findings published this week in Nature.
Certain geoengineering schemes could be complementary to proposed cuts in greenhouse gas emissions aimed at fighting global climate change, researchers reported on Tuesday.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Scientists need a more detailed understanding of how human-produced atmospheric particles, called aerosols, affect climate in order to produce better predictions of Earth's future climate, according to a NASA-led report issued by the U.S.
