Fiery Origin Of Climate-Warming Aerosols
Wildfires have burned nearly 2 million acres in the U.S. so far this year, underscoring the importance of a study that provides better insight into the climate effects of organic aerosol particles emitted into the atmosphere from burning forests, grasslands, and farmland. Climate models have historically divided airborne particulate matter produced by biomass burning into two categories: light-absorbing black carbon (soot) that warms the climate and light-scattering organic aerosols that . . .
