  • World Meteorological Day | At the frontline of climate action

    2024-03-23

    World Meteorological Day, also known as "International Meteorological Day", is the anniversary of the establishment of the World Meteorological Organization and is held on March 23 every year. The main purpose of carrying out World Meteorological Day activities is to let people of all countries understand and support the activities of the World Meteorological Organization, to arouse people's attention and love for meteorological work, and to promote the application of meteorology in aviation, navigation, water conservancy, agriculture and other human activities. The theme of World Meteorological Day 2024 is “At the frontline of climate action”.

    https://wmo.int/site/world-meteorological-day-2024

    Since the 1980s, each decade has been warmer than the previous decade. 2023 is the hottest year on record, with global average temperatures about 1.45℃ above the 1850-1900 average. This is largely the result of a combination of human activities and the natural phenomenon of El Niño. Rising temperatures are accompanied by more extreme events: heat waves, floods, droughts, wildfires and rapidly intensifying tropical cyclones.

    The threat of climate change to human civilization is real and undeniable, and its effects are already being felt. Unless we act now, the results will be catastrophic. Our Journal of Atmospheric Science Research (JASR) will continue to provide an open, rigorous, and professional academic platform for scientific researchers, and we welcome scholars from all over the world to choose our journal to disseminate and publish more relevant research.

  • Aerosols from coniferous forests no longer cool the climate as much

    2019-09-29
    Emissions of greenhouse gases have a warming effect on the climate, whereas small airborne particles in the atmosphere, aerosols, act as a cooling mechanism. That is the received wisdom in any case. However, new research can now show that the tiniest aerosols are increasing at the expense of the normal sized and slightly larger aerosols -- and it is only the latter that have a cooling effect.(Lund University) Read more about Aerosols from coniferous forests no longer cool the climate as much
  • Air pollution linked to risk of premature death

    2019-08-28

    Exposure to toxic air pollutants is linked to increased cardiovascular and respiratory death rates, according to a new international study by researchers from Monash University (Australia) and abroad.

    The study, led by Dr Haidong Kan from Fudan University in China, analysed data on air pollution and mortality in 652 cities across 24 countries and regions, and found increases in total deaths are linked to exposure to inhalable particles (PM10) and fine particles (PM2.5) emitted from fires or formed through atmospheric chemical transformation.
