  • New approach improves accuracy of aerosol measurements on cloudy days

    Satellites taking atmospheric measurements might now be able to see blue skies as clearly as optimists do. Researchers have found a way to reduce cloud-induced glare when satellites measure blue skies on cloudy days, by as much as ten-fold in some cases. The result might lead to more accurate estimates of the amount of sunlight penetrating the atmosphere. Because clouds represent one of the ...

  • Far Ultraviolet light and organic aerosols in titan and early earth atmospheres

    The atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan appears as a thick orange haze, as a result of large hydrocarbons and organic aerosols. In the upper atmosphere, bombardment by extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation (wavelength 10-124 nm) and energetic particles produces large hydrocarbons via ion reactions. In the middle atmosphere (150-700 km altitude) these gaseous hydrocarbons are converted into ...

  • Can rain clean the atmosphere?

    Original story at MIT News As a raindrop falls through the atmosphere, it can attract tens to hundreds of tiny aerosol particles to its surface before hitting the ground. The process by which droplets and aerosols attract is coagulation, a natural phenomenon that can act to clear the air of pollutants like soot, sulfates, ...
