Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle and Climate (AC4)

AC4-funded project publishes paper on marine stratocumulus cloud formation

With funding from CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4), researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory sought to understand why some marine stratocumulus clouds form “open cells” while others form “closed cells,” even when the background whether conditions are similar.

Researchers find that a changing atmosphere affects how much water trees require

Spurred by increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, forests over the past two decades have become dramatically more efficient in how they use water, a Harvard study has found. The research was supported by a grant from the NOAA Climate Program Office’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate Program, which funded the synthesis of data from research sites across the northeastern United States.

CPO-supported study finds that black carbon is a larger cause of climate change than previously assessed

Soot, also known as black carbon and a component of carbonaceous aerosols, is the second largest man-made contributor to global warming, and its influence on climate has been greatly underestimated, according to a new international study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Atmospheres today.
