New study explains how to broaden strategy to avert catastrophic climate change

Slashing emissions of carbon dioxide, by itself, cannot prevent catastrophic global warming. But a new study concludes that a strategy that simultaneously reduces emissions of other largely neglected climate pollutants would ...

Discovering a new way by which aerosols rapidly form and grow at high altitude

Aerosol particles can form and grow in Earth's upper troposphere in an unexpected way, reports the CLOUD collaboration in a paper published today in Nature. The new mechanism may represent a major source of cloud and ice ...

Smoke from wildfires ages in the atmosphere

Emissions, like smoke from wildfires and exhaust from vehicles, go through chemical changes when they enter the atmosphere. New research from the University of Georgia shows, for the first time, that these changes may affect ...

How mechanical ventilation affects the trajectories of aerosols that may carry viral particles

We have known for a longtime now that the COVID-19 virus, SARS-CoV-2 is a mostly airborne disease. Ventilation of indoor spaces is therefore one of the most useful ways in which we can keep people safe. Research in the International ...
