Atmosphere: Finding the Missing Particles

May 13, 2015 — For the past 20 years, a large portion of the particles measured in the atmosphere were missing from models. At best, models were able to explain one-tenth of the carbon-rich secondary organic ... read more

May 12, 2015 — A strong connection between high ozone days in the western US during late spring and La Nina, an ocean-atmosphere phenomena that affects global weather patterns, has been identified by researchers. ... read more

May 11, 2015 — The underlying physical process that creates striking 'breaking wave' cloud patterns in our atmosphere also frequently opens the gates to high-energy solar wind plasma that perturbs ... read more

May 4, 2015 — The main job of pollen is to help seed the next generation of trees and plants, but a new study shows that the grains might also seed ... read more

Unexplained Gap in Global Emissions of HFCs, Potent Greenhouse Gases, Resolved

Apr. 27, 2015 — Reported emissions of a group of potent greenhouse gases from developed countries are shown to be largely accurate, but for the wrong reasons, according to new ... read more

Apr. 29, 2015 — The composition and radiative effect of desert aerosols have been analyzed by researchers. Results show that the intrusion of dust from the Sahara Desert caused radiative cooling of the Earth's ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Tropical Pacific climate variations and their global weather impacts may be predicted much further in advance than previously thought, according to research by an international team of climate ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Air pollution could be spreading up to three times farther than thought, contributing to varying levels of air quality across cities, a trio of recently published studies from a team of engineers has ... read more

Soil Nutrients May Limit Ability of Plants to Slow Climate Change

Apr. 20, 2015 — Many scientists assume that the growing level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will accelerate plant growth. However, a new study suggests much of this growth will be curtailed by limited soil ... read more

Actual Dating Requires Calibration Down to the Last Ion

Apr. 15, 2015 — A new solution accurately counting the exact amounts of ions from laboratory radiation exposure helps to simulate the natural radiation of quartz samples used for thermoluminescence dating. ... read more

Comparing Climate Models to Real World Shows Differences in Precipitation Intensity

Apr. 17, 2015 — Precipitation is difficult to represent in global climate models. Although most single-column models can reproduce the observed average precipitation reasonably well, there are significant ... read more

Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Limits Soil Storage

Apr. 15, 2015 — Soil carbon may not be as stable as previously thought, scientists report, adding that soil microbes exert more direct control on carbon buildup than global climate models represent. This study, ... read more

Competition Not Concentration Matters When Forming Cloud-Influencing Aerosols

Apr. 13, 2015 — The amount of secondary organic aerosol (SOA) produced from isoprene released by trees as well as the SOA volatility are more accurately tied to interactions with electron-rich, carbon-based ... read more

Heat's Role in the Madden-Julian Oscillation

Apr. 10, 2015 — Tropical monsoons in Indonesia and floods in the United States are both provoked by the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), yet, despite its importance, global models often struggle to simulate it ... read more
