Researchers have developed global forecasts that can provide up to a year's advance notice of marine heatwaves, sudden and pronounced increases in ocean temperatures that can dramatically affect ocean ecosystems.
These urban mitigation policies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions can worsen air quality and cause premature deaths if coemitted pollutants are not accounted for.
New research demonstrates the presence of solid organic-coated ammonium sulfate particles in the Arctic boundary layer. As the Arctic loses ice, researchers expect to see more of these unique particles formed from oceanic emissions combined with ammonia from birds, that can change how clouds form and climate.
