A new study funded by CVP finds unexpected long-range links between aerosol particle source, especially smoke, and atmospheric processes including cloud formation and radiative properties.
An AC4-funded research study finds model bias related to aerosol concentrations compared to global aircraft field data, and corrects the bias using improved precipitation representation.
Using data from the FIREX-AQ field campaign, a new AC4-funded research study develops a comparison between aerosol concentration and the way aerosol particles scatter light in the atmosphere, offering new insights into wildfire smoke evolution.
This fact sheet summarizes NOAA’s efforts to improve the understanding of the impact of aerosols on weather, air quality and climate.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
