Light amplification accelerates chemical reactions in aerosols

Aerosols in the atmosphere react to incident sunlight. This light is amplified in the interior of the aerosol droplets and particles, accelerating reactions. ETH researchers have now been able to demonstrate and quantify ...

Classifying weather to tease out how aerosols influence storms

A new study used artificial intelligence to analyze 10 years of weather data collected over southeastern Texas to identify three major categories of weather patterns and the continuum of conditions between them. The study, ...

How do marine gases affect cloud formation?

Studying the global climate—and how it's changing—involves examining thousands of small processes, chemical mechanisms, local weather phenomena, and more. One of the many factors scientists consider when studying the ...

Biomass burning increases low clouds over southeastern Asia

Clouds have significant impact on the energy balance of the Earth system. Low clouds such as Stratocumulus, Cumulus and Stratus cover about 30 percent of the Earth surface and have a net cooling effect on our climate. What ...

Long-term measurements show how the climate is changing

Twenty years of measurements are only the beginning. Long-term measurements over several decades are crucial to enable predictions of how airborne particles affect the future climate, according to Lund University researcher ...
