Air pollution

Extreme air pollution in Asia impacts the world’s weather and climate patterns, according to a study conducted by Texas A&M University and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory researchers.

Using climate models and data collected about aerosols and meteorology over the past 30 years, the researchers found that air pollution over Asia — much of it coming from China — is impacting global air circulations.

According to Renyi Zhang, Atmospheric Sciences Professor at Texas A&M University, “The models clearly show that air pollution has effects on cloud formations, precipitation, storm intensity and other factors that eventually impacts climate.”

The study was published on Nature Journal and TAMU Journal.
