Rapid action needed to protect ozone layer against new source of illegal chemical emissions
Researchers from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science have assessed the impacts of a new source of an ozone-destroying chemical that poses a serious threat to the recovery of the ozone layer.
However, if rapid action is taken to curtail the illegal emissions then scientists are hopeful there will be no significant delay to the recovery of the ozone layer.
Weather in Malaysia provides early winter forecasts
Want to know the next month’s weather for Manchester? You might be better off taking a look at Malaysia.
Scientists at the University of Reading and European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) have uncovered a new link between conditions in the tropics and the weather in Europe, allowing scientists to improve the accuracy of early UK winter forecasts.
New holographic system will capture images of entire cloud droplet populations in high resolution
Researchers from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science are developing new holographic imaging systems for studying cloud particles in the laboratory.
The new system will capture images of cloud droplets at a very high speed, with the entire sample of particles in focus. This allows scientists to identify and track the movement of specific particles over a short space of time.
