UC Berkeley chemists have analyzed the isotopic composition of nitrous oxide – a greenhouse gas - in air samples from as far back as 1940 and found the fingerprint of nitrogen-based fertilizer, proving definitively that the 20 percent increase in atmospheric nitrogen since the Industrial Revolution is largely due to the Green After carbon dioxide and methane, nitrous oxide (N2O) is the most potent greenhouse gas, trapping heat and contributing to global warming. Last summer research flights with the zeppelin were Each of the layouts has a specific scientific focus point: new particle formation, photochemistry, and secondary organic aerosol – together covering a wide range of atmospheric physics and chemistry. Department of Energy's Office of Science has provided greater definition to the role of black carbon in climate change. Observations show increases in globally averaged air and ocean temperatures, as well as widespread melting of snow and ice and rising globally . But no one who argues against the science of climate change has ever provided an alternative scientific theory that adequately satisfies the observable evidence or conforms to our understanding of physics, chemistry, and climate dynamics.”. The effect of climate change on European air quality levels has been investigated in earlier studies, for example, [6, 7], but larger effects can be expected over urban areas and during pollution episodes . A third reason is that climate can be affected by slowly changing factors such as human-induced changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere, which alter the natural greenhouse effect. Monsoon climate." Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, 11, 1929-1948. At Publisher · View at Google Scholar · View at Scopus; A. On-going research sponsored by the U.S. Two sooty accounts of PNNL scientists were the first to show how a layer of soot on snow increased the surface air temperature between 0.1 and 1.0°C over the majority of the snow-covered areas in the western United States. Top climate scientist James Hansen tells the story of his involvement in the science of and debate over global climate change. Professor Oppenheimer is a well known proponent of the anthropogenic cause of global warming. Warming of the climate system now is unequivocal, according to many different kinds of evidence. As part of PEGASOS (Pan-European Gas-AeroSOls-climate interactions Study), an international group of scientists studies the effect of human emissions to climate change. He has strong credentials in the study of interstellar chemistry and physics and some significant work in atmospheric sciences. Kleeman, “Quantifying population exposure to airborne particulate matter during extreme events in California due to climage change,” Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions, vol. There are direct health impacts from heat waves and severe storms, ailments caused or exacerbated by air pollution and airborne allergens, and many climate-sensitive infectious diseases.” As with the fiscal and Einstein did.
