Dust in the clouds: Cirrus clouds form around mineral dust and metallic particles

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Cirrus clouds influence global climate, cooling the planet by reflecting incoming solar radiation and warming it by trapping outgoing heat. Understanding the mechanisms by which these clouds form may help scientists better predict f...

Brighter clouds, cooler climate? Organic vapors affect clouds, leading to previously unidentified climate cooling

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Scientists have shown that natural emissions and humanmade pollutants can both have an unexpected cooling effect on Earth's climate by making clouds brighter.

Some forestlands cool climate better without trees, study finds

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Forests worldwide are increasingly used to store carbon as a way to slow climate change, but a new study finds that some wooded areas may be more valuable without trees, allowing the cleared landscape to reflect rather than absorb t...

Thin tropical clouds cool the climate

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

Thin clouds at about 5 km altitude are more ubiquitous in the tropics than previously thought and they have a substantial cooling effect on climate. This is shown in a recent study by researchers from Stockholm University and the Un...

Trees are much better at creating clouds and cooling the climate than we thought

Issues & Causes / Environmentalism : Physorg: Earth

The pre-industrial atmosphere contained more particles, and so brighter clouds, than we previously thought. This is the latest finding of the CLOUD experiment, a collaboration between around 80 scientists at the CERN particle physic...
