The Effects of Atmospheric Particles on Climate

In this video produced by ThinkTV, see how atmospheric particles, or aerosols, can affect regional climate change. It is commonly assumed that climate changes involve atmospheric warming, but some particles, such as sulfates, can actually cool the atmosphere. Dramatic images adapted from NOAA reveal the regions where atmospheric particles are concentrated, and their patterns of movement around the globe. Researchers continue to investigate the role of aerosols in regional, and ultimately global, climate change.
