According to a recent study published in the journal Science Advances, air pollution not only affects air quality, but it also changes the pathways along which new particles are formed in the atmosphere.
Team praises widespread commitment but calls for broader participation to better protect global marine ecosystems.
Federal regulators require social media personalities to alert their viewers to promotional payments for products and gadgets shown on their channels, but an analysis by Princeton University researchers shows that such disclosures are rare.
Soot from road traffic in emerging countries can reach high altitudes, where it can be transported over long distances and thus contributes to global warming. The reduction of pollutants from road traffic such as soot particles from diesel cars should therefore have high priority in order to both protect the health of the population in the growing conurbations of emerging countries and reduce global warming, wrote a an international research team in Atmospheric Environment.
Young black Americans are two times more likely to die from firearms than whites, according to a new study published in BMJ Evidence-Base Medicine. Columbia University professors contributed to the study, which is among the first to evaluate firearm injury deaths based on life expectancy and quantify the magnitude of years lost among black and white Americans.
Researchers from CIRAD and the FAO establish coefficients for carbon storage in the soil and aboveground and belowground biomass of different agroforestry systems. The new data will be taken into account in the improved 2006 IPCC National GHG Inventory Guidelines. This work is published in the journal Environmental Research Letters.
Population data for European mountain birds have been for the first time combined in a recent study, with worrying results: the abundances of mountain-specialist birds has declined by as much as 10% in the 2000s.
Research published in The Lancet on December 5 revealed that harmful and unfounded myths about migration and health have become accepted and that these are used to justify policies of exclusion.
Organically farmed food has a bigger climate impact than conventionally farmed food, due to the greater areas of land required. This is the finding of a new international study involving Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, published in the journal Nature.
Climate change in the Arctic means more winter rain, and consequently more rain falling on snow. The result can be a buildup of ice under the snow, which can wreak havoc with arctic ecosystems.
