Study: Asian Air Pollution Affecting Weather, Climate Patterns

From NASA and Texas A&M


Asia's growing air pollution—much of it coming from China—is affecting the world's weather and climate patterns, researchers, including an Indian-origin scientist, have warned. 

The extreme pollution from Asia affects cloud formations, precipitation, storm intensity and other factors and eventually impacts climate, according to a study by Texas A&M University and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory researchers.
