Smoking out the dangers

Increasingly large and intense wildfires in the Pacific Northwest of the US are altering the seasonal pattern of air pollution and causing a spike in unhealthy pollutants in August, new research appears to find. The smoke seems to be undermining clean air gains, posing potential risks to the health of millions.

Aerosol appraisal

What is purported to be the first global map of cargo ship pollution has revealed interesting effects including the apparent impact of fuel regulations. The "ship tracks" in clouds, which the study measured, also appear to be helpful in explaining how particulate matter both interacts with clouds and affects global temperatures.
