New insights into how black carbon aerosols impact the atmospheric boundary layer

(Desert Research Institute) It is widely known that soot particles emitted from South Asia are spread across the northern Indian Ocean during the winter monsoon season. New research led by Eric Wilcox, Ph.D, an atmospheric scientist at Nevada's Desert Research Institute, outlines new insights into how these high concentrations of black carbon aerosols may also reduce atmospheric turbulence and enhance relative humidity near the Earth's surface, exacerbating both human health impacts and extreme weather events.
