Emission of trace gases and aerosols from biomass burning
A large body of information on emissions from the various types of biomass burning has been accumulated over the past decade, to a large extent as a result of International Geosphere-BiosphereExpand

Oceanic phytoplankton, atmospheric sulphur, cloud albedo and climate
The major source of cloud-condensation nuclei (CCN) over the oceans appears to be dimethylsulphide, which is produced by planktonic algae in sea water and oxidizes in the atmosphere to form aExpand

Aerosol cloud precipitation interactions. Part 1. The nature and sources of cloud-active aerosols
Abstract Atmospheric aerosol particles serve as condensation nuclei for the formation of both, cloud droplets and atmospheric ice particles. As a result, they exert a substantial influence on theExpand

Smoking Rain Clouds over the Amazon
Heavy smoke from forest fires in the Amazon was observed to reduce cloud droplet size and so delay the onset of precipitation from 1.5 kilometers above cloud base in pristine clouds to more than 5Expand

Black carbon or brown carbon? The nature of light-absorbing carbonaceous aerosols
Although the definition and measurement techniques for atmospheric "black carbon" ("BC") or "elemental carbon'' ("EC") have long been subjects of scientific controversy, the recent discovery ofExpand

Biomass Burning in the Tropics: Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry and Biogeochemical Cycles
Biomass burning is widespread, especially in the tropics. It serves to clear land for shifting cultivation, to convert forests to agricultural and pastoral lands, and to remove dry vegetation inExpand

Formation of Secondary Organic Aerosols Through Photooxidation of Isoprene
Detailed organic analysis of natural aerosols from the Amazonian rain forest showed considerable quantities of previously unobserved polar organic compounds, which were identified as a mixture of twoExpand

Flux of dimethylsulfide from the oceans: A comparison of updated data sets and flux models
Estimates of the fluxes of dimethylsulfide (DMS) from the global oceans are calculated using the parameterizations of Lisps and Merlivat [1986], Wanninkhof [1992], and Erickson [1993]; the windExpand

Atmospheric aerosols: Biogeochemical sources and role in atmospheric chemistry
Atmospheric aerosols play important roles in climate and atmospheric chemistry: They scatter sunlight, provide condensation nuclei for cloud droplets, and participate in heterogeneous chemicalExpand
