Oxidising atmosphere of Mars created by microbes

Astronomers suggest that the oxidising atmosphere of Mars was created when microbes began to respire and produce oxygen.

Aerosols cause increased cloud formation in the Arctic worsening climate warming

Scientists now believe that cloud formation in the arctic, caused by iodine aerosols, worsens climate warming in the region.

Sudden stratospheric warming above the North Pole could lead to catastrophic weather events in the coming weeks

A research project suggests that sudden stratospheric warming will occur this week, resulting in snowstorms and catastrophic weather events.

Improved simulations of arctic sea ice could help protect the environment

Researchers evaluated arctic sea ice simulations to improve the prediction of the ice in different seasons.

Atmospheric Science

Atmospheric science is the study of the dynamics and chemistry of the layer of gas surrounding planetary bodies and their moons.

The field of atmospheric science encompasses the interactions between such parts of the atmosphere and how they react with organic systems.

Here you can find all the latest research and discovery in the field of atmospheric science.
