Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) is the measure of aerosol distributed with a Column of air from earth’s surface to the top of atmosphere, in this study, temperature variation of aerosol optical depth (AOD) in Baghdad was analyzed Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) from Terra and its relationship with temperature for the period 2003 – 2015 were examined. The highest values for mean seasonal AOD were observed in spring and summer and the maximum AOD values ranged from 0.50 to 0.58 by…

Influence of Meteorological Parameters on the Dynamics of Ozone and Aerosol Particles Near a Road Transport Street
Car transport is one of the potential ozone precursors and the source of aerosol particulate emissions. Since the number of cars on the streets increases with each passing year, it is evident that


Impact of anthropogenic aerosols on climate variability over Central Africa by using a regional climate model
In the present study, we have investigated the impacts of anthropogenic aerosols on some relevant atmospheric parameters such as temperature, precipitation, wind and shortwave radiation. For this
A review of measurement-based assessments of the aerosol direct radiative effect and forcing
Aerosols affect the Earth's energy budget directly by scattering and absorbing radiation and indirectly by acting as cloud condensation nuclei and, thereby, affecting cloud properties. However, large
Impact of aerosol?meteorology interactions on fine particle pollution during China?s severe haze episode in January 2013
In January 2013, a severe regional haze occurred over the North China Plain. An online-coupled meteorology-chemistry model was employed to simulate the impacts of aerosol?meteorology interactions on
Biomass Burning in the Tropics: Impact on Atmospheric Chemistry and Biogeochemical Cycles
Widespread burning of biomass serves to clear land for shifting cultivation, to convert forests to agricultural and pastoral lands, and to remove dry vegetation in order to promote agricultural productivity and the growth of higher yield grasses, but it may also disturb biogeochemical cycles, especially that of nitrogen.
Mass concentration and elemental composition of airborne particulate matter at street and background locations
Abstract Daytime PM10, PM2.5 and black smoke concentrations were measured simultaneously near a busy road and at a background location in two cities in the Netherlands. The elemental composition of
