  • Bibliometric analysis of aerosol research in meteorology and atmospheric sciences

    A bibliometric method was developed to investigate the aerosol research based on the papers from 1991 to 2009 in Science Citation Index Expanded, the Thomson Reuters. The analysed aspects covered scientific output and citation tracking on the basis of journal patterns; country; institute and author research performances. Improved indicators Peak–Year Citation per Publication and Relative ...

  • Science and policy challenges of atmospheric modelling in consideration of health effects

    Next generation atmospheric models are required to provide a realistic assessment of different types of chronic and acute environmental conditions and forecast the consequences on population health. These tasks were usually carried out with epidemiological studies, which are not adequate to indicate health effects. Therefore, models should be capable to carry out hazard identification, ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • The Dyson effect: carbon "offset" forestry and the privatisation of the atmosphere

    This paper examines the increasingly fashionable view that vast tree plantations are a viable way of mitigating the climatic effects of industrial carbon dioxide emissions. It argues that this approach to global warming is based on bad science, enlarges rather than reduces richer societies' ecological footprint, and reinforces neo-colonialist structures of power.Keywords: carbon sinks, ...

  • Idealized Air Quality Regulation: A One-Atmosphere Approach

    After almost 40 years of experience with the U.S. Clean Air Act (CAA), many of the original goals of the regulation have been achieved. The CAA and its subsequent amendments have been driven largely by science and technology, linking the Earth’s atmosphere with public health and welfare and sources of pollution. Knowledge in the 1960s about the atmosphere that ...

  • The Science Behind the U.S. Drought

    Heat and drought continue to blanket the United States, leaving 54 percent of the nation’s pasture and rangeland, 38 percent of its corn crop, and 30 percent of soybeans in “poor” or “very poor” condition. As of the end of June, 55 percent of the contiguous U.S. was experiencing moderate or extreme drought – the most ...

  • Climate Science Survey. Questions and Responses

    In the Spring of 2012, PBL held a survey among 1868 scientists studying various aspects of climate change, including physical climate, climate impacts, and mitigation. The main results of the survey were published in an article in Environmental Science and Technology (ES&T) in August 2014: Scientists’ views about attribution of global warming. It showed that there is widespread ...

  • `Atmospheric Composition in Two Contrasting Megacities` - PhD studentship available.

    A PhD studentship with CERC CASE support, 'Atmospheric Composition in Two Contrasting Megacities', is available at the University of Edinburgh, to commence in September 2015. Project background Air pollution is an environmental factor that has huge impact on human health globally1 , especially in densely populated Megacities. The figure opposite shows that > 80% of the urban ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in the European Atmosphere: An Updated Overview

    The industrial revolution and the resultant technological society have led to a continuous production and emission of new toxic substances causing gradual and widely diffuse adverse effects to the entire planet usually known as Global Environmental Changes. Climate change, ozone depletion and global distribution of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are, among other, important examples of ...


  • Climate science in Australia with particular reference to climate change

    The factors governing the global circulation of the atmosphere are briefly discussed and the unique situation in the Southern Hemisphere is described. The El Nino-Southern Oscillation phenomenon exerts a major influence on the climate of the Pacific and leads to extreme variability of climate. Any changes due to human-induced greenhouse gas emissions must be set against this variability. Models ...

  • Ocean science for sustainable development: Facts and figures

    Sarah Grimes explores why we need good ocean monitoring, how to get it, and why it still fails Small Island Developing States. Oceans are a critically important component of the Earth system, supporting ecosystem and human health. They regulate the weather and climate; are essential for producing freshwater; and soak up ...

  • Competitive interactions between cultivated and red rice as a function of recent and projected increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide

    Because wild lines of the same species often represent a weedy constraint to cultivated crops in the field, any differential response to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, [CO2], may alter weed–crop competition and seed yield. We evaluated the growth and reproduction of cultivated rice (Oryza sativa L.; Clearfield, CL161) and red or weedy rice (Stuttgart, StgS) in monoculture, and at two ...

  • Nano-scale modification and doping of diamond: interesting science and promising technology

    Diamond is a unique material with outstanding physical and chemical properties. Among these are very unusual properties of the diamond surface; i.e., its negative electron affinity when hydrogen terminated (i.e., 'negative work-function') and the p-type 2D electrical conductivity it shows (when exposed to different atmospheres). These make diamond a material of choice for the fundamental study of ...

  • NASA Science Zeros in on Ocean Rise: How Much? How Soon?

    Seas around the world have risen an average of nearly 3 inches since 1992, with some locations rising more than 9 inches due to natural variation, according to the latest satellite measurements from NASA and its partners. An intensive research effort now underway, aided by NASA observations and analysis, points to an unavoidable rise of several feet in the future. Members of NASA's new ...

  • The domino effect in climate change

    This paper provides a concise summary of the natural and the anthropogenic greenhouse effect and the major causes for climate change. This summary may be particularly accessible for readers who are not familiar with natural sciences. Building on these explanations, we develop a simplifying atmospheric model that demonstrates a widely unknown aspect of global warming: the greenhouse effect ...

  • Effects of meteorological parameters on RSPM concentration in urban Delhi

    The adverse effect of Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM) has become a well-recognised problem in environmental science. Dispersion and dilution of air pollutants are strongly influenced by meteorological parameters, namely wind, turbulence, and atmospheric stability. The analysis of Delhi's air quality data shows that winter is the most critical season with respect to the ...
